Well, I did the deal yesterday on the '04 LX's replacement.



2010 P7B
Former Wixom (MI) PD unit
103k
Mods so far: Addco front sway bar, Focus foglights, NTF auxiliary oil filter (installed by the PD), side-mount trunk organizers (first time I've ever seen these and I really like them), LED trunk illumination, LED reverse lights, Forscan-activated keyfob, Forscan-activated light flash upon door closure, Explorer center console, Kenwood BT stereo with subwoofer in the trunk.

Best of all: no major rust - and the undercarriage is shockingly clean. I'll get pics of that sometime soon.



My first chore was to remove the "See You Space Cowboy" decal on the rear fascia.


Aside from that, I've gassed it, spiffed the interior up a bit, and put some Rain-X on it. Also ordered a 2" hitch receiver for it so I can mount my bike rack. Doubt I'll do any trailering with this, since the '91 LTD has the 2" receiver, wiring for lights, and a trailer brake controller already installed.

More to come. I haven't really had a chance to do much to the car.

I'd looked at, and passed on several. I had no desire to deal with rust. The 2010, while not perfect, is clean.

The trunk storage boxes, usually called evidence boxes, were a factory option for all ears, though they aren't very common.
Although it appears that he has two passenger side boxes... The driver side box from factory is smaller, to clear the inertia switch.

Those polycarbonate boxes are nice - you can store tools in there and see all what is in there since they are clear.

I've never seen them on CVN and I too cannot find any in any online marketplace. I'm super stoked to have them.

I need to do some illumination work on the car. The left side reverse light is out, which is no big deal. But slightly more annoying: the Focus fogs were flickering on me on the way to work last night. I smacked the switch and they came back on without issue. Guessing it's just the switch, then, but that needs to be addressed now-ish.

Today, I started taking the wiper motor and cowl out of the '04 LX, planning to swap it into the '10 P7B (this was briefly discussed here before I bought the car).

Predictably, much like the rest of the LX, I found the wiper motor to be in crappy and corroded shape. I didn't feel very good about proceeding with swapping it into the 2010, which is not crappy nor corroded.

So, now I've got two Vics without functioning wipers, because I sure as [censored] wasn't about to go to the trouble of re-installing the wiper motor on the '04 today. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow.

In the meantime, I've ordered a new motor. Then again, it might just be the transmission/linkage since I can hear some sort of attempt at movement from the cowl area when I turn the wipers on. Who knows.

Mine has an indent and therefore clears the inertia switch, and the lid for the driver's side box has a decal advising of the switch's function...

That's the plan. Though, it's honestly clean enough that I could undercoat the whole thing and probably get away with it. Decisions, decisions.

The new wiper motor doesn’t work on high.
Everything else works.
I never use high, so no big deal, but I might go ahead and try to re-spline the OE motor so I have it around when this reman unit inevitably fails.

One more question about those boxes. I found a drivers side box, the narrow tall one. Can anyone tell me or maybe Adam, how the hell this ting mounts? I got it second hand and it came just as the box.
