BAM I do own a mustang! Life played me a struggle card for nearly 10yrs and lately this has changed. I must have delt an Ace...or at least a step up from a 2 (2 being the worst). It feels great wrenching on her again! Although no tools have been used for this photo. Im cleaning up a mess. In the basement garage, unattended for 4years has collected some dust. Not a penny to my name could I get a car cover, I had to sacrifice. Cats, spiders, and saw dust added the only protection to the 125,000mile paint. Plans of now Clean! Ive pulled all the wheels off and scotchbrite scrubbed all the rust hazed steel and cast iron components residing under the fenders for a thick coat of black spray paint. The wheel wells plastic got hosed with pledge to bring a shine back. And for what ever reason, the previous owner installed "YELLOW" lowering springs. I dont plan to switch anything out, but dont want yellow accents around the car. Any ideas? Im thinking shoot the black rattle can in that direction. I got into the engine bay only to find an ocean of road grime covering everything. I started off dry wiping 1st and in the more difficult areas I used a light scouring pad. I fint want to use wet cleaner cause of a bigger mess or smearing. The dry meathod seem to work well as long as dry clean towels were used. The engine sits on the stand still awaiting a few upgrade components before I button it up. I told myself, it will sit untill I get what I want. I didnt want to use the same identical build. I wanted more, I want to push myself more with building. An broken exhaust valve spring is the reason for the tare down. No damage was done otherwise, just a broken spring. And to add,.....the spring was aftermarket. Im convinced stock springs are indestructible!! Next up, probably a different header panel. One headlight mount is broke for no repairable fix (at least I dont think so). This explains why my driver light would dance at night driving.
