    I received the reman Cobra MAF and installed it, but I can't start the engine while the trans project is going, so no news on that yet. I'm waiting on my wife to be around so I can pull the trans without dropping on myself, but she's worked the last 3 days all day. She's off tomorrow though.

    Decided to work on a little side project since the dash was partly taken apart. This blemish on the dash pad has always bothered me. And the original dash pad is starting to get a little droopy.

    When I was selling Focus parts, one guy paid with a CJ Pony gift card, so I used the opportunity to grab a new dash pad.

    It's a pretty nice piece, but the shape isn't quite right and I had to oval one of the stud holes to make it line up better.

    But no more blemish! And now I know how to take out these vent bezels. It might not be that easy to tell in pictures, but my natural black dash has lived a hard life. One of these days I might remove the vent bezels at the outer corners and repaint them. There's another white spot on the driver's side below the vent (how the hell did that happen?!) and other discolored spots. I don't think the whole dash needs it, but those corners for sure. I just wish for a day when all the problems with the running gear on this car are solved so I can focus on the more fun stuff like that. I used to think I was close to having that, but then this year happened. Ugh
