    A mod and a fix today.

    First the mod. I went and added my EF license plate frames that were on both my Dodge and Red Flyer to Red Bull. These frames are kind of getting a lineage with all the vehicles they have been on.

    The fix. The passenger side window blew a bushing so I went by AZ and picked up a new set. I was a little stumped about how to get the motor out since I have never worked on a second gen or a front door before. I have done the rears before on the Flyer so I new how to fix the motor, but it still took me a while to find the dimple. Eventually after pulling the speaker I found it. After playing around with getting the motor back in and trying to figure out how the door panel went back on I finally got it all working. Now my window goes up and down perfectly. :D

    Good to see Red Bull stayed in Texas. I always did love this Explorer. Mainly, due to the really nice seats.
