Re: Wheel locks on my 89 xr4ti

Merkur Midwest, Merkur Depot, or Rapido may have a key for sale, as well as any other parts you may need. The locks are very valuable. Don't drill them out!!! I haven't bought from Rapido since the '80's. But Jeff (Merkur Midwest, blugg here) or Mike (Merkur Depot, merkurdriver here) will surely ha...

Re: New Radio for xr4ti

I had a '90 Montero and I wanted to fit Infinity Kappas in the door.
Problem was that the magnets on the Kappas were MUCH bigger than the stock speakers.

I got a set of 1/2" thick spacers machined out of ABS to provide the necessary clearance. Did the trick... they sounded great!

Re: Car Show Season

I thought we were cruising somewhere today, but it turned out to be a cruise-in, which is fine with me.
Gonna put this one on my regular schedule...

Re: Car Show Season

It was humor🤣🤜🤛. YMMV Yeah, I know. I'm just saying that this isn't the worst place to put your pics if you want to be seen. I think it's been less than 2 weeks since I did the links and I got about 800 views. That's a LOT higher rate than I had before I did the links. It seems to be working. Next ...

I am sure the complete Ford kit would be nice but an intercooler would be more likely than that complete set in my present budget. I must say I had no idea it was as much as that.
It's expensive because it's an unmolested NOS factory unit. Everything gonna be there.

Re: Car Show Season

Ima thinkin this post is better titled Car Show Eaton.🤔😉 Anyone can post their stuff here. Here's why that's not such a bad idea. I've put links to this thread onto some MUCH larger boards. They didn't get deleted and I didn't get my butt kicked off or reprimanded, so I guess they don't mind. I've ...

Re: If I want cruise control...

I had one of those aftermarket cruises on my '85. It sat on top of the steering column. Worked by reading voltage. It was really easy to install too. The downside of reading voltage is that any RPM change screwed it up. If you changed gears you had to reset it. But as long as you stayed in 5th, it w...

I saw one or two very very nice examples sold by Mike at Merkur Depot. Not sure if any were 89 and 5 speed or who has them now.
There are some mint original ones, but not that many.
When you begin to narrow the focus this much, not that many becomes very, very few.

There may be a couple of cars in the world that fit this description.
Even mine only fits three out of four.

Re: Car Show Season

You've done a "few" car shows with your XR. Rough estimate or best guess: how many years & car shows & average number of people ask you what mfg or mistakenly ID the mfg? Kind of lame when they can't read "XR4Ti", or how many can't figure out "Ti"? Thanks for showing the Merkur marque and posting y...
