    Thanks.

    I am still waiting on the stripes to come in. I was hoping to install them on a warmer day, as the weather gets colder I am leary of doing it in cold weather and not having them last.

    Funny thing is that I have not driven the car yet, on the streets. My buddy who is a cop has been the one moving it around from place to place. He brought it home and took it to the shop. I only drove it up and down the driveway. So I cant wait..He told me the car is solid and feels very smooth.

    Cant wait to put the wheels on too. It should really set off the car.

    Called the shop up and the car is ready. So trying to make arrangements for PU. Yay. Stripes are supposed to have gotten shipped yesterday. The guy hickupped and forgot to send make them and send them. So I hope to get them next week. This weekend ill be busy putting it back together and doing the hub swap. So Ill be in the garage if anyone needs me.

    I also picked up a cheap Radio from WALMART on sale for $125.00 shipped. It plays DVDs and has AUX inputs. It claims to have Preamp front and rear channels so I will be using those and a Factory JBL sound integration harness. So i dont have to redo the sound system. Im not sure how well it will work so we will see once i put it in there. I am not sure if pre-amp feeds will have enough power to drive the factory amp but Metra claims it works.

    Please put 97 black door handles on it! the factory ones look dull and crappy that is why I changed mine. The rest of it looks great. Makes me wish I still had mine.

    Thanks me too.

    The car is now at home i had to wake up early to go grab it. Needed a new battery so I purchased one from the shop/dealer It says MOPAR on it LOL. I gotta peel the sticker off. I got my weekend cut out for me. for sure.


    The ABS light is on so that was depressing to see I dont know squat about the Teves II system so I gotta dig into that already. I read posts about deleting the ABS but seems like most suggest to not do it. So I gotta see how technical the problem is.

    Cool deal, get some better pictures in the day time so we can all see the side view of the car with those rims. I'd say hold off on washing the car for a while. Nothing stinks more than fresh, soft paint and swirl marks

    Thanks Jay for pressing the hubs. You have been an invaluable help for me. The loose one tightened up when I torqued down the nut.
    I broke a sway link and I had to try to take on off the parts car. Not fun when the threads are all corroded on the parts car. I did get it off after 20 minuted of back and forth turning.
    Rear swap is done but the front need to be done now. I also have to install the antenna motor and realign the door since its spacing is a little off.
    I need to get some fog lights too. They changed the design of them from 90 to 91 and they dont interchange I did not know this detail. Actually you start to notice lots of little changed Ford changed. Like the trunk carpeting does not have the plastic cover that hides the end where it meets the trunk seal near the latch. The JBL sub has a removable cover and the later ones are one piece. Sunroof switch is different ect. Lost of little changes.


    And KUDOS to black car owners you are the biggest slave to paint car in the world. Finger prints are EVIL.
