      Ive decided to go a different route. Im starting with an all original 67 390GT. The plan is to lighten up the front end to within 50 pounds of a 5.0 which is pretty easy to do. Im still not 100% on which way i want to go with the build. Front end needs complete rebuild. I definitely want wider 255(ish) tires up front with 285(ish) rears. Electric R&P is a must. I would love to eliminate the shock towers. (Worst engineering design ever!)Name:  3E1D5939-AB29-4A42-928D-001427294D47.jpg

      I've always loved those old Cougars. They have a more refined look than the Mustang they're based on. Unfortunately, a full electric R&P is going to be a difficult add-on. The electric rack didn't come along until after CANBUS data, and (PLEASE someone correct me if I'm wrong!) so far as I know nobody's cracked the CANBUS/BCM connection well enough to use CANBUS-controlled accessories like electric racks.

      The solution I'm going with on my truck project is a manual rack and pinion with a Corolla electric column assist unit mounted to the firewall. This unit can either be controlled by a rheostat that lets you control the amount of assist by turning a knob on the dash, or you can rig up a speed sensor to automatically control assist by speed. I'm going to use one of these boards to control mine. Unfortunately, parts are on a shelf right now and I won't have this worked out until a year or two after I get my truck back from the frame shop. I was initially concerned with using a power steering unit for a 2700lb car on a 4000lb truck, but I think it will work because the Corolla is a front wheel drive and the truck is rear wheel drive, and the Corolla power steering has to cop with turning wheels under constant power. The extra force required to turn a powered wheel should be close to the same as the force required to turn a heavier unpowered wheel. Plus, I'm aiming to get the truck down closer to a Corolla's weight.

      That being said, if someone comes up with an HP-Tuners-like way to easily manipulate CANBUS stuff before I get mine built I'll probably change directions. An electric rack would be superior to a manual rack with an EPS box. It would be lighter, with all the weight lower down. Also, look under the Suspension section, there's a sticky there called "Toyota FRS Electric Power Steering in an A Body" discussing electric power steering.

      That color combo really looks good with the wheels. Is that a custom mix blue?

      I am not sure if that question was directed to me, but my car is the original color, Gulfstream Aqua.
      Thanks.

      The main goal was to run the Silver State Classic, and some standing mile events.

      I'm a new member and figured I would add some photos of a recently finished 66 fastback build.
      Long term project but pretty satisfied with the results.
      Hope I've attached the photos correctly.
