Anyone ever done this?

Anyone know of any websites chock full of info regarding the swap?

Anyone wanna donate a 5-lug conversion kit to a poor, but lovable Fox Chassis owner?

Seriously though, has anyone ever done this? What kind of problems did you run into? Did you also roll your fenders so the larger 5-lug aftermarket rims would fit? What were your wheel offsets after the conversion?

Thanks Jeff (it is Jeff, right?)

While I already had that info, I was looking for something a little more specific.

These websites:
http://mjbobbitt.home.attbi.com/mustang/5lug.html and http://www.nomotivation.com/5lug.cfm seem to fit the bill real well.

I had an IM conversation with a buddy of Ed's (ragtopjr) who has already done a conversion. He made me aware I wouldn't be able to use the chrome version of the '95 Cobra R's (the rim of my choice) unless I used Ranger axles, because the offset would be too much. Since an IM conversation is only so helpful, I was hoping someone might know of a website or two (exactly like the ones I found, listed above) that would clearly state the different options for the conversion, and the pro's and con's for each version.

I still hafta read everything listed on the above web pages, but I'm pretty sure I have the info I need to tackle this upgrade.
