I HATE FORDS.... PERIOD... and never do a favor for a friend no matter how stupid you think it is.. buddy of mine has a 95 thunderbird SC.. last week i replaced the upper control arms cause the balljoints are non servicable as well as the tie rods and the passenger side hub.. then yesterday he calls me up cause he is stuck inside his car.. door wouldnt open on the driverside.. so i went to his work and saw that the striker plate was busted off and needed to be welded back on.. no big deal right.. WRONG.. apperently its been like that for some time cause i had to tack it into place then put a peice of scrap plate behind it and weld that to it and then weld the outside to that.. needless to say what i thought was gonna be a 10 min job turned into a all day event.. the door was sagging really bad so i replaced the door pins and now something is still wrong with the latch so im replaceing that tomorrow..

I know... It's like having the only pick up truck in the family... Everybody wants you to help them out, "It's just a lil job, it will only be an hr or 2.

Ends up you doing most of the lifting and it takes most of Sunday to get it done. And for what?

I feel for yeah Joe.

its a yj but no the 6.0 motor and trans is for the mustang.. the heads, intake and TB are for the 6.0 firebird.. both are gonna have the same cam, crank, rods and pistons so once both are together we are gonna dyno them to see what makes more power.. carb or fuel injection.. they should be really close though.. both around 700-800 hp.. lol..

as far as the YJ goes im having a little trouble with the wiring.. tomorrow im headed up to the tech school my buddies dad works at and he is gonna do the harness for us.. he worked at chysler for centuries as a tech teacher so he knows them inside and out.. chysler still calls him when they have any major troubles but he is retired from there.. hopefully by the weekend it will be all together and then i can get paid and the owner can start doing the office in the shop.. cant wait to have A/C in there.. lol
