Help on installing a SN-95 Dash into a 1993 Fox

Hello, I've began work on installing a dash from a 1999 Cobra into my 1993 Fox Mustang. I have found that the console lines right up with the E-Brake, shifter and mounting bracket. The dash is another story. I have begun trimming a little at a time and it seems to be working; but I could use some advise on where exactly to cut. I also need to know about the steering column. If I can use the old fox column or use the SN-95 If there is anyone who has done this conversion and could give me few pointers please LMK...thanks

Why would you even attempt this? The door panels and rear coupe pieces from the SN95 are not going to fit at all. Your car is a hatch, and the SN95's arent, its never gonna work back there. Since the dash and door panels and everything flow right into one another.... Dude, I just dont think its gonna work. They are too different.

Hey Man,Well, I thought about that and plan on using the Door Panels from the '99 in my car. At least part of them. I'm building custom door panels to match the dash. I know it sounds like it would not look right; but just that dash sitting in my car looks so cool. Believe it or not, it does flow with the car.

Oh I wasnt trying to say it wouldnt look good, although I dont really care for the SN95 interior particularly, I just think that the back half of the car will be a mess. The rest will likely not be too bad. I wish you the best of luck, cause I think youll need it.

Thumbs up

Well, so far so good. I've cut quite a bit off the front of the dash all the way to the defrost opening ; but it seems to be fitting the contour of the car. I'll try to post some pics here soon..LATER!!

SWEET!! Man, good luck, it's going to be a nice interior. I've seen more than one fox with this conversion, so I know it can be done. Easy? Nope, and you know that lol. But I know of a guy swaping an entire drivetrain from an 03 Cobra into a 60's mustang... including interior. Let us know how it turned out!!

That looks pretty cool. It seems like it made the interior a lot smaller though. BTW, your avatar rules Wiz75!

Cool

Thanks for all the support guys!! I'll try to post more pics soon. The next step is getting the SN95 steering column installed and the joys or wiring!!:hihi: Just remember one simple rule I've always lived by when it comes to cars

are you talking about the article in mustangs and fords this month with the yellow "SN65" on the cover? body of a 65 fastback and frame/ floorboards of the cobra?
