I finally decided to pay for some webspace so I can have my site up again and use the tools I like to use for editing...

It's going through a makeover at this time and I decided to publish as I change instead of finishing the makeover then publishing....so basically it's a mess still.

Home page is here:

http://www.a351must2.atfreeweb.com

One unlinked page is here (my '74 which no longer exists in the world):

Hey Darryl! How've you been? Heck, where've you been? Must've been busy trying to play with that jelly-bean car now too...LOL.

Nice looking page so far. If you want, you can remove or change the link to my MII Links page...I've got it on a new server myself (that clark.net link is dead), and it's also on MustangII.org.

I've been struggling with the home page for 5 days now...I haven't even come close to touching the links page and it has not been updated for over a year. All the non-external links should work, the external links have not been tested/updated yet.

I need to narrow and shorten the home page...I was trying to get it to look right on 800X600, but wasn't thinking and made the whole page 800X600. The menu was done in Photoshop and is a PITA to redo.

I'm also reflooring my kitchen and dining room, re-wiring/re-plumbing the hot tub, and working on my 2.3L turbo right now...too many projects at once!

And the little jellybean car had to be modified to my satisfaction...it was a step down from the Mach 1 for both handling and power, but now it's about equal and gets 22mpg.

2.0L DOHC Turbo, Gillis manual boost controller @ 15PSI, aftermarket front(adjustable) and rear sway bars, Injen Intake w/ K&N filter, removed lower mass air honeycomb, Autometer pillar mounted air/fuel and boost guages.

Are those the 17's you were talking about on your T-Top?

I found some 17x8's from a '94 in the paper for $85 each, and I'm thinking about getting them.

Nice wheels..

yes, the 17X8 wheels are on the t-top...any '94 or newer wheel requires converting to 5-lug and spacing for FWD offset. The Granada 11" rotors will space the front perfectly, but the rear requires 1/2" spacers or a wider rear end. The Mach 1 has 16X7 4-lug and the '78 Coupe has 16X7.5 5-lug wheels.

I found some wheels off a '94 Mustang GT. Would they work? I don't know the bolt pattern, backspacing or anything about them. They are 17x8's

I saw your site.. where do you order used wheels?

I can get the '94 GT wheels for $75 each probably.. is that a good deal?

Tires will cost me about $100 each at www.tirerack.com

Then I'll have to pay someone to put them on and balance the wheels for me.

As I said, anything '94 or newer is 5-lug...it'll cost a bit more than just $75/wheel, plus $100/tire...expect another few hundred to convert the front to 5-lug and some more to convert the rear to 5-lug.

I spent around $1K to convert mine to 5 lug with the 17" wheels and the almost bald tires that came on the 17s.

I also ended up going with tubular upper control arms and had to completely remove the fenderwell lips from the front and rear fenders.

I am going to do the 5 lug conversion in the next 6 months most likely. Would you happen to know what bolt pattern and offset? I will get the 17x8's if they have a 4.5 bolt pattern.

'94-'01 17" X 8" are 5.95" backspacing ... that's the only one I know though.
