  1. Seems like most of my pictures are with the hood open. :)
  2. Haven’t updated this in a long time, but figured I would follow up with some finished pictures and information. Been on the road now for approximately 6 months now.

  3. I'm looking to purchase one of their bezels, and run Speedhut gauges in it. It's looks like on MTF's website the gauges are 5" and recommended to be 2 5/8". Speedhut doesn't offer a 5" gauge, their closest is a 4.5". Does anyone know if these will work? Second question is dealing with the 2 5/8" gauges. They strongly recommend this over a 2 1/16" size. Is this for best gauge bezel fitment? Or is there another reason not to use 2 1/16"? I'm wanting to purchase the gauges before the end in of the weekend, as they are having a pretty good sale right now. So any help would be appreciated! Pictures of install of speedhuts in MTF's bezel would be a big plus as well! :)
  4. Sorry for the late response on this, haven't been on here in a really long time. The booster is a Fox Mustang 4cyl. No real major updates on the car since I've moved out to California. Been too busy to really get a lot accomplished. Every once in a while I'll get a day to work on it, so progress has been really slow.
  5. Nothing real special... 2.76 pulley, jlt CAI, catted x pipe, bassani catback, lowered, 18" FR500 Chromes. I'm a little concerned about the emissions testing once I get out there, but I hear with the stock H on the car and the tune back to stock, I should probably be ok on things. Any comments?

  8. I'm not specifically looking for 69/70 cars (although it would be nice!). I've got an 04 Cobra as well. Wasn't sure if there were some 'general' car forums for the area? Thanks

  10. Thanks guys, any good forums to visit out there other than the ca-mustang one? Doesn't have to be Mustang specific. Look forward to maybe meeting you guys here sometime. The car is going to be in storage until I can find a house/place to put it out there, so it might be a couple of months before I get back into things. Todd
  11. Probably the last real update on the car for a little while. I'm in the process of changing jobs and being relocated (moving from Indy to the San Jose/Fremont California area). I'm guessing the car will be on hold for a little while do to the relocation, but hopefully once I get settled out there I might have some more time to really bust through some things. Back to the update: So for the steering column, I cut the original column tube down, inserted a 3/4" D shaft into it and welded it on. On the end of the column I installed a 1 5/8" OD, 3/4" ID flanged roller bearing (6384K367 from McMasterCarr). The fit of the bearing is pretty snug, so I don't think I need anything to keep it in. I also purchased a driveshaft for the car from CCI driveline (http://www.ccidriveline.com/). The shaft is basically their '1 piece' shaft they sell for 07+ GT500s, but with a custom length. I ended up going with a 3.5" OD shaft with 53.5" flange to flange length callout. They made the shaft and shipped it the same day as my order, had it two days later. Great service, great looking shaft. Installed it without any issues. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a shaft. Aside from not having any brakes hooked up on the car, I should be able to start it up and drive it onto a trailer for transport out to California.
  12. A little update... if anyone is wanting to use a fox/sn rack, don't bother getting the Unisteer rack fittings. Long story short, the fittings won't fit beside each on the rack, so you can't actually install them. Then you can't tighten the bolt down on the pump because it hits the alternator bracket. So I spent a couple hours tearing off the old stuff, just to put it back on. Good news is it appears I might have fixed my leaks (the problem before was the high pressure hose blowing off a push to connect AN fitting). Started it back up again over the weekend and let it run for probably close to 20 minutes. Got up to 220 coolant temps (no fans) before I shut it down. No real signs of leaks... I did get a steering shaft made up for the car. I'll take some pictures to show how it works.
  13. Thanks guys... definitely been a lot of work. Seems like you take 2 steps forward, 1 back sometimes. Had the car running on Saturday night, everything seemed to be going great, then the power steering lines decided they didn't like having fluid any more. Looks like I just need to get some different fittings for the high pressure side, so they are on the way and a few other random parts. Hopefully... I can get the fittings changed out and the car will start/warm up to full operating temp without issues. As of now I've probably ran it 20 minutes total.
  14. Installed a new heat exchanger to get better fitment. It is a 26x7x3.5 unit from FrozenBoost. I would say the thing is built very well. Only complaint I have is that it is a little on the heavy side. I made brackets for the upper and lower sides of the heat exchanger. The upper mount uses the grille support bolt locations, the lower brackets bolt to two threaded inserts in the front crossmember. In an effort to reduce clutch pedal effort, I installed a new master cylinder for the clutch. This time using a 5/8" bore master from Wilwood. Along with the new master I also changed the way the master bolts to the clutch pedal (moving the actuation point up approximately 1.5"). This has resulted in a very nice pedal feel. I started working on fitting up an export brace for the car. The firewall plate and the shock tower plates are made from 3/16" steel, the rods are 1" diameter 1/8" wall tubing. Obviously not welded up yet, but getting things ready. Fabbed up some brackets for mounting the coolant overflow tank. I cut the tabs out of the original radiator support, then welded in an angled support bracket to give it a little more rigidity. I cut away approximately 2" of the stock radiator mounting location from the original radiator support. This got put the radiator closer to the AC condenser, and also allowed a little more room between the radiator and the engine. Made a fender mounted cold air intake. This basically is using the same silicone couplers I used before on the underhood mount. I used the plastic pipe from a JLT high boost intake for an 03/04 Cobra. Cut a hole in the fenderwell for it. Current underhood shot (obviously colors on things will change when finished).
  15. Worked on the trans tunnel a little bit last night. Will hopefully get everything close to finished up ready for welding tonight on it. As far as the exterior of the body is concerned, the roof/cowl/hood/upper quarters are all original. For underbody, the bulk of the front frame is original (except the lower sections by the floor supports), as are the front crossmember, what is left of the shock towers, inner/outer cowl, inner/outer rockers, what is left of the trans cross member, shock mount pan, rear rails (except the last two feet), rear torque boxes, and all of the rear inner support metal. Not sure how much that equates to, but I would guess over 50% of the car is new now.
