        Today I installed the rear brakes / parking brakes . I went with a stock upgrade to Power Stop brakes . With the Explorer 8.8 there isn't much to choose from when it comes to upgrades . I could have changed out the axle ends to a 9" style but that would mean new axles etc ... . This set up should work just fine .....

          Today I finished up the fuel pump/sender wiring . I built a electrical panel to mount the fuel pump relay and breaker plus whatever else that might need power . I'm sure it's overkill and not needed but who knows ?. I also plumbed in the fuel tank vent into the top of the filler tube with some 3/8 stainless tube ( leftover scrap ) . I bent up some trans cooler lines with the same tubing two days ago . Man ! that is one thing that will drive you crazy ! . You lay under the vehicle and measure and bend your tubing and try to fit it and bend again and refit and bend and straighten and rebend and throw it away and start over and measure etc etc etc ...... It doesn't look as good as I want but this could drive me crazy as I said ! . I will cover all the wiring in Powerbraid .

                This weekend I decided to dig out 1000 grit and wet sand the clear , nice and smooth . The plan is to spray on another gallon of clear . Also as I mentioned a while back , I want to see how the new Challenger headlights would work on this project . I ordered some off Ebay and have mocked them up to see how they will work . Here's some pictures , I still need to move them around , up and down , back and forth , left and right etc... plus the bumper is just set in place , the jury is out at the moment .

                        I wanted to share this video about a small local company that I've dealt with since I was 16 ( 42 years ago) and got into cars .

                            Too bad about the old building but excellent that the shop lives on.

                              Nice, this thing is going to look menacing.

                                Here's an update on what's going on . FedEx dropped off my wheels yesterday but the driver somehow left a box on the truck that contained the wheel lugs , valve stems and a few other parts . That box will now be delivered on Tuesday since Mondays a holiday . I was wanting to get the tires mounted today and get them on the car but now I'll have to wait till next Saturday , damn ! . Moving on , I've wet sanded the car with 1000 grit so now I can mask the car , clean it and clear it . Also I've modified the headlight housings and finished up fabricating the headlight mounting bases , I think these are going to look killer when their done .
