    Going to make it bigger/better then before so get ready for the feeling of empathy:cry: for my wrecked car turns into feeling of jealousy:nono:. Pics to follow and probably a vid or two. Was trying to finish up my last video to show the paint/cut outs and needed a few drive by scenes to fill in. Looks like now that video will lead into the rebuild.... Pics to follow having issues uploading them for some reason but I will edit/add them later. Was just happy to get the car home as I had issues getting the air ride to charge the system the day of the wreck and with no air in the system no(had air in the back to drop it off) I would have been dragging that thing anywhere I took it. After disconnecting the horn that would not shut off(one thing that made it) I was happy to hear the compressor kick on and the valves fill the bags.

    I am still in need of a parts car. I am in the southern Indiana/ky/Il boarder so if I could find something say between indy/Nashville, from Louisville to st Louis for a descent price I could get it shipped back and get it all started. Any help would be appreciated. I need the front end/air bags of a 94-98 v6/GT/what ever for a good price to make this happen:wave:...

    I will be showing the build and there may be more details on the project on the description of the pics in the timeline area. https://driiive.com/ttocs/1994FordMustangGT/#

    Cincinatti is 4 hrs away so its a bit of haul. I was just wondering if it was close enough to make a quick day-trip out of it as the prius of course takes nearly no gas. might not need it if the roller comes through but I will play that card if I need too.

    Greyhound is great for shipping large/heavy items. They just stick them under the bus. I am sure there is one in the city somewhere, again if we need too.

    yup started the tear down tonight and after getting a lot of the broken pieces out of the way it is not bad at all....

    got the hood/bumper cover off before it got dark.

    Was happy to discover that the battery mounts I made for the trunk held up really well. Can't tell that the batteries moved even an mm, all the braces and still straight. Figured that big boy 55-lb'er might have moved a bit in the impact but not that I can tell. Sad to see that the power pod I made to go behind the pass seat took some damage but it look fixable. The parts car across the river called back today and still has everything from airbags to fenders so I will call him tomorrow and try to work out a price.

    Will see what the shipping cost on a bumper is vs just buying it from the guy I am getting the rest of the parts from. It will be a pia to ship it all out so if I just pick it up from him I hope you are not offended.
