    Quick update on the Tbird:
    Did the battery relocate and installed a ford Taurus electric fan. Pos relay kit I originally bought was garbage so I ordered a flex-a-lite 45amp kit. (Still waiting for it to come in)

    Also bought a set of upr front coilovers but unfortunately they wouldn't work. Castor camber plates bolt holes didn't line up and sleeves were too small to fit over the Tbird shocks. Just ordered drop springs.
    wheels may come next.

    You can slot the strut towers to put 79-89 Mustangs caster camber plates on the T-bird

    Haha! Thanks man, I like to think so but my friends and family beg to differ. My pops tells me to stop putting money in my cars but at the same time, suggests I need wider wheels on the rear end. Haha! I just simply love the fact that I have a car you rarely see on the roads.

    The rear axle isn't too far forward but still wouldn't go that route, but that launch was sweet though. Lol! Just realized what the plate on your tbird said. I like!

    Welp! After installing electric fan, new aluminum radiator my head gaskets decide to blow. Old car, was bound to happen. So the ol Tbird is down till I can get my other two cars Rollin then I'll be in search of new heads, cam etc etc. I miss driving the damn thing already.

    Been a while since I've had an update buuuuuuuuut..............so this happened. Got it off a buddy for $1500. Looks like poo but is a little monster. Not sure if I wanna swap the drivetrain into the Tbird to avoid the headache of repairing the body and interior on this thing or keep it as in and just fix the head gaskets on the bird. Decisions decisions!
