    Dad came over and we drove the mustang down to wayne county. They were having a little trouble with the lights. Came home with 6 slips, made one or two that did not record. A couple just got time and not mph. With street tires it spins even rolling into the gas. It feels like it is shacking the tires or some wheel hop. 60's where really bad best of the night was a 2.08 Best complete time slip: 2.164, 9.311 @ 77.172 I made one other pass after that: 2.156, 9.299 but didn't get mph. Lots of room for improvement but I had a good time.

    Got the driver's door panel on how do you like my new temporary window crank? I was happy when I found the rear speaker wires still in the trunk! Tested the left side it worked. I need to buy 2 speakers for the rear. There are two square holes in the package tray that I want to mount them in. The roll bar goes through the factory speaker holes. Any advice on buying speakers? I am not an audiophile, but would like it to sound "good" looking to spend $30-40 no more than 50 for the pair. The fronts are kicker....

    Worked on the window crank this weekend. Pictures are old crank and the reason a $10 plastic handle will not work. Custom nut. Attached. Because I am a grinder not a welder. Now I need a ratchet to rais lower the window not vice grips. Tonight I put the radio in and one speaker. Took alot of Google foo to figure out I had to remove the wiring harness for the "premium radio" to hook it up to the standard harness.

    Finished a small project that has nothing to do with getting the car to the track. When I bought the 98 GT it had a white shift knob in the console. Well it didn't fit. So I put it on the shelf. Well I finally drilled out the brass insert and taped. I didn't realize that it had an aftermarket handle that I had just crosstreaded a stock knob on. I taped it out to the stock thread size. I had a stock handle that had been cut down so i switched the handle out two.

    That's probably the best way to handle it. But I would like to keep my spool, axles and c-clip eliminator if possible. And the lower control arms are relocated lower on brackets. I hope to live with it or fix what I have.

    Picking away at it last night: Passenger seat in. Put the trunk board and insulation, over top the spare. #streetcar need to buy an extra deep socket the tire iron will not reach with the long studs on the end.
