    Hey

    My names David, Im new to the forum. first bought a 1989 mustang LX hatchback 5.0L about two months ago. Purchased it for $1500, rebuilt engine with the building receipts sitting on a stand, and the harness was removed. Spent the first 2 weeks dropping the engine back in the bay along with gathering a few of the known missing parts. and the next 3 weeks putting the harness back in and hooking everything up.

    Now Im sure someone will say "why not change to 5 bolt" and the quick answer is Ive got 3 other fords with 4 bolt rims and about 5-8 full sets of tires on rims at my disposal.. just trying to keep it simple so if I had a flat it wouldnt be the end of the world.



    -thanks for reading
