    Tends to be a cycle of not posting so often. Graduated Electrical Engineering in May. Trying to get back on the Mercury Project. Got sidetracked because got an offer I couldn't refuse. Got a 2002 Mustang GT manual for dirt cheap because it needed a motor. Spent a month on getting it running. Since I finished the Mustang, I decided to continue the Mercury. I got a donor roof for it since the original roof somehow in the span of two years rusted by itself(I technically didn't attack it early enough, life got in the way). Good News is the project continues and should be close enough that I should be able to throw primer on it hopefully in a month or two hopefully.

    Congrats on your engineering degree. It takes A LOT of work - mine is in petroleum so I am familiar. Best of luck with the Mustang. That was a great deal of work on the Merc - looks good!

    Well. Pulled the trigger and decided I want to do a manual swap on the car. Said to myself since the roof is replaced and the interior is still not in, might as well manual swap it now. Going with a tr3650.

    I like the manual on the Mustang. It sold me on the Manual transmission.

    Transmission came in. Brought more parts than expected. Good news is I have an aluminum driveshaft and May install at the same time the 4.10s the old axle had.
