THat's what I like to see the wheel on the (right ) side your on to it mate. :(The body looks sweet now Steve. I've almost got the AC sorted, I'll send you the pics in the next week or so, yet to cut and shut the blower, If you send me just the fan from the taken off the blower motor I'll do your's as well. You have to do this to max air flow, as the vanes go backward when you swap it Left to right.

Dreaded Elec issue still lurking...pushed my budget that far that we've stalled on $2000 to redo a whole new wiring.:_....... Cannot stretch the budget any further, its at its absolute limit. Still don't understand why its so much....yet again, I'm no electrician.

well i em an electronic tech (glorofied electrician :+)  and y so much?
cause they charge $100ph and there is few hrs involved. expecialy if intermittent faults.though i only get paid lot less than 1/4 of that. which sucks.

find a private guy that will do it afterhours for extra dosh.
to save money that what i do for job i cant do myself (which thankfully are not many)

though catch 22 is u got to find a good worker that takes pride in his work and not some butcher that just want the dosh. so recomendations and previous work will be good start to determine a good auto electrician.

mate if u were in SA could have given u a hand with electrical. save u bit of money and help me out spend it on mine. mustang wiring is fairly simple from what i can see.

modern cars lot more complex but i seem to find my way around them easily enough.

i should look into this bit more carefully and get a budget wiring replacement. im sure someone has done this allready. ;+

nice work btw.

Its a full eleanor kit, the only difference is the upper air scoops & brake scoops will be functional. AOI rack, TCP coil overs & 4 link, Willwood 4 spot set up, 390 C6 & 9 inch. Colour I am still tossing up at this stage I am leaning towards a Candy Red & Silver super snake stripes. By Candy red I am talking a special effect 3 layer not Ford Candy Red.

Yes HOK is the go for candys, tossing up between Persimmon or Scarlet over silver. Here is a pic of a sprinter we did in apple red last year, I like it but it is darker than I want.

HOK stuff looks great, the boys at MPA sell it, I went to school with Luke, I've used it on some bikes. Maybe get a  lighter one as you can always put on another coat if you want it darker. I reckon it might be hard to match if you deck it, might have to wet the whole side in perhaps, you wouldn't be able to blend it, it's edge to edge or nothing I'd reckon. There is a 67 in Mustang monthly last year which was like a copper red it was really smart, you may find it on the web site, there was also ona at the Brisbane hot rod show in a red HOK, it to was really hot looking even on a standard body.

That is exactly the colour I am after. I saw that car on Ebay about 18 months ago & thats when my mind started ticking over about how I would like to do a Mustang.

This is the easy part, its getting everything - a/c, wipers etc working properly that is doing my head in. Shaunp has given me some good tips regarding all that which is very handy.
