    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!

    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.
