    BK and LaserSVT---What is a CT? I am lost here!!:shrug:

    Ryan218--You are not far man!! Come up this summer, lots to do out on Woodward!

    Cenok--No, it is a 4.6L SOHC 2V. I wish it was a dual, but I couldn't cut up a Cobra to do this swap...I would have fixed the Cobra.

    Everybody else...thanks a lot for the comments!

    This weekend I am gonna re-caulk the trunk and rear wheel house areas. I had to scrape the old original stuff up because it smelled old and mustyl!! That smell would have drove me crazy after the interior was in. It will be good now. Then I am gonna lay more sound deadening material on the floorboards, back seat, and trunk. I want this thing to be quiet and nice!!

    After that, more body work, finish making the gas tank filler neck, tie up odds and ends under the hood, like washer bottle, radiator hoses, fluids, misc clips, and plug in a couple more connectors. After I get it running, I will post more pics, and get all the doors, fenders, hood, and jams cut in yellow. Man, I can't wait to get this thing all in primer and paint!!!! After that I will take my time getting all the interior put in properly. I bought a full set of black notch seat belts, but I am currently running the 2001 GT belts up front and they work. I just won't know if they lock while braking until I drive it. Well guys, thanks again!!:nice:

    BK--haha....Did you do that, or did you have a mod do it??hehe

    91foxbod---The dash was the absolute first thing I did. I knew if I couldn't get it to fit, the car was gonna be sent to the crusher. I got it to fit after about 5 hours the first night, and 5 hours the second night. I only had one dash with the bigger radio in it, so I didn't want to screw it up. If I had to do it again, I could get it done in about an hour. I know exactly where to cut it in all the places it needs to be cut, and all the stuff you have to do to modify on the firewall.

    Every single modfox I have seen pics of....the dash hides the door handles. I do not have this problem. The tip of the fox door handle just barely clears the edge of the dash. I know it looks rough now, but I got that thing to fit better than any picture I have seen. It fits tight, and I can even still use the defrost. I am gonna trim the 94-04 defrost bezel and make that fit too.

    Southeast side. The hot spot from March til Sept/Oct. is on Woodward from 13 Mile Rd. to about 16 Mile Rd. From August 1st till the cruise and 1-2 weekends after, the hot spot is from 8 Mile all the way to Pontiac!!! Of course 9 Mile Rd. is where you want to be the day of the cruise. That is Mustany Alley. Don't go south of 8 Mile. If you do...you have a good chance of getting your car jacked!!!!

    PM me when the weather breaks, and I'll give you some directions.

    Go to www.woodwarddreamcruise.com and you can check out the map.
