Rusty turned out very nice, another job well done.

I notice you're missing the oval grommet on the fire wall, any plans for that ?

Looks awesome! Love the color combo - and the tasteful mods! Not too often you see a T-Top notchback, let alone one that has been very tastefully modified!

Best of luck with it - looks great!





The only teeny tiny very minor thing - (I know it's your vehicle) IMO, the exterior door handles would look much better if left black...

I'm in love with your 4 eye!

Edit: Where is the belt tensioner? Or are you using a PS bracket that allows you to tighten the belt up?

Hey i am finishing up my build and have a GT-40 upper/lower as well and am having a clearance issue with tall valve covers even after a spacer.Do you happen to know what brand oil cap that is and where it was purchased.
Thanks in advance,

Yes, we removed the egr, You have to buy a cheater from RJM Technologies to trick the computer.No issues with throttle cable but you have to buy an adapter so that your throttle cable bracket will bolt into it. Let me know if you need a pic of anything.Thanks.

definately in my top 5 fav fox's, amazing job.

thats the only other car, besides mine, that Ive seen with that idle adjuster plate that goes between IAC and TB. Thing works wonders at making modifed 5.0s idle like stockers.
