Does the strut town brace actually clear the Windstar? AND the stock hood? I can't imagine that it does.
Technically no. If you look at the pic i notched the strut brace to go over the windstar. The gaps i made are now filled with jb weld to cover that point on the brace.
But yes i can close the hood without any issues at all. The hood has been trimmed to fit the windstar at the throttle body...but the hood closes now just fine. In the pic the brace is bolted into the stock location as well.

Did a full detail today, wash, clay, compound, wax. Pics tomorrow and maybe another coat of wax for added shiny.

Btw would anyone know why I'm unable to upload the exhaust video I made to YouTube? I hit upload and it just stays at pending...

how long did it take you to do a full detail? I'm at 20+ hours and not even half done... I believe SON1C took 40+ hours...

This was by no means a paint restoration or correction, just a real good wash and wax, I used the meguires paint restoration kit from advanced auto parts for 30$ plus tire shine for my brown tires. I started around 3:30 in the afternoon and finished around 8:30 at night, I didn't rush either. I missed about a 6 inch section on the front fascia that ill complete tomorrow. But yea, not long at all.
And I can definitely say this is the best my car has looked, the factory paint job still has some slight orange peel but I'm not experienced enough to tackle that yet. The reflection looks great, not professional, not mirror, but it does look great.

If it looks better than it did before you started, you're doing it right.

Got Damn you did a good job. I hope to obtain the same door results tomorrow, however, my car is frost silver. I wish I had a computer to upload pics from my real camera, my phone camera doesn't do it justice.

Put a shirt on! Trying to give the neighbors a show? lol

Does anyone know off hand the torque specs for the windstar bolts AND the lower intake bolts? Going to go rent a torque wrench in a bit here to see if I can finally get this thing running properly

I hope my truck turns out that well. I just got the Meguiar's clay kit and their carnuba wax to polish/clay/wax next weekend.

It is going to take forever though because that truck is f*cking HUGE.

Still counts here because it's a sixer. :shiftyeyes
