Had to go into pit bull mode/mentality, lol! To be honest, the 3 cars were Impalas, no atf pan/filter to r&r, just an 11mm drain plug. Drain 6 qts. add 6 qts. Also, no serviceable fuel filter.

Drain and fill on ATF sure is quicker than the older drop the pan and make a mess method. My 2010 is five quarts, real easy drain bolt access.

Know how that is. I am trying to keep 3 on the road. And do not have a garage to work in or house to park I front of. The apartment complex has strict rules about any car work. I rent a garage but it so small I can barely open the door to get out of the car. It is going to warm up and I can use my daughter's carport.

A day or 2 ago...

Today after some elbow grease and a neighbor who taped them off and sprayed clear coat via the compressor...


Iím looking forward to cleaning it (too tired tonight) but really want to see the difference of light output.

I've swapped every speaker in the car with donors from various Lincoln premium systems.
The last one was the subwoofer box from an Aviator. They have a dual voice coil 8" woofer with a little amp that pushes 80w at it. I mounted the box/amp combo right below the rear deck, emulating where I saw they installed the same thing in the Towncar. Fits very nicely there, keeps it out of the way and hidden, doesn't block the trunk.

I'm planning a proper write up on the whole procedure, plus information on the OEM speakers and amps I've been working on in the audio forum at some point.

So this happened today:


Mounted 225/45-17s on 17x8 wheels. Still need to buy some center caps. Drove it a few blocks to get the alignment done and they tell me it needs inner tie rods. So, it will sit until Friday when those show up, then get installed and a four wheel alignment done. Hopefully thatís it for a while.

If you can, maybe update here when you post the write up. Looking forward to it.
