Just wanted to introduce myself, hopefully you’ll see me here a good bit. I started with a 69’ coupe 302, then moved on to a 93’ GT. I sold the 93’ and years passed but I really missed my foxbody. So last year, I lucked out on a really well priced 82’ t-top GT. The body is in good shape, the interior wiring was a mess. So I gutted the interior to start. Over the past year, we decided to move but now I’m settled in and will be moving the mustang in this weekend. So if all goes to plan, you’ll see progress posts soon. I’m a Motorsports technician advisor for a major manufacturer for a living, so I’m really having fun tackling this wiring and making it right without those “what have I done” moments I would’ve had with the previous two. Anyways, here’s a few photos of the current project in timeline order of work done! More to come!

Nice project. Have you decoded the vin and door plate to see what you can find out about the original specs? I'd love to do a simple carbed 82 GT one day. A restored to factory 82 looks great to me. Welcome to Stangnet!

@Wayne Waldrep haven’t decoded the VIN but I checked engine number. The engine is out of an 87 vehicle. I’ll pull the intake to see exactly what it came out of and if it’s a roller motor or not. Engine did not have a mechanical fuel pump hole in the timing cover, which was my first clue. So all original is no longer a game plan for me.

Oh you can still do an original looking car. Doesn't have to be numbered correctly. Just visually factory correct..... That's just my random thoughts. Look forward to seeing what you do with it.
