Minor setback

How's it going gentlemen (& Ladies)?
As some of you may know I was (still am ha) in the process of finding an RC for myself but 3 weeks ago someone brought it to my attention that there was a mustang GT for sale that needed a trans.

So 3 weeks ago I went to look at it, Started it up, Drove it a little (1st & 2nd slip bad) but all in all I had to bring it home, I've always loved this bodystyle and loved the 4.6L's snarling growl.

So without further ado here she is, Pretty stock, Could use a full body makeover but all in all worth the price.

[Day I went to look at it]


[Home]



[Moonlight shot from Wednesday night]


As of right now all it has is a K&N Air filter and 3" Flowmaster 40 series Catback.

Main plans for it are:

Manual Swap.
99-01 Cobra Front Bumper.
Mach 1 Grill Delete & Chin Spoiler.
Saleen rear wing.
Bullitt Pedal Covers.
Headers.
X-Pipe.
Borla Stinger catback.
Black housed headlights.
LED Sequential Taillights.
01-04 Dual Din Conversion.
H&R 25-35mm Wheel spacers (Rear)
New Window Tint.
Various decals (Hood stripe, Rocker stripes, Etc.)

Something like I'd like it to look afterwards:




And that's pretty much it, Still aiming for the RC before work begins here because well... A cage, No matter how cool or fast, Can ever replace a bike.

I wish, haha.

I wish I could sell my current daily and get an RC but I need it until I have the RC

This thing has been tucked away in the garage for the next few weeks, Supposed to be some bad weather rolling in soon, Gives me time to work out a few small kinks to get it ready for a new trans.

Sp, Got any pics of your mustang to share?

Got a question for you guys, Do you think someone would trade me a decent RC for this beast? All it needs is a new trans and it's good to go.

Having trouble selling my other 2 cars and pulling together the funds needed for my gear and everything and it's killing me, Riding's in my blood and I haven't been able to ride for 2 years.

Haven't got my mind set on it but as time goes on it's harder and harder to live without a bike so the sooner the better.

Wishful thinking, I think! Fix it quick, sell it and buy an RC51, hopefully making a little profit along the process. That's the (much faster) way forward on 2 wheels.
