Also you have to upgrade those drums on the back. The fronts are going to need some help slowing the beast down once your done.

Well that is a long term goal. I plan to stick with my current engine power for a while.  Gotta make it put the power to the ground and handle well now

Looks good and I have to ask how was the door handle install? Did you use the rivets or go with a screw/nut ? I've got door handles to do soon.

Rivets. If you have the right size gun for it, it's a 10 min install not even


EDIT:

My passenger side door is apparently an aftermarket handle (its metal, whereas oem is plastic) and it has nuts and bolts holding it in.  I decided to stay oem with rivets.  The guy at the DIY shop in PA had rivet guns but not for the 1/4" rivets that are required with the handle.  So he bought a pneumatic rivet gun that holds 1/4" rivet barrels... just so I could use it.  Taking off the stock handle requires a punch and a drill and 3/8" bit.  All togther its probably a 20 min job.  

I used this as instructions: http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/LRS-22404K/79-93-Black-Outer-Mustang-Door-Handle-Kit
