New battery!!!!

By donjuan

Filed under: 1993 Ford Thunderbird (Bird Of War)

So it now has a fresh new battery instead of the old way too small battery that was in it. Now I just need to score a battery tie down from a local boneyard and it'll be factory fresh ... well kind of,lol.

So I hit the train tracks....HARD

But luckily it actually turned out to be a good thing unlike with my G20. It had a bad rattling sound after I hit so I figured exhaust, I went hoe and next day woke up extra early to go to local muffler shop. They noticed a few small leaks and lots of band aid welds on old exhaust. I got new piping installed and two sexy stainless steel tips poking out the back for a total of $265 I aint mad.

Synthetic oil change

So took car into my job Saturday morning and was lucky enough to do an oil change on it after I clocked out. I had a mechanic friend put car on lift and help me locate a socket to fit drain plugs, yes plural,lol. I then removed oil filter which was cheapie Fram Orange one Yuck. Oil was extremly black and most likely way overdue, but now its full Pennzoil Platinum Synthetic 5W 30 in it with Motorcraft Filter, so Im happy and car does run a good bit better now.

1993 Ford Thunderbird project AKA " Bird Of War"

So I traded my Grand Caravan on this on Tuesday, it had 18X9 inch Chrome Cobra R wheels, large billet spacers on it with BALD rear tires. I then on first night of owning it found a factory wheel set about an hour drive away, scooped them up for $100. Then went the next day found four new Goodyear Integrity tires for $293 out the door ummounted. I work for new car dealer so I had the hook up on mounting and balancing, $30 for that. So now car rides wayyyyy better and has way less unsprung weight. I also have removed a dumbass Monster energy drink sticker in back window, gave car good vaccuming, cleaned windows in and out outside with rain X window cleaner. So today we bought oil filter wrench cap style, Motorcraft filter, two new drain plugs, Pennzoil Platinum synthetic 5W 30. Dealer sold use clips to keep headlight secure along with interior screws that are needed and oil filter for like $7. Today car got fresh rain X wipers and we had our mechanic friend replace a tired out serpentine belt also. Lots more coming for sure we appreciate help/advice so comment please its a lot of typing for no body to read this lol.
