    Love that stainless trim for the doors. Good eye for the details.

    Wheels and the brake upgrade make the car's stance all business.

    Yes. I had an Autumn Red LS. I miss it. But this Gen 2 will blow it away. When I am done.

    Installed roof spoiler & color matched rear surround. Made custom metallic blue Lincoln Star emblem for it. Installed “Lincoln” rocker trim. The rears covered the OEM holes. But the fronts weren’t long enough. So I mounted them to the plastic OEM trim. Not exactly the look I was going for. But better then before. Painted the LSE badge on the floors mats. They needed some TLC. Looks way better then before.

      He means the solid red tail lights. Most are two tone red/white.

      Looks good Rollin!

      Before, two-tone taillights.
      After, all red taillights.

      Painted strut caps & plenum cover. Not my best work. But it’s temporary. Till I go all out on the paint job.

      Cool that the brakes cleared, one hurdle out of the way.

      Can't wait til Monday to see what's in store for the bumper and rear end.

      I got the Gen 1 LSE rear valance modified to fit the Gen 2. I like the way it flows with the Gen 1 LSE side skirts. The brackets for the rear defuser are drying. Be ready to finish the carbonfiber rear defuser tomorrow.

        Had this Grant steering wheel for a previous project. It matches the Silver Birch.
