Brian and I were trying to figure out what we were going to do to cover up all the wires in the trunk and we found out about Mustang to Fear's trunk kit for the coupe. At the time we inquired they only had one made for the Eleanor style taillights. Rich said he was going to make one for the stock taillights and we also received the first gas filler neck cover.
We still have to make a bracket to mount the computer and control panel behind the the Mustang to Fear trunk panel kit.
Great all we had to modify was the wood for the floor a little to fit around the gas filler. The problem was it was in my garage at the house and I don't have a tool box there and all we had was a big hand saw we use for trimming trees. Steve Baur had his cordless drill with him.
I hooked up the battery in the trunk (I still need to hook up the ground cable to the engine) to see what works. The Ron Francis trunk mounted battery kit has two ground gables one small short one that I have going to the body and a large long one that they want mounted to a bell housing bolt. So far the AC 3 blower speeds work, taillights, turn signals, and headlights.
I have a problem with the lights in the dash flashing when the key is off and the steering column harness is hooked up.
Been there, did exactly that with a 428 in a 1966 Fairlane GT. That was around 1970 when I had a whole lot more energy! Damn those shock towers.
If I knew then what I know now those towers would have been gone!
Same here. I bought a Cobra Jet one piece at a time at Downey Ford on my mothers Union 76 card for my'66 Fairlane GT. Somehow I thought she wouldn't mind!! My buddy's CJ Mustangs would get me on the top end but I'd kill them off the line. Man, I'd trade my '69 Mach I for a good '66 Fairlane GT......
