this is a 98 town car im doing for a customer of mine this is the first ride i remember to grab the camera on so here is some pics :biggrin:

im going to use gm uppers on this one i dont really like the look of stock towncar arms

just enough lean to it



i had some arms that where extended 1 1/4'' but the owner would have been going through tires



i ran the hoses through the back seat

also found some groumets that worked out perfect


got the holes cut for the rack


the starting of the rack




and the tie down

i put some on that where extended 1 1/4'' but they looked like 2 1/2'' and the stock gm arms have a little lean to them but i may go a 1/2 extended im going to fit a wire wheel on and also talk to the owner. are you thinking about using caddy arms on yours?
