Building a Lincoln MKT Premiere Limousine

Posted on June 7, 2013 by

The full feature goes through the process of stretching a Lincoln MKT Town Car 120 inches to become a Lincoln MKT limousine. The video gives a detailed look into every step involved, from the cutting and stretching to the reupholstering and wiring.

Video picks of the month like this one will be the theme of my new column for this page. My goal is to choose videos that provide helpful information to you and your business. I will create a QR code on this page so you can go directly to the featured videos and watch them. I encourage you to leave a comment and tell us what you think. The stretch process takes 45 days and requires 4,000 ft. of additional wiring and 800 lbs. of extra steel. COO Todd Boyer walks the camera through each step along the way.


Highlights

Cutting 7:47

  • The cut process takes around
  • 16 hours to complete.
  • Ford provides the exact specs to be followed for the cut processs
  • For the cut to succeed, the car must remain locked in position.

Stretching 10:30

  • Along with the frame and chassis, all fuel, breaks, exhaust, heating, and air conditioning lines need to be lengthened.
  • The side panels are constructed of lightweight aluminum and are bolted on as opposed to welded, so if they happen to get damaged they can easily be removed for repairs or replacing.

Finishing 16:33

  • LCW adds a secondary battery in the interior of the vehicle to give them a closer source of power for all the lighting and additional components that go inside the car.
  • Heat and noise reducing insulation is installed.
  • An extra-long paint booth is used to hand paint the extension paneling.
