    Yeah, I've just never seen an early stock cluster illuminate so nicely with that flood lighting. I'm a big proponent of backlit gauges for that reason. But even those get nasty when a car left in...

    The JBL 6x9's and dash speakers are notably different from the premium stuff. Door speakers seem to be identical except the JBL's got a "FORD-JBL" sticker on the back. But you will notice cleaner &...

    For my '88 TC, I just used the alternator wiring from a '93 or so Continental, complete with it's fusible links. It went from the stud on the starter solenoid up along the core support, down along...

    Oh yeah, you better believe you ought to record the position of the rotor before you pull the dizzy out. I made that mistake with Ashley's old '89 TC. I ended up stabbing the thing back in a tooth...

    I'd be tempted to go that route. I don't care much about car audio like I used to, so I think the factory deck amplified via aftermarket flubber with equally flabby aftermarket sub ought to suit the...

    Like gadget said, I tossed my premium stuff in favor of the JBL goodness which for '88 is plug & play. I also upgraded all the speakers to the JBL units, except for the dash ones as I could never...

    I'd definitely pull that engine for use down the road. No worries about that 350, it's not like I need the space for anything.

    Fuel pressure regulator too, check that. Ashley's was bad and sometimes she'd have to crank for a while too. Guy we sold it to replaced it and said it started it just fine after that. My '88...

    Watched the video of it on YouTube, really nice car. The interior is mint and underhood is extremely clean. Need to find one like that.

    Damn. Needed a pic of when you first bought it compared to it now. If you don't want the seats I'll put them in my garage as lounge chairs haha.

    I like sealed beams. I've got Sylvania Xtra Visions in each of the four slots on my Townie. They run through the ancient, stock wiring. They light up the road wonderfully when properly aimed like...

    The chains don't actually stretch, the pins holding the links together wear and that is what causes the slop. Nylon wearing down adds even more slop. Looks like she's had a few extended oil change...

    Yeah, why can't those guys EVER seem to fill the damn things correctly? It's not that hard if even I can manage it.. Sheesh.

    Nothing wrong with MoPar. It's not like a Ford product knows its a Ford any more than a Chrysler knows and or is proud of itself being a Chrysler. They were built by people like you and me, thats...

    I could be persuaded to let the thing go, doubt I'll ever need it. Not sure if it works though, the fuse was blown when I pulled it. Had some aftermarket junk radio hooked to it and aftermarket...

    Yeah that's a nice one. I'll refrain from sending this thread to Ashley as she'll be upset she didn't get it. In other news, the medical debt is non-existent now. Good thing she called, they tried...

    I paid ~$700 to have an entire axle swapped out, inspected (replaced two bearings and the axle seals), stripped & painted for my Fireturd at the Ring & Pinion shop over on Gratiot near me. I still...

    We've got one of their catalytic converters on Ashley's C1500, been about a year and so far so good. One will go on my truck when the time comes.

    Thas a noice truck. I love those two tone paint schemes. I'd be willing to dabble with diesels if it wasn't an extended cab, that wheelbase is almost as wide as a house haha.
