Thanks.
Today I installed the rear interior quarters, speakers and swapped out the shitty steering column from a better one. Car now runs fine with the exception of a leak at one of the header gaskets. For the meantime I purchased a set of BBK shorty headers, just stripped them down and will paint them flat black with high temp paint.
Rear seats arent mounted, just mocked up until I get my brackets.

Update- Swapped in a new radiator and hoses, also today I received my amp, wiring kit and door speakers. Now I can put the door panels on. Just deciding on a head unit.

Anyone interested in those corbeau rear seats? I decided I am going to do a rear seat delete instead. Also I fixed that one seat, so it doesnt look messed up either.

Removed the intake manifold and disconnected the exhaust manifolds. I picked up some BBK shorty headers, cleaned them up and painted it flat black. I have those mocked up, got to rework the mid pipe to get the headers to fit properly. Also ordered some Ford Racing valve covers, valve cover gaskets, and header studs. After removing the manifold, there was tons of leaves and grime just caked in by the injectors.

Little update, installed the exhaust last week, sounds pretty sweet. Yesterday I went to the junkyard, as I am walking in the fork lift is bringing a fresh 94 gt to the mustang section. Went over and scooped up the front spindles, hubs, and calipers.
Next I will be looking for a rear 5 lug axle and upgrade the axle shafts and gears.
