Just wanted to also show off my previous project now I am on this forum. Current project is a 85 Fiero GT and this was my previous project.
The car is an 1966 Ford Mustang original with a 6 cylinder. Now the car has a 347 Stroker putting out about 400HP with a T5 5 speed transmission. Othe upgrades are a 4 point roll cage, front slotted disc brakes, front coil overs and vinyl wrap. The original colors when I bought it were extrior Cream white, interior: Cream White, Green and brown.

Nice! How's the T5 handling the 400 HP? Do you have to baby it?

T5 handles it great. Whole drive train was custom build. The rear end is a custom build 8". I know it's not as strong as a 9" but with it being build it seems fine and the 8" is known to have a lot less parasitic loss. I have about 6K miles on it now and no issues (other than a distributor cap failure). An I do drive it hard and take it to the drag strip a few times a year. It's a non timed event with only 1/8 mile so don't have any time on it. Based on timing it from a video I ran it about 6.67 on the 1/8 mile so I think it should do an 11 second 1/4 mile. Not too bad for N/A. It's very fun to drive but does not like corners like the Fiero.

Got any tips on cleaning scuffs off the flat black paint? One of mine is painted with the Mach I hood paint and there are a couple of spots where something has marked the car and it won't just wipe off. A Fiero dash did one of them and working it over might polish the paint?

Sorry, not sure. I wrapped mine so scuffs don’t really happen and if they do I have half a roll back.
