Cool. Too bad you can't get a good looking Ford emblem on a Marauder grille, but the badgeless grille is going to look sweet.




Agreed. A Ford emblem would be sweet. Try it!


And nice job, btw!

White Falcon LS ... Slap on a Marauder rear bumper and a Mercury badge on the rear.



But, but, but ... The rear bumper fascia has that Marauder script molded into it; besides, IMO the Crown Victoria's is sleeker looking.

And as for the Mercury emblem .....

Along this line, one of the VERY few things I don't like about my CV is no cornering lights... Are those cornering lights I see?

You see correctly. SOP Marauder.

*Some of us have even installed 'em in our stock CV fender openings.

Does it take any mods to make the corners work on a vic?

Yes -and- No (depending on the year of your vic).

How-To thread <<<<< -click-

Additional hints/tips .....

- Remove the headlights; makes it easier to see what you're doing and gives you more room.

- When trimming the rear tab (used for the CV corner light), remove the plastic insert and trim the metal tab so that there's ~1/8" of metal left on the forward edge. *Paint the bare edge with a dob of paint to prevent rust.
Bending the metal tab in slightly may be (?) necessary to get the Marauder corner light to fit flush with the fender in the rear. *It'll be trial-and-error.

- Once you've got the holes drilled in the header panel (it's fiberglass) for the 2 front mounting posts (Marauder corner light) on one side and everything fits hokey-dokey, take measurements of the hole placements and transfer that to the other side. *That way only one side is trial-and-error (and swiss cheese looking ... not to worry, it doesn't show).


BTW ... If you're serious about doing this mod', let me know and swing-by; have a set that I'm willing to sell and can hep.

It's $70 for just the turn signal unit. I had to have mine replaced on my Marauder due to a parking lot accident. It's not hard to install. It's two 11 mm bolts but they are a pain in the ass to get too. I suggest a good adjustable wrench and a good wratchet set.
