    The bird is back!

    I got my T-Bird back today, after like 2 months of it being in the shop for an ABS conversion. It brakes like a charm now, and I forgot how much I love this car. Im even thinking about taking it on a trip to Tampa for the 4th of July weekend. Apparently the idler pulley was fine, but the MAF sensor is bad. It was idling poorly, making it sound like the pulley was bad. So the mechanic just unplugged the MAF sensor, but it started stalling at stoplights, so I just plugged it back in until I can source a replacement. So yeah, I'm so excited to have this car back. And it only cost like $600, in total.

    It occurred to me that I've never posted any pics of the car on here yet, so I added some below.

    Uh, I don't actually, I had a mechanic do it since I'm just getting into fixing cars. I have a link to a huge article that would help in your case. The next time I speak to my mechanic I'll ask him for you .

    Here's a step by step that's available if you have an SCCOA paid membership: http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthre...on-Elimination

    Here's a huge 37 page forum post that's available to anyone, but it might take a bit of reading to gather all the part numbers:

    Thanks so much! I was wondering how I could fix that door! It doesn't sit exactly flush, as you could probably tell from the picture.
