andrew..that looks too amazing for words. that thing looks downright stunning.

like i said, if this had been earlier, i would have gotten this before my car, which i paid $3k for anyways. it would have been well worth it, even with twice the miles, this thing is in amazing condition now.

I noticed it'* missing the rear drivers side door light.
Griss is missing a similar one on the drivers door. Are they difficult to source?

Andrew, dude, awesome job. That car looks immaculate compared to when you first got it. This thread has inspired me, and I think if I ever saw a junker SSEi, I would just have to consider picking it up and bringing it back to life after seeing how many possibilities there are with it.

That I'm well aware of. But I happen to know where I can get bonneville parts much easier than any other car without research, same for Grand Marquis lol. I'm just saying you kind of sparked a hidden interest in my mind. I've always restored my personal cars back to OEM looking, but that was for my own use. The car I have now required lots of little paint work, and I STILL haven't gotten the chance to polish it.

I'd like to do it to make a few extra bucks here and there some day.
