  1. Hey TexasEd, I like your overall vision statement as mine is very similar with a bit of a lean towards the Pro-touring/Restomod vehicle. I wanted more modern drive and conveniences of a modern car, but had to keep the original body with some slight changes that don't stand out drastically, but to make it slightly different. A quick list of modern conveniences: Vintage Air AC Unisteer Power Steering Cobra Disc Brake upgrade FiTech FI TKO600 Transmission with Hydraulic Clutch Setup Upgraded Radio with Kicker Components Street or Track Upgrades Suspension TMI Covered Foxbodies in Mach 1 Upholstery 3 Point Front Seat belts LED tail lights and Halogen Headlights Body Changes: Removed 1/4 Panel Emblems Removed Trunk Letters Removed Rear Wing/Still need to add Front Spoiler Paint Whole Hood and Cowl Flat Black Paint Tail Panel Flat Black Painted on Side Stripe with Body Color Showing through for striping and MACH 1 lettering 17/18in Bullitt Wheel Combo
  2. I will be honest I am not sure on either of those. I think you can do some more research on Vintage Mustang Forum as I think more people have used them over there. I have a generic Radiator that has side tanks so it wouldn't fit on my radiator, but with the stock tanks for the radiator I think it could fit.
  3. Have you looked at maybe using Contour fans? I have seen those used before and may be an option. Something like these: https://lmr.com/item/LRS-8607F/mustang-contour-electric-fan-assembly-79-93
  4. Well spent some time this weekend getting the trunk back together and installed Vintage LED's Tail lights at that same time. MUCH brighter and very nice product. Still have the back up lights and front turn signals to install too. 20200523_112043.mp4
  5. I would recommend call all the different companies yourself. I did that and ended up with Street or Track coil over set up. Shaun was awesome to work with and is very knowledgeable about mustang suspension and can talk through many options that he can offer. I would also price the options yourself as I started looking at just upgraded stock parts and ended up going coil overs based on the pricing and what I wanted from my car. I have no regrets and 100% completely happy with my set up. Car rides awesome and have no issues. Good luck, lots of options out there.
  6. I will be there with my ride most of Friday and Saturday.
  7. This is the part that caught my attention. Unless something is done to that WC T-5, I would be careful with that transmission. They typically are not built to hand that kind of torque unless they are modified. I too have a 445 FE, but opted for the TKO 600, just to be on the safe side.
  8. I have these in mine. Just installed them. Good quality and so far no complaints.
  9. Cool project. Going to be a fun ride with that motor in it. Looking forward to updates.
  10. Never heard of them before this thread. Looks like a decent website. Before you buy any suspension parts I would encourage you to call Shaun at Street or Track. He is very helpful and no pressure to buy his stuff. But he knows mustangs and that is what his business is based on. I talked to him several times before buying anything. He can provide some info on what you are trying to do with your car and offer some options for you. Good luck.
  11. Totally agree. That is why I went with their Phantom set up as well. Pump kept overheating and vapor locking. Drove it recently to the Hot Rod Power Tour Ssop here near me and had no issues, pump ran great and as quiet as can be. I do like have the access under the car as I did have a couple of holes to drill for the lines. Not a bad deal, just have to put something over top of it so I don't have to worry about anything riding on top of the pump set up.
  12. Would figure they do this AFTER I upgrade mine. But a nice option and glad they are listening to potential customers.
  13. WOW that is sweet looking.
  14. That was the same issues I was having with the NC summer heat. Would eventually vapor lock on me. Would have to wait for everything to cool down, then would run again. I upgraded to an Aeromotive In-Tank set up over the winter and so far running good. Haven't tested it it super hot weather yet, but so far done good in the 80's.
  15. I ended up with the Dakota Digital VHX. With the 4 pods being used, It has 6 gauges, for Oil Pressure, Water Temp, Gas and Voltage. The back light is great and no issues with visibility and they have worked great. I will see if I can get a pic soon, one thing I realized I don't have a good picture of.
  16. Welcome to the site and nice progress on the 69. Coupe looks badass too. That is my second favorite body style, next to the 69.
  17. I have heard good things about opentracker and lot of guys are very happy with their product. For any suspension questions I ALWAYS recommend people call Shaun and Street or Track. He is very knowledgeable about anything mustang suspension related and will answer all your questions. I bought my set up from him and talked with him a few times before spending any money and he was always very helpful. He gave me several options for what I wanted out of the car and for what fit my budget. I did go all out on the front setup, but absolutely love and wouldn't change a thing. My car was SCARY to drive before and would beat the crap out of me when I drove it. Much improved over what I had and car drives great. I run 17" and 18" staggered set up, and while it is not pillow soft, it rides great and doesn't beat me up any more. Good luck, there are a lot of options out there.
  18. One show I need to make it to one of these years.
