R&D has finished up some of their projects for the retail side of things so they started giving the Mustang some attention recently. Nothing major to report but I am excited to finally see some progress on the front valence.





a pair of coolers mounted
brake duct enclosures have begun( I am real curious to see how they incorporate the anti-sway bar)


The coolers were just a little bit too wide for the space so we had to improvise.

A couple small updates. We are still plugging away at all the sheetmetal work. The front valence is finally all one piece. The trunk is starting to get buttoned up now. They are also working on the seat brackets.

Small extensions welded to the subframe for the seat brackets.


Flat plates inside the car for the seats/brackets


Battery tray

I had to throw some wheels on it to snap some pics.



This pic looks weird with only one rear tire on it.

Some of our attention has been diverted to another project but we have made some headway on some sheet metal and windows.
With some pretty heavy modifications the one piece windows are in.



Billet hinges


Here is a shot of the top of the inner fender overlay


Lots of cutting, grinding, welding and filling later......




Pedal assembly/firewall (Danny is going to shoot me for posting pics before he was able to smooth the welds)


Cowl vents removed

The tracks were pretty heavily modified in order for the window to roll down all the way but the door itself doesn't have any extra reincorcement.


Big changes in the transmission department. Modern Driveline helped us out on a T56 Magnum, Quicktime bell housing and a McLeod clutch.

The car is at Magnaflow right now getting the exhaust fitted. They are using a oval x-pipe to keep the exhaust from hanging too low.

J, Looks great, what is that bar going from the firewall to the front in the right side of the picture? Any more pictures of the engine compartment with the braces?

There are 5 bars total in the engine compartment. There are a few pictures of them on the first page.
