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...

If all you need is the center cap, I'd see about having someone 3D print one for you.

One "Early" and one "Late" style hatch. Free. Pickup in Columbus Ohio. ASAP

I have been saving these for a really long time because I've had the space. Just sold that house so...no more storage for large pieces. The early one is rusted out but the glass is fine. As far as I know the late one is in pretty good shape, again , with good glass. They are free but you'll have to ...

Re: I apparently listed a faux SVO for sale...

There are quite a few parts that make an SVO Mustang different from a run of the mill one.

Re: Sometimes I ask myself...

I have always thought they were ahead of their time for style and aerodynamics as a feature of the core design and now they look more or less normal Grilles Gone Wild these days, so they're still not really normal. When EVs become commonplace, then a Merkur will look more like a regular car. And yo...

....cutting the front doghouse and putting a P.O.S. Chevy motor in it and make it a field car. Basically put it to the floor and drive stupid till it blows, rolls or catches fire.
Every single Merkur/LS swap ever.

"The Merkur is a terrible Daily Driver."

I've found the opposite to be true. It's a great car that simply requires regular maintenance to be/stay completely reliable.

Re: Working on my oldest car

We had a 1/2" thick sheet of ice this morning just 100 miles South in Columbus. I'd trade it for a couple inches of snow.

GT40p heads. Which requires a different header. And then, when you buy heads, you'll need yet another header, as most "P" head headers don't play well with most aftermarket heads.

We're lucky they didn't part it out to try to make their money back. Lol.

Re: 2.3t for 5.0w swap. Anyone interested?

Yeah. I'm not relying solely on this type of trade to procure the parts. Just floating it out there to see what I can find. I do know that I can find the parts on MarketPlace/CL and even the JY. But, if someone wants to do a trade, it's what I'd prefer. The only people who do 2.3t swaps aren't just ...

I’ve built a 5.0 powered XR in the past. That’s not what this post is about. I’m looking for someone who may have a good engine and trans.

2.3t for 5.0w swap. Anyone interested?

It seems I can't let go of doing another 5.0/XR swap. I have a ~75k mile 87 XR with some "ok" engine mods. (Bolt-ons...IC, PE computer, 3" mandrel bent Stinger exhaust...) Also have the T9 and short throw shifter. I'd like to find a 5.0/T5 from a Foxbody that's in similar condition. With harness/com...
