Mustang Help

Hello everyone! I'm new to the thread. About 6 months ago I was in need of a car before I transferred to college this spring and my dad helped me get a red '93 Ford Mustang for only $1000! He runs great! No problems. He just looks a little loved. So I am really wanting to fix my car up. I guess restore him like new would be the way to put it. However, I am totally clueless on where to begin because I've never done anything with cars. How do I know what parts to get for the interior? Then where do i find them? What do I need to do before I paint it? Just how do i get started basically. I'd really appreciate the help! Thanks!

Re: Mustang Help

latemodelrestoration.com has tons of fox body parts(79-93s are called fox bodies). Since they are getting older thats probably the best bet vs going to a junk yard as they will be hard to find any better.

Foxes are great cars! is it the 4 cyl or v8?

Re: Mustang Help

Before you start dumping money in your car make sure it's structurally sound ,check rear frame rails and torque boxes! These cars are infamous for rust and wear in those places!

Just a heads up before you go divin into it.It takes a lot of serious commitment and dedication to see great results. Oh and a whole lot of R&D on the trick and secrets to get there quicker and safer.Cost effective too.Another great shop with good pricing is
americanmuscle.com fordperformanceparts.com aka Ford Racing.

Re: Mustang Help

I had to laugh just reading you call your Mustang He or Him LOL
Nothing wrong with it at all just different to see usually we see her, she and lady names for them.

If you can also check on craigslist for people selling good used parts that you may need vs brand new to help save some cost also. I seem to find a lot of good parts on their for good prices at least around my area.

Good luck and keep us posted on your project.

Thank you all so much! My car is a he. His name is Mordecai! (I'm slightly odd. At least thats what I'm told because I named my car.) That was great information though. It's a great place to start. It's going to be like my project while in college. Just something to try to do for fun/stress relief.

Just careful what you name it, I named one of my cars after a really hot ex I had, it was all good till my wife found out. I would get a good punch everytime I said I was taking Monica out for a ride.
