    Finished cleaning up after replacing the rusted out drivers floor pan. Covid was harsh on the old girl - she got more rusty in the last 18 months parked underground than it did for the first 16 years of its life.


    What was under the carpet:


    After cutting away the rusty floor:


    New floor pan, hammered out of 16 gauge over 2 afternoons, before paint:



    Another day after this of bashing until it fit better.


    Used 3M panel bond, rivets and screws to hold it in place permanently. Sorry, I got too busy and too tired to take more photos.

    Swapped my D1SC for a D1X. Surprisingly it did everything that Procharger claimed it would do. Thru efficiencies created with the new impeller/volute design, it lowered IAT's and makes more top end power with less boost. It's a little softer on the bottom end but I wanted that anyway as the car is on the cusp of being streetable, for me anyway.
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    F250 day today. To prevent traveling breakdown due to OEM Charge Air Tube blowout, upgraded to H&S Motorsports 122011 ( https://hs-motorsports.com/collectio...=7149513408569 ). Beautiful part, billet aluminum with a very nice super tough silicone hose.

    Then did ATF fluid & filter change and installed BD Diesel's 6R140 pressure enhancer solenoid ( https://www.thoroughbreddiesel.com/1030385/ ) to bump line pressure up to reduce wear & improve high load trans operation.

    Great day today until the sky opened up and released Noah's flood! Had to end all the work I was doing...

    Last week I pulled the Silver out of a three year slumber. Faithful beast started right up. New fresh full tank of California expensive premium, full hand wash and wax, tire pressure check, warm up, and easy roll around town. Freeway for thirty minutes, then off to California smog check.

    No CA SMOG problems or issues as noted in previous other threads.

    Smog place was fairly busy, and as always, I warned the smog tech to be very careful as the silver has no blemishes, so I walked him around the car before he got into it. I also warned him the tech that the Silver is a little "jumpy" from its' long slumber.

    He drove it around into the back bay and the entire waiting roomed noted when they extended rev'ed it, and all looked over at me. I just smiled. When they opened the hood, the tech called over every other tech and they walked a conga line around the Silver.

    When they finished and pulled it out front, the guys all followed the car outside into the sun, still surrounding it. Again, the waiting room folks all looked over at me.

    The office manager came in and said, The guys all love your car!

    Next week, I am bringing the black out of a six year slumber. Have to tow it to mechanic to change out the fuel pump, and drain all the gas. After, I will wash, wax, and repeat all above.

    I am now ready to rejoin the Marauder community!

    I am sorry it has been so long.

    Should’ve asked them how much more they’d like it if only you could build it thanks to that comi state!

    Wasn't quite today, and it wasn't really anything like servicing or whatnot, but this weekend I did manage to consume a full quarter tank driving about 25 miles. High speed highway cruising with OD turned off can really make the engine thirsty.

    Went to the 2021 Wheels and Wings at the Air Armament Museum near Eglin Air Force Base… sponsored by the Emerald Coast Regional Mustang Club. Took second in the Ford/Lincoln/Mercury category covering the ‘04 year group!

    Is RF Overlord still around? They had me parked right next to an SR-71 in the air park.

    Pontiac window day...

    Out with the old


    In with the new!


    Broken window clip removed. Very stressful when doing, waiting for safety glass to shatter when using a power tool on it!

    Yep, just as I thought because of the way the window was moving... Passenger clip is broken too. I bought 4 when ordering drivers side parts so have extras. Plenty of adhesive left over so just need to order a regulator. Deja vue all over again!

    After fixing the blown spark plug, The driver's window regulator broke for the third time. After that 2 days later the A/C compressor died.
    Replaced that and the condenser with the Four Seasons kit, and then had to replace the manifold hose with it.
