First fox build

Ive been wanting to get into a build of some sort for Awhile now and found a 1988 mustang lx shell for sale in the area that came with a 90 gt motor for a grand.this is my first build and wont be anything crazy since im 17 and going into my senior year of highschool but the gt motor already has a cam and edlebrock upper and lower intakes and i have a 5.0 motor laying around from a previous car i crashed that i plan to fully build and eventually turbo.



Bringing the car home

Car wasnt the prettiest looking but ive seen worse





Trans was still in the shell when i bought it so i pulled this out alone on my day off,has short throw shifter. also have another trans not sure which one im gonna run yet





Got to work painting the bay.not too worried about it looking perfect because ill eventually shave the bay some when i turbo the car.just waiting on some parts from late model resto than the motor will be ready to go in,figured i might as well re gasket the whole thing while its out
