I have gotten a lot done on my mustang this past summer. Sorry I have not been posting as much as I should be!
I had my 351W tore down to the bare block and I degreased it and painted the block. I have my front facing sump and oilpump installed, I got my new water pump installed (I needed one with the dipstick hole for the front sump) I have my trick flow aluminum heads all prepped and ready to go on. right now, I'm trying to find the proper pushrod length. I bought a custom ground comp cam and I have that installed. The engine is coming along nicely.
As far as bodywork goes, I have replaced the full outer wheel house on the driver side and the drop down panels. I have my quarter panel lined up to where I want it. So far, I only have self tappers holding it in place basically because I'm not looking forward to welding it in. that will be scary because I don't wanna mess up. I have done a lot of research on it and believe I am ready to take on the task. I bought an aftermarket driver side door from cjpony parts. I am very happy with how it lines up! I figured Id have problems with an aftermarket. I did purchase a rust free original passenger side door awhile back. At Iola carshow/swap meet, I purchased an original rust free front passenger fender and fender extension. Recently at Jefferson swap meet, I also purchased some original front bucket seats, some hood hinges and an original front driver side fender. This fender has some rust but I think between the two I have, I can make a good one. my mustang is starting to come together and its really satisfying to see! I will post some pictures later when I get some time.
