Project Rustang~

So my buddy bought a 98 GT and we are going to attempt to restore this thing. It only has 40K on the motor, but no transmission and needs a ton of work. If anyone knows where I can find a decently priced T45 or T56 tranny I would be much appreciated.


Getting her prepped for painting. We're thinking doing a 2 tone Gray/Black theme. Updates to come...

Eh. Mustang.

Are you painting the thing yourself? It'll be pretty cool to see your work being done, if you keep including pics. Good luck!

lol, for sure. Having problems with getting the transmission in though. Got some new heads for it as well. We had it cranked up using ether just to make sure everything works.

Update.........She's up and running. New tranny and short throw installed. The motor runs much stronger than I thought it would. I honestly didn't think this thing had a hope in hell of firing up. Got some 04 heads to put in as well. Also found a great deal on some Cobra R wheels, a Saleen rear bumper and a Xenon front valence. After alot of body work I layed down the base coat. Not perfect, but for the environment and tools I had I think it came out better than expected so far. The color is Saphire Blue Metallic. 1st time ever painting a car and all I can say is IT'S A PAIN IN THE ASS, but it was a ton of fun and a hell of a learning experience. Sorry for the crappy phone pics. More to come..........
