If that's the trick to getting the stupid thing to not leak, that is a great fix. Wondered if Gen 3 cowling would work on a Gen 4. Very creative btw, nice work!

Looks nice. Maybe paint the screws black, though?

Yeah I probably will. I only did the passenger side so far cause it was getting dark and I didn't wanna have to take the wiper off. I'll probably paint em all black when I put the other side in.

Well, here we go! It's been a while but I forgot to post about it. Several members have seen it already though, and bunches of pictures have been posted on Facebook...

Was able to find a red SHO at the yard and transplanted the parts onto Rex for a two tone effect! I like it! :D

Also took out the spear and put in the black mesh grille, detailed the wheels too:

Can you tell which ones clean? LOL

Replaced my map lights and trunk lights with LED festoons. They're GREAT! Best part, 95 cents each on eBay :)

School has started, and that means I have a lot of homework and tests, so naturally that means I'll be working on Rex more because I'm a huge procrastinator when it comes to school work.

Just spent around 50$ on some new mods that will arrive soon and be installed eventually LOL

Dropped Rex off at the dealer this morning, getting an oil change, tire rotation, chrome lug nuts (thanks Nick!) and the fuel filter replaced for the first time ever :/ Hopefully I can manage some better gas mileage now! Also been having a really high idle occasionally when in park and neutral (like 2000 rpms) so they're gonna check the idle control valve and at least clean it if not replace it.

A TSOC vinyl I ordered should be in the mail so I an get that on soon and take these darned magnets off!

I'm thinking about maybe putting a floating ford logo on the grille too? Any thoughts on that?

I had that issue a while back, Sean, only it was always when I started the car, happened suddenly. Cleaned the IAC and all has been well for over a year now. Hopefully that's all it is for ya.

Also, I'm diggin' the floating logo idea! B)

Brought two 2-drawer filing cabinets home today in the trunk! I know it sounds silly since it's just a family sedan, but I seriously love the utility of a Gen 3.

Added a ford badge to the front grille today. I offset it to the side like the 90's escorts had. It floats on the black mesh.

Its off of an Aero star I think, and is a noticeably lighter blue than the current ovals. I am in love with it so far! Let's hope the adhesive holds up. :)

Yep. 1986? Aerostar I believe it was. I remember us pulling it off.
