    Nice!

    Are the door corner windows non-functional? I don't see where they open up.

    They are powered; they drop into the door before the main door glass when going down and last when going up. Box TCs and barge Lincolns have the same setup.

    Nicely done!!! Now find an upper intake at the JY and spray it the same color as the valve covers and you will have a sharp looking engine! That's what I did to my Ranger. If you're cheeky, give the intake the same 2-tone treatment that the car has. :o

    Sweet looking ride Matt. Your spec sheet looks like an exact layout of mine. I am glad someone actually read the damned thing with all of the work I have put into my car.

    Yes 87gtvic i used your layout because i liked how you put it out. The conversion was a success. Car does well. Every now and then while driving the charging system flashes on the message center then goes away then later does the same thing though its charging at 14.5v im wondering if the brain box is bad. Also with key on not running it doesnt flash charge system, or oil pressure. Now in key in acc mode it flashes charge system so i dont get whats up with that.

    Very nice, I like the red valve covers and wires. I too was going to ask what your plans are for the seats? I imagine the likely hood of finding those in the junkyard is extremely low.

    Those seats are definitly unobtainium...! I'd look for a nice red set. White would be nicer but good luck finding a nice set of white too!

    Is it a digi dash?
    What did you do with all the old leftover wiring from the old coil and old external regulator wiring? All that's needed from that mess is the wire for the AMP light and a key-on for the yellow 3G wire, if you wired it that way. If the half dozen or so leftover wires are still hanging around, they could be causing trouble - the wiring at the regulator plug is usually very crumbly.

If the half dozen or so leftover wires are still hanging around, they could be causing trouble - the wiring at the regulator plug is usually very crumbly.

    I did the 3G swap like i did on the town car stator wire connected together with the other stator wire on the 3G plug. The only wire i used from the leftover plug was lt green with red stripe for the amp light. Its a digi dash. The main charge cable hooks to the stud on the 3G then goes to one end of the Meaga Fuse an the the other end of the mega fuse connects to the underhood fuse box tied with the battery wire going to the starter solenoid. Am i missing a connection ? The other wire on the 3G plug which i believe is yellow with a black stripe has a eyelet on the other and connects it onto the stud of the 3g alternator. I swapped it from 1G external to 3G unlike 2G to 3G like i did on the town car.
    the old 1G wiring is completley removed from the vehicle. Only wire i kept from it was the lt green with red stripe wire.
