Slow and Low……that is the progress the car has taken on in the last few weeks! I have had a baby boy and that has slowed progress up on the build, but not to worry we are back at it and hitting it hard. I have got the motor and tranny back in place and done. We have installed a new booster and master cylinder and have all the brakes bled and finished. I have ordered the new gas tank, carb, alternator, and all of the other nickel and time your ass to death pieces.
The latest project has been lowering the merc’s stance. I did a 2″ drop in the back and a 3″ drop in the front. For the back I used Speedway Motors lowering block kit part # 910-43809 running $29.99 and for the front I used a set of coils out of a 1986-97 Ford Aerostar Moog Coil Spring part # CC850 running $60.00 and a set of Gabriel gas shocks part # 82026 running around $34.00.
