The kit that got me back into building was the Revell '49 Merc kit when first released (see my username,LOL),but the Mustang made it stick.
Flocking looks good!

Determine how low you want to lower your Mustang by placing a few index or business cards under the chassis. When you decide where your height will be, mount the rotors to the suspension. Then you can mount the wheels to the rotors with plastic rod or drill into the rotor center with a drill bit slightly smaller than the wheel mounting pins.
If you have done everytthing correctly, your model will sit level. Keep in mind that lowering is limited to how wide a tire you use and how low you want to go.

Mounted it to the air tube.
A mockup on the engine.
I'll start on the airbox next.
More to come...

Here's the pics I promised days ago
This is the rear only modded chassis I got at the moment but ya can see whats removed from mine by comparing it to one of your unmolested ones. I removed the arm above the diff and removed the shaft tunnel for clearance After this is done ya cut the spring to the right height and install the rear as in the instructions Kinda ugly but is all hidden on a built model. Plus I don't fuss much bout the side the shelf sees.
Up front ya can see where my K member mounts on the frame are flat compared to the '10 frame in the background. this raises the K higher to the engine thus lowering the stance after this mod ya just gotta cut ya struts to the right height. If done right ya should actually still be able to mount the K as intended cause all the locating holes stay in the frame even where ya shave it down. Do these mods only after ya have selected wheels and tires because as said before they do limit how low the car can sit without major surgery to the wheel wells. Also do the front first so ya can use it to align the rear to the corect height ..... the front can only go so low while the rear can go as low as ya want .... one wrong cut and the car has a taildragger stance

So here is what the new stance looks like, I still have a little work to do up front, and the body has been cleared now too

I am going to look at more pics of the interior if I can find more, and then decide if i want to , part of it I think I can do, like the middle console and middle part of the dash, but the back seat I am not sure I want to try.
