Re: RockAuto Scorpio Closeouts Direct Link

Just saw a WIX filters TV ad watching the Indy 500 coverage. Can't recall ever seeing one before in my market area.

Re: A/C charging issue resolved.

TMK posters have no way to manage photo size. Appreciate info to the contrary. Photo files must be below a max size, but that's it.

Re: A/C charging issue resolved.

I might have lightly tapped the Trinary switch itself to see if that released it.

On a complete a/c reseal of my '89 I also installed new Schrader valves (what the heck, why not...).

Good to have you back in the Merk-fold.

Re: It's Adams FTW.

Almost two years ago I applied Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions ceramic polish on Shadow, my '89 Scorpio. I chose it among other ceramic products on the shelf (at Advance Auto IIRC) for, 1 good price, and 2 it's label said it made black paint stand out very well. Two years on it still wins my allegiance ...

Re: photo of a custom car

My error. Mustangs were the basis for some of the other Zimmers, but not for the Quicksilver.

I apologize.

Re: A possible 16x7 wheel for the Scorpio

Pretty price for those wheels...

Mustangs underneath .

One listing said Fiero but Zimmers don't look to be mid-engined.

Re: Hoses on either end of Fuel Filter

I wonder if there is a TSP on this.

Also speculate the nylon hose end received too much heat during installation on the banjo barn end.

Re: photo of a custom car

I recognized the general shape of the car and its inique front end. Lemmer helped me recall it:

Re: Aftermarket CAT rattle

Maybe a pebble found it's way between the shield and the cat body. Consider aiming compressed air between shield and cat on the chance that might force a pebble out.

Re: A possible 16x7 wheel for the Scorpio

Just musing...might the Scorpio center caps fit those?
