Re: any late mustang aussie owners here?
Yep, have an 89 GT hatch. It's off the road at present, undergoing a ground-up rebuild (that's taking waaaaay longer than oringinally planned). Won't be stock when finished either. Intending for this to be my play toy, as its stable-mate (BA GT) is my regular cruiser.
Have just spent a couple of months working in Seattle, so have brought home all I need to upgrade the brake department, as Fox bodies around this era had woeful stoppers (still factory drums on the back!). Have 2001 Bullitt calipers all round and Cobra rotors (all new Ford Motorsport parts), plus many parts from wreckers needed for conversion (front spindles, rear axle shafts, etc). Still deciding on wheels, but love the Cobra-R's (17x9).
Lots of stuff going into engine. Have most parts I need, only really have to get my heads now. Aiming for reliable 380-400hp (know you can easily get more, but these cars are light, and will easily account for themselves against late model 'Dores, etc).
Haven't totally decided on interior yet, but it will include brand new EB XR Momo wheel with cruise buttons I picked up recently (the standard wheel looks crap).
Taking time, but having a lot of fun...
BA GT #0909 - Manual, Citric Acid, Stripes, Sunroof, Premium sound, FPV Steering wheel and Mats.
