What did you do to the X today?

I did the intake heater element delete today. Couldn't find a plug so I made one. The plug if you are wondering is metric, M22 1.5mm thread pitch. I used blue loctite only when installing the plug in the intake.

Pics for your pleasure.

I took my black lab to the vet today. I had my 7 year old sit in the 3rd row seat to keep the dog in the back. Coming home I looked in my rear view mirror and noticed the 7 year old asleep. A few minutes later I looked again and the lab was sitting in the 3rd row seat beside the sleeping girl. If the 12 year old had not been in the 2nd row seats the lab would have eventually been in the seat beside me.

Project for the day

I (with the help of a good friend) did the B mod springs today. Added all new poly bushings in the springs. Added about 1.5in to the rear.

That put the rake back in the Ex's stance; I had the V codes done by the dealership on Thursday. You should have heard them complain that their quote was too low by the time they finished the job.

I can still fit the beast in the garage!

I will probably get some signature pics new week.

I filled mine up too (the pump cut off at $100.00), while at the station the guy changed the sign from 2.89 to 2.93.

Today I am going to clean the interior, the kids have made a mess it.

Got my X back from the body shop just recently. A tornado hit us in June. Insurance company wanted to use used glass, but that's hard to find.

Found a new chrome front bumper to replace the rusting painted one, and the body shop put it on for me.

Anyone interested in buying a brand new Excursion front grill in mineral gray? Would like to change that to the 2005 cut off model, and moving that along would help me out.

Really missed driving my Excursion. Shop did a great job!

Yesterday I had a new air filter installed. They did the install for free since I was returning for them to re-fix a job they did a couple days ago. Then when I got home I changed out the transfer case fluid with some Royal Purple. I can't wait to change out the f & r differential fluids, tranny fluid and install the new Bilstein steering stabilizer I ordered. I love my truck.

I have a problem with the passenger door panel. My wife likes to put her foot on the door pocket and it is broken off. Came like this when we bought it and I have tried numerous ways to get it fixed. Wound up getting a small "L" bracket and some screws and just put a bracket on it. Looks kinda "rigged" but it works until I can afford some new door panels.

I did a brake job on my front brakes....Now this may not sound like much, but I only ever did my first oil change myself about 2 months ago....I am mechanically inclined but found it easier to take it to someone to do it....No assistance other than the Forums....so im pretty happy.

I started work on the only rust on my X, the bottom of the drivers side front door. I pealed back the skin where it folds over the shell of the door, cleaned all the loose rust out and POR-15ed everything, folded the lip back and por'ed again. After the por set up a little I took a syringe and injected por-15 into the clip holes for the lower rubber piece. So the whole bottom crack of the door should be submerged and sealed once dry with POR-15. The passenger side front door just had a little minor surface rust just starting at the seam, I also cleaned that door up and injected it as well with por. Tomorrow I will be able to paint it back white and eventually put the rubber back on.
