New Guy 86 LX Coupe

Good Evening Everyone!

I joined this forum because I am trying to rebuild a mustang I bought and tore apart in college. It started as a stock 86 Lx abandoned at Logan Airport that I bought for $400. Since then I stripped the chassis and had it completely sandblasted. I replaced the floor pans and strut tower frame rails. I had the car primed and the jambs and engine bay painted in Kona Blue. I rebuilt the stock t-5 with stronger gears, input, output, and counter shaft. I also rebuilt the motor with forged KB pistons with valve reliefs, thumper ported GT40P heads with stainless valves and beefier valve springs, a Flow Tech Induction custom ground cam (.580) with 1.7 Roller rockers, and a GT40 Intake manifold. Right now I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, going through the wiring and checking everything over, replacing loom, etc. Next on the list is a SN95 disc brake swap. I really look forward learning a lot and maybe answering some of your questions here too!
