I went to 1337ssei'* house and took pictures of some work. We did the plugs, plug wires, took off and cleaned the ignition coil area, and replaced the ignition coils. Then we took off the door panels again and installed another set of aftermarket speakers. He got a pair for $40, and we put on the recently rediscovered XTC speaker baffles. Now we both have some!
I classily arrived in the Aerostar. It'* the choice of the professional winner and ladies man.
The work begins! The NAPA Belden plug wires fell apart in the front, but the rear set held up fine. The warranty probably covers that, but NAPA doesn't want to exchange these.
A while ago, he got a new motor mount. Have a look.
In this picture, things are still mostly in place. The old coils and some plug wires are still there, and you can see the "professionally" mounted PCM.
Here, the new ignition coils are in place, and the strut bar has been removed for the arm hatred ceremony, AKA rear plug work.
Here are the fallen apart plug wires:

We healthily busted a fluorescent bulb while working. Here'* a picture.
EDIT: Wow! My hand looks weird in this picture! I'm trying to replicate that, but I can't. I don't know what angle that is or why my thumb is doing that.

I'm still getting used to the camera. More speaker pictures.
