    Got a little work done.

    Today the weather at the Jersey shore is beautiful, mid 70's & mostly sunny so I decided to take advantage of the good weather & roll the 69 Coupe out of the garage & cut out the l/s front torque box & floor support. Here is as far as I got when I busted my last sawzall blade.

    Mike, I had a similar handle unit in my coupe from a Mustang ii. while under the car one day I noticed how rusty it was & the black handle
    matched nothing else so I went with a chrome handle unit. I am waiting to see what you think about the cable kit. thanks

    I am using the center mount parking brake handle from a 1987 Mustang, I am only using the Lokar parking brake cables. Here is a pic of the handle assembly I am using.


    Here is a link to the cables I am using.

    I`m interested in the Lokar set up also as I have a floor mount E-brake handle in my coupe. twice over the years it has locked up & needed
    to be removed to be repaired. due to this I have been reluctant to add their cable set up.

    Good stick-to-it-ness, Mike!

    So how did the Lokar go in?
    Did it slip in like it was made for it?
    Are you happy with it or is it a 'it looks like it'll work' type of thing?

    Today was another beautiful day so I did a little more work on the Mustang. I put the back of the Mustang up on jack stands to start running the Lokar parking brake cables to get the center mount parking brake hooked up.

    Today was beautiful weather (70°) so I rolled the Mustang out of the garage & finished the rear brake lines on the rear differential to the rear wheel cylinders.

    I installed the new front & rear 1330 u joints in the aluminium driveshaft & installed the yoke for the T-5 trans.

    Yesterday I acquired an aluminum driveshaft for the Mustang from a 2000 Explorer 2WD 4 door 4.0 V-6, which is actually the same length as the stock Mustang driveshaft. Now I just have to replace the u joints & install the yoke for the T-5 trans.

    Wow, that’s a great thing to know! Thanks!

    I have been sick all week with the flu & only started feeling better today so I spent a little time in the garage finishing the "custom" r/s Mach-1 dash panel. When I got the panel the wood grain applique was peeling so I decided to completely remove it & paint it satin black to match the l/s dash panel.

    I stopped at the re-builder yesterday after work & he told me the cam & the intake have the same RPM power range IIRC 4,000-4500 RPM. He also stated with the changes he is making to the engine I could expect 325HP out of the engine. As far as the compression next time I see him I will have to ask.
