Just an update with the car.
I bought front runners and matching rear wheels for the drag strip, maybe this year or next year I'll make some passes at the track, who knows. Having some issues with the transmission, so until I get that buttoned up and a dyno tune I won't be at the track anytime soon. My metal fabricator for the roll cage flaked out on me. Trying to find a guy in SE WI that can weld up a roll cage. I bought an ice tank and mounted it to the trunk. The previous set up in the engine bay was not working with the stock T-bird coolant reservoir. I bought a Moroso aluminum tank and flexible universal radiator hose to mock the setup of a 2011-2014 Mustang GT. I found that I was having a hard time burping the air out of the coolant system for proper cooling. The new set up works better, plus I have a bigger JLT air filter and heat shield in place where the old SC coolant tank was.
Returned home from my deployment in May, Roger would call it an Air Force Vacation, haha. Went to United Arab Emirates, got to see a lot of cool stuff and the culture in another Middle-Eastern Country (This was my second deployment). My job was firefighting, as this is my civilian job at home too. Fun stuff, I'll post some pictures at a later time. I took over 6 thousand pictures and since May I've had no motivation to edit.
Busy with a lot of house projects, work and spending time with family. I put in a car lift in the garage, poured some concrete and you know the usual home owner repair-replace routine. I replaced my DD with a Ford Taurus, put some Mustang wheels on it, love the car.
Hope all is well with everyone, sorry I'm not on here as much. Drop me an email if you want to stay in touch. [email protected]
