Default Fox rolling through

Just bought my wife a fox and wanted to register in case we get stumped working in it. Seems like a great bunch of folks around here. Quick background, our current mustang is number 6 for us. Over the years we have owned a 84 GT, 85 coupe, 91 LX hatch, 92 GT, 01 mustang, and the current being a 90 vert.

Came across the mustang on Craigslist and she had to have it as it met her criteria- convertible, V8, 5speed, running and driving project.

Wire wheels were a PITA to get off. The tool that came with the car was homemade and poorly constructed. Had to order the correct one. In the meantime my wife bought some 10 holes to use temporarily.

Silly us for assuming, we pulled the wheels, and a 5 lug conversion had been completed. Luckily, I had an extra set of wheels laying around from a previous car.

My wife went ahead and removed the LeBra and spoiler. This is currently how it sits.

Yeah good choice on the wheels. And she looks a lot better without that spoiler. Welcome.

Thanks guys. We have some work ahead of us, but it's going to be fun nonetheless. She's trying to decide if she wants to keep the 18's on it now or move to a new wheel.
