Josh, welcome, I am also building a 69 Coupe. I purchased all the front suspension parts from Opentracker Racing. I did the Shelby/Arning front UCA drop, & the Boss 302 chassis mods. I have the roller bearing spring perches, adjustable strut rods, 1" lowering front coil springs & rear leaf springs. I added front power disc brakes & replaced the upper & lower control arms with their blueprinted control arms. I have a mild built 1987 5.0 engine w/aluminum heads & cam from a new Boss 302 crete motor & a 1987 T-5 5spd trans with a 9" Ford rear w/3.50 gears w/trac loc. I am in the process of re-wiring the car with a AAW wiring kit. Other parts have been purchased from NPD, CJ Pony Parts, & Virginia Mustang. As far as chrome trim try to get original Ford trim as it will fit better then the repo stuff. My wife & I just a few months ago moved from southern NJ to southern Virginia so the car is temp on hold. Here is a pic of it as it is today.
