im happy to have sold the car to some one who has the money to finish it the way i wanted to. ive spent a long time working on the car and hope you enjoy my work.

the mustang front spindle is a great idea and was the last thing i was looking at when i decided to sell. every thing currently on the front you can sell on this site as a 5 lug conversion. it is mazda3 spindle and strut with eibach focus pro springs and focus top hat. mazda3 2.3 rotors and svt calipers and mazda lca with poly bushings. some people want to do a 5 lug for wheel options and you would be able sell a full front conversion.

i also sold the festiva lol

this car replaces both:

Im going to get the car runnng again with fresh gas and get my laptop setup with all the megasquirt stuff I need tonight after work. Sunday Im taking the car to the chassis shop ( which happens to be a good friend of mine). He is going to help me get the front end lined out so I can get this beast on the road.

Well with some text messaging from Turbo Turtle on how he wired the car, and from Cycle252 with a ton of help on the MS set up and updates.

THANK YOU BOTH!!!!

It is once again alive, it runs!!!!

So my chassis guy had to go out of town for the weekend at the last min so I spent the time getting it up and going again so it will pull itself on and off the trailer. Im going to get the brake fluid leak fixed this week. Then is off to Kevins shop so we can work on the steering!

I hope to have it on the road soon!!!!
