Update 17

Had to tweek the heater hose piping on the vintage air unit in order to make them fit straight up and down to fit in the engine bay and away from everything a little cut bend and weld

4 firewall grommets and that will finish that off was real worried the unit would not fit with the trans tunnel up and inch or so from factory but it went right in with plenty of clearance

Had to extend the top of the inner fendertomake it all square for the Brain Box Paneland smoothed it up

Starting to make some patterns for the trunk panels to clean it up and hide the Battery and a little hidden storage compartment

Perfect Place for a Battery and some hidden storage Fabbed this all up and welded it in should help strengthen the car up a little as well

 

Starting to do some finish work on the firewall but have to move the Master Cylinder over about an inch to clear the motor. First weld and strengthen the firewall by cutting out the old and making a new maounting plate and welding in. then modify the brake petal assembly under the dash

Had to make a new pin for the pedal

Got the motor back in to check clearance looks like it worked

While we were at it we checked clearance on the heater and A/C lines they look like they will work mow also

Modified this piece of square tubing to weld in for the removable top to the radiator support to strengthen it and make the motor go in and out easily with the trans connected

Welded the radiator support on and the top support and box tubing uprights to strengthen it all up

Cut the top out reinforced it and made it a bolt in so we can remove it

made a new grill frame and grille

also put the grille mesh in the brake scoops

Radiator and air box fitting good

Getting some bodywork done on the hood

Man these hoods suck right out of the box going to be a lot of work

L E D side marker / turn lights for front going in they will be behind the paint / clear and smooth with the body

 

Ok here are some more pics of the LED lights going in the rear quarter the rears will be red and the fronts amber they will be smooth with the paint and under the clear

final fit on the brake scoop

most of the bodywork done time for some primer

primered up and ready for some blockin

got some of the other parts and pieces in prime moving along

underside of hood and trunk in primer

got all the suspension pieces in chassis black too

 

Blocked and back in the booth for another coat

took it all apart to block and paint some of the pieces inside

back together somewhar wet sanded and cleaned up

a little clear over the sidemarkers

 

Didnt want to bore yall with the repriming and reblocking pics so got that finishe and now some Dynamat

Yall Know from other pics the bottom is Lizzard Skinned well we did the inside ot the trunk area also

Wet sanded cleaned up and taping it up to paint

Now the FUN BEGINS !!!!!!!!!

Update 13

Cut the brace out of the bottom of the tunnel

 

 

 

New Brace is in

 

 

Tunnel is back in and welded up a lot of work but got it down to almost stock height

 

 

Got the new drive by wire pedal assembly mounted

 

 

Holes are all welded up and started smoothing the firewall up

 

 

Transmission is in place and the mount we made is a removable one its all welded in now

 

 

 

Update 12

The Door gaps on most of these Mustangs are so tight drives me crazy so had to modify them a little. This one is halfway done but you can still frr how tight the bottom is.

 

Now that looks better a lot of grinding and welding. Takes some time to make it look right but I like it much better,

 

 

Here is how tight the drivers door was after moving it as far forward as i could and keeping everything in line

 

 

Got this side almost done will finish tomorrow just the bottom part left to do

 

 

The factory Stainless Headers need a little modifying I was gonna use the Dougs but found out they wont work with the Automatic they would have to be modified also so made the factory ones work. the drivers side fit s great just need to cut the bottom flange and turn it.

 

 

The drivers side need a bit more work I turned the bottom flange also. Then had to pie cut all 4 tubes near the head flange bend the header down and weld back together fits great now. I even think I might be able to pull the motor in and out with them on that would be a plus we will see soon.

 

 

 

Update 11

Ok got the new Phoenix transmission 4R70W with the hand held programer lets fit it all in there.

After a few times putting the motor and trans in
out this is what needed to be removed to get it in there

Its in and fits real good now gotta make a new trans tunnel and trans mount now

Starting on the removable trans mount coming along nicely

 

One step closer

 

 

 

Update 10

Some more of the boring pics but has to be done. Man this body is in good shape I still cant believe how nice it is.

Gettin it cleaned up and ready for some primer

Trans is not here yet but had to check the fit for the factory headers, master cylinder, how much room for radiator and fans, ect. an general fit plus could’nt wait to see it in there lol

Update 9

Not Exciting stuff but said I would keep the pics coming. Bumper and rear valance getting all lined up not the fun stuff but gotta be done waiting on the transmission and A/C to get here for the fun to start

Looking good and straight

Finishing up a little bodywork
