I also need my windows tinted..but I do NOT have the patience for it. Most likely I'm going to take mine in to get done.

I am a mechanic for a living, and have done alot of suspension installs on Focuses. I have a few tricks up my sleeve that makes things alot easier. let me know when and where, and I can help you.

Talk to Chris (Klondike), he does really nice work with Nightshade.

Wellll...if people want to, we could set up a mini meet here in Watertown? We could knock out some of this stuff that I need to do on mah Focus, and anything anyone else needs done with theirs, then we could go out for a cruise. (I'm willing to do all the work, just need someone there to tell me what the hell I'm doing lol.) And my brother knows of some good driving roads in the area.

I know Watertown is quite a drive for everyone..but if we could set something up, that would be awesome. I'd like to do all of this the same day. I'll supply the heated garage, the tools, and the beer. Lol.

I also think I'm going to put a new timing belt on here soon..I've been getting a lot of squealing right after starting my car lately. But for that, I just may say screw it and take it to the Ford dealer to get done. I have no idea how to do the timing. Or how to get in and get at the belt. Lol.

Best bet for the t-belt is to talk to Scott. That's one of those that I know he knows what he's doing on it.

And I know..Military/Police stuff. So. Yeah!

But I agree, we've got almost all areas of the game covered. Which is good for me. Because I know very little about all aspects of this car guy stuff. The only one I'm good at, is the whole acting gay with each other thing. Lol. I've got that down pat.

Squeeling on startup is probably the serpentine belt tensioner.

I can do the Zetec timing belts in my sleep.
