    • Mike,
      Both of those coatings are urethane-based......likely containing forms of isocynate.......so make sure you have lots of good ventilation if/when you use them. You can breath too much of their vapors because they don't have too much odor to them. Just because you can't smell them much, doesn't mean they can't make you sick.... Respect the application instructions - do NOT consider them lightly.

      • Thanks for the heads up Ryan. I also found that I have 2 cans of the Eastwood rubberized undercoating I must have purchased for just this purpose.

        • Today I finished welding up the l/s sub frame connectors. Here is the l/s & r/s connectors.

          • The more I looked at where I mounted the ignition box on the drivers side front inner fender panel the more I did not like it there. So I made a bracket for it, painted it black, mounted the ignition box to the bracket & mounted it to the r/s rear inner fender panel behind the passengers side shock tower. Now it is almost invisible there.

                However, I'd bet It will realize more under-the-hood heat in that new location.... - Ryan

                • It is about 6-7" away from the headers which are down near the frame rail & the ignition box is up near the top of the shock tower. I am thinking of making a heat shield for it.

                    I was going to suggest you do just that, Mike....

                    • Well after hearing the comments about the heat from the headers I moved the ignition box to where I originally had it on the drivers side front inner fender panel. Since the drive train is all in & hooked up I turned my attention back to the wiring, hooking up the wiring from the ignition box to the coil, distributor, temp sender, oil pressure sender, & the temp sender for the electric cooling fans.

                      • Where is your water temp sending unit Mike? Is that it on the thermostat neck? My thermostat neck doesn’t have a hole. I used the hole in the intake where you have your heater hose for mine, and used one of the holes in the rear crossover for the heater hose. There wasn’t another hole big enough for my manual sender.

                        • In the picture above I posted if you look just to the right of the distributor there is a piece of masking tape over the hole for the water temp sender so nothing falls in there. The new gauges I am going to get come with their own senders that I must use for the gauges. The sender in the thermostat housing is for the electric cooling fans.

                          • Gotcha. Mine has a hole there, but it's the smaller size. Couldn't use it with my mechanical gauge, had to use the large one on the other side.

                            • This past weekend I upgraded the Mustangs charging system from the 1G alternator to a 95 amp 3G alternator. It bolted up the the Mustangs stock alternator brackets even with the 1987 standard rotation water pump. The only thing I needed to do was add a 3/4" spacer to the bottom bolt of the main alternator bracket.
