    If my wife taught welding I could do that, too! Looks pretty good considering you started w/dirtyish metal.

    Wow I have been a slacker posting. Got the exhaust welded up and back it. Took it to the track ac clutch failed on the way to the track. Entered the bracket race out in the frist round due to sleeping at the tree. Put a used ac clutch on. #becausestreetcar

ID:	1249177 Went out in the shop just so I could say I did something. No welding tonight just cutting and grinding. Cut the cross over out and started cleaning up the original welds. I am too stubborn to take it to a muffler shop I hope I didn't regret it.

    #grindernotwelder I think it will keep the exhaust in. The thin spots blow out very easy. I got some .20" wire two pieces side by side and I was able to get out to good metal.

    Would have turned out better if I realized why it started spitting was the tip needed changing, see original hashtag.

    One of the things on my list is to repair my H-pipe. It looks The like the used a different type of pipe for the cross over and it has rust holes in it. I was thinking it might be a good idea to weld a strap to connect the two sides before I cut the connecter out. Good idea or not worth the effort.

    Trying to get one thing done a day. Today I used my creditcard tool and got four new tires. It pained me greatly because I have tires in stock with good tread but they are/ were old (2004 &2007) figured better safe than sorry. The last time I bought new tires for a mustang was my 1993 GT Convertible in 2002, I was in college it was my only car at the time. The used market for 15" tires is dry rotted.

    Quite thoroughly! To the extent that I'm sending the 10 year old and his Dad my Lincoln welder - he wants to learn and I'm willing to support that.

    I pulled a stock shifter off the trans on the bench. The car currently has a Hurst shifter, it was on the trans in the 89, I have never taken it off or adjusted it. I have a Tri-Ax on the shelf that I pulled off the 98
