    AHA! OK...knowing what you did makes it much clearer what you are doing.

    Where did you have to trim the mustang chassis when you shortened it and narrowed it?

    I see what you did. Is the stock hood going to fit?

    I have a similar project in the works. I took a '66 Chevy Nova and cut out the firewall, floor and trunk and replaced it with a tube chassis and all C6 corvette aluminum lower arms, Custom upper arms, C6 transaxle and turbocharged LS3 with LS7 heads.
