  1. good picture of the engine, waiting on radiator to show up so she can run, so almost back on the road and I've got a lot of wire organizing to do exhaust finally makes it all the way to the back
  2. It's all just practice and problem solving. Building exactly what I want the way I want it
  3. good to see her with all 4 wheels on exhaust is almost done
  4. there is another kit out there that runs about 4k but should go together much better, i'm just glad the shop could make a chromoly front end using what little fit from the kit I got as a template
  5. not sure, it came as part of the mustang 2 kit, but I wouldnt recomend the kit, it has cost me another 5k over the 2k purchase of the kit to get it installed. Nothing lined up right and all the metal was very cheap. Shop ended up remaking most of it from chromoly. And was sent the wrong brakes about 6 times, and even one machined off center spindle. Ended up having to go directly to wilwood to get the right brakes and spindles. So dodnt order from this guy http://www.fulltiltstreetrods.com/frontsusp.htm the shop still has some wrong brakes he is refusing to take back. these problems tacked on about 6 months of labor and waiting on brake parts
  6. oh nevermind about mustang 2, didnt see the 1st page
  7. been a while since I made an update so there is a lot exhaust is nearly done got new wheels on her big tires and some engine shots
  8. lot better than the 200ci inline 6 it came with. Did you do a mustang 2 front end? I had to cut more than I was comftrable with out of the shock towers to fit exhaust so figured why not take em out all together
  9. glad to see someone else doing what I did, now there are one of each, a coupe and a fast back. Difference is I love the LS, bored her out and built the shit out of it running a t56 6speed, hits the dyno for ecu tuning this week, shop estimates north of 700bhp
  10. beefy cross member and engine mounts
  11. at a shop in santee went with the mustang 2 front end with a steering rack and no more shock towers bunch of delays trying to get the right parts from the east coast keep sending me the wrong brakes but the shop is doing the best they can few more weeks then I can hit the road
  12. as long as its the same fit. I just want to get one that doesn't have a spoiler on it how much you want?
  13. went with the mustang 2 weld in front end so spacing changed drastically, gonna have to order new spacers
  14. looking for a metal trunk lid for a 69 coupe preferably in good shape with no rust or dents and near san diego CA but whiling to pay for shipping if i have to
  15. I have a 69 coupe. I am planing to go with this wheel set because i need at least 17s to fit over my wilwood brakes and enough width to handle the built ls1. http://www.cruizinconceptswholesale.com/proddetail.asp?prod=9404STEALTHBLACK17FR500WHEELANDTIREPACAKGE they are meant for a 94 - 04 so does anyone know what size bolt on spacer i will need? right now running some 20's off an 08 so have 2in bolt ons
  16. My 69 pumps around 700 out the rear and right now i am running 20x10.5s since it was the 1st thing i found off Craigslist. I want to go down to 17s since that is the smallest i can fit over my brakes. I wanted to know how thin of wheel is too thin? since most classic wheels that wouldn't need the 2in spacers i run now only go up to like 9 or 9.5 inch wide for less than a grand a wheel.
  17. and anyone know if a 67 or 68 hood fits on a 69?
  18. I'm intending to use the car for dirt track racing, would there be any issue with a fiberglass hood cracking the paint easy?
  19. I have found all sorts of fiberglass hoods, but I want to keep the body steel. I just don't trust fiberglass not to crack right after i get a paint job.
  20. She Runs!!!! still need to bleed the clutch and she leaks power steering fluid all over, but at least I'm really close then off to the shop for exhaust, dyno tune, and alinement
  21. finished up the last of the body stuff for now double check wiring tomorrow then see if she starts
  22. gonna be a while, just focusing on getting it driving for now
  23. yeah those black ones are 18s I think fastbacks have more flare to make room for those scoops behind the doors be my only guess Stance didn't really change after the swap since the ls1 is lighter than the old 200ci I pulled out
  24. rear is 20 x 10.5 but meant for an 08 so had to use 2in bolt on spacers and the jack stands are on the 9in so that is how they sit on the ground the f100 suspension gave me one hell of a lift here is an old pic from before the swap, but after the new suspension and brakes gonna get these soon as I get to driving it a lot
  25. installed the flip open gas cap still working on the connection to the fuel cell, marine fuel hose didn't work aluminum electric water pump, cool feature being the outside is an idler pulley so no belt issues rear fog lights, you know in case I back up in fog put in the nos and extra fuel solenoids mounted my tank
