This car is going to handle very well , that engine being way back makes a big difference plus the Heidts ... Turned out well

Mustang Sally, tell me with you moving the engine and trans so far back, where will the shifter sit ? Is it not going to sit too far back ?

Exciting stuff.. need to get the inner grille surround and outer grille moldings on there to give the proper effect on how the grille is going to look. A word of advice check how those clips go carefully on the outer grill molding they break easily !

Also.. put the front bumper on before the valance its much easier. I see you have it on already but you should take it off and attach bumper 1st.

This is all is fiddly stuff and takes time and easy to damage, but once together it starts looking like a mustang. Awesome

Thanks Brennan!

All advice greatly appreciated. Didn't think about the bumper first but makes good sense. :D

Don't think the shifter should be too much of a problem. We've created a new tunnel to accommodate the rearward position of the motor and for the AOD box being wider than the C4. Fitting a B&M Quicksilver shifter with cable linkage so I'm hoping we'll be able to position it as we want to.

Kudo's I must say you've used the right front clip, correct serpentine kit, love the tappet covers right brakes... all the correct groceries. It's surely costed you an arm and a leg. Coming together nicely.... bet you can't wait to pop that cherry on the 1st spin!

Thanks BTT!
Been buying the parts bit by bit over the past two years. The pain is a little easier when it comes in smaller instalments!!
