Exclamation 1987 MUSTANG 5.0 Convertible UPDATE!



So for those of you who like to follow along with my work and "The Infamous Project", the BMW has pretty much been completed other than some final fine tuning. Info and pics can be seen here: Max Thread or on my website with more detailed info here. 1992 ACS BMW

So project #2, the 1987 Mustang GT Convertible! I think lots of us can appreciate these cars for what they are. The car already features some nice mods! (All built by myself back in 2004).

Engine:

306 Block
GT40 heads
GT40 intakes
E303 Cam
65mm T Body
24lb Injectors
80mm MAF
Mac Shorty Headers
B&M shifter
FMS 3:55 gears
BBK Hi Flow Catted H Pipe
Flowmater 3 Chamber catback
4" Magnaflow Tips
Steeda cross brace subframe connectors

Body:

Shaved Handles, Locks, Antenna, Fuel Door
Kaanen 2.5" cowl hood
SR-345 wing
Custom Rear Bumper
Custom Stalker Front Bumper
Custom "Stang" Side skirts

Extras:

Full black 1993 leather interior conversion (including shoulder belts in the rear)
1993 Convertible top frame assembly (6" lower)
Full suite of Phantom Auto Meter Gauges
KYB GR2 struts and shocks
FMS C Springs

During The Infamous Project the car will be featuring the following modifications:

-Full paint in Matte Black
-Custom fuel door filler neck install behind license plate
-Racecraft 2" drop spindle install
-Custom rear lower control arm install for more drop
-5 bolt conversion
-18" Black Chrome Saleen wheel upgrade
-Vortech A turned S trim supercharger install! (12psi)
-Possible rear disc
-Alarm repair/install for door poppers
-Stereo install
-more more more!

Here is a picture of the render:



Here are some pics of the car on how I picked it up from storage and my progress after 2 nights of work! Car is completely stripped down and block sanded. Full story and info on this car can be seen here: 1987 Mustang GT Vert

I am stuck between Mustangs and BMW's.. honestly can't pick a favorite. Mustangs are so cheap to build and nothing beats the sound and torque and the feeling of driving one.. On the other hand.. the cornering, braking and torque of the I6 is a completely different experience! Worst part is.. you throw my SVT Lightning into the line up and I am always tossed on what to drive because the torque and power found in the truck is unreal and the 23's are always nice to roll on.. I guess it comes down to this:

If i want to drive with minimal worries about road conditions and need to move something or tow the waverunner.. = Lightning (yes i still need to be careful driving with the wheels and because it's slammed)

If i want to possibly get myself into a bit of trouble around town and slap some quick gears then the BMW

If i want to cruise and always hear the power and smell some great exhaust fumes... then the Stang!

Your not the only.

My first brand new car was a '87 5.0 LX back in the day.

Handled like crap, but the 300lbs torque and a light rear end made for easy drifting and smoke shows! I still have fond memories of it.

Well the car is painted! You can see here the stages of paint:

1- Base Coat alone
2- Clear Coat with "matting agent" which still applies glossy
3- Final product after drying overnight = Satin Black! (pics don't do it justice)

I was worried in the first pic appeared to be some tiger stripping but it looks to be gone now. Looks good.
