today I made a little shifter extension to bring it back closer to me a bit. Dont have the $$ to be buying a new one so this should work nicely

Keep after it man. As said previously the stance/wheels/etc you have done make a HUGE difference. 69 mustang is in my list of cars to own one day. When we were looking for my first car, it was between a 69 mustang and 69 camaro. Whatever we could find the best deal on. Had things been differently maybe my forum name would be Will69Fastback or Will69Mustang or something.

Definitely will watch the build up I can appreciate the LONG time build.

Well the motor took a ****. cant get good compression so its going to need a complete tear down & rebuild.... Im on a budget still, but any suggestions for affordable performance things I could do?

Specs from supposed rebuild in 2001:
-302 block bored .030 over
-new PAW flat top pistons(new rings & bearings) for about 10.5 to 1 Compression
-Ported exhausted openings on heads
-new water pump
-new timing chain
-new high volume oil pump
-roller tipped rockers
-performer rpm intake
-Edelbrock 1406 600cfm carb
-Crane Fireball II 290H cam(216* @ .050 and .484 lift, intake and exhaust)

Now for some cellphone pics before she died!!!

No worries, its all part of the hobby. Motor rebuild has been put on the back burner because Im toying with the idea of an ls1/t56 swap... Ill have to modify the tunnel, but I think I can get the motor between the shock towers with a gto pan... Still up in the air though. Anyone have any input(besides dont mix ford/gm) lol
