    Default Armo's 79 LTD 2dr build.

    After buying my 2dr ltd a fw months back, I have replaced and fix most of the mechanical issues(starter, entire brakes, a/c, cooling system,etc), now its time for the fun stuff. Like dual exhaust, paint, rims, slick top conversion, cd player, etc. So I will be taking pics of my ride as time allows for all the progress I have made of my 2dr LTD build.Heres how she looked when i got her. I will post current pics later.

    Looks a lot like one that was on eBay a couple months ago. That one was in Michigan, though, somewhere around Washentaw County.

    you sir are scary. You didnt remove ANYTHING....doesnt even look like you removed the interior trim to access the bolts for the exterior trim. Get a flat head screwdriver. heat it it up and bend it 90* and use that to pry up the opera window trim.

    Wow, an LTD-S tudor. That is truly a rare piece right there, and looks to be extremely clean. I've seen quite a few nice looking 79-82 LTD-S Sedans driving around here in the south, but only ever One LTD-S Tudor, and it was pretty beat.

    Looks like your Vinyl Top came off easier than mine did.

    Good luck with your project!

    Cool

    yes, another memeber to the 2-door slick-top club

    and ur lucky, looks like your top didnt have insulation under the vynil, took me like 2 hours to get everything off

    very nice car, but arent the 79's supposed to have little vents on the front fenders and behind the rear windows ???


    good luck on teh rest mang

    It's not an LTD Landau, so it don't have the vents.
