Ok on the monocolorů painted to match will make it disappear some.

haha yeah. i did it at my friends house and his driveway is like 1/4 mile long and a hill, it kept wanting to get away so we flipped it over. I flushed it because the truck has 57400 miles and I can bet the coolant was stock since it has no record of it going into a ford dealerhip for service yet the coolant was motorcraft gold, my wipers are motorcraft, everything is factory haha. I'm doing the oil tomorrow, 5 quarts of motorcraft syn-blend 5w-30 and a FL820 ready to go in.

yes i used motorcraft gold for the coolant haha
