    anybody know if the tire iron fake leather bag was stock or an aftermarket extra. would be the last piece to finish the trunk. if it is not stock then the trunk is done.

    ran that cap that tested well. compared it to the new plastic ugly rs90 and it falls short. a new cap is a new cap and it functions much better. oh well.

    Lol. I bought like 10 motorcraft water inlet gaskets one time. The only one all the part stores around here sell is the one with adhesive on one side. I use gasgacinch and I really don't like the adhesive... I have a ssp oil cooler I'm going to save for a rainy day.

    At this point the car is getting ready for winter storage, not that it was out on the road or anything. It is up on jackstands and I am going to drain the oil in a few days.

    List to be done come warm weather: Undercoating, new skins on seats, paint and a new vert top. After that a good once over of the brakes and steering and she will be on the road. In a few years i can see pulling the engine and trans to clean and repaint them.
