I'm using the rear from a Mongram 94 Mustang.

Before cementing the rear together I hollowed out the axle tubes enough for a 1/16" rod to go through the inside ends, then after the cement dried, I cut out the center housing. This needed to be done to get the pinion angle correct.

The pieces ready for assembly along with a new crossmember for the rear to mount to..

You can see in this pic that I'm starting to narrow the rear just enough to tuck the tires. Again cut, drill and pin. The left side is done.

Posted Image

The rear in place. You can also see the additions to the frame for the notches along with new beefier rear crossmembers..

Posted Image

It's starting to look like something!

I decided to toss the coilovers and go with airbags.

The bags.

Front

I added some braces to the frame. It still needs a trans mount, but I'm waiting on an engine so I don't know where it needs to go.

She sits pretty low!

While I'm waiting on a motor, I decided to work on the interior. It's now cemented to the chassis floorpan, the start of the tunnel for the rear to tuck into, and a platform to mount the dash/console from a 39 Wagon Rod. The seats are also from the Wagon Rod. The dash fits the windshield contour perfectly.

While I had the Wagon Rod open, I played around with it for about 20 minutes, this is what I came up with so far.
