Finally making my first post.

Hello everyone!
I have lurked these forums for years slowly finding answers to my questions... So I figured I should finally make a post.
My dad passed on his 65 coupe to be about 3 years ago and I have slowly been throwing modifications at it.
My dad bought this about 30 years ago as a shell and he installed the 302 that is in it currently, along with a C4, which has recently been swapped with a T5 by yours truly.
This is how she currently sits, sporting her fresh rattle can paint job:

This is how she used to look:

I'm very active on the vintage mustang forum facebook page where many members have helped me tremendously, member 2nd 66 basically held my hand through my T5 install.
I've basically refreshed all the suspension components, replaced the power steering with manual steering, did the T5 conversion, swapped out the exhaust, and tons of other things.
Next install I need to do is throw in 3.55 trac loc 3rd member I have sitting in my garage.
I have an instagram post where I post updates if anyone wants to give it a follow @bayarea_65 .
Thanks everyone.

Welcome Raymundo, for a rattle can job I'd say you've done about as good a job as is possible. I can definitely see the @2nd 66 influence going on . Love the stance, those wheels and tires fit great

Raymundo being self admittedly some what forum challenged, I offered to try to help a brother out. Hopefully the powers that be will go easy on us
He bought some 65/66 v8 spindles but ended up with 2 of one side if anyone was wanting to trade for the other side
