    working in between stuff drying at the shop had to cut and drill the rear veiw mirror braket to hold my new mirror, also stripped the chrome and sanded it and did a quick polish to make it presentable.

    I think it may look aight in there 😈

    this mirror has followed me around for a number of years and a number of vehicles I think its finaly found its permanent home 😀

    going to start working on the taillights next 😉

    here we go!

    hows this for a loop who else is doing 60 mph with over 30 mpg in their 62? 😆

    here is the new 99 window motor on the 62 regulator ready to get hooked up fits in door perfectly no clearance issues

    here is the left quarter getting finished up where I widened the wheelhouse for clearance, getting the gas door suround in a week or two to finish that up then Ill straighten out the left quarter and finish it.

    a bmw 5 series donated this ultra small and strong trunk latch wich I whipped up in just an hour at lunch to work

    I made a strong striker plate in place of the gas filler hole (also note I plan on selling the 62 rear filler chrome complete with center gas door if any one is interested)

    Sorry to hear that Syko. Hoping things will take a turn for the better.

    I got some good prospects and they even pay more so hopefully one will pan out.

    I sold my old 66 ford truck to help with bills and such and a HUGE swapmeet came up this weekend and to lift my spirits I decided for the first time in years I would go there and actually BUY stuff, so I picked up my daughter and we headed out to the swapmeet. Usualy the prices even on new parts are outragous but this year I found everything I needed and some other stuff I didnt but got anyway for great prices! really made me feel better about everything plus my daughter was digging through boxes and everything she touched she would ask if it was a lincoln part lol.

    first off I couldnt pass on this deal a pair of crystal blue dot headlights for only $30!! I was like wow, every other vender was 100+ for them so I snagged them and let me tell you they were going like hotcakes!

    second I got some LED lights for my turn signals for $20 and a LED liscence light for $10 wich I thought was fair, the guy even had peep mirros with LED signals in them for only $30 and they were trick! he said in about 6 months they should have side mirrors with signals in them sweet!

    got my window reg rollers $1 a peice…sweet

    picked up soem brand new shocks for….$1 a pair!!~! sweet! now I can tighten up my front end!

    and got what I really wanted…some seat belts for the rear seat and for what I was willing to pay $15 a set..

    and here is my mini me, shes awesome and a trooper she has Juvenial Rheumatoid Arthritis, and the wagon was more for her then parts but it dosnt stop her from the swap meet or getting toe socks lol

    on the way out I stoped at a good freinds of mine shop and checked everythign out and got some good info on alot, this man helped me start my shop years ago and has been a major influence in my auto customizing skills.

    didn have the time to work on my car today that I thougt I would, I did start on modding the headlight buckets to fit the lights. then I needed my reemer to mod the grill and didnt have it so I stoped on that and decided to start on the turn signals. I had to trim some of the lens on the LED to fit the 62 housing…

    park on

    turn signal

    stock lens installed

    really happy how they work and how bright they are, I may convert the rear later but I really like the powerfull glow that three bulbs in each of the rear lights do at night.

    did some quick refinishing of my dash components in one of the colors I plan on using on the car (HOK planet green)


    looks pretty good in the car actually looks like an older painted dash a bit to me now

    also got the front wheels on as well finaly, a bit of grinding to the front caliper and a small spacer and they fit like butter, did have one wheel that the hub was super loose on and lucked out and got another wheel for it for $30 and swaped it out

    muh car being all suspect out front

    thanks for the props Conti, much appreciated!

    Ive just been mainly driving it right now but I finaly put in time to work on the drivers quarter, I was tired of looking at my rigged gas door so it was time to get it straight plus get the whole quarter in decent near finished shape overall, so I started on it.

    got the 64 impala gas door recess roughed in

    heavy cuttin and rewelding of the 90 lx mustang gas door

    large skim coat of the quarter in body filler, mind you many say body filler is bad…well cheap filler isnt the best if you use a good high brand you wont run into any problems later

    alittle etch primer to save it overnight and look! its a suicide gas door how novel…lol

    body work 90% roughed in and primmed

    man that looks ALOT better now!

    Ive decided just to sell a set of nice 22 inch wheels that ive had for a bit, and buy new supremes and pinner whites to roll on I just cant figure out a way to get the hubcaps to work on my stock wheels without a bunch of weird stuff being fabbed up for it, plus I dont like the prices of 16 inch white wall tires either… Also I liked the slightly softer ride the 15 inch tires gave me.

    In the mean time I finaly installed my headlights, there just the H7 bulbs right now but plan on putting 6k and 8k HID’s in for high and low beams 😯 I got the 8k allready just need some more duckets for the 6k, that should provide plenty of light for nighttime driving….lol

    last pic of the “hybrid” on the cragers

    I just wasnt happy with them 😕

    any way I had some 22’s that I never planned on putting on my car but all the guys from the shop wanted me to so I mounted one to see what the fuss was about.


    DONT DIG IT….big wheels just isnt me on my car…it soon came right back off never to return to the lincoln…. :smt006

    now onto the main thing….

    for years I have never fixed the quarter panels where I had to emergency pull my car onto a trailer by its rear body panel effectivly sucking both quarters in making the deck lid not able to fit correctly. Pointless to do any type of body work until this was resolved.. So I wrote up a work order on my car today and put it on the frame rack….

    then chained the car down lightly as I didnt have to do a heavy pull

    this was done to both sides with the drivers side first as it was the most damaged side

    the end result was something I can work with now 😀

    after the drivers side was done I did a light pull on the passenger side for the same result… now I can get started finaly on the finish body work!

    oh… I added a led third brake light….it maybe temporary but I sure do have alot of people nearly rear ending me all the time..I figured they just may not notice the taillights that much?

    till next time!!!
