Hello All,

I have enjoyed reading your builds for a long while now so I'll share a bit of my current project. I may or may not keep this up to date but hopefully some of you will enjoy reading it. I bought the bean sight unseen equipped with an original 1.6 kent and a 4 speed. It was my daily through a winter and when I found a buyer for the motor the V8 swap began. Here are some pictures of the car as recieved, in daily mode with big mustang rear wheels, and a few pictures of the motor build (302).

Once the motor was built it  went in along with a T5. This required moving some radiator support and tunnel out of the way.

While the motor was going together and getting installed I had an explorer 8.8 shortened and repacked the trac lok. The front was converted to 5 lug using mustang ii rotors and a grinder to match the new rear end.

In reply to Shavarsh :

Are you worried about brake noise with that setup? ;-)
