    Demented--Send a ticket!!! I could only do it faster because I have already done it. I know all the ins and outs. I only cut a little at a time. I had it in and out of teh car like 30-40 times.

    Thanks guys...1st..how do you get the pics to post in the thread?? I have tried, but couldn't so that's why I send links....

    2nd...The shifter bezel fits great. I am using the 2001 console as well, and I mocked it in place before I welded the the brackets in from the 2001. This was a tricky task, because you needed the gap between the dash and the console to be nice. I got it good the day I did it. It gave me touble the other day while trying to mount the E-brake and hook the cables up, but the bottom of the dash is not bolted down, so I narrowed the problem down to that. Ford was nice for leaving such large holes in the brackets. This allows much room for adjustment.

    If you are using photobucket, use the IMG Code as your link. It's the last one on the list of URLs below your picture. Copy and paste that into the post.

    Sounds good. I'm in Michigan. Me and the guys might be going to Norwalk this year. We didn't go in 2007, but we did go in 2006. We really want to get down to that event this year. I will let you know. That would be kinda in the middle!!

    ive got more of a technical question for you....how are you going to get the ABS to work? is it just going to be rear ABS or 4 wheel ABS? unless i missed somewhere and you already said you are using the brakes and spindles and whatnot from a later model

    Correct!! I am using everything from the 2001. Lines, wiring, everything!! There is nothing fox body about that car....but the body!!:D

    I have all the stock sensors in place, and they run along the fox body perfectly, just like the 2001 car. The fuel lines look like they were made to fit the 81...even though they are 20 years newer!! I just had to modify the left rear quarter well to fit the evap canister back there behind the wheel. I wanted to use everything stock, so I don't have any issues trying to get it running.
