um, hi

I'm Mike. I'm in school for mechanical engineering (was not aware you needed to be fluent in Chinese and Hindi to do well). I love to swim and play drums but school gets in the way . I like metal (not the kind you do, your kind puts me to sleep).

Right now my daily driver is a 2000 Ranger with the 2.5L version of the beloved Mustang 2.3L lima. I got it to haul drums and get decent mileage, and because I've always liked the 1998-2000 body style.

I've had a 1984 Mustang LX convertible for 9 years now and have nothing to show for it. All I've done is throw parts away because the person who was supposedly helping me build a "nice car" wanted a totally stripped out shell of a vehicle. That's not my idea of nice. So I'm in the midst of scrounging up parts to make it a whole car again. So far I've gotten an 8.8 rear from a junk yard and a 2.3L from a 1991 automatic car. I really need a 5-speed and compete car wiring harness to get rolling with it again. My neighbor has volunteered to help when I need it as he's rebuilt cars and knows how frustrated I am with the "help" I've gotten so far. I just want to get it rolling, get mileage and have it look nice. That's all.

Anyways, I'll be posting up odd questions here and there as I piece the car back together.

-mike

No time line. I'm just doing what I can when I can. Getting it running under it's own power will hopefully be done by the end of summer. I don't know what my income will be starting fall semester so how much gets done after that is impossible to tell.

Nice, are you keeping the '81 nose on it? A lot of guys update but I kinda like to see the older ones rolling around. I'm keeping mine '84 looking.

Re: um, hi

Mines going 4 eye all the way. It will roll as an 81 all day. The only change is going to be a rear wing and a cowl hood.
