    sold it for 500 shipped including carrier bearings and the shims. Took more than a week before anyone even showed any real interest.

    The samco hose kit never sold even at 150 shipped.

    I was kinda disappointed honestly.

    Oh and where do all of these parts go with such a small work space...

    my basements unfinished spare bedroom hopefully the wife doesn't step in there anytime soon (I packed it full when it was 1:30am and she was sleeping ). It's kinda turning in to my spare parts/office area. Anyone want to buy a full sized L shaped office desk with a marble counter top?



    Oh and look what came in the mail a few days ago...

    needs some TLC, but I have some plans for it anyway.

    Very nice Mike! I've got to take off my front and rear bumpers for some painting and body work - any tips or instructions on how they come off?

    Very easy actually. It helps to have the Ford service manual CD. I can give you a copy if you want to swing by... just bring a blank CD.

    Front bumper:

    4 bolts, 2 on each side that go up through fender just behind the headlight. You will need to remove the inner wheel well liner to gain access to them.

    2 more bolts, 1 on each side that go through the bottom back corners of the bumper to keep it held out.

    2 push in tabs on the top of the bumper directly under the headlights and front grill

    Rear bumper:
    2 machine screws, 1 on each side behind the inner wheel well liner at the edge of the bumper in the arc.

    4 large nuts (13mm), 2 on each side just above the exhaust tip on the bumper support.

    I'd give you the sizes for the other bolts in the front bumper, but mine have been changed out and may be different. I believe the 4 bolts on the front bumper that go into the fender should be 10mm and the bottom 2 bolts are 8mm, but I'm not 100% positive on that.

    Thats it? The front bumper is held on with 2 bolts, 2 tabs and the little bars that go to the outside corners? Tee rear is super easy as well - I've got 2 spare fronts and a spare rear, I would have thought they would be held on by more. Thx man! I'll have to swing by some time - I tried getting that cd once but it was corrupter.

    More good news too! I heard back from Full-Race last night and they are willing to work with me on a set of traction bars. Score!

    This smiley seemed more appropriate heh...



    or maybe...

    2 spare fronts you say...

    Are they both in good condition? My driver side wheel well on my front is flexed and it bows out a little more then it should...
