Was complemented by the homeless guy standing in the intersection median that he liked my '67 better than the $250,000 Ferrari idling next to me at the light!

Started tearing into the dash to clean it up and get it ready for the AAW harness.

Are those Fiero seats Scott? I have been looking into BMW seats, just gotta see whats involved in mounting them.

I got the entire factory harness out today. It was a pain but I got it out without any cuts or breaks.

A lovely day ripping my dash out and going through my wiring. Trying to find the dead power wire for my MSD box. Ahhh, I'll get it!

I know the feeling. On the coupe my MSD is wired straight to the battery and the starter solenoid, I can imagine the fun trying to find bad wire int eh dash area.

Well this last week has been crazy. I sold my 67 Coupe to fund my 65 Build. I Finished the front torque boxes, floors, door jambs from the fb conversion, cutout the pass side cowl from underneath, and order a MTF body kit.

Im also waiting on memorial day sales...Trying to decide on what parts to order...Probably going to order a brake booster, new stainless lines, new fuel lines, and maybe a few other things

Still working on the dash. I have everything removed except the shell. Been sanding down what I can reach. It's a pain but it'll be worth it.


I got a few little parts in, here's a shot of the super nice billet pedal from Lokar:

I also picked up my brake pedal from the powedercoater today. Looks almost like a new factory pedal! The pedal support also has the MustangSteve roller bearings on it.

My car is finally running well! I had it tuned a couple days ago on a Mustang Dyno and the tuner found I had a problem with my wideband O2 sensor. It was causing it to go really rich. A new one is on the way and also some colder plugs. In the meantime it pulled 511 RWHP and 550 RWTQ. The last time it was tuned it was on a Dynojet which generally reads higher and it made 555 RWHP and about 480 RWTQ. I am happy with my numbers.

One last thing to do is to get the exhaust rerouted over the axle if I can. When I put the car on my lift the axle is being held up on the exhaust. I just replaced 2 exhaust handers because they were bent.

Finally got my export brace, monte carlo bar and shock tower caps back from powder coating. I also installed my GT Performance horn button. She is finally ready for the road again.
