Well, with the happenings with the Hoser my Canadian export SVO (http://bangshift.com/forum/showthrea...rt-Mustang-SVO), I think I'll start the resurrection of the Red Turd, 1986 Mustang SVO. Body shell is absolutely straight, already has full frame connectors. I've got a spare engine and transmission that I can finish rebuilding and stuff in it. I think I could have something pretty nice within 60 days or so. But...it'll be RED!! ugh. LOL
Its been sleeping in the White Trash Ranch boneyard for about 4 years, as I've slowly picked its bones for stuff to put on the Hoser. I guess turnabout is fair play.
The plan will be to pull it out of the boneyard, finish stripping it done, do a quick once over block and sand and have it spayed at some cheapo, step back and blow, paint shop. Can you say Earl? I could do the rustoleum roller job, but the environment is just too dirty out here at the ranch. Lovely Donna harrows the horse arena twice a day which throws sand in the air that floats over everything. Yuck.
I'll finish the engine rebuild that was set for the Hoser, rebuild the tranny that had an, ummm, shall we say brain fart moment when it was installed into the racecar without a front thrust bearing. (yeah, stupid, but oh well).
From a suspension standpoint, I've got a couple of extra axles floating around. I"ll install a torque arm (money and time willing), and also rebuild the front lower control arms.
Big decision point is whether or not to make it a two seater and drop in a welded roll hoop with drops crossed to the rear shock towers. These cars are such wet noodles when it comes to unibody rigidity.
Anyhow, I'll get some pics up and we'll get this party started...when the back and neck are healed up enough.
