1. New Exhaust

    Another delayed update. I replaced the entire exhaust system back in June. I had a couple leaks around the muffler, all the pipes were really rusty, and the exhaust manifold was starting to crack, so I figured it’d be best if I went ahead and replaced it all.

    I ...

  2. Turn signal switch

    Okay, a very much delayed update—nothing new there, I suppose… Anyway, a few months ago I started having issues with my turn signals. The front ones worked fine if I remember right, but the rear ones were having issues. Something along the lines of the right one worked fine ...

  3. Shifter handle rebuild

    And one more thing that I did back in January. The shifter’s been pretty sloppy feeling ever since I bought the car, but I never did anything about it since I didn’t know how it was “supposed” to feel. Over the past several months, I noticed it seemed ...

    I actually did this about a month ago, but never posted about it. I picked up the Scott Drake export brace and got it installed, but it was a bit of a pain. It wouldn’t quite drop in, even if I jacked the car up along the engine crossmember ...

  7. 5000 miles and track laps

    On Saturday (the 18th), I passed the 5,000 mile mark since “completing” the Mustang last year.

    The day before that, Friday, I had the opportunity to take my car to the Kansas Speedway and actually drive it around the track. My dad has season tickets, and it’s something ...

  8. Back to the 3.03 transmission

    I changed back to the 3.03 transmission, 9” flywheel, and associated parts last Monday and Tuesday. I was getting tired of the slipping clutch, it grinding into gear, and the shifter jamming. The 3.03 didn’t want to line up at all this time, but I eventually worked ...
