Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

That is what I noticed with my XR lights. The edge of the road tends to go up. The lane in front of me dips down. Driving lights take care of the middle. I've always thought the gap of lighting directly beside the car at about a 45-degree angle was bad aiming. Maybe not after reading this.

Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

The fascination with brighter headlights is a reflection (see what I did there) on a couple of things. We're getting older as a population and need more light to see. Those stupid plastic headlights are yellowing as they age, keeping the light that was available when new from being available as the ...

An Agreed Value policy -- the same as Hagerty’s Guaranteed Value™ policy --guarantees that you will receive the full insured amount of the vehicle (with no depreciation, and including all sales taxes), in the event of a covered total loss. In contrast, a Stated Value policy (sometimes called “stated...

I haven't put these in my Scorpio yet, as it still isn't on the road, but the ones by the same company for the XR easily open that hatch.

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

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...

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...
