  3. Last week, I ordered the CD with the 6 ford assembly manuals. UPS man delivered it today. On the CD, there are 6 pdf files with the manuals and helpful pictures and information. Unfortunately, the folks who made them put a huge stinking watermark of their company name over every single page. On some pages, the watermark obscures the information I actually wanted to see. The pages could already be a bit tough to read to begin with. The huge diagonal banner wasn't helping. I whipped up a bash 1-liner that takes each PDF file, decompresses it, and changes the opacity of the watermark. It makes the thing much easier to read and see the pictures now. I figured it would be helpful to anybody else who'd gotten these. Obviously, you have to copy them off your CD before you can edit them. Bash command I made for my computer running linux with pdftk, all free and open source software. Changes it from 50% transparent to 99% transparent. find . -maxdepth 1 -name \*.pdf -exec sh -c "mkdir tmp ; pdftk '{}' output tmp/uncompressed.pdf uncompress && sed -e 's/^0.5 g$/0.99 g/g' tmp/uncompressed.pdf > 'unwatermarked/{}' && rm -rf tmp" \; Before and after.

  5. Tim thank you and I have found another place who seems much better. I have changed the headlamps as you mention above, the speedo to kph with one of the overlay kits, and for teh TUV already put the rear indicators into the reversing lamps lens...for now. Hopefully next week all will be done and i can go and get my license plates!

  11. Hi Nigel, find another inspector, please! My Mach 1 still has the red Pony indicator and no inspector has ever complained about that! And don't let you be forced to another unecessary changes to your car! I still have the original taillights, hazard warning light indicator and so on... The only thing that had to be changed thanks to the German law is the position lamp in the front. They don't have to glow orange. You can keep the lower turn signal lights, have to change the headlights to H4 standard with integrated parking lamps. The original parking lamps/grille lamps have to be non functional as orange front light is (officially) is not allowed here. But nothing else! You have to find a more experienced inspector!
