2005 Mustang GT... FINALLY!! Installed My Engine Today.

For the first time in over 7 weeks the sun showed itself today, giving me time to finally get my engine in. Now I can finish the rest in the garage without having to depend on weather.

It's a big milestone for my project and for me personally. Before I owned this car I didn't even change my own spark plugs. Now I'm swapping engines. That's what the mod bug can do to a person. We'll see if I can get it back together and running, but for now, just getting the engine in is a big load off my mind.

Thanks! Wait 'til you see the chrome under the green plastic wrap. I spent a lot of time and effort assuring it would look as good as it ran.

That looks great!!! Makes me want to just bypass the shop and install my engine, provided I'm able to get it.

Thanks for all the kind words. But I have a long way to go. I won't be accepting any congratulations until I can drive it and until it's purring. Or rumbling or whatever it's going to do.

I wanted to wait to put the spoiler on last. But I couldn't. It's on now and looks freakin' awesome. As you know.
