    Mike, I've got a Ford Racing 306 in my FFR complete kit type 65 coupe #590, Mk 2.0 with the FFR Vintage Air conditioning kit. I need power steering; can you give me advice? I'm close to finishing the car - door weatherstripping, windows, carpet...

    Second question. I'd like power brakes as well but I didn't want to go with the Whitby setup and cut the frame. I have the Wilwood pedal box and a CNC triple brake fluid reservoir.

    And finally I saw this on the forum: "Hydroboost is your only other option. Relatively easy if you already have power steering. Not so easy if you have to add a pump."

    Hi Mr. Dougherty; My name is Jerry Oesterreich. I recently recently requested some info on Electric power steering for my Mk3.1 roadster, 4.6, auto trans, preferably a bolt-on kit to replace my manual rack and pinion. You indicated Eric Hansen as a builder of such kits and I would appreciate further info. If you prefer, you can send me an email: [email protected], or any other method you desire. Thank you very much.

    Hey Mark, Hope all is well and you have weathered these Nor'easters. I have some work colleagues who are telling me PA got pounded. We dodn;t get it to bad here on the cape, some power outages , but not too bad for snow.

    You know I still have this body right? You still want it?

    Mark, Watching the weather for bringing out Tom's car next weekend, initially not great. Are you home MOnday the 15th? I am off, may be easier for me.

    Also I am doing alot of suspension work, and will discuss springs with you, and probably a corner weight session in mid-MArch.

    Thanks for asking. I bought a Fastrax and retuned the suspension and alignment. I increases the caster to 8*, highway driving is now a pleasure. Looking forward to auto crossing the car next year.

    I completed my roadster 2 months ago and I noticed at highway speeds the car is very sensitive. the car has PS and a KRC pump with lowest pressure value. During MD safety inspection I sent it to my local mechanic to align with the standard FFR alignment spec. I'm considering increasing the caster to 8* but before that I would like to get your advise on the alignment. I live just south of Baltimore and I can drive to your location. would you be available over the next few week? Or do you think a phone call is all I need?

    Mark: Thanks for getting back to me. Do you have an email address you could share. I have many questions as the Mustang build will be quite a leap for me from the MK4. After studying the suspension upgrade offerings out there, I did decide on using the TCP high HP front clip for my Mustang. I will likely use their rear suspension with the mini-tubs too so that I can put some bigger rubber on the car. The build will get started slowly, just planning the tear down and clean up for this year. I will move on to starting the front clip and mini-tubs install next year.
    If you come though AZ on your travels, let me know. I am in Prescott about 90 minutes North West of Phoenix.

    Mark: I just brought home a 1970 Mustang Mach 1 that I plan a full restomod build to. I have been researching the aftermarket suspension systems out there and noted on the Total Control Performance web site a customer's 65 Fastback build. Was or is the Mustang shown your car? If it was, can we discuss your experience using the TCP products on your car?

    Hey Mark,

    Would like to talk to you about assisting me with my build. I am outside of Detroit. I am also in the Army and travel quite a bit, so scheduling in the near term may be difficult. Not to mention the current lousy weather we are having.

    Please give me a call when you have a chance so I can give you all the details and we can discuss options.
