Re: 1987 XR4Ti 5 speed

Looks like a nice and well optioned original car. I wonder how it looks underneath the cladding and underside. Definitely could be a nice driver for someone.

Re: Headliner!!

Whether you or a shop does it, the new material is so worth it vs. limping the old. Been there and it will sag elsewhere again.

Just Dashes in California

Has anyone on the forum used these guys for an XR upper dash pad restoration? If so, opinions? It’s a pretty big chunk of change, but if an original look and we’ll executed, would be worth it to me.

Did anyone see the final sale price? I missed it and couldn’t pull it up after the auction ended. Hopefully going to a good home.

Anyone on the list going to bid on this one? Anyone used Auto Bid Master before? Likes or dislikes?

Re: 85 XR4Ti near Wichita KS (automatic) and one in Montana

I haven’t seen it in person, but spent a few hours talking with the current owner. He lives south of Wichita, but was in the neighborhood and stopped by. He’s a neat guy with a real passion for the Euro Fords. Currently he has a lot of cars and projects and would like to find a good home for the car...

Re: Need value help 1985 XR4TI

Gavin, First off, hopefully they are just uninformed, not delusional. Assume the tank will need to be flushed, and fuel lines purged. Coolant and oil flushed and changed. Transmission will need servicing, possibly pulled and resealed if an automatic. Did the car run before being parked? With the amo...

Re: Diff Cover Bolts

I am an A & P, IA, and director of maintenance for an aircraft maintenance and modification shop in Wichita, KS with 25 + years in military and civilian aircraft. There is nothing particularly exotic about what was used in any of these cars.

Re: Diff Cover Bolts

Aircraft hardware is rarely metric. Unless it is a truly serious corrosion issue, try a penetrating oil called AeroKroil made by Kano. Make sure it gets under the head, and you don’t need to drown it. Let it work, and before attempting to break the torque on the fastener, give them a couple taps. Th...

Rapido Open?

Tried calling Russ several times on several dates recently, any idea if Rapido is open or shut down? Looking for some obscure parts they might still have, Thanks.

Do you know where the car spent its first years? Looks like an awesome project, and all the big pieces there. Thanks.
