Mustang update

Hey guys,

Haven't been on here in awhile. Been really busy at work. Found out the guy that has my ranger wrecked it. Don't know the details on it yet, but from what i hear it's pretty bad. He didn't have insurance on it. So the poor truck will probabley go to the junk yard...who knows.

Anyway I've been workin on the notch for a couple of weeks now, on to the pics:




8.8 with 3.55's and new goodies to go with



and my newest addition GT-40 Lower, and GT-40 Upper. Just need the lower and upper gasket's and 2 longer bolts, and we'll be good. Also have a 65mm Throttle body deal I'm workin on.



Also figured the paint out....here's a teaser:



How the car sits now:




Oh and I got Pipes MANG!

Looks good! Just use threaded rod for the longer bolts... much easier than finding the long ones and way cheaper too!

I've got the measurements already for the bolts...just going down to Lowes and pick em up. I wasn't about to go to the junkyard and try and find them. way to much rain here and the yards are a nice muddy mess.

Nope going to go with this wheel:

Guy at work has Cobra R's for his street tires and 97 GT wheels for his track tires. I really like the 97 Gt's on it.

Good choice on the wheel, those wheels on fox body's havent been played out yet. Are you gonna go chrome or machine finish?

Casey....wait...what? Go get my lift stuff? Uhmmmm nope. Done with ranger's dude...my ranger grew up and became a F150. Had to grow up sometime.

What part of "done with the ranger" did you not understand? LOL

"What you have said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling incohert response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this forum is now dumber for having read your post. I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul."
