Mustang Project Update and my foxbody got some new headlights

Posted on the April 16th, 2009 under mustang by John

Figured I’d post some before and aftershots of the the new Headlights I just put on my Mustang.   The ones that were on there were these Euro on piece designs that looked like crap.  They were also cracked and leaking, when I washed the car it was like a fish tank in there. (pictures below)

Just a small update on the project also… Rear main seal, new clutch (MMR RBT700), pilot bearing (Ford), throw out bearing (Ford), and flywheel (Ford) are in.  I have to bolt up the cross member to the tranny, I had to modify it for the new 3550 TREMEC that we put in.  Down the road I’ll have to get that welded so there is no shifting.  I also need to hook up the clutch cable and make sure that’s OK and test it before I bolt the exhaust back up.  After that I should be good to go, and hopefully no problems.  The new clutch requires a 450 mile break in of stop and go. The clutch should handle the power OK, it seemed to get good reviews on the various mustang forums.

During some of the downtime I clayed the car and used a paint cleaner.  It looks pretty good for its age, hopefully tonight I’ll apply the polish and get the wax on sometime this weekend.  The car has a ton of scratches and other issues, but for a 23 year old car it looks pretty good.    If I have everything rolling this weekend I’l really like to get the undercarrige of the car cleaned up, I was thinking of putting it on jack stands in the driveway and getting some engine degreeser underthere and spraying it down.  I tried to wipe most of the old oil off around the tranny area from the old rear main seal leaking with some break cleaner when I was putting in the tranny.  I need to read up more on detailing the engine bay as well, its pretty dirty in there. (any suggestions welcome!)
