    Going to start this weekend wrenching on the 95 parts car. Plan is to take off what I can and see what else I can use.
    Thinking Alternator/Underhood Fusebox Wiring/Rad Fans. Then axles, control arms, brakes, steering rack etc. Plan on taking out what I can interior wise and use like the power drivers seat after that I really don't think there is anything usefull left.

    Spotted a Mark 7 being parted out and I may stop in to see if the wheels are for sale. I have a set of HPP wheels from my Crown Vic and maybe I could make a set that would work on my car.
    Just an FYI if you aren't aware of it. The SN95 rack will work in the Fox, but will require a custom steering shaft such as this :http://www.maximummotorsports.com/St...tang-P461.aspx

    Good Luck!

    That was exactly my plan. Eliminate the rag joint at the same time. Never trusted it what so ever. Thanks for the link!

    Not much to update car will be going into storage soon. Have the parts car after waiting 3 months for it. Currently dismantling it and stripping off what I need and selling off what I don't need.

    So far sold the trunk, side-skirts, tail-lights, cluster, and a bunch of trims. Car is incredibly rotten: Floors, wheel-wells, quarters. Honestly surprised it was on the road before.

    Going to keep Alternator, brakes, Axles, rad fans and probaly the underhood fusebox to wire up all my new accessories. Alternator looks brand new which is a bonus.

    Anyone need some scrap sn95 Parts? haha

    Well this has building up for the couple months but mustang is going into my garage this week.
    I bought the car in 2009. Drove it the summer blew up the engine and had a "friend" rebuild it. It was never right so since then I just puttered around.

    This winter it is getting blown apart.

    1) 5 lug conversion (have an sn95 94 parts car and new edge parts car)
    2) Bodywork! Probably not paint until spring but I recently bought doors, 1980 cobra front end and fenders to start replacing all of the dented rusted panels.

    And hopefully a new engine. Nothing crazy but my current engine has been having some kind of valvetrain noise for 2 years.

    Brakes I am ok with doing seeing I have been researching everything for at least 5 years just never had the time/space or money to do it right.

    The body is a first, the worst panels arent that bad but for tbe price I paid it was easier to buy the 1980 cobra stuff and resell the leftovers. Really debating selling the front bumper and hood because I really like my hood but my bumper is trash.

    The engine is the odd duck. It makes great power but makes a racket when it is warm. I have had a gt40 motor sitting in my now exes mother's garage for 4 years. Low miles but not sure how it has faired. Worst comes to worse I snatch heads and upgrades the valvesprings.

    The underhood fuse box is a great upgrade. I am doing that on my 85. I am tucking the wires and adding relays for the headlights. Maybe one day I will get done.

    It's been a long road. The car is family, I've owned it through thick and very thin times. I would love to find a roof skin but everything is tweaked or rotten by the time it hits the boneyard.

    I lucked out by finding a garage with my good buddy (he loves his ratrods chevy and tetanus heavy) and my friend with the 80 capri. Just thinking about it melts the winter blues away!

    Good to see your still working on the car. Us Canadian owners have more winter and in turn, more rust.

    Please keep us posted on your progress.

    Well life has been weird, I have owned the car 11 years but maybe drove it 500kms in the last couple years. It runs terrible, the paint is disgusting and it needs the work.

    I bought an 81 capri/Mustang missmash at the beginning of covid. The car looks decent but needs love so I traded it and a chunk of change to do something I almost never do.

    I'm painting my car! I sent it away, my painter is busy but he wants to restore the Capri as a Capri.

    My car is going to be receiving a new roof skin (no sunroof this time) New doors, fenders and front bumper. All oem stuff I accumulated.

    I'm a bit freaked out, but there is no way I will ever sell it. So it is time. When it comes back I will have to figure out what I want in it.

    No more dents, no rotted sunroof, chipping paint.

    Don't get me wrong . . . I LOVE my Capri's!!!

    But I do have to admit that the Capri squared off fenders with the 79 PC/80-81 Cobra/82 GT front nose is a BAD A## looking Fox. I know it's sacrilege, and against the tenets here at FEP and I don't disagree, but it is a SWEET looking combo. That was my original idea for a NASA American Iron race car WAY BACK when NASA first started. Unfortunately it never saw the track, life, wife, and kids ate up the play money. OH Well! Good Luck with your projects!

    Only one project that way I will get it done. Well that and my p71 with marauder flavors.

    Said derelict p71, keeps me busy since I can't fiddle with the Mustang.

    It's had a hard life, ex police car, theft recovery, accidents.

    Marauder front seats, lincoln town car back seats, Mustang 18s, lowered, 2.5" custom exhaust with the Magnaflows, Mercury front clip, marauder spoiler, headlights and corners. J-mod, 4:10s

    A hell of a lot of fun.
