    I like your work! It's cool to see when someone takes the time and effort to do a professional job.

    About the battery location....just spewing....but i've read multiple times that putting the battery near the right rear is equivalent to a 60lb weight transfer to the rr wheel......I'm only mentioning that because of the comment about putting it in the spare tire well.......i know you said you'd put yours up front in the stock location....

    just my 2c

    yeah i have heard that and here i am throwing that shaker 1000 kicker box in that area and man that thing alone probably weighs more 30 lbs. lol.i am not taking this as a negative but a positive that people really like the engine bay and seeing all my effort it would have looked even better with the relocation. i agree it would look better to relocate the battery but it would take away from the look i am after as well.i know if i were to do a poll on this the majority would say relocate the battery.i welcome all comments both negative or positive to help me along with my build.:nice:

    yeah that avatar gets a lot of attention! :D

    And yes, I decided to stay with my car as is. I took a few weeks off from the Mustang (I didn't drive it, read any mags, or come on here!!) Then when I started that baby up and pulled it out of the garage I fell in love all over again!! LOL I think I was mad at it, cause I wanted to do so many upgrades all at once!! It may sound weird, but I know you guys must know what I'm talking about!!! :rolleyes:

    So anyways, I had purchased a supercharger, and all the supporting parts.. but I ended up selling it and making 500 on the deal! So now I have tentative plans for a 393 or 408 NA fuel injected build for next year.. and I still need to complete my 5 lug cobra brake swap. Other than that I'm happy with where I'm at with the car.

    Keep your pics coming, your car is going to be sick!! :nice:

    thanks i am going to start on the engine harness by rewrapping it and making it smaller .i will be putting it under the pinch weld and securing it the same way almost stock did his on his website.other plans for this week is to fix this wall heater that i just picked up on craigslist.it is a natural gas unit and should help stay focused over the winter time.

    the heater box installed but the frame will have to come out as well as the body harness which was from an 87 although the dash harness is from a 92.i bought another harness plus frame and body harness from the pick and pull junkyard and will be installing it tomorrow
