Crown Victoria swap kit from Edward Ritchey

Has anyone used the kit from Edward Ritchey to swap the Crown Victoria front clip on to their 53-56 F100.

I've got one but it's not installed. Didn't come with instructions
Looks to be complete but sure wish I knew where to drill the holes for the bolts to go through the frame

Nope but measure first. Still to wide for our trucks. Wheel choices severely limited. Nothing with any offset of any kind..

You have to use mustang wheels or a wheel with the same offset.

He installed mine in my 56. Nice setup. He is a booger welder however.

Can you give us some measurements of where your bolts go thru? Did he center your wheels on the wheel wells?

I posted photos on my album. The front end was centered to the wheel well, I believe 1 !/2" forward. I will get the bolt measurement when I get back to my shop.

thanks again.I got the kit info and have been looking everywhere for measurements,I bought a frame that already had the front suspension removed so I am looking for the distance of the bolt holes from the front edge of a bare frame.

I've been asking for the measurements as well. I've got the kit, the CV crossmember but I'm too chicken to just start drilling.
Someone please help a couple of fellow FTErs out with some measurements. Need to know if you centered the tire on the wheel well or not too!
