NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...just saw this now. Why, Greg? :(

Forced to sell to pay bills. :(

Long story, but the short version is the company I worked for ripped me off and kept my portions of job profits, that took me months to acquire. I don't get paid like normal folk do. I live off my savings until the next payday. Those can be months apart. I burned threw my savings waiting for the next, and when it didn't happen as it should have, it put me in a crisis. :thumbdwn:

Sorry to hear man, always have loved your truck. Still have pictures of it in my Explorer Forum screensaver slideshow.

Hope things turn around for you.

Spent the first day of my Birthday weekend under my Explorer trying to get the quick-connect loose to diagnose why my clutch won't open up and let me get into reverse.

Did a one-man clutch bleed on the 93' Sport. Drives like it came off the lot now! Put a post of what I did in the 1st Gen Stocker forum.

I decided to clean them, then give them an acid wash to get rid of the dirt/dust etc

Then I polished them

And then took them off again, because they rub on the bodywork.

'01 & '02 Sport Tracs,
Friday - replaced the panels under the steering wheel of my '01 Sport Trac, both the plastic panel and the metal panel behind it. Both were missing when I bought the truck 3 weeks ago. A previous owner had big speakers in the storage space behind the rear seats. Speakers are gone, but they didn't bolt the panels back in, so I got those screwed back in place.

Sat - I straightened out the droopy and damaged rear bumper. I loosened 1 bolt and could push the bumper back into place. Tightening all the bolts was a huge pain, despite having sprayed them with Liquid Wrench a couple of different times in anticipation of this job!

Next up - brakes and installing the trailer hitch.

Changed body mount bushings Saturday.

Did you have to dust off the to-do list that was on in order to cross it off? Haha. Mine stopped making noise several months ago so that's on the back burner for me.

Was it a little easier since having done the BL and knowing how to get at everything?
