  1. Not much progress today, still waiting on parts to arrive. I did however get me truck floor completely sound deadened and build my new floor out of MDF. Trimmed up all the panels as well. I did a two piece design so i can take only the panel out closest to me if i ever need to get under it for any reason. Still not sure what I'm going to wrap the floor in. I want something different so we'll see what happens with that. I put my tank in to get a rough idea of what it would look like. so far I like it. Got my front bags started but was sent two right side mounts so RideTech is sending me a left side bracket tomorrow hopefully.
  2. Will do! Got a small update coming in tonight!
  3. Damn life can kick your ass sometimes. Car hasn't been touched in almost two years. 🙄 But with the Corona virus happening and the world basically shutting down I hav found a bunch of time on my hands now and we are back at it. Speaking of which, I hope all of you guys are healthy 👍. Anyways, I believe we left off at right before installing the IRS. I power washed the IRS, finished up my brake lines and got to work putting it in. Not too bad but definitely sketchy having that heavy thing that high in the air. I got in installed though and got some stainless brake lines from Russels ran. New Shafts I'm sure if its been done but I haven't seen it where someone IRS swapped an SN95 and bagged it, but I did/am. Got the rear bags from RideTech and got those installed. I put my tires on without the rear shocks because I was too excited and boy is she sitting pretty. Aired out Fully inflated so i can get on my lift lol I'm thinking around here for ride height Oh did I mention I pulled the motor? Valve seals were leaking really bad under hard deceleration causing it to smoke really bad so I picked some new seals up and a new timing chain kit from MMR. The radiator core support was total garbage on the bottom. Whatever the PO hit bent the support, AC lines and the brake lines. So I tore that bitch out and welded in a new one from AM I believe. Went in pretty nicely. This is where life happens and projects sit for a long time *cough cough @95riosnake* so I'm back at it now. I took all the harnesses out and everything i could to make the engine as bare as possible. Degreaser and Pressure washed it and it looks like shit, better, but still like shit. Wanted to make it look not like shit so I figured I'd lay down some paint and make it more appealing.I thought about black but wanted something a little different. I took off the cowl and wiper motor and cleaned and painted that black and then masked the bay and painted it Dark Metallic Copper. Looks brown from a distance but its got a lot of flake under the light. Before After You can see the flake here Sanded down the brake lines and power steering lines from years of gross and painted/ cleared those as well. I have parts coming in from LMR tomorrow hopefully, to get the motor sorted as far as all the gaskets I need to do valve seals and timing. Not much else "Exciting" happening with the motor for now. I ordered front bags from RideTech and a manual air kit from bag riders to get the suspension finished-ish. Really wanted a nicer electronically controlled unit but Tony convinced me otherwise having less things to fail down the road and everything being mechanically activated is nice. So that's my update for now. Ill probably get the suspension started tomorrow as I wait for parts. But hopefully this thing will be back on the road by end of the month.
  4. Deadener is a bitch aint it? LOL That audio install is looking clean! Keep it going man!
  5. New wheels are legit! She sounds good too. Nice work!
  6. I got some new (to me) Saleen wheels. I'm not sure if I going to keep them the bronze/gold color. I like them but this car is getting paint work when the motor is back in and I'm not sure it will go with the color I have in mind.
  7. So I got an itch I needed to scratch. The car burns oil like crazy when I let off at WOT. I'm talking James Bond smoke screen! So I'm currently in the process of pulling the engine and cleaning up the bay. I plan on putting in some Scott Rod panels in the fenders, shaving the bay and tucking wires. Here's the process so far and where I'm at to date. Started pulling the live axle and prep for Por15 and undercoating. Before After Once I get the new brake lines in place I'll put the new half shafts in and put the IRS in. I also got a new radiator core support. It's a little daunting cutting into your car lol
  8. So a few months ago I picked up an IRS out of a 03 cobra. Guy busted a half shaft so he went solid axle. I got everything for the swap including his exhaust. I just got in some upgraded half shafts from Insane Shafts so I shouldn't have to worry about breaking one.
  9. DAMN its been a minute! Life gets busy, I've moved yet again and hopefully we'll be here a while lol. March 2017 I was in a motorcycle accident so that slowed me down for about 6 months. Now I'm back at it. So a lot has been done to the car. Everyone loves pics so here they are. First off I was tired of my interior looking drab so I gutted her Planned on just doing the carpet but that factory deadener was horrible, so that shit came up and I wanted to do it right so the dash came out All the factory junk off New deadener going on While the dash was out I gave it some TLC as well Tore apart Wire wheeled all the rust off the frame and gave her a coat of flat black Popped open the HVAC and cleaned it out. Also replaced the AC evaporator and heater core while it was apart just for insurance. Since I did the bezel swap earlier I wanted to use the bottons on the bezel for my defrost and fogs so I did @95riosnake retrofit for the defrost and fogs All wrapped up ready to install Wired In Insulating foam down for vibration, also ran new RCAs and speaker wire to the rear seat area Put down new carpet, Buttoned everything back in and she looks great! Oh and I got Termi seats! They need to be shaved but they look good! Wired them in. For anyone wondering, I couldn't use the belt buckle on the termi seat, had to use the one original to the car. No biggie. Then I had KDezines make me his style rear seat delete, First one for a convertible. Got a battery mount in there as well. The interior is done for now, Still need to do the audio but that's for another day lol. I ended up smoothing (sanding) down my import tail lights and mocking them in, redid the wiring to make them work. Just need to get them polished and they're good to go. Don't mind my bs paint.
  10. Sorry I haven't updated recently. Made a few changes to the car nothing major but I've been working on buying a house so the money is tied up for a bit. I have been getting a few things here and there though for when she's done. I figures I'd give y'all a little teaser though. Getting them refurbished so they'll be mint! Enjoy
  11. Yeah maybe I wasn't too clear that was my question was if I could just re-key and new cylinder or if they made specific cylinders for scars that have the Pats system. What I'm asking is are there two different cylinders one for Pats one for non-Pats or is it just one cylinder with a Pats system built-in to the car? Because if it's just one cylinder that's what I want to do is just get that rekeyed for my original key.
  12. Can I buy an ignition cylinder from AM or LMR that's not pats and cut a transponder key to that cylinder to work with my current pats? The new cylinder come with standard keys but I have PATS. If I take the standard key and cut it to a transponder key it should work right? So to clarify and some background… My ignition key falls out when I'm driving. I can pull that sucker right out. I need a new lock cylinder. Question is... Can I duplicate my transponder key BUT have it cut for a new cylinder? Maybe even have a locksmith have the new cylinder keyed to the original key but I just want to make sure I don't need a special PATS cylinder for the ignition. its my thinking that the receiver of the key is in the column and not the actual cylinder since these cylinders are simple to take out when pulling the plastic on the column. Ive looked and I haven't found anything pertaining to replacing the cylinder and reprogramming the key in this fashion let me know if this doesn't make sense.
  13. That's great news! Hopefully I did a well enough job to have the same results. So far so good so we shall see!
  14. NICE! Hey do you have a gap in the corner where the top meets the back of the rear corner window? Like where is pictured below. My top has a gap here on Both sides where the weatherstripping part wont seat properly when I put the top up. I've had three convertibles and I don't remember the first one but the second one definitely had the gap and so does the Cobra. I'm going to replace all the weatherstripping but I think a new top is the only solution???
