    I got everything from Rod & Custom. We had a problem with the 15" wheels hitting the caliper so we have to use a spacer and the longer studs.

    disc brakes all the way around, coil over suspension, rack 'n pinion, you'll need those nice new seats to keep you from sliding out of your seat in the twisties, excellent work Rusty et al, is the engine gonna get a little somethin' semethin' too?

    Dashboard is now black

    Installed the rear seat and new rear speakers

    To keep the engine compartment clean we are running the wires outside the fender aprons. Brian drilled a couple of holes to hold the clamps and than used plastic clips that will be under the fender so you won't see anything.

    Apologies for backtracking a little bit, but how long can you leave the fender apron bare metal exposed like that before priming it?

    We have the engine installed and are waiting for a set of headers. The first set we had would not clear the steering.

    Hey guys,
    I've been following your progress and the whole resto-mod is looking super. I couldn't help but notice, you have an early brown solenoid. Is this a 64.5 bodied resto?
    Just nit-picking your brain.

    Very sanitary! Can you use long tube headers for a Fox body or a Mustang II?
    And if I may also nit-pick, shouldn't there be a PCV valve instead of a breather on the right valve cover?
