Hello this is my first post since joining yellow bullet. I have a 1989 Foxbody mustang that I have had since I was fifteen. This was my first car going into highschool that my father bought me back in 2015. This car was originally just your typical stock 5.0 five speed with a 4.10 gear. So since April 2016 I decided that I would tear the car down and turn my car into a nice drag/street car (which was a awful idea lol). This build has been going on now for four years and I am finally getting close to the car being a roller again and hearing it run. The engine in the car is a 438 sbf with a mark sullens e85 carb and his nitrous plate kit along with a pa performance super comp c4 transmission and a custom 8.8 rear end. The roll cage was installed by me and a buddy but was prebent from outlaw chassis fabrication. All the body work and paint work that is done to the car is done by me and father which he has been doing body work/paint work now for 30 years. As of right now I am waiting for the rear end to be assembled and installed and have the car wired. If you have any questions comments or concerns please feel free to post and I will be more than glad to answer them. Thank you all for viewing my build!

After installing the roll cage I sent the car off to outlaw chassis fabrication to have a custom 8.8 rear end built which I am still waiting for but should be done this weekend. Here are some pictures of the Parts I have bought over time along with my motor.

That’s some great work on the engine bay you did,completely unrecognisable. The rest of the build is looking too notch too (y) (y)
