    Bumper looks good in mockup form. The bumper "peak" seems to line up well with the corner light "peak". Let that be your final guide.

    Been reading this thread (not the whole thing yet)...I have a built 4.6 DOHC sitting in storage, big supercharger etc. I have been thinking about putting it in my 84 wagon...I see you did a 2 valve 4.6, do you think a 4 valve would fit or would it have clearance issues? I can't tell if things like upper control arms, evaporator box, steering shaft and wiper box would clear the 4.6 DOHC. any thoughts?

    4.6 DOHC came in Marauders so it will fit a box since under hood dimensions didn't change much. You will probably have to swap out the brake booster for a smaller one to clear the valve cover though.

    ok. Did you have the mod or change the evap box for your 2 valve swap? I think control arms are interchangeable from Aero (at least early Aero) to Box if that's an issue? wiper box is definitely smaller on the newer cars and I can't even see the motor on the marauder in pics I am looking at! Wonder where they hid it...

    I swapped to Aero evap box when I did the 2v because it looked to be in better shape and had a cut out for blower motor resistor. It's basically same as a box one though so no changes are required. I did mod the evap for 5.4 DOHC.

    Box wiper box fits fine with 2v. I had to remove wiper box when I went to 5.4 DOHC.

    Holy crap, I kept reading and saw you dropped in the 5.4! very cool. So no working wipers as your car sits currently?

    Nope. Haven't been able to figure out a wiper solution yet.

    Mod Box has been neglected since October or so. Today I finally got off my ass and installed "French" high beams because I wasn't feeling dual projector setup. Being yellow they also help to break up the monotone front end.

    If anyone wants a set of projectors I can build you one. They will be bi-xenon so technically your high beam sealed beams can be eliminated completely or turned into air intakes or whatever.

    You should move to Quebec to go with the yellow lenses. Are they proper selective yellow fogs, or just yellow?

    Yup, that's what I have in there now. Used Dapper Lightning lights as the base. Ripped their projectors out and put Morimoto minis in there. They basically pop right in with almost not mods necessary.

    I found this thread when researching for a similar project (89 marquis wagon on an 03 interceptor frame), and I have 2 questions: 1st, any advice for someone looking to embark on a similar journey? And 2nd, is there anything you know now about this project that you wish you knew when you started it?
