    Unhappy the spare parts didn't work...

    I have a spare power window motor and regulator but they were seized after sitting in storage for 8 years...The shop installed a new one for the driver's window. The other 3 power window motors and regulators are still working well. The battery and starter have also been replaced. I dropped my CV off a week ago for the bodywork. It should be done this week! Snow tires are in the trunk and they will be installed during inspection time. I hope there's no more repairs needed to pass...My wallet has taken a beating lately.

    I still hate power windows. Especially in vehicles with owners who like to have the windows down all the time. The CV eats driver side window motors like no other; and the armrest buttons are beginning to fail. My Mom has the tendency to forget to put the windows up at the end of the day. Killed my Ranger windows real quick because of that

    Thumbs up bodywork pics

    The passenger side rocker panel was replaced and the bottom of the fender was fixed. Set me back $700.

    Post 2019 up-date

    Recent service history: new battery, oil change and a wheel bearing for the driver's side front. The Winter tires still have plenty of tread. No bodywork was required to pass the inspection this year!

    Recent service history: oil-change, front sway-bar links, left front upper ball-joint, brakes hoses, front coil-springs, alignment, muffler and tailpipe. The y-pipe is looking crusty, so I'll have that replaced later this year.

    I would have to own a small garage just to service my own vehicles if I lived up there.

    Default Minor rust in the trunk.

    There was some surface rust along the seam. Sanded, primed, painted and cleared.

    Default service up-date

    Work order:
    -Check coolant level & top up.
    -Tested battery for draw and traced it to the auto-start module, which was then removed.
    -Replace valve stem on the driver's side front tire.
    -Install y-pipe.
    -Install rear coil-springs.
    -Checked body for rust. Will need right rear rocker panel replaced to pass mvi in November.

    I have the body repair appt set up for next week. Repair estimate was only $200. Same shop that fixed the rocker panel on my '90 Crown Victoria a few months ago.

    I got my car back last week. The right rear rocker panel was replaced and some other parts of the body were touched up. Cost was $200:

    Any paint and body work for $200 is a deal.

    Great deal. That is what I was paying for the driveway to be plowed for two storms. At least you have something to show for your money.
