I am new here in the sense that I just registered but have been lurking here for some time finding answers to problems I have had on my newly acquired Mustang. I now am the proud owner of a zinc yellow 2002 Mustang
convertible, with very low mileage. I bought it as a project car as it sat for almost two years in the elements without being started, moved or protected in any manner. It has leaks in the top which allowed the trunk to fill with water and standing water on the passenger side rear floor board. Also the driver's door window glass had dropped out of the channel, and someone had opened up the door and bent an arm so that it would hold up the window glass. There are a few minor scrapes and body damage on the front bumper, but nothing a bra cannot cover. Long story short, I got the car cheap, got it home and have dried it out, cleaned it all up, replaced the window regulator (Glass still needs to be glued into the channels), changed all the fluids, and am driving it
. I am going to install a brand new top and am going to try and do it myself.
I am and always have been a backyard mechanic. I am soon to be 65 years old and am retired (fixed income) so cash flow is slim. That is why I try to fix anything myself. This site has provided tons of information and helpful hints and am very happy to now be a new member. Thank You.
