      I installed both of the vent windows I bought from Alain. The open vent windows provide excellent airflow to my un-airconditioned Fox.

      And they look cool too.

      [QUOTE=SourKandi;87605166]I saw another box in the wild today!

      They're a rare find in the wild, however they're most often seen leaking oil in garages.

      You'll like the new cam, whichever you buy. My engine has noticeably more "go" to it than using the stock cam. I'm not sure about the MSD ignition though

      I had to remove the door card to gain access to the bolt that loosens the vertical window guide. I had to remove the window glass to make room for the frame to "get out of the way" to slide the...

      Yes for all above. When I autocross the fox I need as much oil as I can get to keep the valve lifters happy. I figured that when I change the oil again I'll try the diesel filter.

      I fitted one of my vent windows from Alain. It's so much better to have more airflow. The driver side window is going in after I get my new seals installed. Installation was simple, and was made...

      My brake pedal was much better (but not quite what I want) after I replaced the shoes, springs and wheel cylinders. I did the same as you; I bled the brakes time and time again with no significant...

      I'll let you know when I tackle this small problem. I suspect I'll have to remove the pulley to properly set the seal.

      Alain-How much has the Fox evolved from our generation? Other than a cool looking 16v motor, it seems to be similar with what were familiar. Or not at all, I'm not sure.

      I decided to tackle an ongoing oil leak. The actual work begins Sunday, but a choice nonetheless.
      I'm going to get more parts for sale up soon too.
