keep up the good work
The smell of soap, makes birds poop.
No matter how pretty she is, someone somewhere is sick of her sh!t...
Its more fun to ride a slow bike fast, rather then a fast bike slow.
my part out...
Removed steering knuckles
Disconnected All balljoints and tie rod ends. (need two new tie rod ends)
Then went to take the control arm off and its stuck between the bracket and the frame
It wont come off and I'm so cold and tired and angry
Ill tackle it tomorrow i guess.
ANYWAY got home from school wrestled the control arms off. And removed the subframe off the car. I'm ordering a complete bushing kit from GAP. PICs up tonight when i get home from work.
ahh ok ok I see man. That's tight then keep up the good work
and to the other guy, if you're going to suggest to do a foxbody build thread then I would ask for it outside of an import forum? lol.
Just a suggestion. Me, personally, I like the 1990 foxbody 5.0. I want one, but I wouldn't suggest building one on this site. If you want something like that go to Htownracing.com
That's a Houston, TX local forum started to accommodate only Foxbodys. Good luck man.
but till then... lol
First i installed all the pulleys back on
the rear engine mounting bracket broke during the crash...soooo...
painted the frame rail.
Sh!tty pic but painted the sub frame
Assembled the coilovers.
Also ordered a bunch of suspension/steering stuff of GAP, tie rod ends, control arm bushings, sway bar bushing, and so on. And also a drum brake rebuild kit.
Work 10:15am to 9pm tomorrow, so i wont be getting anything done'
Ill get a ton of work done saturday, however ill be nursing a pretty extensive hangover.
So not even 13 hours into 2011 I got pulled over driving the mustang. Turns out my parents forgot to get it registered. FML Also didnt have my insurance card with me. So the cop gives me a 510 dollar ticket. Ill get the insurance ticket thing taken off but i still got the 160 dollar one for not having it registered.
Got the fuel lines fabbed up
Installed the fuel tank with its spiffy shiny new straps.
Went looking for rust in the spare tire well...nothing
painted the rear bumper rebar
did the right frame rail
Also didnt get pictures of this but I swapped in the chipped ecu, head unit, steering wheel/airbag, wiper stalks, gauge cluster, and short shifter.

drums were cut at school today, i need new rotors.
i got all my new suspension parts in the mail today
i painted my calipers, and carriers. and sway bar.
I also finally managed to get my tie rod ends off
Well I didnt want to post again without an abundance of pictures. so these are a few from yesterday and today.
Painted and steering knuckles
brake dust covers
Also traded away those stupid "euro" tails for some stock golf tails my plans are to all red the golf tails. And in the mean time i threw the gti tails on the golf....not gonna lie i like it.
then today got home from school to see this set of badboys on my doorstep
seeing my brand new tie rod ends prompted me to get creative to get the PITA old tie rod ends off. Heres how i did it...worked like a charm, took me like 15 second after heating, wish i would have thought of this method earlier.
painted the calipers
aaaaand sway bar
tomorrow I have to have the steering and suspension class press out the old bushing and press in my new poly bushings.
i already started putting stuff back together. All i really did was get the subframe back up. which was still pretty difficult seeing as how i did it by myself by balancing it on my knees. The hardest part was lining up the 4 bolts for the steering rack.
all for now!!
i sold most of the rear setup, plus theres really not a lot of difference between rear drums and rear rotors.
by difference i mean stopping power, obviously there are a lot of differences.
