Mach 1 update
#1
Hey guys I've been slacking when it comes to working on my mustang and posting pics of what I did. So here's what I have done in the past month or so.

I put in a coolant overflow tank.

Took the fuel tank out and cleaned and painted the fuel filler and the bottom of the trunk floor.

Put new KYB Gas-A-Just shocks in the rear.

And just for kicks wanted to see if a jeep grand cherokee wheel would fit.

It didn't

Thanks for looking

Thanks guys, I actually had a question about the fuel tank. What do you torque the strap bolts to or how far up the bolts do the nuts have to be?

Good question. I don't know the torque or if their is one. It does't have to be that tight. I would do it by feel.

I pretty much just went until the straps completely flattened out against the tank. Hopefully this is enough.

I would think so.

I've often wondered about that Jeep wheel, since it's an 8 incher. Did the backspacing just not work out? I think it looks fine.

No actually it would work just fine but the hole where the hub fits was too small so it would need machine work to fit right.
