    Here is some pics of my progress so far on my 90 GT.I The car is from Hawaii so it was 99% rust free.It onle had a few spots of rust in the door jams so I cut it out and welded new metal in.Over the winter I'm converting it to a 5spd doing a five lug swap w/94 spindles and fox size axles 13" Cobra brakes in the front and 11.65" in the rear.I'm trying to decide if I'm going to run black 10th Anv rims or black FR500's.:shrug:

    The body work was done over the summer in six weeks.I'm going to start the five lug swap in a few weeks as soon as i get all of the parts.No I don't live in Hawaii a friend of mine picked it up out there when he was Marines and brought it back to IL.

    Well I got most of the front and rear suspension off my car this morning.Now I need to decide what springs and rear control arms to go with.I want the car lower than stock but not so low it's scraping the ground.Maybe Ford racing B springs?I was thinking about Granatelli Motorsports Weightjacker Control Arms Granatelli GMCA7998WJ Granatelli Motorsports Weightjacker Control Arms
    and their adjustable upper rear control arms Granatelli GMCA7900U Granatelli Mustang Adjustable Upper Rear Control Arms

    Thanks for the heads up on the granetelli stuff.I may just leave the stock control arms in for now. I have lots of other things to buy before summer if I want to get the 5spd in and the brakes done.

    Well I got the 255lph fuel pump in today and rebuilt the trac lock.I found a easy way to get the spring back between the spider gears.Use a C-clamp and a small piece of metal and I just screwed the clamp down and it went right in.New B springs came today also so I should be able to get all of the suspension back together this weekend. :D
