    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.

    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.
  10. 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.
  11. Man, this thing is gonna be sweet. Looks like a ton of hard work, props to you man.
  12. thanks ozz i still have to make the boot for the e-brake but the detail in it is awesome my mother worked on the center console for about 4 hours getting the detail i asked of her.i will post pics of it later in the evening if i get around to upholstering it today.as far as the cruise i will see you at that time i don't want to stay there too long have to work on the car.
  13. thanks a lot of work but worth it the whole interior will be upholstered to give it a more european look
  14. Sam, This is John and I met you at the Mustang Deaborn Show. My buddy had the Sunset Pearl 88 T-top. I'm following your build. Looks Awesome.
  15. I got a sneak peek of the console. Very slick!! Can't wait to see it all sewn up 100%
  16. Thanks John welcome to stangnet
    Hey Ozz I will be upholstering the rear inner quarters as well soon it will complete the look I'm after
  17. Man, I remember seeing the shell on the tires in the back yard. You have come a long way. Keep it up!
  18. here is the center console came out really nice
    a close up of the detail
    and the shifter boot again my mother sewed all these up
  19. 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.
