Mark VIII - to - Thunderbird Interior SWAP Kit

Unfortunately, my wife's project car has hit the point where we don't want to mess with restoring it now.

The car is a 93 SC and has numerous problems - we've hung onto it because of sentimental reasons, but hadn't been diligent in its restoration in the past couple of years. I will probably start parting out the whole car at some point, but the big thing I wanted to throw out there was the black 93 Mark VIII dash that had been completely rewired to plug-n-play into a 93 SC body harness. For those that don't know, I rewired and helped install David Clark's MK8 dash and helped with Jeff Bratton's as well - all splices were meticulously soldered / heat shrunk and everything that can be tested in the driveway works. I started and moved the car this past weekend (and blew a brake line...).

If someone has a 93 Auto SC, the dash is ready to go - it may be compatible with other years or only require minor tweaks. I also have the doors that have been modified to accept the MK8 door panels.

It's not a mod for the faint of heart, but the bulk of the work is done. I spent over 40hours on the dash alone...probably another 20 on other parts. I don't usually toot my own horn, but I feel like I have done this work right, being that I am an electrical engineer as my profession.

I don't want to mess with shipping this stuff, but if anyone is interested in this "kit" - any or all parts of it, let me know. We would probably consider selling the whole car too, which is restorable, but in rough shape.

Anyway...I'm mainly seeing if there is interest at this point.

All MK8 parts are from a 1993 model and are black in color:

dash & all parts (rewired/mod'ed for 93 SC) - in great shape
door panels - in good shape
carpet (clean, but a little faded)
front seats (decent shape)
center console has been diassembled - I was planning to "splice" it into the SC console, but didn't get that far

If you have a serious interest, I'll PM you my cell number. I'll take pictures at some point...our 2nd baby is due this week though and we just recently moved, so no promises that the picture posting will be expedient!

I'm not setting a price at this point, because it really depends on what you want included, how you will pick it up, etc.
