      Yes, just need to get them posted. Between the crappy winter we have had this year, work travel and a new baby things have slowed a bit. I did finish up most of the front bumper molding in the Mustang unit. Currently working on the crossmember for the 3650 Tranny, the remote shifter is a pain in the butt. I promise to dig up some pics and get them posted.

      However long you think your project will take, double it and you might be halfway right.

      Finally a few updates:

      Over the winter I modded the 65 Mustang valance/bumper to fit the Falcon. This required stretching the bumper 1.5" per side to align with the Falcon fenders. I cut the wings off of the bumper and will need to narrow it about 1" per side to align perfectly with the Falcon body line in the fender. I also cut an opening below the bumper in the valance for better airflow to the soon to be mounted Fluidyne Radiator.

      Here are a few pictures during different mock-ups and in the process of welding it up.

      I picked up a reproduction 70 Boss 302 front spoiler. The width is just about perfect but this is the widest of any of the early mustangs so it will have to do. I fabbed a few custom clips to hold the ends. What do you think? Once on the ground I think it will really add some aggression to the front end. I still need to final weld and grind the bumper, but at least it is all starting to come together.





      Funny how with alittle modding you can get parts from multiple years of mustang to work well together, and on a Falcon none the less

      Now that Wisconsin has finally warmed up I plan to try to spend more time on the car. Next task will be replacing the floor pans, mount the new radiator, and then begin the process of replacing the floor pans. I looked under the car today and unfortunately there is just no way I will be able to get the exhaust past the 4-link at ride height, so time to figure out if I go with side exit exhaust or just dump it before the axle.

      I just have turn downs right now. But, was thinking about cutting the floor above the axle and making some recesses for the exhaust to run through to get by the axle. What are your thoughts on that?

      How loud are the turn-downs? Why the reason to change?

      I know with my set-up the crossbar for the 4-link is the major impediment, it would require reworking the bar if I wanted any chance of fitting the exhaust out the back. I really want a rear exit, but will have to take a closer look and do some meauring and allot of "figuring."

      I hate turn downs (have the temp rigged on mine). They sound great from outside the car but suck from inside. I'd run them out from under it somehow, maybe Spintech oval tube will work.

      This is how I would do mine if I did side exit



      One note on bumper: I would create a "cap" to finish the bumper to the body.

      Not sure I follow, there is a cap between the chrome bumper and the front of the car, it is the Falcon piece modded and welded to the mustang piece. It might be hard to see in the pics because it is black. Once the grill is installed everything will be pretty buttoned up.

      Cap the end of the mustang bumper, bring the end around to the fender to close off the bumper

      Ok, now I see what you are refering to. Yes, I actually am going to narrow the bumper roughly an inch per side to get rid of the overhang and thus eliminate the are you are refering to. I thought about "capping" it but there is no real elegant way to do this. There is a body line on the Falcon that aligns perfectly with the piont on the bumper, thus if I narrow the bumper it should all align and look pretty close to as if ford did it from the factory, or at least that is the plan.

      Good eye on picking up this detail.

      Ahh yes that will look good. I thought you already had it completely narrowed. Carry on!

      Nice work so far! Love the mods to the front valance/bumper. Also like the gun pic in the imageshack album, lol

      Thanks, my initial ideas for the bumper are finally shaping up. Yep, that is my Ruger Scout, .308 Hog gun.

      They are a little loud, and that's just been while moving the car around in the drive. I would rather them exit from underneath.

      Good to know, well I will just have to figure out how to either get them around the rear suspension or go with a side exit.

      Few progress update pictures. The front end is starting to come together, I dig the Boss front spoiler. Most of my effort is currently going to the floor pans and fabbing a new trans tunnel, as soon as I am far enough along and it looks good enough not to be ashamed of I will snap a few pictures.

      let me know what you think and if there is anything you would change on the front end. Right now it is just slighly more than tacked together so if I make any changes, now is the time to do it.

      Double stack 4x6 square headlights, other than that I guess it looks good.
