    Nice build, just my kind of game. One Q, I see in your pics that you have installed adjustable leaf mounts in the front. Was looking at the same product and I'm wondering if it moves the leafs to the inside as well or just up/down?

    Nope , it just moves the spring up and down. It uses two of the factory bolt locations and they give you a bracket to fab up a third point. The kit doesn't come with instructions and the pics online are from a first gen. I just did what will work and is still removable.

    Hey, did you steal my old front brakes out of my garage? I just had a flashback!
    Those work great for drag racing and fit behind 15" wheels, if they are the same ones I have.
    Your car is going go be "sneaky".
    My hood has been on my roof on top of a moving blanket for years now. Best and only place to safely store one. Ha ha.

    I got those at a swap meet with spindles for cheap but I ended up buying vented rotors for them and the caliper spacers.
    The sneaky factor might change if I go with the Hi ram intake and air to water intercooler. That setup is huge! If I do I'll swap to an l88 hood and cut the center out. Decisions decisions download.jpeg

    That thing is pretty impossible to hide.
    You could do meth injection for IAT but those long runners are what they are.
    Like you said, decisions, decisions.
    My car has everything except a crazy motor.

    This is the other intercooler I'm considering since our cars have so much room up front. Screenshot_20200106-064440.png

    I got the rearend ,leaf springs and sliders hung up under the car. I need to order my traction bars and rear shocks.
    I think I'm going with smith spacecraft assassin bars and strang double adjustable shocks. IMG_20200105_165914_391.jpg IMG_20200105_165914_389.jpg IMG_20200105_165914_387.jpg

I just want a mustang and ricer boy killing street machine lol. but anyways what was the prep like for the gravitex stuff? I was considering POR15 for the bottom side but that stuff looks pretty nice. keep up the progress.
