    Itching to mess with a Ford Freestyle

    suggestions or referrals?

    The wagon gets absolutely no respect on the road and Im itching to mess with it.... and hopefully change that.

    I've brainstormed some ideas and its likely impossible but with the creative genius Ive come to know around these parts maybe it can be done. Already I have started to black it out (including black wheels) and a 'backoff' brake light is in the works... but it needs more...

    First on the list is to get some form of a push bar assembly for the front bumper, police style no bling. But I cannot find anything prefab on the interwebs. Does anyone know where I could find takeoffs or similar items to use a start? OR Shops where I can get the fab-work done?



    Second... thinking KIT style scanning LED units I can use to indicate that YES I AM FKN TURNING THIS WAY... 'cause it seems being in the turn lane with regular indicator flashing isnt sufficient (I miss amber indicators). Again having a hard time finding these. Ive found the under tailgate strips but now I need find scanning ones...

    Selling the vehicle and begging for my XJ back is not an option.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is it?

    Be cool if the xc70 infect is the same platform as this wagon... Would make things mucho easier.

    So maybe s80 is a good start. I recall the local police dept had a late 90s Volvo... But I think it's older. Looking at the xc70/v70 front clip looks very promising. Gotta find one to park next to and compare. All the volvos get fun toys maybe I should have gone that route.
