    Battery option’s for 2006 Ford Mustang?

    DITTO! I have a couple of antique autos and I charge the batteries every 30 days. On long term storage (over 60 days) I keep a trickle charger on them. Most auto stores will carry these and they are very inexpensive.

    95 Tbird Front Caliper bushings/Dust boot

    Easy, make sure you have a new set of boots first - pretty cheap the the auto parts store. Once you have the new ones then rip out the old ones, then apply a little dish soap to the new ones, to ease installation. I was able to do this with a needle nose plyer and a very dull flat blade...

    1995 & 1997 Crown Victoria P71 cars
