I have been busy working on a lot of small things. Like bolting the motor to the K-member, weld the Tranny K-member and painting it with a lot of little odds and ends. I have the headers on and spark plugs in. I have both dip sticks in, water and fuel pump's are on. Next is vacuum lines and wiring. Should also have the carb on soon with all the linkage.
I did pick up a 2" set of gauges so I can start putting that all in as well. I need to order more goodies and hope the car will be running soon.

Ok, been busy. Today I found my stock drive shaft is actually 2" short....so I found one to correct that issue. Clean, new U joints, and paint should be just fine. I put the Carb and throttle linkage on. Did some vacuum lines and tighten some odds and ends up. Looking good...look totally cool. I also found a guy to do my exhaust....$450.00-$500.00 to do custom from the headers all the way back. 16"X 3" Stainless tips, X pipe, and free flow mufflers. I cant buy after market stuff and bolt, cut, clamp together for that cheap.

Swapped out the 200 six / C4 and put in a 400 h.p. 351w and Beefy C4. Also put in Flaming River manual rack & pinion, '98 Mustang GT front spindles ( with rotors and calipers) , '98 Mustang GT 8.8 with disc brakes and front / rear sway bars. I also have QA1 K-member, coil over struts, and caster / camber plates. The wheels I have are '05 Mustang and the paint is all me....

Update 4/11/10

Ok, here's what I have been up too.

I had to get a different drive shaft, one about 2" longer. I put my ends and some extreme heavy duty u-joints in. Cleaned it up and some paint.



Here's look at the bottom side...not the best picture but I have been caught laying on my back just gazing at its beauty from down here time to time !!



Here's how the engine is looking , this is just a temporary air cleaner. I think the diameter might be right....but it needs to sit a lot lower. I am down to electrical and cooling for the most part. Been a lot of cleaning parts and painting...time consuming !!



Thats it for now......stay tuned !
