looks good justin.

need to ditch the flags. escort GT or mustang vert mirrors will cover the stock holes, just barely

kind of holding off on anything trying to save for the dunes, picked up a hood from deathbypsi and he has given me the turbo itch a little too bad. so after the hood is on it is time to find a merkur or turbo coupe to ****** the motor harness and pcm out of

Are you going to add a turbo to your setup or swap the entire engine?
