So a quick update. I know its been a while, life is busy and time for the mustang is also way down on the list
Quarters and metal work is like 97% complete. Car was sealed with dupont DTM
Shell is now in primer...
Meantime back at my shop...I put the motor back together. This is the original 390. Its mildly modified, but my goal was to make it look as stock as possible. I totally rebuilt it in 2001, it might have 4-5000 miles on it since then. Runs absolutely perfectly, so I just stripped it down to the long block, cleaned it up, replaced gaskets, repainted.
Intake, timing cover, oil pan, rockers back on
cleaned up a few parts
Zinc plated fan/pulley from amk, some alumiblast paint from eastwood, some broze rustolem...I think this looks much better
Motor painted...valve covers are the originals...they are wrecked so I dont feel bad about using them as paint covers.
Most everything put together.
Next up...cleaning up the transmission/rear end.
