Where'd the doors come from? How do you like the fit and finish on them?

But on a good note I did score some fiber glass doors and put em on the car:D

I know how you feel on the flex plate went to start mine the other day it kicked back and knocked the starter off I put it back on yesterday after have to fix a starter bolt hole. Now it sounds like a bad spot in the new csr flex plate that was bought the 1st of the year when I built the engine. I got to pull the trans out and put the powerglide in so I will check it out hope/it might be in the starter itself. Car is looking good I know you will be very happy to get to make a pass in it.

got the car back on the scales today after all the recent work I done on car, front tube,new radiator and fan,plastic dash, glass doors. I must say Im pleasantly suprised again. Car came in at 2444lbs but im only at about half of fuel in 5 gallon tank and no rear end lube yet:D  I weigh 230 ish so I still should be able to come in at race weight of just under 2700lbs totally. I'm cool with that lol.Laughing

If you have access to a radiator/cooling system tester  like this

http://www.ebay.com/itm/18pc-Radiator-Pump-Pressure-cooling-Leak-Tester-Checker-Kit-Cap-Pump-Thermometer/200936633708?rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D163%26meid%3D3477199000434416955%26pid%3D100005%26prg%3D1088%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D370958480454%26  

 you can pressurize the radiator and see where it is coming from while the engine is cool not worry about getting burnt looking for the leak

Progress of My big block 598ci TFS Ahead mustang - Page 2 Empty Got some video today.

Post  deliveredfast on December 29th 2013, 5:59 pm

Well I decided to fire the car up today and drive it around the block for the first time Laughing  Car is not race ready, its go around the block tho. wires are temporary and no gauges are mounted yet,lol. 14 to 1 c/r could not find any blue so its 93 octane with booster. didnt hammer on it so should be fine.

start up with new front facing headers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_m6a4TfehzA

first pass around the block Laughing with IKAM glasses felt good. just broke tires loose 1st and 2nd barely touching it, but it was cold and roads are salty so its tobe expected.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEXq9ERC74M

vid of motor after first pass with some idle ajustments
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94JfwF3UW9I

all in all motor sounds good, feels good, now Im gonna take it out pull the heads off and put the correct rings(nos rings) in it that was suppose to be there in the first place. Mad

If it runs as good as it sounds,it will be a handful. Nice build and good luck. You and Denaro will be a good matchup,when he gets his NEW build finished. Can't wait to see how it runs.
