    Headers look good, I hope they don't start to brown on you.

    Aren't you the one who fabbed up the intake out of some monster 4in stuff from Lowes or something? Because I need to buy or make one, I converted to mass air and have the old speed density filter setup.

    yes it was me.This is a pic of it when it was on my coupe i just got rid of,but when i get to that point on this project witch will hopefully be tomorrow i'll be using it again!I bought 4" black PVC in a 5' stick and also got 4 4" rubber couplings they came with the hose clamps as well as a few 4" elbows. The reason i bought 4" stuff is because my TB is a 90MM (4" dia)

    Did but didnt get much done today. Man trying to make stuff look good and hide stuff is tedious!Took the fans back and got diffrent ones,also picked up a hayden varitable temp switch. Installed the fans, and the hayden thermo switch, just need a few more wires hooked up.Installed the clutch cable,topped off the coolant modified the coil mount and mounted it,put the header gaskets on and i think thats it?

    That's what I was thinking. You know what would make super cool? Get a black rad hold down cover instead of the stock brackets to cover the yop of your rad. That would look killer.

    Thats whats nice about being laid off now,cause i've been able to spent everyday for almost 23 days working on this for 8-10 hours a day! My notch took me 2 1/2 months for the reason i was working and i didnt really know what i was doing with it.There was a few days this time around that 16-20 hours was put in cause DNADOA was over helping.Cobra912 where did you get that pic from i'd like more info on it.The gap between the core support and headlight header will be covored with a black piece as well i seen thos in 50resto.I will also figure out some kind of better cleaner for the fans or i'll just pull them and paint them?Also on both fenders i need to retape them and paint my tape line i have there as well as (atleast for now) paint the core support.Thinks everyone to the kind words!My buddy says i need to do these for people and charge them for it :shrug: I would love to quite my job and do my own shop with stuff like this as well as doing mods to well of course mustngs and only foxbody and 94/95 cars! peace
