not yet, i think we're about 65% done? the biggy(right quater) is getting done this week, and rear tail light panel. and then small holes to fill here and there. i decided just to go with new doors, hoods, and fenders. it was just more economical to get new parts rather than trying to repair the old ones.

i know its a little late, but do 5.0's not have an oil slinger infront of the lower timing chain sproket? i cant see one in the 3rd engine picture. or are those just for engines with mechanical fuel pumps?

its the grab a trak kit from mustangs plus
http://www.mustangsplus.com/xcart/pr...at=2080&page=1

with a reverse eye, 5leaf set up on the back, and that kit drops the front 1" but it wasnt going to be enough for the wheels/look and stuff im going for so we did a full coil chop on the front and an addition of an essentric eliminator. ya im pretty worried about the pan, but those spring are pretty stiff compared to stock. but we'll see what happens when it comes to engine dropping in time.

ya that is the kit I was looking at too but with the 540 springs. How smooth did it go in?

These are 2 highly recommended suspension mods that are pretty good bang for the buck:

That looks pretty good. What kind of "performance" do the new control arms bring? I dont need the steering rebuild, but I got my eye on that suspension kit for 479. How much did it come to after tax shipping and duty?

Did you do the shelby drop? Its what shelby did to the gt350s to give it negative camber, apparently increasing the handling quite signifigantly, and its free which is a pretty good deal lol.

Also for what its worth, I have read that no bigger than a 1" front sway bar and no rear bar is ideal or the car is too 'tight' and just slides instead of letting the suspension compress and keep the tires planted. Looks good man, definetely motivating me. Im stuck on a fucked clutch. Dropped the trans twice now and something is still wrong. Going to get a new kit and hope its just defective

I was thinking that but its a little bit more work than I want to do right now. I havent read up on it at all, and I know there is kits out there but I just want to drive the damn thing. There is a good deal in the for sale section too, but then I need a new driveshaft as well.

Fantastic job done so far. You are lucky that car was very straight. I wish I was so lucky on my 66 I'm building.

Default Body Finally done

ok, so here are some last pictures of the bodywork being done on the rear, new tail light panel, trunk floor patched up, new quater, etc. Proud to say shes As much rust free as i can get her without completely ripping apart everrrrry peice of the car, but shes been 90% taken apart, so im pretty satisfied. I dont think anyone can really say !00% rust free, And i wont even say it and i've gone above and beyond what most would have done. Shes already in the bodyshop getting the inners done for now, hopefully it all goes quick now.
