Hey I thought some of you guys might enjoy some pics of my newest project.


1979 zephyr 2 door box top.


There is some before and some during and some after. All of this work was done in one day and the dash in another.


All torque boxes seams have been welded and braced But I still need to do the subframe connectors/cage and lower battle box kit.

Here is some info on what I posted.


33 spline moser lightweight spool

33 spline moser pro series axles with C clip eliminators

5/8 studs

Axle housing welded and checked for straightness

T/A Diff girdle cover

North race cars disk brakes

Team Z relocated upper control arms

Team Z adjustable lower control arms

Strange 10 way adjustable shocks

Competition enginering Anti roll bar.


In my mustang this powertrain went [email protected] with a soft 60 foot.


The same powertrain in this car should go 9.30-9.20ish i hope.


Got some new seats for project gramps, They are out of a 1994 rx7 touring edition and match the tan interior just right, They are worn on the drivers side bolster so I will need to have that fixed up but minor.

Also had the help of a friend who is a very good welder and we finished the 2x2 through floor subframe connectors with outriggers.We also pulled out about 70 or so lbs of sound deadner/misc brackets that are not needed anymore.
The subframes still need to be seam sealed and undercoated but I am glad the hard part is done.

Here is some pics of the turbo kit off the mustang not anything too fancy but I built it all myself and it worked well. Getting ready to pull everything out of the mustang and get it ready for project "gramps"

Well I decided to get started on my trunk as I wanted to ditch the factory tank/spare tire well and start fresh with my parts nad mounted where I want them.

My major concern/reason for doing this is in order to move the weight(Fuel cell/battery/meth tank etc) where I want it and to have it mounted the way I want it.

Forgot to take any during the actual cutting but I basically went all the way to the center of the frame rail and now have a nice square flat surface to land all of my sheet/braces too. It was kind of a pain to drill all the spot welds but I think it will be worth it.

I plan to run a peice of tubing between the rear frame rails to give the cage a nice strong point to tie in.

Bracing coming along, I used 3/4" Angle iron in order to be strong but still keep the weight down. This set up can hold me(200lbs) no problem without issue so I think it will be just fine.

Ok here is some updated pics of the trunk layout.... I am over all fairly happy with the way things are fitting inside the trunk, Still need to set up some bolt in ballast bars,fuel pump,meth pump and possibly trans cooler. Have not decided on that one yet.

Here is some pics of the tabs/mounts for everything with the cells/battery mount out.

Here is some with everything installed. obviously I still need to sheet the trunk in but that should be pretty straight forward.
