Re: 69 CJ Convert

Looks like a worthy project (for an ECI anyway). The one thing I noticed that I found odd was that the picture of the fuel sender and harness pigtail shows a standard (non Low Fuel) sender. The car should have the LF system as part of the XR7 package so it does not make sense. Thoughts? Fuel sender...

Re: The December 2017 Ride of the Month is Don Stratemeyer's '69 XR-7 Convertible 428 SCJ 4 speed

Very cool and Congrat's Don! Interestingly, I used to work at a garage about 1 mile north of Irwin LM and I bought a Capri RS hood scoop there that I cut the front out of (so it was functional) and installed on "Cleveland Rocks", my '70 HT from back in the day. But, I digress! Congrat's again Don!

Re: 1969 Q Code convertible 4-speed

Yes, it looks a lot like Lin's (and KTL did that one too) but a different car. I am pretty sure it's R...
