Good to see you're still around, 85! The warthog looks good as ever.

LOL... my siggy said "buy here" in tiny letters, so I missed it. I didn't click on it, so I assume that's what it was though?

I went and changed my password now. Can't think of any other way for it to get changed?

At one time I did...a lot...lol. I've been sober the whole time I've been on TRS. Building my racetruck helped me stay sober.
AlwaysFlOoReD is a reference to my racing style and what I race with. If i did flooring for a living it would be even better...lol

Right on... good to see you, Bud!

Just picked up some SN95 front brakes for my 89. Going to try and adapt to New Edge Calipers. I've seen it done doing some grinding.

SN95 brakes is the way to go on those cars. My brother did that swap with some ssbc calipers if I remember correctly.

I have sn95 brakes on my 65 lol. 4 wheel manual drum wasn't cool after you pass 90 hp of the stock 225 inline.... I did no grinding, one adapter and they bolt right on. That's why I love mustangs, everything fits and if they don't, someone makes an adapter. I run a 289 with a holley sniper system, I guess it's like 275rwhp. Not a beast but it moves.

I'm going to go out and try to see what needs to be done. I am wanting to put the PBR calipers off a 99-04 on it. I have a couple brand new calipers, as well as some used.

Nice to see you're still around BlackBII!!

For the record... with some MINOR clearancing, the PBR dual piston calipers will bolt right in to place! Man, I really excited about this.

Just some light grinding where my fingers are pointed, and it's in!

I pulled the tank out of my 88 over the weekend to replace the pump, filter, fuel level sending unit, and wound up needing to replace the filler neck grommet too. I'll be hitting a car show with my 89 this weekend.... just not sure WHICH car show yet.

If you're interested, I did start a YT channel for my 88, and my 5 other vehicles fleet, LOL. Named it after my 89 though - "The Eight Nine Garage".


Also, this was from the All Ford show I did back in May.... LOTS of beautiful Fords there.

Finally got my T5 back so it can go in my 88. Going to go with a B&M Shifter... I found one cheap locally.
