    We went to a car show yesterday and parked beside the 1965 Fastback I painted SPI Viper red five years ago. The fastback still looks like it was just painted

    What brand rear end setup are you running? I've been looking at the Swartz setup and haven't really made up my mind with what I want to do. We plan on adding a wider rear tire and will be needing some room. Thanks

    It is from Rod & Custom. They offer a bolt in kit but we welded the crossmembers.

    Check out the Baer brake install in an upcoming issue of Modified Mustangs & Fords magazine.

    No but they will be doing a few tech stories in upcoming issues. We are waiting to test fit a power brake booster for the brake story but there will also be a story about installing a custom Be Cool radiator next.

    If you ever want to put in something "updated" for the dashes, check out a dakota digital dash. They're made over where I live and they're great quality. Couldn't tell if thats what you put in it or not, but i figured id give a shameless plug :)

    saving up right now to put one in my '68:

    they're a pretty sweet little unit. Fits right into the stock bezel.

    Because of working on customers cars I don't have a lot of time to work on my projects but we have gotten a few things done.

    My son Brian, Steve Baur (former Modified Mustangs & Fords editor) and Buddy installing a Ron Morris EFI fuel pump and lines for a story that was featured in the magazine.

    The fuel lines and filter are attached to the subframe connector

    They go through the torque box and into the engine compartment
