Yesterday we got the motor back in and figured out the driveshaft needs to be shortened 6 inches. Also got the dashboard and disassembled it for cleaning up. lot of rust on the faded guages. Gonna be tough to do.

Nice progress
Love building rat rods, driving mustangs, and building websites.

Thanks Hotwheels. Finished the front end. Now to get it aligned. Got a little more done today. Got the front mounts figured out now just need to build them. We cut 1 coil off the front springs. It helped the stance a ton.

Well as you saw in the other post we got something done again. Got the wiring figured out, floor built and the tranny line built and routed. Also got the console wired up minus the radio.
