Hay Kid,
Coming along nicely. So switching from the original motor to the 32v 4.6 with fuel injection, WOW, major change there, I think those motors are rated at 400hp stock. Curios on how you are going to seal the bottom of the cab? I sure can tell you what doesn't work, LOL. I did the same thing to my jeep on cleaning and prepping. Believe it or not, my jeep was solid and little rust when I got it. Did all the body work also. Now 15 years later it all rusted out, but then again it's a daily driver even in the winter time. I did my wife's car also when she got it almost 10 years ago, using a different method on rust proofing. Here car is holding up pretty good. I usually run my vehicles till I can't and are ready for the scrap yard. I hauled away 2 cars to the scrap yard in my jeep by cutting them up, LOL.

Well anywho... On my jeep after I prepped I used roofing tar over the paint, didn't work too good. Then I tried that spray on bed liner from a rattle can, that crap don't work too good. At that point I'm cutting out the floor for fresh metal and used the paint on bed liner, didn't work too good either. So I sand blasted the metal, that sucked, and used the paint on bed liner on the raw metal. The sand blasting gave it something to grab good, worked longer then I expected but it rusted through and came off. My wife's car on the other hand, is still solid underneath with the coating still on. On her car, I kept it simple since it was rust free when she got it. I used an SOS pad to clean the underneath, the the paint on bed liner. No rust holes or spots on the floor pans with rust. I'm thinking that a real good primer/sealer will do the trick with the enamel paint, then the paint on bed liner. I'll be doing that to my next jeep I build up. It's the gold one in my tank vids, that will replace my current one. I'm thinking an epoxy marine paint for the primer or maybe an aircraft epoxy paint. Well hope it helps.
Rated at 280hp, looking for 300hp. Using 3m seam sealer. then bedline firewall/under the cab and under the bed and innerfenders.

Wow havent checked in on this in a while. Loved seeing the IRS and More importantly the Mark8 engine. Im a huge fan of those motors. I actually convinced a buddy to buy a whole Mark8 so we could pull the motor and put it in his Original Bronco with a zf5. Who are you having do your harness?

Hopefully dieting it myself, have the entire harness. It is pre PATS system so it's rather "easy" if you do it right. I have a entire wiring schematic for a mark 8, I think it's in the fordification thread.

Looks pretty cool with the patina and amber. People just using stock crown vic wheels or dodge spare rims and moving the center section outwords. I plan on running 20s, just to a point where it tucks rim i think.

IMO the early gen ones were butt ugly but man what a good drivetrain under them.

When you hear someone talk down a 32v 4.6, just know they dont know what they are talking about Razz
