Thanks!


More parts going back on !!

Front bumper fillers, headlights and doors, signal lights and cornering lights, forgot to paint the centre filler piece bolted to the bumper so that will have to wait until Monday.

Got the Lincoln home for the first time in years, many years lol.

Still lots to do but after I had the alignment done I just had to drive it home for the night!

Cleaned up the engine compartment and replaced the ignition wires with black ones.

Also replaced the Edelbrock 800cfm with a Proform (Holley) 650cfm, much happier now.

I generally don’t like modified cars, but I can see loving this one.

Going to get the windows tinted tomorrow.

Then I need to fix the AC, having issues with the ATC i think so will have to sort that out.
