Re: Re-upholstering the center console lid...

Upper dash R&R is ~ 30 minutes. BTDT a few times. Lower is much more work.

Re: Re-upholstering the center console lid...

My '88 is also Chestnut Brown, Spice Brown leather goes well with it. The Spice Brown leather is for Brits what Raven leather is for Yanks (greener grass....) Yeah, glare off the dash at certain times of day and year is occasionally bothersome, a black guest towel on it calms it down. When I feel a ...

Re: 11" Brake Rotor

Tim: time to delete this "1988 XR4Ti Duratec project car". Tim wrote: I'd argue it's the increase in speed and size of the cars.

Re: $400 Key Fob???!!!
