Thanks, here's the most recent shots of it.

I forgot to take pictures, but for my tailights I pulled the GT lenses off. I then cleaned the inside and freshend them up with some "chrome" paint for the shinny part and black for the part with no light. Sealed them up with 1/4" butyl strip.

After getting everything together I have discovered that my turn signals don't work. I'm really hoping it's just the flasher and not the switch..

Out of the garage, onto a trailer. Off to get the alignment done and MM FL Subframe connectors welded in. Also having the frame checked for warpage before the SFC's. Then it will be off for a new windshield.

Been a long time since I've posted any pictures. The car's close to being done. I had to do the heater core, that was a load of fun. I still need to paint the engine bay, trim pieces, do some wetsanding and buffing and some other minor stuff. I've been driving it around some here and there. The mirror wasn't on in the picture as I had taken it off for some reason ( can't remember why lol it was a while back that I took this picture)

I also have most of the interior back in it now. As you can see, I've got the sideskirts and plastic pieces panted and put on.

FiveOhFox, great thread, and great work!

Glad to see someone taking the time to restore a fox. I'm going to look at an '87 GT with T-Tops on Wednesday. With any luck, I'll be driving it home that afternoon.

They're pretty cool cars. When I say it has T-Tops everyone is like "a Mustang with T-Tops? I didn't know they made them." Makes it feel like you have a rarity (which they kind of are!) I've put entirely way more time and money into it than I had initially planned, but it's better than I ever expected.

I'm still working on the finishing touches and still need to get the windows and T-Tops adjusted right to where it won't leak if I get rained on. I usually only drive it on sunny days, but it'd be nice to not worry about getting soaked if I get rained on.

Been there done that, it helps to have 55 gallon size trash bags with you.
