Aite guys time to show you what all i have done to my baby. Ive had this car for 4 years and started with absolutely no knowledge on how to work on cars. i finally got settled down to where i can start working on her again. this is progress from the past 2 months:

removed trunk pans and tail light panel

had to cut floor pans in half to transport them

shock brace welded in place

trunk pan prepped to go in. i thought i needed a masters degree in puzzles to get this bad boy in there.

had to call a buddy and we managed to muscle them in

tail light panel ready for welding

so this is what the back of my mustang looked like

started cutting out passenger floor pan


torque box had surface rust but was good

bottom of firewall was rusted thru so i fabbed up a patch panel

patch panel compliments of driveshaft tunnel

passenger side floor pans welded in

started cutting out driver side floor pan


15 image limit hooray

got some progress done on the car

got some goodies in the mail for my 408w. eagle forged 4340 steel crank, Eagle forged H-beam rods, Mahle forged aluminum pistons flot top with 5cc valve reliefs


spent my cam and intake money. it was a great impulse buy tho


started stripping the car out to go get alkaline dipped and e-coated. i quickly ran out of space to put stuff


front end is completely stripped


stock suspension and steering


thats it for now. if anybody wants the steering and suspension shoot me a pm. i got other parts that im looking to get rid of.

started off by buying a set of 28x10.5 15rim mickey thompson drag slicks for $80 no use for them now but it will save me some $$$ later

some rust below the rear window


more rust thru by the firewall


and one more spot by the rear window


one more big improvement i made, i cleaned my garage out so i can now walk around both sides of the car!!

BTW, have you thought about what color you are going to have it painted?
Might be a ways off, but its always good to throw it out there :)
