Still learning my way around here. Just found this room.
So, like most everyone else, I'll just post what I change/update on the car in here instead of the "What did you do to your Panther today?" thread.
I picked this car up in February 2020 to replace what I had been driving (got broadsided and totaled). I am the second owner. The original owner was the Federal Gov. It is not a P71, but it did have a set of 4 strobes at some point.As it was the day I bought itTinted Windows
I've done a bunch of other stuff to the car so far.
In order of appearance, sort of...
Replaced LR Window Motor & Regulator
Swapped in Town Car Wood & Leather Steering Wheel w/ Radio Controls
Replaced HVAC Control Module
Rear View Mirror w/ Compass
Swapped Pass Front Door Panel (NO Power Seat) for a NOS panel WITH Power Seat option in preparation for Marauder Seats.
I have the harness but still need to run it. Easy job ...lol
Eibach Front & Rear Anti-Roll Bars
ADTR ZIP Tube
ADTR Ported Plenum
P71 Air Box from TASCA Ford
SCT Tuner & Tunes from MO's Speed Shop

I'm also working on swapping in a Marauder Auxiliary Gauge Pod. I'm using different Autometer gauges though - Water Temp and Transmission Temp. I'm waiting on a few parts to get the water temp gauge working. I'll get the transmission temp gauge working once I do the JMod. I've got all the parts to do the JMod, I'm just not looking forward to the mess.
Anyhow, here's the gauge pod...
I have the metal bracket that the pod snaps in to.
Today the car is in the shop for the long Marauder overhead console and the resulting headliner fix/mod. I ran across a matching "Car Side" plug for the console on ebay. I wired it up and tested it a few days back. It's coiled up in the headliner now, ready to be plugged into the console. I swapped the correct sun visors in yesterday.
That's it so far. The Marauder seats are at the same upholstery shop that is doing the overhead console for me. They're getting tuned up a little. Among other things, the Mercury head that's embossed into the leather is going away. They're also having heat added...maybe A/C too.
This Wednesday the car is going in for a Stainless Works exhaust system. Really looking forward to that.
