    I bought this mustang a few months ago with a bunch of issues with the intention of fixing it up, mostly putting it back to stock, and slapping on a body kit. Last week was the first step in the process. The throw out berring was shot from day one so i replaced that, ford racing of course, got a luk clutch kit since it was already apart (didn't want anything hard to push, my knees are shot from crashing motorcycles and such) and a steeda flywheel. It also needed some tires so got those put on (tire guy gunned them on to about a million ftlbs). The wheels also looked like hell so i had 60$ to blow so i got some paint supplies and did that today.

    this is what i was working with

    Threw the wheels into a dump trailer hooked up to an old tractor, you can use a nicer tractor, it's up to you. You can also choose to have your german shepherd assist, it's your call.

    This jd5425 worked for me to haul them to a pressure washer

    No idea if this shit works but figured I'd give it a try since the wheels werw masked off

    Also painted the calipers white because they were red and silver before, as in some were red and one was silver.

    Radiator support, missing the front 5mph bumper, interior was painted but not prepped so it's pealing, needs a new dash, trunk is gutted but I'm working on that now, no fender liners in the front, little odds and ends.

    Next up will be the headlight retrofit and redoing the trunk.
