What he said. Kevin made a bracket to move my cable away from the bell housing to allow lighter clutch pedal feel, and keep it off my headers.

I didn’t. I just did the regular setup for that. May end up getting that too. But yeah, I’m gonna be running shortys, figured it would be easier to keep the cable away from the headers.

Got some more goodies in today. Ended up also having to order a different flywheel. I got an earlier model flywheel that wouldn’t work with a late model clutch setup. That and the aluminum separation plate will both be here tomorrow.

Engine and trans installed, undercoated body and mounted the subframe connectors finally. Going to be welding them to the chassis soon.

When you are done, that car will be your baby and you will be very protective of it. It's looking good.

Thanks guys. I think I’m gonna end up notching the shock towers for some shortys. I have a set of fox headers I was gonna use. But they don’t fit. And I don’t wanna buy other headers.

Undercoating done under, inner and under hood. Got the mustang Steve brake booster kit and clutch pedal conversion kit installed. Installed the wrong shift fork cause I’m dumb and I assumed something I shouldn’t. So I gotta pull the trans again. Oh well. Could be worse. But it’s got PEDALS! Well 2 out of 3 lol.

I saw you post something on Facebook a while back and started to ask you about progress but didn't want to creep you out. Thanks for the update, now get to work!
