Hey guys, i'm the new owner of wadespender's old Contour SVT. I picked it up last saturday as a replacement of my Mercury Mystique that got flooded up here in PA. Figured i'd post some pics and list some thing that i have done, and things that i am going to do with the car now that i have it.
Now, this car is my DD, and will be abused on a daily basis I cant get over the power the 3L Hybrid makes compared to my modded Zetec in my Mystique.
List of things to do now...
Alternator (done lastnight in 51 minutes. Timed by my wife ) DONE
Balance all 4 tires (shakes pretty bad at 65+mph) DONE
Replace rear calipers and steel brake lines (parking brake doesnt work and steel lines are looking pretty bad)
Fix the fitment of the plastic trim pieces around the head unit
Paint the calipers red. FRONT ARE DONE
Replace a/c compressor (brought to me today. Thanks Wade!)
HID's (from my Mystique. 4500K)
MSDS headers and Y-pipe
Lowering springs (not too much lower though)
HID fogs (3000K)
Rear subframe from my Mystique (Much less rust)
Get it on the dyno tuned
Enough taking/typing. Here are some pics. I'll have many more tomorrow.
The night i brought it home.
