Paul, looks great and what a great choice for the motor!
Curious, what paint did you use for the frame?

Matt,
I used Summit Racing, two part epoxy black. Kind of messy but really a tough coating. And it can be patched if needed.

Been a while since I posted an update. While the guys are playing in Texas at the spring meet, I'm making a little progress

Only with Hurricane:

2015 Mustang IRS - 15" Pin Drive wheels, Wilwood brakes and a working emergency brake. It gets pretty crowded, but it works

Paul, A couple of questions:

1. what 5-pin wheels/adapters are you using?

2. do you plan to keep the wilwood cluch/brake pedals or make your own OEM appearance ones?

Bobby
the wheels are Vintage Wheels and adapters.

Yes, I've already converted the pedals. Look closely at the first picture, the one showing the engine in the frame, you can see the back of the pedals with the AC pedal attached.

I'll shoot and post a picture from the front tomorrow

I love that dropped footbox design of the Gen II cars!

Building a Shelby teaches one a new skill set - How to Stuff 10lbs into a 5lb bag  :P

Jason worked with me to develop a set of headers that would clear my modified footbox & steering setup. The lower part of the outside of the footbox gets crowded with brakelines and clutch lines.

Used a Mazda slave cylinder and made a bracket to mount it to the Shelby block and align with the clutch fork. Had to 'reverse' mount it so the bleed port would be in the correct orientation.

Not all share my enthusiasm over this, but the building portion really is fun  :)  Each day presents a new challenge and a test to my skills.

Motor and transmission in place. Driveshaft ordered - 12" is that a driveshaft or a coupling?  The driveshaft loop mounts on the rear X Frame bolts. Came from Summit Racing. I chose to weld it together rather than use all the bolts that came with it. Just looks a little cleaner.

Now that test fitting is done, I can mount the cockpit tub

Looking really good.  Yep, I enjoyed most the build, modification, design, etc.

Paul, it looks like you are using the old slip on style headers or are you going to mod these as well?

The purist in me called for the slip joint style. Flanges belong on Factory Five's, Hurricane is more period correct.

Trying to convince Alec and Jason to use slipjoints again. The flanges only make for more work and clearance issues.

What sort of ground clearance are you expecting with that oil pan?
