POTM May 2020 - Psxmoe's 2006 Crown Victoria

For consideration, a 2006 CVPI with almost 77k miles i instantly fell in love with and bought in 2015 with 67K miles. Came with Tinted window's, Flowmaster Exhuast and New BF-Goodrich COMP-2 AS Tires.

Mostly stock because i spend more money in maintenance items than mods and i'm a mostly stock guy.

All fluids and filters have been changed the first year i got it, New brake hoses. New Alternator, Drive belt/Pulleys/Tensioner

Going to be pulled into the garage today or tomorrow for a intake replacement, Valve covers, coolant flush (it's been 5 years) and other repairs/cleaning.

LED CHMSL/Backup lights, LED Interior Lights. Covercraft Velour Dashmat to go with the Velour Interior. Floor mats all around. Pioneer Single DIN with Bluetooth, Walmart Amp and 2x Rockford Fosgate 12" Subs.

- When I first met The 5-O, she had about 1,5xx idle hours. Almost four years later there are 1,8xx idle hours.
- Standard police package, 3.27s in the rear, lights and antennas on the roof and trunk, custom paint from the factory for the TEXAS Highway Patrol (THP).
Modifications made:
- Replaced front windshield.
- Complete re-spray of the entire car, to include the door jambs and inner portion of the doors.
- Removal of existing window tinting, installation of newer style tint (purportedly).
- Installation of window deflectors all 'round. First vehicle I've owned with that. Didn't how how we'd like it but as it turns out we very much do!
- Changed all fluids immediately after purchase: oil, transmission, diff, wiper, brake, power steering, coolant.
- New rotors and pads all 'round.
- New plugs all 'round.
- Consistent oil changes, tranny fluid still looks good. 'Prolly due for a change to err on the side of caution.
- New battery a couple of months later.
- New fuel pump.
- Replaced air filter that fall. Did the fuel filter while I was at it.
- Upgraded the wheels to 01-02 LX Sport, not knowing at the time that there was a difference. A local wheel shop (all they do is wheels) told me "there was only one." Uh no, there were two. laugh
- New tires all around to go on the 01-02 wheels.
- Sold those wheels and bought a set of 03+ LX Sport wheels from a fellow CVNer. Swapped the still-like-new tires from the 01-02s, naturally, and put them on the 03+s. Still running the 03+ wheels and tires today. Rotation every 5k miles.
- Purchased a "lifetime" alignment and had the first installment thereof done now that the "permanent" wheels were installed. Used it twice since. Most recent was March 2020.
- Replaced the front sway bar bushings, drop links and front/rear shocks
- Replaced the front seats with 2011 versions, as I preferred the larger headrests. For whatever reason. Don't know why, can't explain. Just do. And seeing as those existed that year only, I bought a second set of 2011 seats. And traded the original hubcaps for a third pair of 2011 headrests. Yeah. I did that. laugh
- Rampage center console
- Due to parking lot rash, replaced the pax side mirror twice. The first repair/replacement can be seen here:
First pax side mirror replacement
Second time is here:
And another
- Have slowly been acquiring backup parts for The Five-O over many salvage yard runs. We have spare doors, spare mirrors, spare fenders, spare hood, spare trunk, engine parts, tranny parts, too-many hardware bits, etc. In addition, we now have a spare set of steelies. And those spare seats and headrests, lest I forget.
- New rear bumper cover after more parking lot rash.
- New driver's side A pillar trim to replace the original one that still had its spotlight hole.
- New B pillar trim for both sides to replace the existing ones that had been scratched up quite a bit from her law enforcement days
- Replaced the gauge cluster bezel (gonna need to re-do this at some point)
- New spare tire cover
