I didn't really do anything but get the pic from my wheel vendor, after waiting six weeks, showing me that my wheels have been assembled and will be on their way to the shop. The car isn't ready to go anywhere, just needed to do something that made us feel like we were making progress after six years. Mine are the set in the middle. Rotiform MLW

Ahhh I had fun installing that kit! Took me a while, after work and on weekends here and there, but good times!
I'll give you some advice... ground your tail lights.. I didn't use the stock aaw plugs for the rear. I modified my light housings to accept a 1" push in 1157 socket that had stop, turn and a ground lead. Lights were much brighter than they were in stock forum using the aaw harness

Great to see your progress. I really like my Mustang Steve roller bearing kit. Always great service and quality from him.

Still waiting for my parts from powder coating :-/ Oh well, guess I get the boat ready for fishing with the boys :-)

Cleaned up the shop and just for giggles i threw in my rear springs and housing. I bought the spring kit from cjp and was totally disappointed by the hardware store bolts they had for the front of the springs but just had to laugh out loud when I put them in.

Got a small load of "free" stuff from cjp today. Can't beat it for the price and at this stage every penny counts. Should have a couple more boxes coming.

Got my passenger side fender welded up. I think with a little plannishing and a little more grinding I will be in business.

I am working on a few things right now. I removed the 3rd member because it was making some noise under acceleration. It turned out that the pinion has too much play and was causing a bearing retainer to rub on the pinion gear when under load. Pretty easy fix by adjusting the preload and getting another bearing retainer.

I am also repairing an exhaust hanger that is bent. All this is to get ready to take the car in for a dyno tuning session next week. I switched over to an Accell Thruster DFI a couple years ago and my tuner does not have his dyno is the ground due to a recent move. I am taking it to a new shop to fine tune things under WOT and to improve on some drivability issues. It seems to be a little rich and wants to stumble at times.

I also just switched over from a Professional Products throttle body to an Accufab unit. I had a fried have lots of problems with his PP throttle body and when he switched back to a stock one it took care of ALL of his problems. Made me think mine was part of my issues. We will see.

I hope this takes care of all the little annoying things my car does that makes me want to leave it in the garage instead of driving it.

Bought about $800 worth of misc parts to start putting the finishing touches on the '67 & talked to the insurance guy about starting a policy so I can get it in the road.
