  1. You really should relocate your battery to the rear since your bay is so nice...
     
  2. i really couldn't because this is a t-top car and i have a shaker 1000 kicker box going back there so no room.
     
  3. Man that thing is going to be SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  4. i will be picking your brain with all the maximum motorsports stuff going on your car.i have the steering shaft and i plan on cc plates and maybe a strut tower brace if i sell the ford racing one i have.i want my car to handle as well but i don't plan on any road racing strictly a nice driver.
     
  5. thanks man your avatar is my first car when i was 18 in 87 but mine was a hatch.i can start to get some progress now that i have some paint on it.
     
  6. looks damn good man! i'm very impressed. can't wait to see the finished product :nice:
     
  7. i can't wait to see the finished product as well still a long way to go but i think the fun part of the build begins.i am looking forward to the day where it sits on all four wheels again.thanks for the kind words :nice:
     
  8. I bought my first fox in 1988. It was an 88 white GT hatch with a red stripe and grey skirts. I was 22 then.
     
  9. coming along nicely.
     
  10. Nice!

    I can't wait to see this one done!
     
  11. Wow thats going to be sooooo clean.
     
  12. alright i can help with anything you need im on AIM every day
     
  13. lookin sooo sooo smooth and clean! what is this primer your talking about? peace









    john:p
     
  14. thanks again
     
  15. Looking good. Keep them coming. :nice:
     
  16. Maybe mount it in the giant hole known as the spare tire carrier?:shrug:
     
  17. good idea but i want to keep my spare when i take the t-tops off it would definately be a problem as well.i like the look of a redtop battery in the engine bay and i might fabricate my own tray out of metal and paint it body color as well.
     
  18. Thats where I put mine, the top of the box is about an inch over the carpet line. But my car is a t-top car too so maybe I did something wrong? lol JK


    The car is coming along nicely man!!! keep up the good work!
     
  19. we all know that our engine bays look like **** with all those engineering holes i really am after a stock look or what stock should have been for our cars back in the day.if you've looked at the previous pages you would see there was a rollcage in this car and it had a cutout for a sumped tank.my plan is to make it a nice driver thats clean and fun to drive.
     
  20. i never measured so i assumed that it would be too high but if i were to do anything with the spare tire area it would be to put a full size rim and tire in there and make it flush with the edge of the tire.i would build a platform around it and then carpet it.i think that would be real cool.thanks man yours is way further ahead then mine and i have been eyeing it closely.one day we need to get together when our cars are complete at carlisle.i haven't been there yet.
