    ok so i got some catching up to do

    motor is in square now
    headers are in
    converter is bolted up
    steering column is back in (**** working under the dash!)
    nitrous panel is rewired to get rid of everything 5 speed related
    strange struts are in
    new rotors are on the way (cracked one putting 3 inch studs in)... remember the saying measure twice cut once?yea this applies to pressing in studs also. the power slot rotors i had have a .565 bore for the studs. the moroso 3" studs have a .615 shoulder for the press. and it didnt work out well.

    ordering tires next week just need to finish the wire up on the trans brake and nitrous stuff

    What was the deal with the headers not fitting to good, I'm guessing you found some sort of solution?
    So you'll have this thing ready to rock and roll by the time it's 100 degrees out side;)

    I know you have heard all the horror stories about using those VW tires on a mustang, but it really did happen to a friend of mine. The tire blew out going down the interstate.

    ok so i knocked the studs out of the new rotors... STILL not the right size hole in the rotors for a 3" FORD stud. SO prob going to be on hold for a few days till after i get up to my buddys shop to mount the tires and use his mill to drill the holes out for the studs.

    so this week i will keep going with the wire up for the nitrous and mounting the shifter. think im going to make something like the holcomb mount
