1989 Ford Mustang LX Description:

The good:

• I swapped in complete Cobra IRSo Subframe was acid dipper, e-coated and powder coated gloss black. Control arms, knuckles and diff housing were sand blasted and coated (gloss black powder coat for the upper control arms, gray paint for lower control arms and diff housing)

o New black suede headliner• New one piece headlights
• All new Kicker Speakers with new head unit and amplifier.
• New door seals / weather stripping
• New heater core in early 2016.
The not so good:
• One headlight has condensation and needs to be replaced
• Front tires rub at full turn
• No emergency brake
• Car has always had an oil leak since I've owned it - it's slow but there.
• The front center caps cannot fit over the front hubs and I've lost them.
• Needs rear alignment and torque check. It's close and drives fine but it could use a professional alignment.
• Seats are splitting and there are still a number of tan interior pieces.
• A/C does not work yet. I have replaced all components to switch to r134a except the evaporator. All components are new.
• Front turn signals are not functioning properly. They are not bright at all and I haven't gotten around to root causing / fixing.
• Door hinge pins need to be replaced.
• Door Beltline molding and side view mirror on the driver side needs to be replaced.
• The front brakes are stock and mediocre at best. The front suspension has lowering springs as I received it and could use an upgrade.
• The passenger front fender has some scratches / dents / rust.
• The rear wheels are not centered in the wheel wells side to side - this drives me nuts but doesn't cause any other issues.• Some of the threads on the ARP wheel studs are damaged from installation.• Headunit and Amp installation is functional but needs to be cleaned up and finished.• The paint is a bit faded - as far as I know it is the original paint.

I've tried to be as thorough in describing the car as possible. It's a good car given it's 30 years old - but I have another project car and one has to go unfortunately.
