    before i repaint it i want to cut the door skins off and re skin them without the body lines so they match the rest of the car.....lol I figure i'll prep and prime one or two panels at a time

    Do you do your own painting Mark?

    I bet that intake setup is going to make some great power, I cant wait to see some numbers outta this thing.

    Yup, my old converted horse stable is a one shop auto shop I went to school for and worked mechanics, body, restoration, customizing and painting for 11+ years

    From what "they" say, the Proflo showed a 30hp gain at 6,500 rpm over the stock intake . It also ported out the runners and port matched them to heads so if I ever get it on a dyno I hope to beable to do alittle bragging lol

    The hood doesn't quite fit the 66 Mustang, but the stang makes a pretty good work bench... Can't wait to get back on that project code named "Hostang"

    It takes alittle while to clean and plastic everywhere, but after a few hours the shop transforms into my paint booth. Here are a few more pics of paint and where I cut the body into about 20 pieces to get the full widebody.

    the brake conversion is all finished, bleed and the pedal has a good feel to it, just need to finish everything else so i can test them.

    test fired the car the other night and it came right to life and idled at about 850 rpms (still needs lots of tuning) but sounded pretty smooth....only problem was I had a coolant leak so had to pull the drivers side head back off (small scar that has been on the face of the head where i hit it with the mill head) ran it with no problems after a small dab of RTV was applied last time but forgot it this time.
    so now the motor is back together for a second time lol will be firing it back up later this morning.
    getting ready to go back out here and do some body work on the hood and try to adjust the tierods now

    I'm about to make you sick lol
    Bought the 404 shortblock with all the forged internals assembled with all ARP bolts/studs for $2,400. The guy had between 5,000-10,000 miles and 10 passes on the strip with it running low 10s. He tore it down, checked it out, reassembled and torqued everything...look new with 0 wear but broken in.
    I did all the port/polish on the heads and intake, and a friend helped me with the milling. Right now for everything including the intake, mastercylinder, rack, gaskets ect I'm running right under $4,500 for the build.

    I sent you email last night with my number if you have any questions give e a call!
