Everything is out and the 351c was sold and left on a trailer today so I guess its real. I ordered a plasma to be here next week. I will be cutting out the old and welding in the new.

On a side note has anyone usd a hydroboost i. A 70 coyote swap?

Looks like the cowl will be getting replaced before I go any further.

Had a few issues and it turned out the full fender aprons that were sent to me were for a 68, which explains the poor fitment. MTF sent out some new ones and I will fit them up when I get home. Hooefully it will finally be time to get this thing back to a roller.

Not 70 mustang coyote swap, but my 67 cougar coyote swap. It uses 2003 mustang cobra hydroboost mounted on a modified reproduction Boss 429 booster mount. I also did a few mods to the brake pedal to match the pedal ratio of the cobra hydroboost. You can check out what I did in my photobucket link or my build thread in my signature. In hindsight, you might be able to modify the 2003 cobra hydroboost bracket to mount onto the firewall.

Your cowl looks to be in about the same shape as my original part.



Not much there...

Yeah, the passenger side was the worst and took out the inner kick panel and a portion of the "Toe kick". I am going to replace or repair all of it, this weekend I will actually have some time. The outer A pillar on the passenger side is most concerning to me. Hopefully I can get the welder going and get the cowl back in so I can move on to the kick panels.

Had to go to work for a few days but got to hit it fairly hard the past few. Well as hard as I can with 2 kids and a wife. I got a bunch of the old rusty sheet metal out and am ready to weld in the frame connctors and the Mustangs to Fear IFS system. The passenger floor pan is only needing a front pan but the drivers side is a long pan. The toe panel on the passenger side will also get replaced.

I am kind of stuck on the cowl until I get some bacing in to keep it from moving.

Question for anyone, Lato specially. When doing the lower a pillars do I start with the inner or outer or does it really matter?

Had some time to work on it this weekend. Have the IFS cross member, sway bar mounts, jack pad and Frame connectors in.
