    - Wheels & Tires
    - Audio/Video
    - Aesthetics

    Whoever's got a mesh grill how-to should post it; IIRC that's one of the most requested how-to's.

          The process of moving ALL how-tos is in the works.. No worries there! For now, the link is there to redirect to the old forum. Eventually, they'll all be in this one.

            A Suggestion

            I'd like to suggest separate forums for the ATX vs MTX drivetrains.

            Each has its own set of common problems and it would be easier for members to find relevent information without having to sort through all the stuff for the other transaxle system.

              I dont think enough people post in each forum to warrent having different ones. Its not that hard to say ATX or MTX.

                    can someone make a how-to for the parking lights on with fog lights mod? Always wonderd why svt didnt do this with the contour and did with the other svt models.

                      has to do with state law I believe, most say that you can't have more then 2 pairs of forward facing lights on at one time ... if the fog worked that way stock that would be three pairs on with the highs on ... for the mod take the signal wire for the relay and connect to the constant power source to the relay ...

                          Chilton Repair Manual

                          I was at my local pepboys earlier today and I saw a cd that covers the 98-99 contour, mystique, and c svt. I'm not sure why 2000 wouldn't be covered but I assume its the same. Just a suggestion I don't know how usefull it will be considering its not a haynes book, but I saw if you got an SVT, pick one up.

                              That info is still on the ceg home page, click the mods/parts and then the how to section. It's all still there, I just read it.
