    Operation Trilogy Resurrection

    I made it to see the car last night at the dealership. The car is safe, I'm relieved. It's going to take a couple days to get the deal done since I didn't have 11k sitting around after just buying a second marauder this summer, but he bank said the check is in mail. The owners of the dealership are nice enough to let me start working on the car to make sure I could drive it home early next week.

    So far here is whats been done:

    The dealership put a new Motorcraft battery in it to get it on their trailer.

    The first thing I did was buy an alternator, but after closer inspection, I might not need it. RoyLPita told me to check the alternator extension splices and sure enough the wire broke clean off in my hand.

    I also checked the passenger side rear window, and it's in the door, so I don't need to get a window, I'll just have to check wiring and possibly change the regulator.


    That's it for now, I'm getting what I need together to go fix the wire to get the car home.

    Let me know if you need a regulator and or motor. I have the parts.

    Call 1-800-FORD-788 and press "1". Have the last 6 of your VIN handy. You will get the numbers for FREE. You'll pay $$$ for the certificate.

    MM traded in 8/9/13 @ 128909 miles. It was fun for almost 8 years. I met airmercpun on 1/17/14. He was the new owner of my former ride. -Now gone.

    Update: back in the game with a late build 03 GMGS with some MM add ons like Escape audiophile radio w/Sirius sat radio, rear sway bar, catback exhaust, and header panel.

    Rest In Peace:

    See my garage file for part numbers and whatnot.

    IMHO, this site- the members that I chat with- and the ones that I now Hang with- are like my 2nd family. There is such an ongoing welcome feeling here that even members who don't or no longer own the MM can feel.
