The last time I saw a stock XR4ti was in the '90s.

Re: WTB or trade Rapido (work) wheel center cap

Why would I look into someone to do your cap? I misinterpreted your comment as "I will refer you to someone who I already know and trust who does a good job at replicating parts using 3d printing. Since it's someone I know, let me ask them if they can handle wheel center caps and I will get back to...

So if you could look into someone 3d printing one, that would be great!
Thanks!
Google would be more than willing to look into this for you.

Change your name tag to "Merk".

YMMV
Four "Merks" isn't enough?.
I can probably get some more.

Edit: There are actually five "Merks" if you count the watch.

Re: Wheel locks

Mine actually all work fine now that I have keys.
I'm just not a fan of those wheels.

Re: Wheel locks

Dejavu in 2020. I got a 88XR this weekend. The car was parked 5 years.So 2 front wheels locks dont budge. I found a third cap laying inside the car that works wonders with the key I have. Sprayed WD-40 as hell and praying !!!! My ultimate solution... a set of mint condition pie pan wheels. No locks...

Hi all,

We had a lot of fun in the SVT Focus group pointing out faux SVT when we saw them on the street. Some were creative; most were crap. Why didn't they just buy one? Same as for SVO, Si R, Si Mugen, etc...
I had a real Contour SVT.
Fun car.

Re: Did 1989 XR4TI solve the previous dash and head issues?

Those darn Motorcraft parts failing after only 30+ years or so. Don't really know how long it's been broken. I do know it was since sometime before 2015. I had never driven an auto XR before this one, so I didn't know what "normal" shifting behavior was. I know now that what it was doing was not no...

Re: Did 1989 XR4TI solve the previous dash and head issues?

Update... Jeff is sending his nicest cable today. I should be getting this sorted soon. And it is FIXED!! :headbang Thanks, Jeff! :cheers It acts pretty much the opposite as before. Instead of trying to stay in the higher gears (or hunting), it goes for 3rd ASAP. Gas mileage should be a lot better....
