Thermos can stay on if you like. Just need to be unplugged.

Cooling system is pretty much self bleeding. Just make sure you have the heater turned on when you run it & you will probably need to top it up again once the thermo stat opens up after running it for a bit.

There is that plug where the heater lines come out of the manifold toward the front on top. I dont think it required to be bleed there, but I always do it just for piece of mind. You can take the plug right out when you are first filling it, and then just loosen it off a little to bleed once it has warmed up (be carefull it dont come right out though, unless you like that burning feeling).

Where did you get those polished door sill scuff plates :?:

Besides the two massive ones, there's two small ones (1 to the top hose & 1 to the radiator from the filler bottle), & one bigger one that goes from the bottom of the filler bottle to the side of the radiator. & of course the trans cooler line (if it auto).

Did your come with the ford logo on or did you get the stickers yourself ?
