Got this 1968 Mustang steering wheel, probably aftermarket, cheap
on eBay. Also got a horn button from a '62 Fairlane, but couldnt figure a practical ... Show moreway to mount it, so I gave in to a Grant horn button. Looks good, anyway. Check out those schnazzy aluminum accessory knobs too!
Finally got to install the 4.10s I had laying around when I got my posi in the mail. I always hated only leaving one black mark :-) The old 3.55 open on the left, new posi on the right.
Installed a Transgo shift kit. First time I ever dove into a transmission, not too bad overall, except the small (vital) mistake of setting the manual valve in the wrong position. Good time to install a drain plug.
Crappy pic of a dual electric fan I pulled from a Ford Probe.
Hedman Hedders before and after. Overall , the whole process wasn't as difficult as I anticipated, but it was a pain at times with all that emissions bullshit in there. Bolts came out easy enough from the exhaust manifolds and the right side came out without incident, but the left side required some sawzalling.
Open headers are incredibly, obnoxiously loud, so I went only a day before I threw on these Thrush Turbos. I like these mufflers because they retain the real sound of the engine, unlike Flowmasters and the such which have their own sound.
Here's my air cleaner I made with a K&N filter and the original hoses butchered up a little. For a grand total of $20, I have the same deal as direct from K&N for $200 less, albeit a little less pretty.
Swapped out my instrument cluster with one from an '87 Bronco, which has a tach , and approx. 8k fewer miles :-)
The local junkyard has done me very well. Here's a set of 5(!) 33x12.5r16.5 all terrain tires on 8 lug rims next to
the old wimpy highway's.
Here's the police spotlight I got from the local junkyard for $10. The chrome and mechanics of it are in real nice shape.
I kinda ran over a '97 Grand Prix. What little blind spot I have kicked my ass. Glad I work at a body shop :-) Show Less
