So - I've previously built a '68 Charger, and just finished a '89 R32 GTR Skyline.

So I figured I'd go a little more custom than just paint...

Anyway - here:

Shelby GT 350 Motor.
R34 GTR Skyline wheels painted black.
Dumped.
Disc brakes front and rear.
Shaved body.
Modern Bucket seats in the classic interior - made slightly modern by colouring.


That's it so far - now progress pics:

After laying paint on the body.
Shaved the locks, handles, etc.
Shelby hood and grille.
Posted Image
Pretty much how the R34 wheels sit on the Mustang - now they're gloss black with disc brakes behind them.
No steering detail due to the fact I had to cut up the front end to get it this low.

So she's engine bay, exterior and interior detail only.
Worth it though - she's one of my Dream cars - and I'm building her how I'd like her to look. (yes.. the '34 GTR wheels I want on a Mustang..)

More pics to come.

More piccies.

Posted Image
Interior now, it's Semi Gloss black for all the leather/vinyl.
It has Metal grey trim in the sides as well as the bucket seats - but it doesn't stand out enough in photos.

The Bucket seats are R34 GTR seats, Matte Black to simulate Fabric.

Posted Image
My gauges - Shelby spec.

Posted Image
Disc brakes.
R34 wheels.
Whatcha's think?

Posted Image
The donk - thinking about wiring it up - I'd like to give it a shot.
So we'll see.

I'll wait to see the finished build. I normally don't care for painted wheels, but we'll see.

Ok - so I think I ended up going pro touring on it.

Sticking with my Satin Silver look with the gloss wheels.

Engine and interior are in - but I buggered up the RHD rear Shelby window - good thing all the mistakes are on the right hand side - because she's a Left hand display model anyway.

:-D

Pics soon - just gotta shoot the front and rear panels as well as the hood, put some wiring in the engine bay and we're all good for a display model.

Right now - I gotta mow the lawn.
lol.

UPDATE.

So - the wheels are on, engine and interior are in, front and back are done, just gotta finish the under side detail (making a low profile K-Frame for it so it doesn't look retarded.
Basically she's pretty much done, just needs final engine details, wiring and cables, etc - gotta get some super fine wire for all of that - going to make a whole loom then just glue it in.

Pics:

Waiting for engine bay goodies.

How's that for rake?
Disc brakes, gloss black wheels, and bog stock body. :-D
Posted Image
Gauges are painted. :-D
Posted Image
loooooooooowwww - everything is tucked up and the engine has been raised by 2mm on the engine mounts so the GT350 sump clears the ground with a K-frame (soon to be) under it.
Posted Image
Bucket seats.
Posted Image
Gotta add parkers and indicators to her.

Then she's done.


Hope you guys like it, she's not perfect - but I made some sacrifices to get her where she is.


Next project:
Posted Image
Yes, that is a '69 GTX that is being shaved and smoothed out.
And yes - that is the beginnings of a full custom sub frame to get her to sit about 4-5 mm off the ground.

Pro Touring baby. With some deeeeeep dish.

You have an under carriage pic? Kinda like to see how the frame turned out with mods to make the wheels fit.

hahaha - the under carriage looks like ###### - I just want to clean up the front with a K-frame - just for pete's sake.

The rear wheels are cut up so they fit over the rear leaf springs - which are mounted in the stock position, but have the ends cut off so they sit lower.. which is still pretty high - lol.


I'll grab one for you anyway.

In the mean time while I wait for stuff to appear from no where to wire up the engine bay - I've started work on my '69 Pro touring GTX.
