Just some quick pics of another project I just finsihed up. My good friend Brian wanted to keep the out side looking original and wanted a custom suspension and drive train...well we are half way there and hopefully by spring the drive train will match the awesome look and stance of this sweet 86 GT...:thumbsup:

the high way pic is what it looked like with old wheels and the others are from today...

Mods so far=

Complete upr adjustable coil over set up -front and rear
stange adjustable struts and shocks
90 GT spindles
5.0 resto five lug swap with drums (for now):lol:
New 17x8 and 17x 10 wheels...

Plans for th future include a much bigger crate engine from Ford racing and some other goodies...

I love the way this turned out and makes me want to finish my 93lx....maybe soon when i get everyones elses cars done......:lol::lol:

Looking good, Chet! With the big motor he will be really glad to have the coil-overs and brake upgrade if this is a cruising car, not a dragster. If he plans on driving the car hard, I would hope he has steel CC plates rather than billet. This is from hard gained experience by several friends of mine. I have to say though, I prefer the old wheels. To me the gold appearance clashes with the silver of everything else.

Cool....Looks Great

Chet..I have a rear disc conversion Master Cylinder that is brand new. Brain can have it for free if he wants so he is that much closer to the rear disc swap. Just let me know.

Actually I just checked I have two new MCs if you need one for one of your projects. They are basically a SVO MC or what they ran in the Lincolns back then--so not plastic ones. I had one in my 90 and I just sprayed it black.
