    When I first got the car I was disappointed it didn't have a tan interior, as that was the setup I had on my 01 Town Car back in grad school. But over time the black has grown on me, and after...

    This is my 1987 Signature level Town Car, named Prudence by my wife. I bought it back in June of 2019 for $1200 from a guy who had bought it the previous year from his neighbor, who inherited it from...

    I swapped out the fuel gauge and message center display. The message center was dimming occasionally, so I guess it'll take a week or more before I can tell whether that's been fixed.

    It amazes me just how much larger those barges look compared to the boxes. I guess an extra foot in length and wheelbase goes a long way.

    Yeah, there's two fasteners as you say, but I had those off. The clips were just really well in there. I managed to get it off this evening after getting a little more aggressive. A flathead...

    Dew Wipe Trim Stuck

    I'm replacing the dew wipes and weatherstripping for the Town Car this weekend. Or at least the front doors anyway. The passenger side went fine, but the driver's door has me stuck. I can't seem to...

    How far down does the weather stripping need to go below the beltline? It looks like the original stuff runs the full length of the channel, but it'd be nice if I could save a little material where...

    I spoke too soon on the fuel gauge. It's still reading all over the place. Maybe it's correct sometimes, but it's hard to tell.

    Went to a junkyard today to look at a very intact 86 Town Car. This...

    You made the back corner 90*+ angle just by notching the back? And when you make cuts in the back, does it go all the way through the bottom of the 'U'?

    Yeah, I noticed the speedometer when I was looking at the video. Could've sworn I had my foot on the brakes. So that explains the Reverse to Park noise.

    One thing I don't understand though is how you would get at the torque converter to drain it. It looks like the case is one solid piece and the only way to drain anything...

    Well pulling and/or replacing the intake would suck. Right now a helicoil repair kit sounds like the most appealing option, and if I screw that up then I guess I'm replacing the intake anyway.
