    I keep wanting to go to this one.

    Can we fly in? Where is the nearest airport that will let us plug a block heater in? :D

    I have operated in the "Is it broken?" realm of thought for the past 15+ years.

    I have done little or no testing of almost anything for various reasons, and think that many, if not most, club...

    I can't remember if the ST struts are shorter, or if the knuckles are offset like the rear beam, or both.

    Did both sides lock, or just the PAX side? I think it's the shorter of the two isn't it?...

    can't imagine it's worth the hassle over a 1.6L NA - think of all the error states associated with the turbo and running boost that the NA won't have at all.

    Where are you generally located?

    I am building an ST, and although I have my doubts I will make SD this year, I sure wouldn't mind some local to SE Michigan help if someone were so inclined.

    I have the M-sport Bilstein damper/spring kit on my as yet unfinished build. Like college, I seem to be dragging it out a bit more than ideal :D

    Uh oh, that doesn't sound good. I was waffling on adding a plate to the top of the strut sheet metal, but didn't.

    Yeah, you want to get the control arms plated.

    I like AWESOMEDRONES.com and REALLYAWESOMEDRONES.com

    There are some lesser sites - like LESSERDRONES.com that I think could do a better job, but MAKEDRONESGREATAGAIN.com is on top of that.

    I'm going to guess it's the hood ajar switch - you should have a very difficult to see plug integrated into the hood latch.

    If you threw that out already, it'd explain why you didn't find it.

    I don't think the top of the Fiesta dash is soft enough to do it - I looked at mine when I got home. Or maybe it is if you can heat the top layer and roll it once it's warmed up.
