Recommended Posts

WOW! I've been away for a while and lost track of many of the ongoing builds. The progress on your car is outstanding. This is going to be a badass ride!

Yes Daniel, I love your car and I'm lookin forward to seeing some progress. I enjoy seeing progress on all these cars. Same happens to us all it seams, except turtle, that guys in a jog. Like the energizer bunny,  I've been diverted from mine for a few weeks with a trip to visit mom & dad and then got back and wanted to knock out a deck on the side of the house I've been promising my wife for 2 years, lol I'm planning to get back on mine next Monday. Great to hear from ya.

 

Sounds like we are in the same boat, I have just made our living room because my girlfriend wanted it for a couple of weekends ago! There are allways something to take care of and with two kids in the house there are something to do all the time ::D really hope to get back soon!

 

My plan right now are to get the car sandblasted, then primed every where. Then I will install every new suspension parts and brake parts and put the new wheels and tires on to see how everything fits before I make more modifications. I am thinking about that I maybe want to make some different fender flares, so I need the car on the ground to make that :)

 

Great to hear from you as well !  ::thumb::

Not any progress on my own car, right now I am taking a lot of side jobs to get some money for my engine project! But will be back soon, my dad does need some help with his 1973 Mach 1 and it will be ready soon for paint, so my plan is to get his car painted so it just needs to be assembled. Then we will have some more time together to make all these modifications on mine and have more space in the garage :D

 

Here's a few shots of what I painted yesterday, it's a Mazda 6 with a 3 layer pearl effect color, very fun to paint :)

Just a little update here from Denmark and from the enginebuilder Ville in Finland. All the parts has arrived at his place, the rotating parts are being balanced today and the block are ready to be assembled. It should be ready in about a month. I'm so excited! :D

The body are still waiting in the rotesserie, found some more sheet metal in the trunk that needs to be replaced. They have repaired the trunk floor with cutting out that area where the rust were and then added a complete new trunkfloor on top of that, then spot welded and fiberglass around that! It looks like shit and I dont want that in the bottom of the car when I have spent so many $$$ on new high end parts :D

Yes I hope that too Ray, I am allmost crying every time I look at it. In my mind the car are on the road!!! But I hope to get back soon. The engine should be ready in a month, so when it arrives then I can get it in the car together with the transmission for mock up! Then I can begin on detailing the engine compartment too and get that area finished also. I need to help my dad right now with his 73' mach 1 so he hopefully can join the road for summer :)

The Mazda turned out really nice!! :)

Not any crazy update from here, but I got the Viking shocks and Baer calipers painted the way I wanted them today. I chose to go with a very aggressive yellow color called spring yellow. :)

You're in good hands with Ville from Finland. He knows his SBF stuff as well as Ford FE and 429/460 stuff. SBF is his real expertise. You can see his restored 390 cid '66 GTA Fairlane, its on original import car from 1966. How much of hp are you looking for Daniel?

I'm glad to hear that and good to hear from you again! Ville is a good man amd he deffently sounds to know what he is working with! But it makes me even more sure about this when you tell me all that ::)

 

We are looking for 600 HP and 410cui, the engine are being built for bigger rpm levels than a normal performance engine would be. He will complete the build within two weeks, I'm so excited :D

600 hp, isn't that more than you're originally thinkin off? Not that is a bad thing though, nice to have more power - allways. It should be fun car with that hp level, if you can make it hook rightly it should fly to low 11s on quarter or in best case scenario to very high 10s. 11s should be available with some practice. 

 

Allways happy to see high hp Mustangs around, just remember to kick some chebby a$$ once she's up'n'running.

Oh boy. That's gonna rock! 0-100km in 4 seconds but Full to empty just as fast. Lol Hope you have better gas prices than we do in Canada.

Yes that is a lot more than I was thinking about in the first place. But after explaining to Ville about my ideas and goal with the car he would'nt agree to stay with 400-450hp, he said that with all the suspension and brake upgrades and with the big wheels and tires and all the body mods the car will have, then he said that that car will need some serious power to match the rest of it ::D I agreed with Ville and now he is building a crazy smallblock Windsor for it, I cant wait to try it the first time, it is going to be so insane!

 

I need to go to the track someday when it's finished and just burn down some rubber at every cruise and carshow  lollerz  Would be fun to see what times I can run in a pass in that car when that time will come :)

How much is it for gas in Canada? We are paying something like 1.6$ for an liter here in Denmark, and when it's summer it's much more because of all the turists are comming on vacation here!! But yeah I think it will rock too my friend, I hope that the suspension are strong enought to bring the power down to the ground :)

Wow. We pay 1.10/ lit. and just my 400hp engine goes through fuel like it's free. Expensive but worth it. A friend once told me when your running BIG horsepower, your biggest expense isn't the motor..,it's in the tank. I tod him if the torque is so strong that it pulls my face into a smile....ITS WORTH IT!!!

So it's allmost the same prices like here in Denmark, damn! That's the worst part with the fuel, I hope that the manual transmission just will give me a little bit fuel economy LOL ::D I will agree with you, it's all about the smile you will have every time you push that pedal, I cant wait to get that feeling! I really hope that I can bring the car to some road races here in Denmark when it's finished :)

Thanks, great to hear that people like my work. The plan is to change the taillights so they are getting bigger, it fits the big body better I think, they will work and look like the 2015 Mustang when they are done :)
