Well It is about time I started one for this car. And the car has already cost me blood. I cut my finger/hand with the grinder. My room mate Sarah was there and saw my hand and said I definitely need to go to the ER. Now she didn't tell me at the time. But she told me after that she could see the tendon. The Doc said I just missed it. Pretty darn lucky. I was cutting a bracket off as I was doing an LED light install in my bumper. I installed 4 inch LED's that are frenched into the bumper. The stock grill and bumper are being used as I like them better than what was on it when I bought it. Here are some pics. The first is the before pic. A video will be posted at the bottom.

Now Let me tell you a little more about the car. It is a 1996 Cadillac Hearse made by Federal and the model is The Heritage. It is fully loaded and has full power leather seats on both sides. It has an LT-1 that has been re-prom'd and has the Hooker Competition header with dual cats. It has a complete AutoMeter Phantom gauge cluster in the dash. It has stock the 14 bolt 9.5 rearend in it. The rear gear is now a Grizzly 4.10 unit with an Eaton Tru Trac diff. It also has UMI upper and lower control arms in the rear. It will have 17X9.5 wheels with BFG G-Force Sports 275/40-17 tires. I will be lowering it but how much I am not sure yet. I have to see if my Eibachs will work and if so how much they drop it. The car will also get some custom body work besides the cowl hood and bumper mods, when it starts getting warmer.

Ok time for an update. I have done a few more things to the front end to clean it up but it still needs lots of work. Also have the wheels and tires for it but the tires aren't mounted on the wheels yet. Hope to get that done this week. I have also gotten Blue LED's for the dash which looks rather cool if you ask me. I am very pleased with that. I also put in the front Eibach springs from my old Custom Cruiser. Dropped the nose down where I want. Hope to get the rear springs in this week too. I just hope all the extra weight doesn't make it sag in the rear. Here are some pics.

They are made by JNC and are 17X9.5 and I think the offset is 32.

I have some new pics with the new wheels and tires on. Slight rub on the right rear but that should be fixed Saturday. They are 17X9.5 JNC's with 275/40-17 BFG G-Force Sports Comp2's

Tiny update. I finally got a new 15 inch steering wheel to replace the 13 inch version that was on the car. What a difference. It steers and turns better. It was way over sensitive with the other one on it. I can now see all my gauges. Well except the fuel gauge which is obscured by the wiper/turn signal stalk and tilt mechanism. I also hit up the 2 best U Pull-it yards around and not a Fleetwood to be found. So I will have to look elsewhere for front fenders.

Well I got some things done. The car has new fenders and the blinker block off panels are done better and sealed off better. There are also little LEDs for side marker and blinkers. I also sealed up the holes in the rear quarters and rattle canned the car satin black so it is all one color.
