    Swedie, she is beautiful, she doesn't look like a piece of crap or an ugly ducking!! I've got a few silver trim pieces for that front corner light - yours free just get s&h. Of course the plastic piece that adheres it is broke - but I've been able to make it work on my other two marks, I'm sure you could easily find a way to adhere it also.

    Frankincougie - Mold n Hold - do tell me more please!! Did you happen to take pics when you fixed the rear lasagna issue? I'm going to google now to see what I can find on it, looking forward to hearing your experience with it and wondering if you could post some close up pics of the fixed parts!!!

    In advance - thanks!

    I took a different tact. After looking at everything I could find on this, I didn't want to add another molding clipping over the OEM and more importantly, I will need to get my car painted. The OEM gasket proves a problem there since you cant capture the entire panel surface with the gasket in place. So, I just used a tight razor knife and cut the lasagna off. I'v yet to do the top where there is only a couple lifts. I will eventually bend a piece of aluminum flashing into the groove and hand sand the razored edge to a rounded one. The widest part of the gap is about 1/8th and most is not even that. You can see where the original paint was under the cut away portion as this car was once painted up to the flap of gasket. Painting "should be" panel edge to edge. The gasket flap has to go......

          Thank you!
          I'm sure I have that trim piece, somewhere. But I'll get in touch with you if I don't find it! It fell off somewhat like 7 years ago...


          This was about a month ago but I straight piped it (still have cats for emissions).

          Also I did buy these for my BMW and was thinking of putting them on the Lincoln for a "Swedish" look on the Lincoln.
          But I decided to send them back. A shame, would've been cool tho.

          Washed the hell out of it, after having 7 1/2 inches of rain so far this month.... More coming on Tuesday but at least it'll be clean for a couple of days.

          Finally got around to fixing the old "recall" fire hazard cruise control sensor plug. I put it in the HOW TO ARTICLES. That should save anyone new to the VIII like me a bunch of time trying to figure this all out.

          Today I will finally get the CPS changed. The intermittent start situation will hopefully be rectified. Looking to get her OTR my usual April 1.

          I attempted to look into the rear neon ballast. I found that the wires (white) looked like they were burned at one point and were no longer connected to the neon light wiring. I spliced them, but to no avail. I'm not sure if the ballast, which did not look to be original, is bad or the neon itself.
