Good day when you find all your parts that you stuck all the the place. Now I can start doing some assembly.

I thought I understood the meaning of "attention to detail" until I saw that color-matched fuel filler neck.

Well in the final chapter of this build.. this is going to be one of the biggest sub chapters…the dash project
The frame is out of the 94 and the wiring has all been reworked to cut out what I don’t need the dash is out of an 04 Mach 1. The dash isn’t all that great as far as shape if I were leaving it like it was no way it would go in this car but this aspect of the build is gonna be very intensive and very custom so should be fun.

Lol! Thats the main reason Im using a later dash. Saves me having to fill it in. Going for a really clean look. No gauge pods either
I’ve often considered swapping in a 2002-2004 charcoal grey interior into my ‘95 for that very reason. I think that ship has sailed, though. The odds of finding a complete, mint interior are pretty slim these days.

Its out there. I just bought a 1800 mile complete interior out of a mach 1. Door panels and seats were brand new. Thanks to a lead from a stangnet guy.

For those of us that aren't 100% sure on the differences in the dashboards, can you post a pic of both to show us what's different?
The 3 biggest differences are
Color..charcoal v black
Double din opening v single vin
No cutout for clock pod.
None of these are a huge deal. I am wrapping mine in real leather and cutting it around my cage so I just wanted a clean one to start modding.

You'd be surprised on how many 02-04 mint interior is out there. I picked up an entire 02 GT interior with seats for $300 and it only have 55k miles on it. Find yourself a low mileage v6 and you are golden.

No part on this car goes from the box to the car ..without me doing my thing to it. the master cylinder is no exception. I ordered the plain versions because the polish is usually crap so I polish then myself. And I get that willwood is proud of their parts but 4 logos on one part. Damn. So I shaved two before polish/coating.

LOL, I'm surprised that the one you didn't shave, won't be visible!
Just so you know…when I had employees working with me on The Mustang builds. If they made the mistake of saying “you’ll never see that when its together anyway”…it was an automatic ticket to unemployement.

Ummmm.... Since I'm the one who pays you, let's just say this is your annual review and you get 5 stars and go above and beyond. Please don't fire me.
