Does anyone know where would be the best place to drill the firewall for power connection? It seems that there is something mounted on every square inch. I know it can be done. Too many of these were police cars with vhf & uhf police band radios.

You'll get an answer from Mark, K5LXP, as he has installed transceivers in his CV.

The last one I did, I used the extra teat on the main harness. I can't say it is there on every model year.

My marquis had an empty body plug around the upper edge of the carpet on the passenger side.  Poked through it with a screwdriver then ran the wire up the wheel well, then inside existing loom to the high current lug on the distribution box just aft of the battery.  Ground side an inch or so away from where the battery ground terminated on the fender.

Thanks  Mark. I'll look for it. The Mercury and the Ford are built on the same body so it should be there on mine too. I'm not too agile so my range of motion is limited and I did not see it on my first inspection. I have a double fuse block ordered so I can fuse the hot and ground. Some 10ga. Zip cord will get me powered up. Thanks again.
