    Check out the link below. I stumbled on it a couple weeks ago but I am not sure how old it is. Fatman Fab is making shorter control arms for the crown vic front end. This is just a press release but should be useful for easing at least the front wheel sizing issues you are facing.

    Ok took the summer off of this project to finish some other things, but back to it now.
    Picked up a t45 transmission from a 2000 mustang because the decision to run an auto was killing me inside.

    Plan on going through it strengthening some things and upgrading the syncros so it will shift at the higher rpm the coyote will run.
    Also picked up the wheels I'll be running:

    Picked them up for a good deal locally. They are spec'd to fit a 2015 mustang which is the perfect size and offset that I need. Specs are 20 x 9.5 front and 20 x 10.5 rear.
    Here's where I'm at today in the build:

    Will a T45 hold up? Maybe run a T3650?

    Probably not long term no. Some guys have used them with success. Using it mostly because it was cheap and available. Eventually will be swapped out for a t56

    Had a little bit of time in the garage tonight so I threw the rear end back under the car to check and make sure the rims would fit. Seem like it's going to work out just fine which is a relief!

    Started the bodywork on this car last weekend. Had some rocker panels bent up and started roughing in the drivers side quarter panel. I want all the gaps and everything set while the body is still on the frame before I pull everything back apart to be cleaned and painted. Still doesnt look like much but progress is definitely being made.

    Welded the rocker panels in and I'm pretty happy with the fitment. Next job is to weld in the quarter panel. It needs to be butt welded because they dont make full quarter panels for this car. What's everyone's opinion on butt weld clamps like pictured? Is there a better way to do it?

    I use those, but I almost prefer magnets more since you can get a tighter fit and it seems to help the panel be flush with the outside better. Eastwood has a magnet kit for panel work. Either way seems to work fine though if you really take your time.
