Remember, you asked for opinions!

First off let me say, the car is looking very shap. Of course i'm a sucker for red paint, but it is the nicest color on a mustang. The engine also is looking good. But i have to say using the monte carlo bar and export brace to use nylon ties to hold wires up is not working for me. I'm dealing with some of the same issues myself. I'm planning to try to run my wires like they do in late model vehicles. A few flexable plasic conduits attached along the inner fender lines. Most likely i'll go with the basic black ones but i may try to find some red ones. Plastic ties will probably break down after a year or two with the heat from the engine.

The only other thing that jumps out is the wheels without hubcaps, but i'm sure you planning somthing there.

Keep up the good work. that red paint will turn some heads

I agree. I was using the nylon ties for a temporary fix. I think im going to try and find some trim rings and center caps for my wheels. Then next year buy some crager SS's, but right now money is tight.

I like it!! BUT, I also agree that the nylon ties gotta go.

I'm curious about your hood. It's looks like only four pins are holding it down. Are you using the hood latch?

The car is looking great. You've got to like the white top. Good job.
