Its been a while since I had time to write anything. I have been able to spend a little of my saved up “mustang toy” money over the last couple weeks.
Here’s a current picture of my mustang. Buried beneath a cartop carrier, old receipts …. stuffed full of misc. cart parts like a center console, all the wiring and a ceiling fan. Well enough of that. Its time to take my space back.
I had a Mustangs Plus Gift certificate that I received in 2008. I wasn’t sure they would take it but guess what. They took it and within 5 days I had a new gas tank! Mustangs Plus Rocks!
I also found on craigslist a new radiator core support and an apron panel for $100.00. When I found the ad it was a couple weeks old so I didn’t think they would still be available but when I called he was in Vegas and said he could meet the following Friday.

The following week I noticed this same guy had a 8.8 inch rear end from a 2000 GT mustang for sale. I called him immediately. I explained to him I couldn’t make it out to look at it till the next week. He said he had a couple calls about it already but no one made an offer. He said since we had done business before if I wanted it it was mine. Of course I told him yes and made arrangements to meet last week. Oh, did I forget to mention he only wanted $75.00. Awesome.

Today was almost as much fun. I finally am going to make my MIG welder what it’s supposed to be. I finally purchased a bottle of 75/25 Argon/CO2 mix. I should have some time tomorrow to play with it. I am going to start by welding a weld cart together . Should be fun. I will post some pictures.
I also bought a quart of primer it’s a brand I hadn’t heard of before. Sikken, I asked for PPG but they didn’t carry any PPG products. This is the only paint supply store I have found, so I went ahead a bought a quart. I figure if I don’t like it I can try and find a PPG supplier in town somewhere. I plan on starting with the engine compartment to get proficient before I tackle body panels and frame rails.
