Gone. I took all of it out. I still have the original seats, front and rear, but the carpet and insulation are gone. The headliner is gonna come out when I redo the interior. I plan to get these seats:
or something similar. This set is $700 (£532) for a set of two.
These are the other ones I like but they are $820 (£623) EACH
The motor I want is about $10,000 (£7,598). 600+ to the wheels!!
My total projected costs (without the 10K motor) is about $40,000 (£30,388)
. For about 2K more, I could buy a brand new Acura TL.
But, this car is worth more to me than a TL, as nice as they are. I love mustangs, even before I knew ANYTHING about cars, I loved them. I remember when I was young, like 6, I was out somewhere with my mom and there was a car show. I saw what I believe was a 67 mustang and I fell in love. Ever since than I have wanted one. My first car was a fox body 86 Stang and I had plans to do so much to that.
I don't like how everyone and their cousin drives one, but hey, it's an affordable sports car. If the Vette was priced the way the Stang was, it'd be a "me too" car. I only have respect for the good stangs that can hold their own, not the ones driven by a little girl cause she told mommy and daddy she wanted one or these "pretty boys" who get them to "pick up chicks", which BTW doesn't work.
I know people who do it, but involving them would only make my cost go up. As is, I'm gonna need to employ a body shop to replace the rear quarters, floor pans and part of one of the frame rails.
NOTE: I added the euro conversions because I figured it'd be easier to relate to what I'm spending if it's in your currency as well (for those of you overseas). If I read that something cost you 532 Euros, I'm not going to realize that it's equal to 700 USD and it's gonna seem a lot cheaper than it is.
