    About finished with Franken5.0 time to say hello

    Its ok I guess. Its faded and is slowly removed each time I take it through the auto car wash but still serving its purpose to hide imperfections. I plan on re-doing it except this time spraying it with adhesion promoter and then a “higher” quality aerosol spray bed liner like Seymour or Raptor...

    About finished with Franken5.0 time to say hello

    Well the thanksgiving break gave me a chance to address some lingering issues related to upper to lower vacuum leaks and some exhaust issues. Back in summer I found a 93 Cobra upper and lower intake, 70mm TB and a pair of GT40P heads for $500 so I jumped on it. Got the heads rebuilt, decked and...

    14SEP2020 Update: Sprayed the tops of the inner wheel wells with black satin vinyl dye and they turned out pretty nice. Finally got the 3” body lift and poly mount bushings in. Of course the the bolts dedicated for under the core support did NOT work. 😂 Got some hardened all-thread that did...

    Hey Tom, I installed power Explorer seats in mine the same way I would power an amplifier from the distribution block and a 20A fuse; grounded to the frame via the seat hole. Alas but possibly most importantly I bypassed the huge settings/memory module under the seat and connected the power and...
