Mother sucker...

  1. well...

    From Noon o'clock til 2 AM last night... I was non stop wiring and whatnot... Took me 2 hours to get my subs in that trunk, they don't fit... idk how the heck I got the dern things in there... well, I do but it sure as heck wasnt fun...

    Well, had to rewire everything...

    Whoever had the car before needs to be shot... he ****** rigged the ENTIRE CAR... Instead of running wires under the carpet and under moldings, he ran wires EVERYWHERE... Between seats, weaved around stuff... If you looked in the car, you had to see at least one wire... they were everywhere... So I ripped all his crap out, and found all these stupid ricer switches and lights... And I put in some brand new speakers, got everything wired, and spent 6 hours wiring the head unit...

    The head Unit was a PITA... I finally figure out the correct wiring with the help of my brother, and the subs work, but not the speakers... I'm guessing the head unit is bad, its the one I was using in the old mustang... So I guess when I wrecked I messed something up...

    Now, not only did this ying yang wire the car worse then a monkey on cocaine and speed... He completely fucked the radiator... completely...

    It appears that it was leaking at one time... so what does he do? He patches the holes with SILICONE... and fills the radiator with that leak fixer goopy crap... he must have used damn near a gallon of the crap cause the radiator is clogged up... The water in there looks like its mixed with oil, but theres no water in the oil... So it looks like he clogged every little hole and all the bigs holes too, cause the water pump is dry... oh yeah, the bleeder on the rad is open, nothing comes out... rofl...

    Sucks, I was lookin forward to driving this thing today... Tomorrow I'll change the rad, oil, flush everything out, get a new head unit, then I want to restore the paint on the bumpers...

    I wanna get this sucker ready to make a trip to Atlantic City for the SKYNYRD concert...

  11. The other mustang is sitting in the garage... Me n my pops check the auctions twice a week for a suitable parts car...

    When one comes up, I will pick it up, and the rebuild will commence... the thing is, SN95s are very rare round here... especially 302 powered sn95s...

    Until then, project fox is officially in gear...

    project fox will go in phases...

    Phase 1... save $$$$$
    Phase 2... find V8 fox parts car for powertrain... (easy, foxes are a dime a dozen round here)
    Phase 3... the quickest and most fun... gutting and having mustang sex to make a damn fine fox...

    I already have my parts and to-do lists...

    --To-do--
    Paint BAB
    Rid her of the stupid luggage rack
    get the stereo squared away
    find parts car (302, T5 or T45, 8.8 rear, + Crossmembers and whatever is needed to git r done)

    --Parts--
    hood (not sure yet)
    springs, shocks, swaybars, CC plates (all eibach + MM stuff)
    GT40 heads
    Cam
    4bbl carb + intake manifold
    hooker long tubes
    offroad H
    Borla muffs + pipes out the sides
    3.73s

    Really, this is a cheap build... the the mods will cost me about 2k... the parts car will cost under 800 bucks... and I'll do everything myself... I want to wait til I got everything before I start swapping crap... do it right the first time around...

    When i first bought my car i noticed that when i stepped on the brake i could hear the secondary fuel pump rev. ??? The jackass had it wired to the brake lites for power. :eek: I realised this only after going to the track like 3 times. Good thing they make you turn your lites on at Englishtown racetrack or BOOM! Ummm can you say Larroca? Cause thats who did it. (NJ guys will recognise that) I still have 2 toggle switches on my console. 1 is fogs and the other is who the hell knows what. It has power cause it lites up when i turn it on. It replaced the coin holder. :dunno: Ejection seat maybe???
     
  15. Steve... I'd pull it apart and take a look at it if I was you...

    Some people wire shit so uncomprehendably stupid that many times the wiring may be a fire hazard....

    ah man... Well I picked up a new radiator today... 25 bucks... she's all fixed... Now I'm gonna flush it out a few times and go out n buy my head unit...
