Yup, very nice headers.  Wheels are Am Racing Torq thrusts. We painted the centers black and rims a grayish weathered magnesium color to keep them looking as close to original as possible for big honkin' 18 wheels. It works.... and helps visually shrinks the wheel size so they don't look like your typical restomod huge bling wheels. Tires are Nitto NT05, 295 rear and 235 front. Ruben is going to have one nice and fast restomod with this one.

Wheels look great! I've been considering changing the grey of my Torq Thrusts to more of a magnesium color. Can you share what prep you did and specific paints used on those wheels?

Great build, definitely subscribing!

Best,
Brent

Thanks!

Your build looks great! Can you post some more pics? Also, what type of setup are you using?

Great question about the back interior area. I wanted to put an R shelf in the back, but with the full roll cage, I'm guessing the shelf would look like Swiss Cheese, if I could even get it to fit. I'm open to suggestions for sure!

The rear interior quarter panels are also a question, as the mini tubs bring the inner wheel well into the space designed for those panels.

Does anyone have any pics of their rear interior where they had to make panel modifications due to mini tubs or a roll cage?

Thanks!  Chug a Lug


Previous owner did 99% of the build, pretty standard - 347, T5 etc - was registered in the US and more of a street/track than race but with nice additions (accusump, 9", racing clutch/flywheel etc), goes like a scolded cat and sounds glorious (stopping is a separate issue Smiley)

Cage is a bolt in (I think it is one of these - http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/Mustang/Suspension/Roll-Bars/Autopower-Bolt-In-Race-Roll-Cage-6-Point-1965-1970-Mustang-Coupe-Fastback.axd) and the trim is cut a little for the rear bars

Rear QTRs trim is what I am not sure about, either get a newish (repop) set from somewhere, leave as it (with holes etc) or strip completely, I also want to remove the rear qtr vent/window at some point so this impact trim as well). Will eventually get a round to a R model dash (current is a hybrid 66 cluster with 65 pod)

A few dodgy pics of inside (rear trim a mess but you can see the bar going behind)

The mock-up block is out and the new engine is in!  I love the dry sump tank placement - right where the battery would have been placed on a stock Mustang.   Chug a Lug

Next, they build the exhaust - 3" oval!  Party on

Thanks! The guys are really thrashing to move it forward.

Side note - Iím planning to take it to the MCA National in McAllen, TX in March 2018 (could they have gone any further south in Texas?!?!) ...AND, Iím hoping to take it to SAAC 43 as well.  Chug a Lug
