    the one on the right was on my other mustang and i wanted to make sure this never happened again once i pop riveted these in place the one on the right including all the pieces was sandblasted clean.there was no rust on them just alittle surface rust on a few and i epoxy primered painted and sealed them.[​IMG]

    and here is a pic of my car with the oem original side ground effects pop riveted in i didn't have a template to go by so i had to carefully measure the ground effects and drill holes in my rocker.my measurements were spot on .

    for those of you who haven't followed the thread from the beginning i have collected all original oem 93 cobra parts hence the different colored side ground effects.it took me three years but it was worth it just seeing the fit and finish of oem.

    The console is awesome. The soft leather look reminds me of my G, and that's something that I'd have loved to have done on the dash in the Stang if it were a darker color. You're definitely going to have one of the nicest Fox interiors I've ever seen.

    I will probably get to Woodward around 11-12.

    Man, I remember seeing the shell on the tires in the back yard. You have come a long way. Keep it up!

    update as far as the scraping that i was hearing from the bellhousing i dropped the transmission and sure enough there was a groove caused by the pressure plate .thank god thats all it was i would hate to have had to pull the motor and start over.i was worried the cylinder walls may have rusted and was the scraping i was hearing.i hope to have it running on thursday since my kids football scrimmage is tomorrow.
