    Nothing like a fresh bath

    She had a fresh bath last night, hoping to swing a fresh wax this afternoon...

    I do intend to invent an automated bird thrasher, for the bird that thought my clean car needed 2 spots of bird crap!

    Looking good!

    Apparently Ford had an option that didn't quite make the cut into production, but I am sure you can come up with something similar...

    Eric,

    How hard was it to get the 87-93 side mirrors to work on the SVO?

    Did you use the stock SVO dew wipes or the 87-93 dew wipes.

    Stock 93s ..
    stock SVO dew-wipes.
    not especially happy with them... but the plan is to cut the ridge off at the mirror side, and taper it out to the front of the mirror.

    obviously that's not done yet

    I wonder if you could just use the later dew wipes? They are cheaper when they need to be replace.

    Is this your silver car painted black?

    nope, this is an 85.5

    I don't like the 87-93 dew wipes, think they look funky

    Aren't the 87-93 dew wipes part of an entire side mirror/door trim assembly? It has been quite a while, but I thought the 87-93 mirrors were attached to a trim piece that mounts to the horizontal ledge on the door and run all the way back to the rear edge of the door?? When I had my car repainted Ford had already discontinued the 79-86 doors and I had to get the 87-93 units, which had (7) holes in that top surface for mounting that mirror/trim assembly. The body shop welded up all of them for me, since I had them transfer all the original 86 parts over to them.

    She is pretty when she's clean, which isn't nearly often enough.

    gotta get some brake work done, which i'll be posting about in a min...

    Oh don't we know!! Nothing looks better than a clean black car, but nothing looks worse than a dirty black car is what I always say.
