    Well It's beena looong time since I have been on SN, so now that I am finally getting around to working on the Stang again I thought it fitting to go ahead and start my own progress thread. First, since I got my BBK LT's installed in early 2006 there has been a slight leak. That is one thing I am tackling, along with my noisy TOB. In March 2009 I had the Trans rebuilt but I don't think the mech. replaced the TOB/PB, so I am replacing those along with getting an new clutch, cable, firewall adjuster and quadrant. I'll also be getting the N2O system all fixed and up to par. I figure while I am at it I will do some more suspension work too. Theres several smaller issues I'll be addressing as well. And here is an older pic for those that have never seen my car.

    I thought maybe they had you on an undercover mission in the west end.;) Glad your back. Quick question...saw a late model unmarked Mustang that I think LMPD had behind some construction under the belvedere last week. I think it was gray or something like that. This is the first police stang I have seen since the old fox body 5.0's. What year is it and how man do you all have? I was coming from the other direction and couldn't believe those were Mustang driving lights in the grill with the red and blues.;):D

    Hahaha no I've just been on the late shift. Thank god I got on another shift though. I actually have time to do things outside of work now. To be honest I didn't even know we had any Stangs with the Police package. Thats something I'll have to look into...The ole' Stang has been apart for (gasp) 8 months.:nonono:, It'll be noce to drive her again.

    Nice to see you're back. While looking through an old thread just the other day, I thought about you being gone. I'm sure you'll be ecstatic once you get her back together and running. Keep us posted! :nice:

    Thanks guys its been entirely too long since I have been on here and even longer since I have driven the Stang. I have been so busy with work and other stuff that I have been neglecting the Stang. KB, I'm not sure if I am getting rid of the X yet. I may be redoing the whole exhaust as well. We'll see how the build goes.

    Update: June 29, 2010

    Ok well I got some more work done on here yesterday. I was able to get the passenger side almost all the way apart, just need to get a pickle fork to finish it the rest of the way and its on to the drivers side. As I am going along I am thinking of more and more parts I want to upgrade, like the breaks:nice:

    I am debating whether or not I want to go with a tubular K-member since I am dropping the stock one anyways, but my Tokico's are still basically brand new (less than 6,000 miles)

    Ok thanks. Now that I think about it I do remember the MM piece allowing the use of the stock a-arms. Thats what happens when your out of the Stang world for a few months, you forget things. Anyways that AJE K looks awesome from a price standpoint. Hows it in terms of reliability and durability?

    Even if you can't find the funds to upgrade the brakes it would be a huge improvement to repaint the calipers since it looks like the paint on yours has seen better days. I got mine from Eastwood and I even found some little mustang decals that supposedly were from ford but I doubt that. Anywho I found out later not to put all the activator with all the paint as you will have paint jello in a few hours but I was still able to get a coat on the front ones and it makes it look night and day better. :nice:
