My '93 SSP Coupe

I bought this car about a year ago however a recent deployment delayed my progress. This is not a restoration but a nice freshening up which I will be returning it back to the performance white from the black rattle can job it is sporting. I was going to just drop it off at a paint shop but I talked a buddy of mine (who owns a collision repare shop 1 mile from my house) into doing the job if I did all the prep work. Being that I would rather be able to learn a little body work, that is just fine with me plus I will be on leave for the next month. Right now it is in pieces and I will be starting on the body work next week. I will post pics of the car on Monday.

Done so far (parts are OEM or NOS):
-front core support straightened (frame shop)
-rebuilt original AOD
-new windshield
-water pump
-new fan
-new fan clutch
-timing chain
-new motor mounts
-power steering pump
-rebuilt original alternator
-inner tie rods
-Dynomax cat back
-BBK H-pipe
-FRPP SS headers
-FRPP driveshaft
-rear disk conversion
-93 Cobra master cylinder
-Wilwood PV
-new front rotors and pads (NAPA)
-new tires
-body molding replaced (doors forward)
-new headlights
-new battery tray
-new motorcraft hoses
-new motorcraft serpentine belt
-new motorcraft wires, cap and rotor
-opal grey tweed seats

To do:
-inner fender apron replacement
-paint (performance white)
-powdercoat wheels (maybe)
-rebuild A/C compressor

Thanks. It is a lot of work but I think it will be worth it. Plus I am doing 90% of the work so I am learning a lot. I will post pics of the new aprons tomorrow.

I know it's a #### load of work. I'm doing my car right now too. It's not as bad as yours but still a hand full. I'm doing everything myself too. My thread isn't too far below this one.

Progress is slow but getting there. Door jams, doors, trunk and trunk area preped and taped off ready for paint.
