Thats right I'm going to be building this beast!, and ONLY on FR.net! Anyways I want to start out with the basic information on the car. Its a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor. (Badges Removed) Its a ex cab, ex cop car. LOL 100% hoopty. Anyways My plans are to keep it Blue and black, but Sand it down and repaint it proper. Upgrade the 4.6. Lower the car all together, and clean up the interior.


A little Information!


Engine and drive train:
The Police Interceptor is equipped with an external oil-to-coolant heat exchanger to reduce engine oil temperatures, allowing the vehicles to idle for extended lengths of time without overheating. The engine oil coolers are notorious for seeping oil from the O-ring seals after extensive use.[3]
The Police Interceptor engine calibration comprises a slightly higher idle speed (by approximately 40 rpm) and minor changes in the emissions settings. The computer is tuned for more aggressive transmission shift points, and the transmission itself is built for firmer and harder shifts.
The 2006–present Police Interceptors equipped with a 3.55:1 rear axle ratio from the factory are electronically limited to 120 mph (193 km/h) due to the lower driveline-critical vehicle speed, while the Police Interceptors equipped with a 3.27:1 rear axle ratio have generally been limited to approximately 135 mph (217 km/h). This compares to 110 mph (177 km/h) for the "civilian" model.[4]
Ford used an aluminum metal matrix composite driveshaft for the 1993–2005 Police Interceptors as a measure to allow safe operation at over 150 mph (241 km/h), but it was more expensive than the regular aluminum driveshafts. Ford reintroduced the 3.55:1 rear axle ratio in the 2006 model year Police Interceptors, and set the speed limiter at 120 mph (193 km/h) to reduce the risk of driveline failure.
Police Interceptors also have a reinforced frame and body mounts, an aluminum drive shaft (aluminum metal matrix composite for the 1999–early 2001 model years), and an optional limited slip rear differential.

Yesterday, I bought some spray paint from Walmart 1.08. I realized that the paint is a different shade then the first paint I bought. Its slightly grey-er then the first one. Now I have to buy more of the other kind! 3.99 for a can, but its well worth it.

I do got recent pictures, I'm taking pictures as I go, just need to find my card, so I can upload them. The pictures are stuck on my phone.

But after a dinner at Lone Star Steak House, I thought of a GREAT plan. Lay down a base coat with the cheap stuff, then put a finishing job with the good stuff so I don't have to spend soo much. If you saw the first door I started on, you would be like "WOW!, Thats like a shop!"

Okay well today I completed the driver side of the car. Now I have to line up the bumpers, truck, and hood. So basically I bought a ghetto car, that needs work.
