    thanks!

     

    well all this is a few years ago.. the car has sat for a while collecting dust. just started working on it some 3 months ago and finished it, the car has just been tested for road worthiness and found to be in perfect working order..so i can enjoy it again :D

     

    here it is completed

    @Tnfastbk,

     

    you mean the silvery thing with 2 hoses on it? thats the fuelpressure regulator..

  2. :blush: thanks guys.. its a learning process for me as well..:D

     

    I like those seats! Take much fabricating.

     

    thanks!, not at all, i got the matching sliding rails for them an got some 8mm (hmm, thats almost 3/8"thick) thick flatbar and made the frame's

     

    i searched for it, but i don't have pictures of them sorry..

     

    but thanks again guys! i appreciate it..:cool:

  3. thanks !!

     

    Looks great Ben! Something I wished I had done! I ordered the new printed circuit after debating new guages. I particularly like the tach I was planning on removing the stock idiot lights as I installed a set of guages and putting the tach there. Keep up the good work.

     

    i was debating myself on that at the time, i had a clock originally in it, the clock was not functioning, the mechanics inside were gummed up, and no moving parts anymore, the circuit was fried as well, so it was an easy decision..

  4. thanks man :D

     

    the engine is a 351C

    4-bolt block filled with a Boss crank and rods, it has trw forged pistons giving it a 10.2-1 cr, the heads are also Boss units with manley valve's comp springs and Manley 1.73 roller rockers, heads are skimmed extra for more cr. combustion chambers are now only 62cc's

     

    Cam is from crane the F238, Cam has .554 lift intake. .577 exhaust. Duration @ .050 is 238 intake 248 exhaust so its fairly mild,but it has a nice idle..

     

    intake is a edelbrock torker II with a 1" wilson tapered 4-hole spacer and a custom made QFT-carb.

     

    all the fasteners are from ARP

     

    headers are from FPA

     

    here's a small movie of it, running again after 3 years..

     

    transmission is a wide ratio 4-speed from a 67 Mustang coupled to a 9" with a equa locker (which has seen the end of its life after only 1000miles since the rebuild. ) and 3.89 gearing, i need to update the locker to a trac-lok or even get an detroit locker..


    and the interior

     

    Cobra seats, rear seats are deleted , i needed some music.. and custom console, made it myself.

    dont have good picture of it finished other than the above pictures,.. i will make some...

     

    this car also has its roof replaced, the humidity and the vinyl roof together wasn't a good combination

    all small holes..

    30072009080.jpg

     

    and this section i cut out after a year i had the car.it had a 2" hole in it. and a few other smaller holes..

    30072009079.jpg

     

    i then placed some sheet metal underneath it, tacked it in place , filled it with bodyfiller, and drove it like that for 11 years..

     

    in the mean time i found a replacement roof, this car was involved in a crash and was beyond repair obviously. so i had cut of the roof, and used it for my car..

     

    out with the old

    28102009173.jpg

     

    the only thing was that the car had laid on its roof, luckily my buddy is magician with bodywork

     

    he worked out all the dents

    then onto the car

    07112009183.jpg

     

    and thats about it about the car.. now you guys know everything about it.. :D

  6. my first car was a Citroen 2cv6... driving in the winter with a blanket over yourself to keep warm :D..

     

    my first Mustang was a 1972 Grande which i still have almost 14 years later.

    the second Mustang was a 1988 Mustang LX converted to the 4-eye look, i NEVER should have sold that thing,.. it had some engine work done, man that thing was fast...
