Made a little more progress last night after the family went to bed. Plugged the holes for the heater lines in the firewall, scuffed and sanded any spots that needed some attention, and hit everything with some wax and grease remover. After that I taped and masked the front half of the car.

After I had all the taping done I covered all the electrical with some aluminum foil and used a bungee as a bridge to keep it from touching anything. Once I was happy with all the prep I hit I with 3 coats of satin black VHT roll bar and chassis paint.

I have to wait for my front fuel lines to show up but in the meantime I'm hoping to break down the front suspension and replace anything that needs it along with the Viking coilover install, 1 1/8 sway bar and disc brake setup. Hoping to have the hydraulic clutch , brakes and front suspension complete before I drop the motor in.

Meant to say brake lines not fuel lines

Put the intake, fuel pump, alternator distrubutor, pulleys and valve covers on the motor today. Mocked up the carb and found that im going to have to relocate my fuel pressure gauge due to interference with the valve cover. Pulled the gauge off the carb feed line and put in a brass plug. Also set up the wiring harness for the 130 amp 3g alternator yesterday. Hoping to be ready to drop it in within the next week or 2.

Made some more progress last night and today. Got the Shelby drop completed along with refinishing the inner fenders. Also installed the Viking coilovers and 1 1/8" sway bar. Once I was finished with the suspension I installed the CSRP 4 piston disc brake kit. Can't thank Dennis enough for all the help he gave me through the install. Now I'm waiting on the new speedometer cable, front parking brake cable and front brake lines and the I'll be ready to set the engine/ transmission and start working on the new interior.

Looking great! Love a set of AR Torq thrust D's, best looking rims on a classic Mustang IMO.

Thanks. It's been a long time coming for me to do this and it really feels great to be making progress on it.

Package showed up from CJ's today with front brake lines and other parts I was waiting on. While I was waiting I hit the raw master cylinder with 3 coats of clear to try and keep it from rusting. Bench bled it and got it ready to drop in. Finished installing the front brake lines, completed the CSRP kit. Installed the front parking brake cable and found I had some clearance issues on the pivot arm and my global west subframe connectors. Ended up pulling it off and grinding it down a little bit and everything is working now. After that I installed the clutch master cylinder. I ended up running out of time to hook up both pedals and start bleeding the brakes. Hopefully I will be able to get all the small things buttoned up/brakes bled and be ready to set the motor and trans next week. I ended up changing the mufflers that I'm going to use. I ordered a set of Borla's crate mufflers that I'll be putting in place of the super 44's. Still planning on using the stainless 2.5" pipe that came with the flowmaster kit.

Managed to get the motor and trans installed tonight. The motor and transmission mounts were energy suspension pieces and a modern driveline crossmember was used on the trans. Everything went together very smooth and I couldn't be happier. I'm going to have to do some height adjustments on the coilovers and set them a little higher than I have them now.

Ran into a little snag last night when I was trying to install my FPA headers. Has nothing to do with the way the headers were built it was the design of the energy motor mounts. They have a large "clamshell " that encapsulates the poly that has a flange and bolt on the top. The issue I was running into was that the #1 exhaust tube was contacting the mount about 1" before I could get the header to the cylinder head. I have a set of Lakewood muscle mounts on the way so they should be here today sometime.

New Lakewood motor mounts showed up at about 3:30. Already had the passenger side mount out and ready to go so I was able to get them swapped out pretty fast. Once the new mounts were in I started installing the FPA headers. I wasn't to thrilled to find out the passenger side needed to be dented to clear the idler arm forcing me to break the ceramic coating. Other than that they installed great and easily.
