So some of you know that I'm building the falcon after collecting parts through the deployment. Currently working on the in floor frame connectors and replacing the rot in the floors thanks to Joey and the use of his shop and his experience abs expertise.

Very cool!

That frame work interests me. :yes:

When I get the cash up, I'd like to stiffen the frame slightly on my Dodge Dakota 4x4, so I'll be eye-balling this as you progress on the build! :up:

And thanks for the motor pr0n. My favorite part of any build of course. :yum::love:

Was able to cut the floor pans that I got to fit...still need some finesse and the angle irons along the box beam to the floor. There is some other cancer that needs to be cut off and replaced. Glad I'm doing all the work I am able todo snd very grateful to joey for helping me out.

Got the intercooler 8bf69e00bc5a016425cc1519826d25a9.jpg

Was thinking a different ways of mounting it. I have a mustang chrome bumper just no gravel shield and also have a fiberglass shelby front end.

Or just stick with stock appearance and tuck it behind the grill

Either way you go itll look slick, just dont do what I did on the Mustang and have it sticking out like a sore thumb!  I like the first pic you posted but the R style valance looks good on there as well!  Its either that or just cut out the necessary pieces from the stock setup and make it look clean.

I had a pumpkin with a 28 spline diff that had 3.55 gears. That rearend came with 3.73. I am swapping to the 3.55 since I'll be boosted but keeping the limit slip diff

Haha yeah I'm going to have to take at least a week or 2 off the car. I have my daughter due in for school break and Easter and the fiancé has moved here... need to just clean up the garage around the car hit the pause button. Really wanted to drop the front suspension and steering .

I have all the parts sitting on my table waiting togo on the car. I'll have to remember to take some pics of the suspension, brakes and steering components ..985fc6c2c5060e978fb5ef3eef43470f.jpg

I have her all jacked up and just need to get going with the impact to drop it all off.cc40a6fd06e3e98e4b487e4f556e982d.jpg
