    Thanks for starting this thread on your lincoln build! I never really looked at one close. Im lovin the C piller chrome treatment with the triple bullets. And those skirts are freakin awesome!! Looks like you already lowered it from the original pics. I might of missed that in your thread, but how did you lower it? Dropped suspension, cut coils and blocks, bags or ??
    Keep up the good work! Nothin like having your OWN project huh?! way cool

    right now there are blocks in the rear.. and the front springs have been taken out and replaced with all thread to figure out where we want the height. its gonna have air ride eventually... but the pictures you see lowered will be ride height when finished.
     
  16. Very cool... I'd shave the trim off the trunk.

    We travel out to Rehoboth every other year my wife's aunt has a beach house there.

    If you can, Post pics on how you do the air ride. I would like to do that as well but I have a feeling you will be ahead of me with that. So any info would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

    For the record I in no way can take credit for all the work that has been done to this car. This man has helped me 110% and has taught me so much I could never repay him... Thank you Corry Hunter

    My dad bought one exactly like yours new. He was driving too fast on a old county road and rolled it over a few times after going over one of those one lane up & down small bridges. He never kept a car more than 6 months back them.
    I really like what your doing to your car - and I like seeing you working on it too. It will mean so much more to you when it's done. The look on guys faces when you tell them you did the work yourself will be real fun for you. Good luck and keep posting.
