So I replaced the 27 year old 65amp alt with a nice new 3G one from a Mercury Sable.....130A baby. I only did it for the extra power until I say the wiring for the old alt to the voltage reg.......WTF? How did this not catch on fire sooner?



Now we got the power for the TV and game systems oh yea also dual stereos front and back. Going to be sweet!


All you Virginia people know what this is! Yes it passed the state safety inspection.

So are you going to cut down a plastic garbage can for the ice tub or just throw ice in the trunk and let it auto-drain through the floor while mobile? Your car can then urinate on cars that are following. Also, that allows the "relief tube" liquids to become intermingled with the draining water and no one will be the wiser. Funnel and plastic tubing FTW. Get a bit fancy and make a little venturi and it always sucks air out of the vehicle. Keeps smell down. So I have heard.

Just talked to a friend that had a keg cooler he made out of an old fidge. He has a Co2 tank we can hook up so we will not need a tap just run lines to a tap. Yes sir!

Think I should get a gas tank door I can mount on side of car, open door pour a beer.

Other than VA and AL you cant have open alcohol in a Limo unless its a commercial vehicle that is in use for paying passengers. But Limo tinted windows are legal.

Can you guys set up a fake LLC rental company with the limo the only asset. Then hire it to drive you the whole way?

I think that is a great idea lars.

Also your passengers should pay in sexual favors.

I like the way you think. I'm sure insurance would have to change.

Update, after much research on what might leave us on the side of the road I found a common problem with 81-85 5.0 used in Lincolns. Other than is being a 30 year old ford that sat in the woods for 11 years.

They used a PLASTIC cam gear and it tends to explode sometimes with no warning. Nice. Now the gamble here is....in mid 85 they went back to a metal gear. So do I tear into motor that currently works fine to see if it needs to replace the plastic one or let it eat. After pricing the metal gear, chain, water pump, all gaskets for $48 shipped from Rock auto I tore it up.

Yep its plastic.


Going back together now...only broke 4 3 bolts and lost a few along the way not so bad.

Replaced the ugly 28 year old water pump with the squeek


Now that we know its good to go I went on with the Limo into Super Wagon Theme project. Found this beauty on CL



Let the Modding begin
Flippy floppies and no safety glasses always the way to go



Need bigger tools


Ready for it
