    Now the whole top half of the motor will be far to big for the bottom half.

    Next step is to clean up all the packed dirt, install the Team Z suspension, Cobra brakes, eliminate the electric brake booster, remove the rest of the engine harness and remount the intercooler into a new spot I found.

    With out a flash under the car, the intercooler hides rather well.

    So, its no mystery if this project has stalled but there is a reason. I'll hopefully be closing on this non 1 car garage place to live next week.

    I also had the conversation with the shop about getting a cam made for the motor as well so, things are still going forward, just at a slow pace.

    Got the keys to the new house with a much better garage. I am hoping to get the Lincoln into the garage next week.

    I removed the air ride and brake system wiring from the car. Next up is the security system and that complex hunk of crap.

    In theory every thing will work. The dash lights, and all exterior lights work. The engine harness was had two burnt connectors on it and after messing with it, I decided to get a new 1 piece harness later. I did find that some of the engine harness shared wires with the rest of that big harness so, if the car fires on the first try or not is unknown (the new harness should make that a non issue).

      Put it on the ground today and simulated ride height with the motor and turbo kit. It should be another inch to inch and a half lower with the engine and turbo kit in according to the weights and spring rate on the font.

        Got the brakes finished up.

        [​IMG]


        I guess, it was time for new rear brakes.

        Why Team Z? Because they are unbeatable.

        One shock bolt does not want to leave its home so, its soaking in some Deep Creep for a while. I can't wait to see the new ride height.

        Got the rear springs in today. Once I pull the rack off the other K, clean it up and put it in to the car, the car will be ready to head into the chassis shop.

        Well, its ready to go to the chassis shop. Depending on how the car sits with the rear control arms that are being made for it, I may go back to the old springs to lower it.

        So, this one time I tried to put a 100lb 5ft long hood on a car by myself...

        Small update, the chassis work has started.

        [​IMG]

        [​IMG]

        200,000 miles took its toll on the front control arm bolts (all of the suspension bolts really).

        PSA: Do not stick your camera this close to a lit torch and oil/grease covered parts.

        Got a sneak peak from the shop last night.

        Started to make new seat brackets for the car.

        The hardest part so far, the bracket next to the tunnel has to have a contour made to go around the tunnel.

        Time to make a new way of mounting the seat, it sits far to high to be usable.

        Recently, I had a snow tire let go on the beater and having killed two factory 18s, I decided to order to wheels for it. Downfall, no one had them in stock due to the bolt pattern. Well, the new wheels came in today so, I swapped the tires from the factory 18s over and put them on the car.

        The rear coil overs came in yesterday and I put them on today. It is safe to say that with no weight in the car, I'll have to raise it up about an inch and do some fender work.

        Picked up a different turbo than the On3 one that I have.
        25852091163_a287937c11_b.jpg BCN_8599 by Detroit Style, on Flickr

        Playing around with potential turbo placement and debating going to a tube front to make more room.
        26466332841_c62683ff97_b.jpg BCN_8629 by Detroit Style, on Flickr

        Ready to pull all the wiring out of the car, a Mustang dash and a new column as well as finish pulling out the sound deadening.

        26014875863_8476fe367c_b.jpg BCN_8640 by Detroit Style, on Flickr

        Figured that I'd knock out some work today so, here are the mid evening update. The column support is out, the main harness is about ready to be fully pulled out of the car and, the parking brake assembly is gone for good.

        Parking brake cable is dying to get out of there.

        Started to make a mold fo the deck lid in order to make a lighter than steel version.
        26736271141_d5bba800ee_b.jpg BCN_8699 by Detroit Style, on Flickr

        The car was a really nice color before the last owner made it flat black.
        26198153784_3ce05d3c92_b.jpg BCN_8703 by Detroit Style, on Flickr

        Lots of waxy goodness ( I knew I kept this garbage wax for a reason).
        26736269381_22ec982d34_b.jpg BCN_8705 by Detroit Style, on Flickr

        Made sure to keep the hump for all the Lincoln looks as possible.
        26198152374_6653216dbe_b.jpg BCN_8717 by Detroit Style, on Flickr

        Left off with this for the night, tomorrow I'll attack the top side.

        Well, for a first attempt at a large panel mold, i don't think its too terrible. There is a lot of room for improvement but, not horribly terrible.

        I must have done something right, it fits with out the metal deck lid under it.

        [​IMG]

        Now, its time to take what I learn from what I did wrong and do it for real with carbon.

        I started to order stuff again, last week my motor plate stuff came in from Skinny Kid, this week a bunch of stuff from Rhodes Race Cars should be here. The goal is to have all the chassis work done by fall. Leaving the drive-line and fuel system for the winter/spring.

        [​IMG]

        Started cleaning up the engine bay, there will be filler panels made for the firewall and then everything will be blasted, sealed and painted.

        I haven't touched this car in a while, mostly due to have 0 money after bills have been paid but, that being said, I did just get back from the store, I am going to attempt to de-power the rack and get it setup to work with the SN95 spindles. The debate is, do I make a video of it or just a few pictures.

        Well, the de-powering failed. The seal at the top of the steering shaft isn't removable. The good news is, the rack must be so far gone that, its actually real easy to move by hand so, I put it back together and put the SN95 bits on it. Tomorrow I need to get some sealant to seal up the ports for the fluid and install the rack again. It will be nice to not have floppy pickle wheels to make moving the car easier.


        I should also say, I have been dicking around with the engine bay, slowly getting it stripped and ready for paint and fab work.
