      I am down in Leander, just north of Austin, (out of the crazy).

      Last piece of the puzzle showed up today.







      Exhaust went in so danged easy. Less than 45 minutes, by myself, with cutting 2 of the pipes to length. Still need to adjust and tighten it up. Going to clamp it till I can get it to a shop to put either a flange or vbands on it. I would definitely recommend this exhaust to anyone, incredible look and fit.





      Gas goes in tomorrow and then I begin testing everything out. Might start it tomorrow.

      Awesome. Nothing like the rush of the first start after all that work.

      Cool. Nothing like the feeling of joy/accomplishment when the engine starts the first time.

      Engine ran fine but would not rev above idle. Sent the PCM to FRPP and they said it was bad. Sent out another no questions asked. Great customer service. Hopefully I will drive it, with goggles on, (LOL), this week.

      New PCM came in but it still wouldn't rev above idle. Checked several things and the pedal was good, TPS was good but it was like it had no signal. Tracked down two wires, (both blue), to the pedal that were acting opposite of the way they should. A few calls to Ford Racing tech and they sent out a diagram. Sure enough pin 5 and 6 were backwards wired. Swapped the wires out, viola!

      It sure felt good even without any glass in the car, dash or interior. This thing is a beast and I barely got on it.

      Finished welding up the trans tunnel and the hushmat, (everywhere but under the drivers seat but its coming out to out carpet in). Then put the bulbs in the brake lights and suddenly realized I am finished with things I can do until it gets back from paint. Sooooo, next weekend it goes to my painter. Woo hoo.

      I also ordered fold down rear seats and some new exterior stuff last night. Its amazing how fast it came together. At the end of last July I pulled the engine and trans to get started.

      Let her outside to work on her tan after driving it around the neighborhood a few miles. The T-56 was a great move. Smooth as silk.

      What's being done by your painter ? If you've said already, I apologize.

      The original plan was a HOK candy Brandywine with ghost Boss 302 stripes but I have toned it down and am just going back to the original paint like it is now. The PO did a pretty rough job of the paint that is on it. Its going to look awesome when it is done.

      Its been a busy week at work but I managed to get all the AC duct installed and most of the electrical hooked up. Stockpiling parts right now prepping for paint. My fold down seats came in today.



      The original dash pad was shot so I ordered a new one from original Ford tooling. It fits like a glove.







      Next up is my MTF gauge pod and glove insert. I have been driving it atleast once a day making sure everything works. I forgot to add a fuel line check valve and that is a problem. I will be changing that next week.

      Unfortunately not much has happened recently. I have driven it around the neighborhood a few times. One smokey burnout.

      I have been trying to find a paint and body shop with time but its been tough. Decided to go ahead and do the remaining sheetmetal work myself and get the body ready for paint. I can do most of it but there is no way I am gonna spray it. I took it to a buddies shop who does collision work to get some tips on what needs to be done first.

      Well crap. Looks like time to strip it to bare metal and do some more sheet metal work. I hate surprised.



















      Nice cutouts in the hood for the scoop turn signals. Smdh
