PostSubject: Summer task list for the Fairmont   Mon May 25, 2009 7:08 pm

My son is going to be taking the Fairmont back to college in the fall, so i've got about 8 weeks to get some things done on the car. It hasn't been more than a few miles from home since I swapped the engine. It's the things I've wanted to do, but never finished.

Tailpipes. Currently running stock Mustang H Pipe, mid pipes and mufflers.
Fuel lines. I'm using the stock lines from the 4 cyl, and they're dangerously close to the drivers side header. I think I'm going to order 3/8" line from summit, and just run a supply and return down the passenger rail.
Washer bottle I have one from a Fox mustang, but I think I need to pull the fender to install it. My cold air intake runs through where the battery used to live, and the battery was swapped to the other side where the washer tank used to be.
heaterIt needs a new heater core, and the coolant valve.

I'd love to get the posi in, and swap the front spindles, but that will only be if i have enough time. Wish me luck.

Good luck man! My list is just as long.

On the washer bottle, this weekend I went to a car show and there was ONE Fairmont there. The guy had installed a late 60's style water bottle (soft sided style). He said he found it on Dearborn Classics. It looks like a hot water bottle and hangs from a simple bracket. He then mounted the pump in the fender so you couldn't see it.

Just another option.

My list for now.
1. pretty up engine bay and engine
2. body and paint
3. interior and audio
4. wheels and tires
5. five lug conversion

Drivtrain mods will come as money permits, I want to keep it a nice cruiser for now. I've decided to go old school with the wheels and I'm going with 14x6 front and 15x9 rear Cragar S/S wheels. Undecided on tires, probably something that is fairly inexpensive but decent quality.

Tailpipes arrived yesterday. I ended up ordering new Maremont pipes for a Mustang GT. I wasted so much time looking for pipes on Craigslist, and these were only like $80 shipped to my door. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. I'm thinking i'll extend the mid pipes to compensate for the longer wheelbase and hopefully everything will fall in to place. One concern is the flex brake line leading to the rear diff. we'll see. Once the pipes are in, I can start to re route the fuel lines to the passenger side.

I used a washer bottle/coolant over flow from a 90`s explorer. It pretty much bolted right in and holds alot more washer than the stock bottle ever did.
