With you Cletonius, trouble is the Mustang owning daughter is prone to wandering in so I have to listen for approaching footsteps. More progress made, however. Changed front strut inserts (totally F@#$%^d - just flopped about), serviced the front brakes and shampood trunk liner. I can almost be proud to own and happy to drive at this rate.
Good - Fast - Cheap: Pick any two.
