What did you do to your Mark VIII today?

Today I managed to get my autolamps working. Removed the top pad and started testing the ambient light sensor. Somehow it just started working. :cool:

Dude check out my gallery. I did the same thing to my wheels back in June. Well worth it when painted correctly. They look great, still stock but gives it a bit of an attitude. I've since pulled out my stocks for Cobra R's but they still look mean!

on your rims did you do the hub swap or did you find some where that sells replicas with the right offset

Today I bondo'd a couple dents. And bugged a bunch of autozone's for the rear sway bar end links that no-one in houston has in stock and now, after reading the back of one of the packages, think I ordered the wrong part ( I think I need the 3inch 8/12ths length and not the 4inch 1/4 length).

Bondoing a car this car is an art. Make no mistake.

They are replica's... Bought them used from a TCCoA.com member. They were their winter wheels so they have lot's of calcium deposit that has caused plenty of bubbles on the chrome but until I paint them black they will stay that way.

Oh & as for what I did to My Lincoln today? Unfortunately nothing, same as the last 2 months & the same as the next 3 months until I have the cash to send it to the tranny shop.
