    Default WL: 88 Mustang Panda

    Figured I'd share my junk....

    1988 Mustang LX Convertible

    When I bought it......10 years ago.

    windshield trim painted white

    All trim painted white

    Added Ponies

    Switched to Cobra Rs

    Got a New Hood

    Painted hood

    New Seats

    Put this thing on

    Blew it up once

    Fixed it

    Blew it up again

    Put in DSS 306 w goodies, Tubular k member, lowered it

    Why? BC Racecar

    Bought these

    Killed a Panda family, made an interior out of it

    Moved, 306 ran like shit, sold it, tore car apart for full resto


    Thought i had a jeep

    Had spaghetti for dinner

    Made my own engine bay panels


    upgraded to 5 lug

    Made custom brackets for stock length discs

    got cool stuff for the rearend

    Did some body work, smoothed everything

    Removed Rust

    Got some new wheels

    Hate chrome so dipped the centers.


    Spots where i fixed the rust and body work that was messed up...




    Engine collection...
    351w complete on the left. 351w high nickel 74 block in the middle. 302 shortblock on the right.

    Had to to see if theyd even look good....itll be up much higher than that though

    Did a few things this weekend.....
    -Installed 95 Mustang GT Ball Joints
    -Installed SN-95 Spindles
    -Installed 02 Saleen Calipers/Discs
    -Installed Front Shocks/Springs
    -Installed the Rear End
    -Lakewood Lower Control Arms
    -KYB GR-2 Shocks
    -Factory Upper Control Arms (changing)
    -FMS C Springs
    Pushed the car out and cleaned out the garage as a whole, now i have room to sand/prime/paint





    Sanded a LOT. Still have a lot to go. about 1/2-3/4 of the car is now completely sanded and ready for primer. Hopefully this week i can get the rest of it sanded and a coat of primer on the car. Also made fender stands to paint the fenders off the car......This car has Sooooooooooo much trim.




    Just a first base coat of primer. NEed to sand it down, look for body work if any and then shoot another coat over it. Then its ready for paint. I took the doors off, I will be painting the doors/fenders separately. The hood was freshly painted before storage, and the trunk lid is staying the way it is until i can figure something else out.




    Fenders are done! next up Doors, Trim, And Bumper covers.



    More body work.....ugh

    Thanks Jim. Its been like......6 years since Ive driven it. Moving into a house and doing the family gig takes its toll on toys. Had to sell my spare mustang and my motorcycle this past year as well. Oh well. Ive done more work in the last two months on the car than i have in the past 4 years.

    I remember this car. Glad to see it didn't get sold off, like so many others have done.

    I always like the white wheels on that thing. You should powder coat those saleen wheels white.
