2/21/06; interesting '93 Birdie
« on: February 22, 2007, 11:34:14 PM »
This one has been redone to simulate a '49-50 Ford coupe.








This car was just finished in the last few weeks ... Execution pretty decent, Except the extruded aluminum bumpers which seem kinda tinny, but orig bumpers are too narrow, if you could find them............

Looks clean.  I know fiberglass can be a little tricky to work with and requires lots of prep work...    How was the fiberglass work?  The one I saw at Carlisle was wavy.

The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

Glass work ok, except the trunk lid was kinda high?? think it could be adjusted. Its ongoing. A couple weeks ago, it was in primer, no bumpers....

I wonder if there is more room underneath that hood?  Could you have a 5.4L intake/ blower without an ugly wart!!!
 :P

Saw the car and driver at Spring Hills Sat. nite car show Yup there are two shows weekly. This one at Hardees. smaller , a few different cars, maybe 50 car turnout? anyhow the guy who owns it did the glass work himself at 74 years old! :o He opened the bonnet and it looked as tho maybe i could close the hood on a 5.4 intake , but certainly not  my blower... Thing is the mustang kit would fit, but thats 2 grand more just for a different mounting plate? makes no sense..... ;) Also its a 92 bird with the HO  5.0 engine and 61,000 miles on her 8)
