Ranger024x4's 88 mustang build

Got another project, and 'project' is an understatement. Lol. My girlfriends brother needed the cash bad so I ended up with this thing. Its an 88 mustang gt 5 speed with about 139k on it. Luckily, he is a mechanic so mechanically the car is 100%. The Interior is pretty fresh as well, but he wrecked it a few months ago. Basically took a left turn too fast in the rain and lost it... Took out a speed limit sign and a few mail boxes. Luckly it only needed a bumper cover and a fender. He is currently putting a new fender and bumpers (converting it to an lx, blasphemy I know) and ill be able to pick it up.

Current mods:
Bbk shorty headers
Bbk offroad h-pipe
Flow master 40 series exhaust dumped
Mass converted
Intake
Holly performer intake mani
Air pump delete
Under drive pulleys
Pony wheels
Lx tails
3.73 's


Current plans
Complete the exterior conversion
Eibach pro springs
17x9 17x10 sc rep wheels
Change the exhaust from dumped to 'lx' style
Clear headlight kit
Paint

Not in that order, but it should all be done by mid April if everything goes to plan. Maybe earlier. I am changing the color of the car from dark red to one of 3 choices.

Sorry no pics yet, it's not very pretty anyways lol

Looking forward to seeing how this goes! That's the exact type of car I want to come across to use as a donor for my '68.

Nice I'd love to find an old fox to toy with. When they are cleanly modded they look badass.
