most of the factory LS stuff has the compressor down low. however, i think some of the vans and larger trucks had a different setup. help me out here squeeezer.

i did find this... http://www.holley.com/20-131.asp. only thing i dont like about that is the compressor you have to use. i prefer the Sanden compressors that Vintage Air uses. of course, theres always the custom bracket option. if you could figure out dimensions and what compressor youre using, we could cut out some pieces on the plasma table. when i get to the car show saturday, ill take some pictures of the 59 Vette. it has a simple ac bracket setup that wouldnt be too hard to duplicate.

I'll bet that black finish with all of those white dots painted on it was hard to apply Laughing !!!

Looks fantastic. Is your mirror cut to be a Chevy Bow Tie with a nice red painted frame? Or is it just notched for the wheels?

got some finished pics of the Lincoln. i built the air intake, battery tray & hold down. installed the engine/trans/9"diff, wiring and some other small stuff.













i did, later on, build a cover for those ugly wires in the rt rear engine compartment. i didnt take pics of that though. the interior is awesome. im still looking for those pics Confused .

VERY cool stuff. Personally I can never understand why somebody would want an engine cover - I absolutely love mechanical stuff. To me it takes more talent to make everything neat, tidy and functional instead of covering it up. However you did make a sleek looking cover I just like the Lincoln engine better. Great job and keep showing off Laughing . Clay

I don't know if I am remembering this correctlyor not, but shouldn't there be a light blue Ford Falcon Rnachero that goes with that Lincoln?

the engine cover actually started with the Vette at Autorama. when we took it to show the first time, it didnt have a cover. we lost points and missed out on some awards. the judges specifically told us that it needed a cover to hide the ugly injectors and intake. so, i made a cover. the owner of the Belair saw the Vette and wanted a cover for his LS. another customer saw the cover on the Belair and i had to make one for his Camaro.......





Dave, ya lost me Confused

The James Bond movie had Mr Goldfinger getting PO'd at one of his associates; so he shot him in the middle of their meeting for disagreeing with him. He then had his minions load his body into the trunk of your Lincoln, which was followed by Odd-Job the big Hawaiian Olympic wrestler. They drove the car to the scrap yard and it was crushed into a cube. The cube placed in the back of a Ranchero that had no difficulty taking the weight of a full size Lincoln and driving the cube back to Goldfinger's evil lair to be melted down in his furnace he used to smuggle gold around the world by casting it into Rolls Royce body parts for his Silver Phaeton coach.

Covers do make points I would just rather see somebodies skill at bending tubing to make a fuel line, homemade headers, custom plug wire mounts or how they can make wiring disappear. Don't get me wrong it does take talent making the cover it just doesn't have a story to tell so to speak. Been a long time since I've seen Goldfinger. I used to really like the Bond flicks. Clay
