1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look -EricTheCarGuy
Many of you have been asking me about Fairmont videos so I thought I would make this one where I take a closer look at what I have to work with. I also talk about some of my plans for this car going forward. I think I have a really nice 'shell' to work with. I have my work cut out for me that's for sure, but as I say in the video, that will just make for more interesting videos. For now, I think I'll drive it. It's a good car after all. A few minor issues, but nothing to really worry about. I may do some of the repairs such as the inner tie rod in an upcoming video. I just need to work out the alignment when I'm done. Looks like an easy job though, easier than some of the other power steering rack stuff I've done. Anyway, enjoy the video. Here's some links.

Replacing Inner Tie Rods Fox Body Ford -EricTheCarGuy
After shooting "1979 Ford Fairmont a Closer Look" I decided to replace the right inner tie rod on the Fairmont. It was pretty loose and was also wearing my tire on that side a little funny. I thought it would be a good idea to just go ahead and replace it. As you can see in the video it's not that difficult. I had a harder time with the cotter pin than the inner tie rod. Still, this video will apply to all fox bodies of this vintage and get you the information you need to know to get the job done. Here's some useful links.
