      Thanks for the compliment and for the Ligenfelter adapter suggestion. I will take a look at the adapter.

      Just in case you'd like to know, the crown vic coilovers take 5" diameter springs. That's the same size as mustang 2 stuff so there is a broad spectrum of spring rates available if you wish to retain the oem shock.

      I was unaware that the mustang 2 springs were the same size. Good to know. Thanks.

      One nice thing about working on a truck cab is that a rotisserie is not needed. One person can flip them on the side or back. Spot welding on the underside is almost finished.

      Thanks, Eddie. Lots of work left to do, particularly refining the sheet metal work (including patches of bullet holes!)

      Wise move! And if you hadn't already considered it, you could add a quick disconnect to the wiring so you can easily remove the dash for servicing.

      That is the plan, Peanut. A plan to eliminate or at least reduce the physical contortions typically necessary to work on stuff behind a dash!

      Also, I plan to use a permanently mounted table for a dashboard (OBD2), so as technology changes I can pop the dash to mount a different tablet or whatever.

      Excellent.

      I'm a Studebaker guy, and I'm jealous of the R-series Stude truck guys who can easily access the back of their gauge panel through the top of the firewall in the engine compartment!

      Peanut, I almost bought a R-series Stude with excellent sheetmetal and bad engine. In 1967. For $50. Still regret not buying it! Love the R-series and the '37 Express Coupe pickup.

      Finished most of the exhaust system while I could work on it from above and not laying on my back.

      Nice to hear it run, but a long way from being drivable.

      Fuel and brake lines next, then back to body work.
