Got the body off my explorer today, so I can get to the engine now! It'll look a lot cleaner once all that fuel injected crap is gone!



I'll probably wait to pull it until I get all the front end put together on the Mustang. I mainly need a front disc brake kit, I found one company that sells everything including spindles for 525$. They seem to be highly recommended by all the Mustang guys. It's basically a Granada conversion, except they make their own spindles for the correct '66 geometry, so I end up with larger rotors and floating single piston calipers.

Pulled the rear end I'm going to use out of the donor car the other day. Came out of a 70's Maverick. Got it torn apart, stripped down to bare metal, and painted the front half. Also went down and got all new drums, brake shoes, wheel cylinders, springs and hardware, gaskets, etc. Some of it is out of state and will be in next week. The most interesting part is the differential has 4.20 gears, I can't find anyone who's heard of them before.





Also decided that since I'm going to be running 4.20's, a C4 is definatly out of the question. I got a 1989 AOD that needs a rebuild, came out of a Thunderbird I think. Should make that rear gear much more tolerable. Someone robbed a couple of linkage parts, so I'm going to rob the linkage from a Fox Body AOD so I can use a TV rod for a 2bbl instead of a cable.

I found a guy that had a bunch of Mustangs that had all the glass I needed, so I went to check out the cars to see if he had any other parts. He had a 1969 El Camino with a 383 stroker and a 4 speed sitting in his yard that I was checking out. Long story short, I ended up trading the Mustang for it. It needs about as much bodywork as the Mustang did (more rust then dents however), but it runs and drives, has a 4 speed which I wanted originally, and is easier to find parts for (to me, anyway). So, hopefully I will be driving this by next summer, still holding to the same plan as the Mustang, which is drive it while slowly fixing it up.

on a side note, do you still have those new lower ball joints/control arms? if so how much do you want for them?
