Thanks BCP & Juan, can't wait to finish it within the month for some june shows

Aaron - I encourage anyone to restore an old fox. As you had seen mine in the Gaitherburg Show, it took me and my dad 3 1/2 months of continuous work to get it to that condition on the exterior. In other words: Restorations are alot of fun.. once they're done. Send me some pics of that LX you're eyeballin

sorry "B" , now no offense and I give you an A for effort OP but with all that overspray on stuff, it does not look the best, you should of removed the harness and or the motor completely, expecially if you plan to show it, here is the 89 I just did to show you an example of removing the harness and after reinstall: but then again your finished product may prove me wrong Smile

Sounds nice but we don't have an engine crane nor did I feel like taking the engine completely out as this is a budget car. I'm new to painting, but all the overspray on the wiring harnesses is purpousful, most of them are being repainted black anyways because they were discolored to gray, along with the brake lines. The engine bay on that 89' looks good, great job. I'll be sure to post pics tommorow to show you progress on the "overspray"

5.0 Restoration UPDATE

Post by The92Foxbody on Sat May 15, 2010 2:15 pm

Been working hard this morning. Woke up at 7, started at 8, now taking a break at 2 p.m. Got alot of things done, but i'll let the pics talk for themselves. KEEP IN MIND: we've only done the passenger side, back and front of the engine bay, the driver side looks nasty still, so I cannot wait to dig into that hopefully tommorow.

All criticism/comments welcome!

looks like you are making good progress Smile.....I've never been a fan of the chrome paint look, I've tended to use the Duplicolor "CAST COAT ALUMINUM" spray for a more natural look, but all that matters in the end is you like it, each mustang I have ever seen is a form of art work in it's own and defines it's artist, heck I've had people say when walking by my car and unbeknownst to them I was playing dumb as if I weren't the owner and I've heard people pick my ride apart and say they didn't like stuff on it, in the end what matters is I like it and love driving it Smile

Haha, I thought I was the only ninja that did that! Indeed, I have heard comments that I didn't like to hear but hey, it's there opinion and I won't take criticism to heart Of course, i'm doing this engine to my own personal preferences, but I like hearing other peoples ideas to give me different options before I follow through with something. Thanks for the comment, stay posted!

lol^^^^^^yeah I like to fly incognito too at the cruise inns and shows when I can get to them to see what people have to say, more often than not the comments are positive and the few that aren't are usually people that don't even have a ride to show, to each his own Smile

I think that is awesome!!!!! A father/teenage son redoing a soon to be classic Stang on a low budget, but also making it look decent! Can't wait to see what all your hard work looks like in person.

My Dad and I never had anything to tinker around with and I just helped him with routine maintenance. I wouldn't mind being able to do this with my son in about 8-10 years

New Update

Post by The92Foxbody on Tue May 18, 2010 3:22 pm

Ok, I have a pretty big update on me and my fathers engine restoration. The passenger side is pretty much complete besides some minor touch ups on the wiring harnesses and the radiator hose. We have reached the main reason we started this project, to fix the giant rust hole in the driver side strut tower. It will be taken care of with some welding / Steel















THE PROBLEM:

5.0 Restoration Complete

Post by The92Foxbody on Fri May 28, 2010 9:31 pm

about 98% done. Intake plaque is missing because i was detailing the paint on it. That should be done in about 2 days when I let it dry. This one has come along way and only cost me $320 in paint and some parts. Comments/ Criticism Welcome.

When I got this car, it had that weird materialed line running with just a tube sticking up, it looked ridiculous.. We looked at a stock 5.0 and it had a cap on top, can't find the cap.. so we custom fit the breather on there.. only cost $7.

Dad says it is a "stupid emissions tube" There isn't much to show of it, it just runs from behind the block around the passenger side
