Don't laugh guys...Somewhere West of Württemberg...on a tour of the Wixom Plant in 1993,

they used bf2x4's to accomplish the same thing on Town Car & Mark Vlll hoods!

That's exactly how door fit was adjusted at the Linden Ford/ Lincoln/Mercury plant. A plain ole 2X4 to pry the door into position at the final assembly station. Then they wonder why the Japs ate our lunch.........Bobn

It reminds me of a printing press mechanic that came in our shop years ago to repair a press. In his toolbox he had three hammers. Small, medium and large. He used all three!:D

:D I went out on a service call for a no start. Guy said the starter just went click. I had him try it while I smacked the starter with a ford tool. Car started, he ask me if he owes anything? I said just for the service call. He said( I have to pay you for banging on my car with a hammer?) I said no, you pay me for knowing where to bang on it.:D

I have a piece of an East German Trabant. The body was Masonite with

a gelcoat surface! Looks just like these films, must be 70's or 80's films

because East Germany ceased to exist in 1989. Probably the Trabant

ceased at the same time.
