    Ive replaced both racks and boxes (at work) and unfortunately you're right. I just hope I get more than a year out of this one.

            After replacing the body bushings I added "ditch" lights. Here are the results.Click image for larger version

                    Just now came across your thread and I gotta say, WOW! I really like it. Im jealous of the pinstripe, mine is basically gone. Great work with the body bushings and all the steering stuff as well. I love the speedo! Really cool car. I'm glad to see a CV version two door out on the road, and in great condition to boot!

                      I found an NOS FS6 compressor cheap and have it on the shelf as a spare for the Towncar and the Conti. Been down the reman path. The one on the Townie sounds like a dying air raid siren. The one it replaced lasted about a year before losing it's seals. The used original 1986 compressor I stuck on the Conti is perfectly quiet and works fantastic.

                        Ditch lights are awesome. One of my cues for a higher optioned vehicle.

                        That's just so sad, that searching for NOS parts is what we're reduced to. I *think* there was a time when remanned stuff wasn't complete shit.

                          approaching the point where I'm willing to do my own reman work. If its going to be a piece of shit, at least it won't be an expensive piece of shit.

                            LOL.

                            I think remans have dropped in quality but I'm not so sure old remans were that good either. I'm guilty of turning in the worst core that probably isn't going to be rebuildable. I bet I'm not the only one. The parts store folk don't seem to care any more.

                              I saw a post from a year or two ago you made about using Eastern Catalytic part number 30205 for the driverís side cat replacement. Did this work ok with the heat riser valve?
