A BIG THANKS to the MCA!

Post by MerkurScorpio » Mon Jun 06, 2011 1:21 pm

Thank you as always to the MCA, along with Carlisle Productions and all of the sponsors and Merkur vendors, who helped make Carlisle 2011 another fantastic year! Carrie and I had a great time, and Paul-Aaron's excitement all weekend spoke for itself! This is my verbal standing ovation for folks such as Brad Anesi, Saul Rivkin, Paul West, Andrew West, and Scott Williams for all the time and effort they put into this every year (my apologies if I'm accidentally leaving anyone out!!). Believe me, from having been a part of the Carlisle planning process in 2002, I can tell you this event doesn't just come together by itself. Countless hours, phone calls, meetings, negotiations, and hard work go into making every year special, and once again the MCA has done a stellar job.

I give a second to that standing ovation. Thanks again to all the guys who make it possible for us to meet every year and have a great time. Thanks to all the vendors too.
Thanks for the secret hidden goodies in the Tool kit(used it today) also! (But what's the two OEM Ford pieces from Merkur Depot?)
Thanks again,
Don

There were Scorpio bags and XR4Ti bags with NOS stuff - the XR parts are spacers for the bumper. Jeff has a nice description and pics of those on his site so I will direct everyone to a link there since I just gave away all 70 pcs. I had in stock :)

The NOS Scorpio part was a little easier to decipher as it was a gear selector interior plate, but here's a link to those as well if anyone is interested in seeing what those were:

Those OEM pieces are awesome! I'm going to experiment on my originals now that I have factory replacements! I've had some ideas for awhile now, but I don't experiment on stuff unless I have a good replacement waiting for me in case my vision ends up looking like crap. lol

How'd you end up with two? Or do you mean two of the spacers? That would be correct, as they're packaged in a pair to accommodate the two mounting points of the front bumper.
