Nice looking car!
When you put the t-stat in, did you put it in upside down? Just a thought.

I don't think so, I pretty much did a mirror installation also my dad was helping me.

I would pull the radiator and have it cleaned at a radiator shop. This is a lot cheaper than paying for a new head gasket. My neighbor had to get head gasket replaced on a pontiac and I think it cost him about $1500.

On my 2006 that i don't have anymore it was the Fan Resistor. Fan wasn't coming on (fan motor was fine but the resistor (big) was broken)

Fan seems to come on just fine. Took it to a shop and did a pressure check, not a blown head gasket. The mech couldn't figure it out either.

Ok stop with the head gasket. Not saying its 100% not that but it wasn't for me. And lots of others, plus you can do a simple pressure check on the overflow. First go get a cap from ford. I hate going to the dealer but trust me. If that is not the prob. I know this makes no sence but it is what fix the same problem I had, and others. Change the overflow! Not sure if it's the neck that gets warped or the threads but for a $100 bucks or so I never had a problem again. Also run your engine with the cap off until it overflows. This will get any air out that also causes that to happen.
