I'm waiting on a quote from them now. Oddly enough there's not out of the box kit for my car. lol
You’re going to have $2000+ in just universal parts. I’m not talking cheapeast of the cheap, just quality stuff that will ride nice.

I was thinking 3-5K would be my cost, but closer to 3 than 5. but we will see what it looks like when I put a front bumper back on it. might put it where I want it height wise. I've just always imagined this car on bags. Always been my dream.

I agree with both these dudes. We do the wheels which is almost free, some even fresh tint all the way around and a front bumper. Aesthetics done

I'd just assume he was talking to you and I wouldn't fuck around and tint my windows. Egg is hard as shit to clean up in the summer.

haha, the windows where tinted back before the Challenger blew up. Going to be hell getting the tint off but it's on my list to do. The car lives in the garage, there's no need for tint.

The bolt began to back out while driving, galled the threads and basically became stuck. i let it sit for two long thinking the bolt was permanently stuck, and would shear off when trying to remove. Two nights ago i borrowed a tool from homealone to hold the flywheel and with help, the bolt is out. Hopefully the crankshaft isn't damaged beyond easy repair, and all that is needed is a new bolt, pulley and a few other odds and ends.

I'll post up the progress of my Cougar later, I've had all the photobucket i can handle for a while.

This truck is now fixed. I was able to clean up the threads on the end of the crankshaft, then properly press on the new pulley and used a new ARP bolt. It needs a good cleaning, ditch the goofy tail lights, and I would like some kind of bed cover but options are limited for stepside beds.

I got my WB O2 sensor replaced finally on the Fox, now it just needs inspection and registration and a bath.

No pics, but a buddy and I welded in a frame brace in the malibu tonight in preparation to notch the frame for a fatter tire (275-295 is max stock). I've had this car since 2003ish and I should have done this years ago. As soon as the car is on the ground a 6.0 and TKO are going in.

Yeah, I know. But I try to justify it with pre-war truck builds, wagons, first gen camaros, another 69 fastback, and lately, those pesky helicopters.
