    Beautiful car. How original is the rest of the car in terms of paint and interior?

    Very cool. Did you install the engine/K member from the bottom as one? I bet it gets better mileage in the Foxbody as it must be close to 750-1000lbs lighter that the car it came out of.

    Nice clutch pedal delete kit...I was very tempted to convert to the coyote...still am after seeing your build.
    Did you run hydraulic power steering vs the electric? Looks like a P/S reservoir pictured...
