It wasn't easy I'm sure. I do wish I had more involvement but it's mine now. And more power will come for sure!

Latest update.
What started out as a simple shift knob change morphed into this...





Tried both flash and no flash.

Here's how things went:
At first I thought I want a new shift knob so I bought a 2005 Mustang GT online for a ridiculous price. And while I was at it I wanted a shorter shifter so it was either cut the old one or install one I had previously cut down that I found in my spare parts bin. However, I couldn't find a 12x1.25mm (or whatever size) die anywhere so it was change shifters.
And since I had the console out I figured I would wire up the 12v adapter in the console. But I wanted a USB charger so I molded one in to the old 12v port on the stereo surround. And I wanted that one power key on and the console one power constand so re-wired them both. And since I had things apart I saw the posts about solid shifter mounts so I installed a set.
And since the console was out I figured what better time to wire in the power/heated seats as well. And now that I see the e-brake handle I want to get the SVT handle and steering wheel to match the rest of the Euro interior. No e-brake handle yet but I did find an SVT steering wheel locally. Well since I was in the column I want to install cruise control since the wheel came with the controls.
So now it's time to troll the Picky Pull for a clock spring and CC module and assorted wiring since I will need CC for the drive to FF13!
Since I am in this far-am I missing anything?

You're going to have some fun installing cruise control. Congrats for diving headlong into it though, you're probably capable given how confidently you've taken the car apart to this point.

I'm not sure if this is someone here but I found these videos very informative.
