Junk yard finds...
« on: August 18, 2013, 08:29:20 PM »
I had an outpatient Friday but went to the junk yard anyways.  After making it to the Ford area I was feeling a tad lagged.  So I grabbed easy things.  Could not find a black interior car, closest was red.  In the car I grabbed the headliner clips and a mint condition 89 electronic day/ night auto dim rearview mirror and wiring harness that should clip on my windshield nicely.  Cleaned it up nicely.  The far to near dial was peeling so I used a little contact cement to make it stick.  Now all I need to find is a "hopefully black" moon-roof switch combination map light assembly.  A little re-wiring should solve any electrical issues.  Then I will have auto dimming high beams, auto on headlights in the dark and auto dimming rearview mirror and still have map lights.

Then I found a 97 plastic trunk trim piece that will hold down the carpet nicely.  Snatched some hard to find hardware...  Started to feel a tad weak so I left much earlier than usual.  Not bad for $15.95.
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.
