    Now that gets the adrenaline flowing, I know how hard putting mine down for a year felt, can't imagine how your excitement must be growing!...But then again, with the other Stallions in your "Hanger"...You can FLY with any of them!...LOL:D

    Not to prod you, but anything happening with your ride that you "care to share"? Like maybe you have had it home and been having TOO much FUN with it?

    I am sorry to possibly have hit a sad spot. Was really hoping that things were as I posted. BUT one must NOT rush perfection! Let them make sure they got it right for you! BTW did they do the driving light install from the donor car?

    Got it home today!! she is looking Good!!! They didn't clean it as well as I like so tomorrow I'm going to give it a good cleaning then Ill take pictures,just glad to have her home!!! She stalls at idle sometimes so I will have to figure what that is. I think what I will try first is cleaning the Throttle Body.

    Sounds like a very HAPPY reunion! Yup probably needs some cleaning in the motor department, and try some Seafoam in the fuel tank as well, Remember it has gotten little use for some time.
    In my threads I posted that the wife took control of GEM, once last week and twice today, she said while at posted speed the CEL came on and acted like it dropped to low gear.30mph max. Engine ran right as always. Each time I got it it ran fine and could not duplicate ANY concerns, my scanner is temp. unavailable to me as I lent it to a family member who is now out of town and won't be home till Sun. afternoon! I told the wife that GEM does NOT like her and wants ME to "hold the reign's" on it!..Did NOT go over well at all!

    Man oh man..She DOES look SWEET! I think the Magnum and the 300 are going to be seeing much less "action"!
    As someone on the forum suggested to me of one of my pic's...DITCH the FORD!..But mine was a lowly old Escort..LOL:)
    Now go get "reacquainted" with that coupe!..It is FWD remember not RWD like the rest of your "stable"!..LOL:D

    By the way ...What was your JEWEL's MFG. date? Mine was 10/97(technically a 98 model)
    I won't expect an immediate reply as you and the Mrs. are probably out on a nice cruise with it!..LOL:)

    The door sticker will give month and year, without going out(its night time now), I think drivers door BODY pillar. But yours seems a year older than mine, if as you state.:);)
