Our car now rolls, as installation of the Baer brake kit was a snap. Going to the five-lug brakes required the use of five-lug wheels, requiring 17-inch tires. Once tires arrived, we could get back to work.

We went with the track-proven Goodyear Eagle GS-CS for autocross duty, while on the street we'll ride on 245/40ZR17 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D2 tires. It has been a while since we have run Goodyear tires on a project car, so we're anxious to try something new. The Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D2 tire is built in Europe for high-speed use, although its tread pattern suggests good wet-weather performance.

During our recent work, we had a small revelation: We're building a clone of the '93 Cobra R, sort of, and the Tri-Bar wheels only reaffirm this fact. The car looks awesome on the late-model wheels. It also rides and handles better.

Look for a nice synopsis on the Mustang in the September issue, while the project should get going in earnest soon after.
