Hello Canadians!

Cold enough for ya? Is there anyone out there? Man oh man this forum is quiet these days.

I bought a Lecarra steering wheel over the winter, can't wait to install it this spring. Anyone else get anything purchased or accomplished over the winter?

I'm here... and it's been too damn cold to turn on the heat and work by the time I get home at night!

I haven't accomplished much this winter except I got my rear frame rails finally welded in, put my axle in (temporarily) and bought a ton of parts. I've collected nearly all the main parts and sheet metal that I need aside from one quarter panel, trunk lid/end caps and whatever seats I decide to go with.

When your car is ready, or if you just want to come out, you should come to our Stratford cruise night Tuesdays starting the end of May. It's at the mall.

I'll definitely check it out, but I'll have to park my Mazda out back. lol It'll be a few years yet before this car will make it, but I'll be sure to check it out this summer. I'm only about 40 minutes away!

I spent half the winter in northern Alberta...talk about cold

At home on the east coast I have a Modine Hot Dawg 65,000btu's in my garage, plenty of heat. I think I had a productive winter for all. Check out my thread..

As long, cold and crappy as this winter has been here in South Dakota I think we have earned honorary Canadian status this year. Here's a cold one to you!

Cool

Thanks for the thread, Brian. It must take cajones to build a Mustang from the dash up, wow, man, wow.

There's a guy in Strathroy that has a whole collection of parts, if you need stuff you should look him up on kijiji.ca.

Two weeks ago I lowered my seat pans in the 67 because my new TMI Sport R made my head just touch the headlinder and I'm only 5' 7"

Other than that, my huge build thread last winter was all of it

LOL,

I doesn't makes sense. 67 = bigger car but smaller cockpit. 65= smaller car and very spacious cockpit. I would still trade for a 67 FB any day though.

65 Fastback C code
- Randals Rack
- T5 conversion
- R front bumper, Shelby hood, Pony interior
- Lincoln disc rear end w/pos 3.55 gears
- 620lbs front coil / 4 leaf rear springs w kyb all around / Shelby Drop / adjustable strut rods
- Air Conditioned
- Summer Daily driver!

I made some adjustable strut rods and installed those.

Installed Fiero seats.

I went to change all my brake pads (you know, after 800 miles, it was time for a switch) and realized the 800 mile rear caliper was leaking, so replaced both of those.

Went to change the clutch because I found a ford racing HD clutch in there, which explains why the pedal is soooo stiff, so ended up dismantling the T5, replacing yoke, yadda yadda.. Terrible idea. Not done yet!

At this stage in my life I prefer to work on the car with the garage doors open when the temperature is about 22C and the birds are tweeting.

Nothing to report except I have gathered parts for electric power steering install.

I will likely turn the heat on and get to it next month.

I've been the big slacker eh?

408 - 5 spd. 10.x through the mufflers
