Yes I do. Today I hooked the rear body harness to the main harness wrapped it & ran it to the trunk along with the electric fuel pump power wire.

There is an old saying; "Just a little everyday". Projects like this progress slowly, but if you do just a little everyday, it is amazing what you get done. :)

That is what I am doing a little each day. I was planning on the wiring taking the winter time. Yesterday & today I hooked the power wire to the washer pump, hooked the wire to the brake system warning switch, & hooked the wires to the horns, & hooked the power wire to the cooling fan relays.

Is that the standard 2 speed wiper or did you go for one of the intermittent models that are now available?

It is a intermittent switch & module out of a 1985 full size Ford truck. The harness plug in the Mustang harness fits the switch without any mods.

I have been sick with the flu all week & only started feeling better today so I spent a little time in the garage finishing up the "custom" r/s Mach-1 dash panel for the Coupe.






When I got the dash panel the wood grain applique was peeling so I decided to completely remove it & paint it satin black to match the l/s dash panel.

I acquired a aluminum driveshaft for the Mustang out of a 2000 Explorer 2WD 4 door 4.0 V-6 which is the same length as the stock Mustang driveshaft. Now I just need to replace the u joints & install the yoke for the T-5 trans.

I would be compelled to paint it Ford blue with a white screw stripe.

Today it was beautiful weather (70°) so I rolled the Mustang out of the garage & finished running the rear brake lines on the rear differential to the wheel cylinders.

Today was another beautiful day so I put the back of the Mustang up on jack stands to start working on the Lokar parking brake cable install to hook up the center mount parking brake.

Very limited room inside. I only have a 1 car garage that has the Mustang in it, a work bench, my tool box, air compressor, welder, table saw, band saw, small floor shelf unit, freezer, washer, & dryer. Mostly all the work is done in our 2 car wide driveway. The garage is so cramped I have to hang the front fenders from the ceiling. The pic below was from when I was rebuilding the rear & replacing the rear leaf springs during last winter.

Finished installing the Lokar parking brake cables from the rear drum brakes to the center mount parking brake handle assembly.
Here is where the cables from the rear wheels hook to the cable going to the handle assembly.

Here is the routing to the rear wheels.

Today I started removing the front windshield. It looks like at some previous time someone loaded it up with sealer to stop a leak. I can not cut through it with my windshield removal tool so I have to heat the sealer with a brazing torch & then start working the windshield loose with a putty knife. So far I got loose up the passengers side "A" pillar & part way across the roof.

Today after work I was able to get the windshield loose on the l/s "A" pillar & the rest of the way across the roof. I am hoping to have it out tomorrow afternoon.

Today I finished removing the front windshield. I was also able to remove most of the old sealer & found 2 rust holes that I will need to repair in the l/s "A" pillar. 



Here is all the old sealer that I have scraped off so far, & some pieces of the old factory vinyl top that was under the old sealer.
