Re: Speaker wire colors.

After you do it a few times, an XR dash isn't a big deal either. Not like my Capri where there were only a few wires to reconnect, but not too bad.

YES, THATS WHAT THE LISTING IS FOR A COUPLE OF POSTS UP.
I don't think the FOB has an LED light above. I think it is just OEM, which is pretty rare as it is.

And if I would have read further, I would have seen that was already answered....

Re: Interior Work

I got the tool from Dynamat. Pretty sturdy. I also re-used the mat that came with the car, but probably would look for something different if I ever pull the carpet again.

Re: Interior Work

Didn't take any pics of mine as I put it in, but it was super easy. Just put it down and roll the installation tool over it a few times. I peeled the backing off a little at a time in case I wanted to cut the piece and move what was left. The areas I had issues with was past the wiring behind the da...

Re: Junkyard find

My guess is the auto transmission went bad and the cost to fix it wasn't worth it.

Re: Fuel pump neutral safety switch?

That's bypassing both the relay and the inertia safety switch. If it were me, I'd fix the problem instead of going around it. The ISS has been known to be an issue for some. Normally it just needs reset and people don't know to look for it.

Re: Anyone DD theirs?

Russ from Rapido has different options available if you want to support the Merkur vendors. I know he has them done in OEM style and some non-OEM. I've even seen some custom Scorpio covers that looked really nice. Probably not Connolly leather like ours was, but thirty-year-old leather that hasn't b...

About 15 years ago Ohio echeck place put XR front wheels on the rollers instead of the rear wheels. :shock:
No e-check in Stark county, but I'm not surprised.
