    That has to be the first thing every Maverick owner has to fix. I remember getting mine and having that squeak. It was very annoying, until I tracked it down and lubed it up.

    I did not think they would squeak after being rebuilt, and the spueak is only on the passenger side of the car.

    I heard the squeak, and couldn't figure out where it was coming from.

    I don't think I had found this forum yet, so I just had to push on the car and listen to where the noise was coming from, which is difficult for me because I am hearing impaired, but I could still hear the squeak.

    I finally found those semi-hidden grease zerks that are hard to reach, and filled them up and the noise went away. But I had to live with it for several weeks before it started to drive me nuts, and I started looking for it.

    I think you need 10 posts before you can post pictures. Visit one of the other active threads and make some comments, the come back and show us your car!

    EDIT--I guess you figured it out while I was typing this post! :thumbs2:

    So, is it red or orange? Looks completely different in the sun! NICE!!!

    Did you add the starbursts on the rims, or did that happen accidentally, or did you add an effect or filter to the camera?

    That was actully the sun, had it in the back yard in full sunlight. The car is orange. It was a pretty cool looking effect though.
