Hi Bud,
  Looks very cool, I have missed seeing you at Sat. night cruise nights this last summer. I hope this means you will have this beast running for next spring.  Don't know if you know this or not but I have over 700 miles on my BBF pro street mustang this past summer and I don't think you have even seen it yet. We have to get together. I had the Pinto out quite a few times this summer as well and sometimes had both cars at Hardee's when I could find a friend to drive the stang.
Later
Tim R

thanks everyone for the kind words. for those of you that may think it takes a lot of fancy  tools  to do a project like this you would be wrong. (sure would help to have them)  all we have is a 4.5 grinder-14'' chop saw & a welder. so those of you that think you can't  YOU CAN!!!   Bud

Well the Pinto is back in the air again, hope the next time it comes down it will be for good. Still have quite a few things to complete while up and rotatable. With headers now made I can finish items that needed to route around the headers, fuel line, wires etc. I will keep snapping pictures as we go and share with those interested.
