What did you do to your Transit today?

To start off this thread, I ran rear speaker wire down the driver A pillar to connect to head unit and speakers at some point in the future. I also ran a segment of 7-wire sprinkler control cable through the A pillar with short term thoughts of a on/off/door switch replacing the cargo light fuse (with fuse in line) mounted by the slider. And long term thoughts of controlling or powering other things in the cargo area.

What!? This seems new to me. Had you noted the first? Have there been any other owners with this?

It's not what I did it's what someone else did. SOMEONE keyed my passenger door just below the window. It was only 7" long and not a deep scratch but did not make my day. Long cooling off period.

Someone pryed to the passenger side key hole and damaged the lock. We now replaced it with no key access.

It's a shame that anyone wants to vandalize other's vechicle in public place
