^^Done did the deed.

Spent the afternoon in two mechanics' shops. The dealership did the Focus e-brake cable and injector rail TSBs and had a look at my right front suspension (an occasional clunk which the tech thinks is caused by the sway bar contacting the pinch weld on big bumps). The suspension issue will have to await resolution until my regular service rep gets back from vacation, but the tech (an SVTF owner) complimented Grace's stance on the Ford Racing suspension.

At the independent shop where I take Emma, my '92 Escort wagon, I got a quick adjustment to the take-up height on the clutch pedal as a follow-up to a slave cylinder replacement a couple weeks ago. I also had Dave take a look at an oil leak that showed up earlier this week. His conclusion was that either the front crankshaft seal or the camshaft seal had popped. Since his shop did the timing belt/water pump/seals late in 2008 and I've put only about 6K miles on the car since, he said he'd cover the repair under warranty. So, Emma goes back in next Friday for a little remedial TLC.

I've been having a good run of warranty luck on servicing these two cars lately! "Free is a very good price!"

Anyways hopefully my new rotors will be in this week!! I plan on doing a full break re-dux (Rotors, pads, paint calps, flushed) the only thing missing is new brake lines but Im poor lol, also I wanna do the log lamp on conver and yellow em out.. Does anyone know if this is possible to do in a light blue. In the "How to" hey used stained glass paint.. would there be any issues with using a light coat of blue? (Kinda wanna match dukes color)

The SVT turned 50k today.



Tried to rotate but couldnt make it work. O well you get the point.
It is nice to have an 03 SVT with 50k miles.

I get to search for a new passenger rear control arm before seaside! went to finish up the suspension and the damn control arm/hub bolt decided to seize in the bushing. Won't tighten and won't losen. Focus is now un-drivable at work until I can get a new one :( so sad!
