Very nice, I can see and know the feeling of going outside the box. Of coarse everyone says you could have done this or that, I did put the new MSD fuel injection on a freinds Tiger and it still retained the stock looking aircleaner.
I went way outside the box with turbos and doing all the drag racing I do but i say its my car.
Good luck and enjoy

Billy, if you are out there, I have question about your custom spindles. It looks like you did something i was thinking of doing. Did you make a hybrid Ford/Sunbeam spindle? I was thinking of welding in a Ford axle piece in a Sunbeam upright. That way I can buy vented discs at any auto parts store.
Is that what you did?

Thanks.

Al, I'd like to hear more on Billy's front end work also. The rack and mounts especially. You can use the Sunbeam outer bearing and race. The inner would require a spacer inside the Mustang bearing to fit the Sunbeam spindle. You would have to compare both seals. Similar to this TR7 set up:
