Since there's never a better time to be humbled....lol...here's me checking and then swapping parts to see where all the wear is.

And yes, after I got numerous messages including from guys who build race engines for a living (and who scratched there head at me, lol) I did a follow up video, and checked it correctly.

After doing a power steering pump on the wife's off road truck, I played with my new toy (milling machine) for a bit and then got a bit of motivation to work on the mustang by firing it up and testing the line lock, LOL. Now, the garage stinking like exh and burnt rubber, I rolled under it to finish assembling and aligning the nose/fenders. Less than 5 minutes in the wife shows up and says it's really snowing, are you going to plow? Crap...

Ever think things are conspiring against you? LOL!

One step ahead, numerous back.....

I was building my bracket car to get it back on the track after 25+ years and did most of the work, then decided to build it into a stocker.

So, fuel system is complete and working now, but now for a stocker I have to pull the gas tank and install a fuel cell so it will be easier to swap from high test to race fuel when required. Also have to install a bleeder port for the fuel testing. Also, at one time I ran 2 4bbls and although one port is blocked off, I will have to move the fuel lines on the fender well.

Dual batteries and master switch all done, ready to go...but a stocker needs a battery in the front so I'll need to find a battery tray and configure the master to work with a batt in front and a batt in the rear (or just say heck with it and run one batt??)

With the rule on flex plates, I'll have to get one and install it. (didn't need as a bracket car)

On and on it goes and with all the snow and me being plow operator/tech, been hard to get back on the mustang when I'm working on snow equipment as well as the wife's off road truck.

And the whole "posting on the internet instead of being in the garage working because it's so cold out" is having a negative effect as well! LOL!!

Unless you need the weight. One is quick and easy.

And to make it worse, my hottub pump seized up as the storm hit so I was draining water and pulling the pump in the storm, lol. Just got it back together last night. It's back up to 80 so far.

"fun times in the maritimes" lol!

Yeah it's just my paranoia from years gone by. Hit the key for the next round and click. Or sitting in lanes during a shut down and forget to turn stuff off, etc.

Sure sounds like I could fix the issue by paying attention, LOL!

Going over the rule book again, double checking… interior, unless you’re running a roll bar, must have front and rear seats… crap. So now I need a passenger AND a rear seat. And since I’m pulling the batts out of the rear, I don’t need my aluminum rear firewall.

How can I be falling farther behind, the more I do?? Lol!

Going to look at a scrapped mustang tomorrow for the batt tray and possibly seats.

Just ordered a new factory tray, scrap yards have nothing around here.

1979-86 MUSTANG BATTERY TRAY KIT by Daniel Carpenter Reproductions

Item #LRS-10732BK

This battery tray kit includes everything you need to safely secure your 1979-1986 Mustang battery.
Daniel Carpenter Reproductions

Going with single batt up front and pulling the two bus batteries from the rear. Found rear seat in red so I'll use that, just need a red front passenger seat now. (among a thousand other things, lol)

(again, spending a lot to go really slow, LOL!!)
