I don't know, those rims are pretty bad.
Well, yea. If they shot him because of the rims, that is understandable.

Re: Mechanic's Shirt

They're all going in my display case with my Capri, Safety Racing, Merkur Motorsport 1986 Mid Ohio pit pass, Hungarian military Merkur, and Reese AFB Crash Rescue patches.

Re: How many Scorpios are still on the road today?

Someone had a list of registered Merkurs from 2017. Cars with current registrations and plates -- "on the road" and there were about 100 1988 models and 100 1989 models. I'm sure the list of parked/expired registration/projects/out in a field in W.VA would at least double that number. Nate Howard p...

Re: Alternate sun visors

Has anyone ever looked at using a set of sun visors from an alternate, more modern vehicle? Two reasons come to mind... 1) Replace an aging, dried-up/cracked visor with a more modern part. 2) Install a visor with a Homelink transmitter installed. Anyone looked at this or do I need to be first? I wa...

Re: Odd paint color

Fairly new to the merkur scene but I’m wondering about this paint option I’ve seen. It’s a “triple black” merkur with double gold pin stripes. I can’t find this anywhere on the forum or online and I’ve seen not only one but two cars with this paint job. Was this an actual thing? Both were late mode...

Re: Hagerty: 7 classics under $10K that you should snatch up

I don't know if any XR exists that gets exclusively hauled around. "Minty" original and restored cars will probably have to do. $5900 won't buy one of those either. Exactly, it could be $20,000, because there is probably no such thing. Maybe the Henry Ford Museum has one in the basement, but its ti...

These practically shoot the hatch open. I can't imagine your speakers would make them drop. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L2G4O08/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Thank you, sir!

Re: Proper Brake feel (and wheel questions)

I would suspect a worn throwout bearing, possibly the T9 input shaft bearing. T5 swap was already done.. it sounds mechanically linked to pedal... It's like how a door creaks when you open and close it.. same noise in both directions. But IDK what it truly is. If a T5 swap has been done i would che...

Re: New to Merkurs - Where is this oil coming from?

Ah is that why everyone switches to the later valve cover? Everyone doesn't, but it is an improved design. In addition to the improved breather, you get a screw-on oil cap as well. Many prefer the looks of the earlier style. I do like the looks of the earlier one, which was fine when it was new and...

Re: Rit dye for carpet

My original package tray has been modified for 6x9 speakers. :puke Rockettes first XR had the same problem, the added weight of the speakers would overcome the gas struts that held the hatch open. I changed the struts, but the hatch hitting you in the head problem wasn't solved... :roll: These prac...

Re: New to Merkurs - Where is this oil coming from?

Also, sprayed the crud out of the oil separator with carb cleaner until everything came out clear and tasted great. As this is an 85 car, is there anything that should go into the valve cover where the oil separator goes? It feels like it's metal on metal. https://payload.cargocollective.com/1/8/27...
