Bob, can you check what the shipping would be to SA, I can't log in or register with e-bay, SA is not recognised as actually having a currency to deal with, did e-mail them to complain and they were very helpful..........not. Also do you think I should get a pair, I presume that is $59 a pair. Would be a real improvement over my red valve covers.

It's a good price and other than keeping the hood closed probably one of the best dress ups you can do. :1poke: :D
Sorry, Dayle - it's gonna be a loooong time before you live down that red engine!
I sent an email asking him to figure shipping for me. I will let you know.

Thats it, I have had it, that engine is coming out and going true blue, you should have heard the comments at the petrol station the other night. We stopped to buy a cooldrink at 7.45pm and only left the petrol station at 10.30pm, a guy did a u-turn and came back to the petrol station, pulled up next to us and we stood there chatting for over 2 hours, he has a 73 Mustang 351C. Nice guy, lots of contacts, knows all about our 72, knew both previous owners, etc etc. While we were chatting to him about 6 other cars pulled up over the 2 hours, and I got about 4 comments about 'chevvy colours'. When I go to the show on Saturday I feel like putting up a sign saying we did not paint it red, the PO did, but he may be at the show and he is quite a nice guy, don't want to offend him, ignorance and lack of taste is not a crime.

Thanks for sending the e-mail Bob. :)

You think red is bad?

You think a red engine is bad? My buddy Terry had painted the engine in his 73 Mach 1 yellow at one time. I bugged him incessantly to change it back to Ford blue. It took a few years, but he finally did. Even the shock tower braces were done in yellow and black, but now just all black like they should be.

His car is truly a product of the 70s way of thinking about car modifications. He still even has gold shag carpeting in there. Maybe I'll have to buy him a set of the correct Ginger carpet. At least I got him to remove the hokey prism tape lettering on his front spoiler that said 'Cobra Jet'. *shudder*
