    Some silicone spray on hand?

    Shoot some down the sides of the window. May be enough to help it out.


    Since you have to get in there eventually for the door lock clean up the tracks nice and good and spread some new schmoo on the regulator to get her going again.

    Shut off w/no warning on way to Church tonight, fired back up & did it again almost immediately and would not fire. We pushed it into a parking space. My wife & other son were lagging behind, gave us a ride.

    Went back later w/unknown TFI, started right up, let it idle for about 10 mins while we put tools & stuff away. Picked up my wife, returned to car and all seemed good,,,,,, till it shut off again 5 blocks from home. Restarted & made it to garage.

    Nothing looks funny though there was a slight "hot electronic smell".

    Will pursue tomorrow, um later today...

    try a distributor if you haven't. Bad pickups will give the same symptom. Also worth shaking the wiring at the coil. I've had wires break right at the connector inside the insulation before.

    I didn't have problems with the nuts coming off the Towncar, it just seemed like the straps shrunk as soon as they came off. If I'd had 1/2" more of thread it wouldn't have been an issue but I had a very hard time getting the strap shove up far enough to get the threads on the nut to catch.

    I had to make the studs extra long to get it in. I was not able to get the straps onto the studs. Like Thain said the straps almost seemed like they were too short.

    I've washed it 3 times now, actually looks pretty good for having sat for 9 yrs.
    I still want to clay, & wax it.
    Cleaned the front armrest switch plates, they look pretty good.

    I could not find the lamp harness for the lighted armrests today, attempted to cobble connectors & sockets. When I got home from the yard I realized I got the wrong connectors...

    Sprayed Eastwood internal frame coating inside the front doors as a preventative. The bottom edges of the doors have the barest beginnings of rust @ the seams, picked the seam sealer off drv side. I'm going to use rust encapsulator & re seam seal it.

    Their rust goop is good stuff but wear gloves. Its pretty difficult to get off your hands. I used the converter and the encapsulator inside the bumpers on the Conti. Shiny side on the ones I got are nice, inside was not so nice. Figured I should put something in there to hopefully keep them from rotting from the inside out.
