Welcome to TF. Looks like a nice project even with the surface rust. My TC was that color originally(now black). Twilight blue metallic I think? Pretty color.

Yeah I was going to leave it just like that.......... BUT getting pulled over 3 times in one week made me change my mind lol. even though its not my daily i do give it a lot of highway miles and it sticks out like a sore thumb on the road.
Gonna toss some kind of black on it and tint the windows and have at it.

Well, two more arkies on board.

You know there's other states you can move to, right?

I'm in Central area kinda north of Little rock area. I don't go to LR but once a year if that.

I bought out a bunch of TF stuff from a guy who did a 89 LX project, he was in the Conway area. A few months after I bought all his stuff, he moved and within a few days of closing his old house got hit by the Vilonia tornado (the second one in '14). I don't know if his TF stuff was cursed or what? I sold most of it. Used a little of it for my 93 lx which I still have, and just a few minutes ago just loaded it into the trailer so it can go to paint, again. It was at one shop for about a year and I'm quite bitter about that. Going to a different shop now.
'93 Mustang 2.3T swapped. LA3, Stinger FMIC 3" down elbow and 3" exhaust.
