Put Cleveland back in for now. FE will have to wait for some more money. I put 17x7's in front and 15x10's in back along with the suspension work got me the stance I was after.

Yes, lights make it look purple. Still blue, should have it outside for a better picture soon. Engine is in so that is the finished stance.

Put 2006 Mustang GT front brakes on which required the larger diameter rims.

Finished up installing cable clutch, put hood on, then pushed it out for a bath. Need to start installing new wiring harness tomorrow, then some new brake lines and figure out what I'm doing with the interior. Hope to have it on the road sometime this Summer

I bought the valve stabilizer covers from SVO (now called FRPP) back in the late 80's, the intake at a swap meet around the same time.

When I bought the rims the guy could not believe I wanted taller rims for the front than the back. He repeated the order 3 or 4 times. Said he has sold a bunch of taller rears, never taller fronts.
