1990 Mustang LX 

Donor Teardown


This week, we made a lot of progress tearing down the donor mustang.  Following the manual from FFR, we have gotten through the removal of many things including the steering shaft, front wiring harness, rear wiring harness, gas tank, exhaust headers, and the computer.  We are currently working on the engine removal.  Since William is spending all of his time working on the project, I have been elevated to "Web Page Flunky".  So I'll be updating, until there is a family dispute on "The RIGHT WAY to do things"... I'm sure you all know what I mean.
