Sounds very cool!!

I saw a recent episode of Hot Rod Garage where they actually did a body swap, it's up on YouTube and worth a watch.

Set the cab on the crown vic the cab has some clearance issues the cab braces and these rear cab flaps. I cut the f100 cab mounts from the f100 frame. And welded them to the crown vic frame. I used the crown vic mount pads but had to drill the f100 holes out to 40mm with a step bit.

I seen a side mirror idea I wanted to try. I will need to shorten the side mirror poles. I bought a new roll pan. The pan is plain steel and I needed it to match the truck. I looked for a way to rust metal quickly. First step was to clean the metal and sand the area I planed to paint. I ripped blue shop paper towel to make a uneven pattern. Then primed and painted the bare metal. I gave the bare metal a vinegar and salt bath for a few hours. I let the vinegar air dry then sprayed the metal with hydrogen peroxide about 3 times a day for a few days. I then put the roll pan in direct sun and ran this picture is after 3 weeks. The original hood has rotten hood mounts. I found a damaged hood at a junk yard that had good mounts.

Yesterday I started lowering the bed into place. I set the cab at a height I liked the mouldings are 36 inches from the bottom to the ground. I had a couple problems with the bed. First I wanted to keep the bed braces but the bed will not go any lower the 38 inches with them in place. I removed the braces and the front of the bed would lower below the 36 inches I was shooting for, but the rear of the bed hit the frame and will not go lower then 37 inches. I remove a few more inches from the frame rails. I sat the bed down again and it dropped to 36 3/4 inches. I'm going to have to remove the top of the frame rail to get it and lower because the fender brace is hitting and I'm not cutting it. I'm going to have to roll the fender lips there is 1/4 inch of clearance from the rear tires.

The bed still needs to be lowered in the rear and I'm going to build some bed mounts to bolt the bed to the frame.
