^^ gotcha, but it's really bad. And my steering wheel is cocked almost a quarter to the right so that says to me it needs an alignment.......if the vibration continues after the shop fixes it then I will get some spacers.

I saw you the day I picked up your rims on hwy 8 near mandarin, BUt I thought I saw steelies? Anyways, apparently the problem we've been having with our engines cutting out is the oxygen sensor. Do you know when you had yours replaced?

Thanks dbl trouble,
but a Ford contour? that's almost as bad as the Mercury Mistake!

Nope, bottlecaps!

I still have a feeling that my problem is with the fuel pump/filter, but I saw what people are saying about the o2 so that could be it too.

I also forgot my keys to my car up north so I won't be driving it for a week or so...

The car's in Milton right now getting the final estimates figured out ... I'll probably have it back while they wait for parts (2-3 weeks) since it's a small shop. I'll give you a shout when it's back

Well my touring is off the market as the car I was eyeing sold. Which I'm fine with as it was more money anyways.

Picked up a few things to get cracking. New alternator as my battery keeps getting drained after 4+ days of sitting. New to me uncut wire harness which i'm going to be swapping in.

Have also ordered all new bushings for the rear subframe from AKG, and will be pulling the complete interior, redoing the headliner and getting little things like the passenger window and heater sorted for next spring.

I've taken it off the road so the tear down can commence.

Dave, Post some more pics... needing motivation.

Haha, sorry man, I have to wax it first, it's terrible right now.
My headliner is stained too, but it's no biggie.

That's a big job! Good luck my friend.

I would invest in suspension, some good hard springs and you'll fall in love with it.

My headliner isn't saggin just stained. looks like a dalmation.

I've got blisteins on the car with unknown springs and but it sits really low. rides nice, just low.

I want to paint my rear subframe so when I had it on the lift I noticed the bushings were getting aged, so figured I'd do it all in one shot.

Archins,

Nice pic. I think I'm going to blackout my kidney's.
