Hi folks, I have made some progress. Tranny's been put in. Working on getting front & rear U joints installed. She shifts fantastic but the driveline rumbles and clanks like hell..hopefully the new joints will help..(Yeah I know.. I should have insisted on new joints to start with but you know how those late nite, beer soaked, shadetree garage parties go.) Shoot, I was just glad to get the tranny stabbed that night.. Today the local picky part came thru and I scored a very cool plush dark green leather front split bench interior from a '95 Continental.. Still in pretty darn good shape. I also snagged the green carpet and mats, gonna be a lot better than what's in my car now..(see "before pics)...anyway, for $111 bucks out the door I'm not complaining... well, we'll see how it goes. My mech says he'll mount the slick Lincoln power switches we got in my stock door panels.
