What's the reasoning for getting a new sensor? That o ring should fix the leak. On them sensors I've even put a little gray oem rtv silicone around the oring just to be sure they won't leak.

The front end looks great Greenscoobie!


Here is a lesson, don't store your vehicle over winter next to a bag of dog food. (not mine)

Sorry if I missed it, but what did you use for parts ? Used out of a salvage yard? New OEM Ford, or new aftermarket?

I'd like to do the same except with the Harley edition style headlights to match y black truck.
Check my build thread out if you get a chance. I scored the parts from clist. All parts used were Ford OEM(except the headlights.)

Yes they suck after the first couple then after that just flow on out. I had 93 of them so far and collected all of them in a jar. I know when I'm getting ready to pee one out.

I installed one of those in my Excursion over a year ago and so far I love it. Works really well and nice to have a single gauge and not a stack on the b-pillar.

Made a permanent home for my sub (its just been sitting in the back being in the way all the time)


I had a front jump seat/console in my truck was always flipped down as a console and that nobody was ever going to sit in to start for this project.



Then a bunch of dust and sparks later I got this mocked up



And meow. I just need to get some foam to fill in under the cover.

Really it could use a wash.... maybe it's the cloudy day hiding it.

I do appreciate the flowers though.

Metal Beaver strikes again! ANNNNNGGGNNNAAAGGGNNNNAAAGGG!!!




Looks great! I've got two 10" subs I'm trying to find something to do with them, or some way to mount one in Stan. I kinda want to put it in the hatch doors like I have seen, but I almost would rather have a mini bar

There was a little damage on the magnetic pickup but I don't know if it's enough to affect it. I'm also trying to track down the cause of my cruise control issues where it intermittently shuts off and then causes the transmission to buck/jerk. Cruise will not work until I restart the truck. I believe it's a speed sensor issue.

I drove the Ex today because it was supposed to rain a little bit, well it turned out to be beautiful and sunny. So i thought I can't be driving a dirty Ex on a nice day, so i ran it thru the carwash. Did a pretty good job, now i need to put my summer wheels/tires back on.

Very little and only on state maintained roads, at least where I travel from south side to mid town daily. You can see it when it's laid down in stripes on the road and it's not used much at all. Hence the snow packed roads.
