Btw the 94/95 t5 shifter is in the wrong place to fit the hole in the floor a fox body t5 fits better.And boss spindles and brakes are just standard mustang parts.

the spindles are not standard parts. they use bigger bearings than standard parts. and you still have to open up the hole for a foxbody t5. the 94-95 trans has the shifter back farther and this is highly advantageous to not just me but anyone not wanting to have a huge 4speed style shift lever. also the 94-95 transmission has better synchros better blocker rings and a higher overdrive so i can cruise 70mph at 2000 rpm with my 3.70 gears. its pretty glorious. also could all future comments not assume im an idiot? that would be appriciated. im not saying i know everything or trying to be cocky but this is why i stopped posting here. just a bunch of people trying to drive anyone not like-minded out of the hobby

To hell with the haters, JT. I think it looks good at the stage it is. And I for one think that's the best idea I've heard in a long time, combining all your favorite years/styles into one. (personally I woulda tried for a Terminator style engine setup. Or better yet a twin screw pushrod 'plant! Lol) but all joking aside, thumbs WAY up!!

Ive seen it done before and personally like the idea and look. I would love to see how he shortend the dash to fit it. I have a 95 console in mine that doesnt exactly fit perfect, i took a heat gun to it and made the upper end match the radio bezel of my 69. Either way it works for me. I hated not having an arm rest.

No you don't. I had one in my 67 and didn't have a problem with it fitting in the stock shifter location.
