  1. Did some more disassembly getting ready for sheetmetal work.
  2. Interesting and informative info. Eaton priced me a set of Improved handling leafs that will lower the rear approximately 1” for $429.99 set. I would pro drive there and take a mini vacation since it relatively close. Maier leafs with shipping puts me about 720.00 to the door. So those two are comparatively priced. Does anyone know or have used Street or Tracks leafs? Prices are about 320.00 a set.
  3. Building a 408 Clevor and tremec. What accessory drive system did you use?
  4. With the risers out how much headroom does that allow. I have a set of mint 2012 gt/CSU seats I’ll be trying to use
  5. Man that looks like a ton of work, but awesome once it’s done.
  6. I’m planning for the same leafs, coils, and bilsteins all around. Hoping to eventually get his full setup later on. How’s the ride with them?
  7. The engine and trans are from a previous project decided to use for this one. It’s rotated every few weeks and in a heated area. Looking to change it up a bit fo4 this build so it will probably be coming apart soon.
  8. Yes, before it goes on a rotisserie it’s going to the frame machine first to be checked over. Buddy that’s doin the body and paint work runs a body shop that mainly works on high end cars like Jag, land rovers- Porsche etc. Builds quality Restos on the side. Next out will be the heater box to see exactly what’s there.
  9. Been awhile since any updates, not much has gotten done but a lot of figuring out exactly what to do. Shouldn’t be much longer before it’s on the rotisserie. Overall it’s in descent shape requiring some floorpan work, two pinholes in trunk around fuel filler, and a few dings and panel alignment. Cowl area so far looks to be in good shape. Finally decided on paint and striping colors, wheels and suspension are down to a couple options. Brakes will be 2004 cobras using mustang Steve brackets front and rear. Engine is a dilemma right now as to swapping heads or not.
  10. Up in the air on my engine combo. It’s a 408w/tremec combo currently sitting in the car for test fitting. Yes a Victor 5.8 efi intake will clear the ram air hood. All this was from a previous project that was sold to start this one. The more I look at it I’m just not really liking it. My dad had the short block built years back by Keith Craft to run 4v CJ heads making the Clevor setup that he ran in his drag car. Since then I had the pistons modified to accept steel darts, converted to a roller Comp cams xfi-236hr-14 that’s 236/248@.050 and .579 lift. Has a 114 lobe because it was originally going in my 95 gt for tuning reasons. Now that I see CVF makes accessory brackets for a Clevor, and since the 408 originally had 4v heads, and there are intake options, why not swap it back. I think headers may be the only other hurdle to overcome.
  11. Most definitely not sandblasting the body. Would like to the underside and engine compartment only but may just super sand and clean. Exterior will be sanded only or with a da. Underside will be easier accessed and an easier job on a rotisserie. Guess may have to bite the bullet and buy one. ?
  12. So beginning the tear down and after stripping the interior out I find that parts of the floor needs replacing and a few spots in the trunk need repairing. Dad had new Oem inner and outer qtrs, tailight panel, rear valance, fenders and Mach 1 hood installed in the late 80’s but need some tweaking and attention. Curious as to what/how others have done to clean the underside using a rotisserie or diy structures. See several ideas on the web just hate to buy a rotisserie for a one time use. The plan is to totally replace/clean whatever needs to be underneath then paint. img host
  13. Swapping in the 408w and tremec to start fitting up headers, intake, and accessories.
  14. What intake is that? Is it backwards in the first picture?
