    Bracket design for the GT500 brakes are done: Rear Bracket design is done as well and the files for both have been sent to my machinist buddy.

    The momstangs rebuild

    The afr on my 3v swap jumps between 14.5 and 15.3 at idle. It almost looks like a air/fuel gauge hooked up to a stock O2 sensor it moves around so much.

    I’ll be making my own bracket as im trying to limit the need for a spacer between the hub and rotor. Im unsure if its possible, but thats kind of part if the fun.

    Swapped the stock suspension over into ole red. Then pulled the UPR tubular suspension into the garage. I’ll like add some reinforcement gussets and tubes to this thing to beef it up. Theres also rust alread pushing through the paint, so it’ll have ti get cleaned up and painted again. I also picked up a used stock shifter boot and cut all the sewn seams. I used it for a template to cut some pieces out of this faux CF embossed leather. I also was looking at upholestry threas and found a color that’ll go well with the car:

    Currently.. neither. Lol i machined up a spacer to verify the needed bracket thickness with the caliper bracket tightened. Now i need to pull the whole thing apart so i can draw up the Bracket in Cad and have them machined.

    They are MMD’s from american muscle. Ive never seen them in person, so it fit perfect with the concept of this build. Haha

    Who needs a e-brake? Lol i’ll use an aircraft hydraulic parking brake. Basically its like a line lock, but mechanically actuated.

    Been crazy busy with work, but the past few weeks ive made some progress: Underside of the car was cleaned and a rust sealer/prevention primer and black paint applied. I also recoated the wheel wells with a rubberized undercoating: I also painted the hood and mirror caps: Sprayed a test panel for the possibility of some ghost racing stripes: Removed the IRS from ole red the donor car: Then i finished bending and installing new rear brake hardlines and stuffed the irs into the project car: Here is what the car looked like just prior to installing the irs: Then i started installing the Front Cobra brakes onto the IRS. A custom bracket, minimal trimming of the dust shield (I’ll likely make new ones from CF or something) and a littl grinding of the ridges on the top of the cobra calipers and it fits like a glove: I also ordered Everything needed to run 14” GT500 brembo’s up front. Based on my research and some measurement, its looking Very possible i’ll be able to use my 17” FR500’s.

    It is! I really like the stuff so far. It sprays well and the coverage is pretty godd. The copper gets 1 light coat and is then left to flash, then 2 medium wet coats and that is all. Clear normally gets 4-5 coats for the extra shine.

    Installed the foglights and bezels on the bumper last night: Also relocated the proportioning valve and started running new brake hard lines. They could be better, but they wont be visible, so im not to worried about it. I spent all day together working on replacing the rusted rocker panels on my truck, got one side about 1/2 wayish done. Tomorrow its supposes to rain and the truck doesnt fit in the garage, so i’ll spend the day finishing the brake lines and install the subframe connectors on the mustang.

    Stuck at home with a head cold and clogged sinus’, so may as well do something fun to work the cold out. Final coats of clear on my firewall panel: Painted the front bumper: Put the car back in the garage and put it on jackstands under the suspension so i can put the subframe connectors on and start replumbing the brake system as well as some rust cleanup and undercar coating on the bottom side. I’ll probly swap the solid axle out for the irs before taking it off the stands.

    Now that all the T1’s and firewall panels are done, i can make my own stuff. My cowl panel is done, mostly. Still a bit of waviness to it, i’ll probly wetsand and clear it one final time. I also separate the splitter from the front bumper and trimmed it. Now i need to do some sanding to smooth it out, then skin it in CF.
  15. It’d be an extra $75, but i can do it.
