    I just went through all that...your paint looks really good by the way, mine is red too. Is this your first time doing it? Let me know if I can help. I rebuilt my engine for the first time just by doing research and asking. Did a lot mistakes but everything turned out to be fine.

    Thanks for your offer of help thats a nice gesture and i appreciate it very much Im not painting it i just pulled off the fenders and bumper to be familiar with the process because i might* paint the next one but im kinda thinking twice about that...

    Details on the car are what you already know fully forged internal engine na 290hp the plan is to get the engine running na in the white convertible correctly then do mods one at at time instead of all at once so if something goes wrong i can source it to the last mod instead of being lost in a sea of changes... end result desired is a stiffened chassis clean but simple convertible street car with a relatively unorthodox exterior asthetic style and an even more relative to mustang standards unorthodox powerplant being a boosted v6 ..with all the technology these days with boost control and cooling techniques im looking forward to incorporating alot of the little tricks guys are using to squeeze out power from the 6

    Got the engine out in record time it was a true thing of beauty literally the same day i get a trophy here on v6 mustangs for being on here for 1 year named "rookie no more" lol and about 1 minute after i read that and was just soaking in how coincidental the trophy came on the same day the engine came out a rouge lightning bolt slammed down a block away completely rocking my shop like a bomb went off! It was so crazy i thanked god for his blessing. Then i went and ate a 50 dollar 12 oz beef tenderloin steak to celebrate lol ..it was a good day

    Next up is to take out the dash in the red car and get familiar with that process..
    I have literally no fear any more because the gopro is watching everymove i make its incredible gonna try to get some of the footage together and uploaded so you guys and whoever else can follow along..

    This will be a non edited run what i brung type video the collaboration movie will come when its all over and the white car is complete..
    Thanks for watching

    Its a work of art. Its a very unique cage. Unfourtunately the creator is no longer with us.. RIP Russel. His memory and legacy will live on however keeping me safe and keeping the chassis stiff bending corners with the top missingI

    Yes i got the white car in the shop im swapping the maximum motorsports kmember and flaming river manual steering rack that came with the red car so i can get the red car out (junk it i guess yeah) and start focusing on the white car..

    Recommend you keep the power steering stock setup. Better drivability. Flaming River manual steering rack will be stiff when used to park a car. K-member switch is a good replacement and saves about 80 lbs on the front end. Also think the red car rear end may be an upgrade from the 7.8 stocker. Just pull the pumpkin cover and see if upgrades are visible. It may have had a upgrade differential, bearings, axles maybe.
