It has been too long since I've had a chance to give an update here, but I have done several things in the last two weekends:
Last weekend, Scott and I swapped the front seats, flasher module and steering wheel between the new Special and the old one.
Then I cleaned the old Special up, removed the last of the dip on the cladding, and sent photos to my friend who wants to buy it - my friend who bought Ashley's Pro Am.
He is excited and agreed to buy the car in three weeks. The Pro Am and the Special will be back under one roof.
Then, just after we'd agreed to the deal, the BCM went on the fritz in the old Special - the lock buttons, window switches, and moonroof switch made the high beams flash.
I initially was extremely upset about this with the prospect of changing mileage, but then I located a BCM in a yard in Rhode Island with almost the exact same mileage as my car (only 10 miles over!).
During the week, I sold my mother-in-law's 2010 Fusion Hybrid for her. Quick and efficient sale - just what I needed to get one more spot in the driveway.
This weekend I pulled that BCM from that yard, swapped it into the old Special, and all the problems are gone.
The Ram needs an EGR valve, so that is the next project on the horizon.
Oh, and I actually need to start putting the new Special back together, as it is currently sans lower dash pieces, radio, and dash trim.
I have a new dash pad for it and am considering swapping that in before I put the rest of it back together.
Depends on the weather and my availability the next couple of weekends.
