A Couple Questions

1. Are dual exhausts coming straight back from the headers and not connecting in any way, just going straight back with mufflers, stock on a 1989 Mustang GT 5.0?

2. Has anyone else every had their brake light for the E-brake come on randomly every now and again?

3. Does anyone have any hints on how to get glue off of the rear hatch where tint came off the window? Would you use like paint thinner/ stripper or some kind of goof off?

thanks guys

1. No. They connect via a h-pipe after the headers.
2. Never happened to me but sounds like a malfunctioning activation switch. Would be located around the ebrake lever
3. Goo-b-gone works pretty good.

If you are not working around a rear window defrosting grid, you can use a razor bladed scraper to remove almost all of it pretty easily.

Ill check the brake fluid for sure. I never thought of that.

There is a defroster system on there. I dont really think it works to well. Ill try that goof off and hopefully that will work for me.

Tyhanks for letting me know about the exhaust. I thought that system was after market.

Your car will run and sound better with an H or X-pipe.

Cause I said so.



Through an H or X pipe the exhaust gases from each side mix and that smooths out the cylinder pulses so it improves and balances the flow.

As far as taking of tint goes I swear by rubbing alcohol. I tried everything. But if you just use it in a spray bottle it works great. But be careful that stuff has some pretty bad fumes.

I imagine. I would pry have the hatch completely open if I used the rubbing alcohol method. Pry will for any of the method. Thanks guys for all the awesome input.
