First off, thank you for looking! I'm going to keep it simple and update the posts as the progress goes along. Thanks All!

What are the goals of the build?
-My goal for this car is to turn it into a multi-purpose daily driver. My idea was when I picked this car up that I'd be making it into a poorman's Cadillac CTS-V. 4 Door V8 Sedan that looks decent and handles well. But all while maintaining it's street comfortability.

Bodywork and Fresh Paint Completed!

-Received the car back from Paint. Kept the black body and white roof for nostalgia purposes!

==04/06/18==
Setina Prisoner Partition Mounted & Installed!

Image

-Found this item on Craigslist for free so we couldn't pass it up! This will eventually be made into a full blown 4 point roll bar for track use!

==04/14/18==
S550 Recaro Seats Installed!

-We took the seats out of our 2016 Ecoboost mustang and threw them into the Crown Victoria with some Planted Seat Brackets. These things are 1000x better than the factory crown victoria seats and I'm super happy to have a quality set of seats in the new daily.

==04/15/18==
Baseline Lap Time at Willow Springs International Raceway has been set! 01:46.5

Image

-Bonestock aside from the Recaro Seats we added, we decided now would be a fantastic time to set a baseline at WSIR. At the end of this build we will head back to re-set that lap time and see just how much of an improvement we can make with a police interceptor!

==04/21/18==
Cruise Control Steering Wheel Installed

Image
Image

-The CVPI does not come with cruise control buttons on the wheel and after having driven all the way to WSIR and back and soon to be doing it to Chuckwalla... the desperation for cruise became real! We picked up a steering wheel off of ebay and will be having a friend at Ford reflash the ecu to activate the cruise control!
