but since im in the process of putting aditional parts and changing paint scheme again ( if you dont like it you will soon.. if you do you will like it more ) but anyway




also remember someone asking what the dragon tail hood looked like on the cougar..



THE TRANNY SWAP!! i found this very easy and giving myself the time could continue to do this for others if they want to supply parts..



couple pictures of the side skirts....

lol.. well kinda, of course there would be a fee.. its time consuming and i dont have a lot of that.. im not yet finished but really havent had any problems ive already started with mounting it back on so give me a few days i should be able to finish this weekend. 10 hour work days take a lot out of me... also after i get my svt parts in im going to pull the engine and start polishing. so after i get the manifold done ill let you guys know if ill do that too

well.. the green will be used again, but im adding a charcoal color metallic and using both for graphics and the car will be dominant black again (ie: decklid) powder coating the subframe and undercarriage. of course i have engine mods upcoming and fiberglass interior work to be done.. of course more molding on the body and may put the complete millenium kit on (undecided).. still quite open with what im doing but mainly focusing on the engine for now

how can you say something is "very easy" if you haven't even done it yet?

it isn't that hard. We just had my transmission out yesterday and I got a good look and experienced what goes into working with the tranny, and it all doesn't seem that difficult. It would be easier with a lift tho, then working in the driveway with jackstands and two jacks.

no no, i just know how people on here react - when you told tad to "think before you post" after he told you that you weren't even done yet... i was anticipating tad to reply with a nasty message.




i'm glad that you are enjoying the work :)

LOL. I can't even count the number of times I've tried doing something with my car, thinking about how easy it was as I was finishing up, and then quickly realizing that it was easy because I didn't do it right. Not saying that this'll happen to you, it's just that you saying that brought back some "fond" memories of modding my car. Hope it all turns out alright!
