PostSubject: guess what i did on my day off????   Wed Feb 11, 2009 3:25 am

i know this is not a zephyr or fairmont but today (TUESDAY) it was it was about 40 above .the sun was out . i had a day off and my back didn't hurt.
so i been thinking about the bumble bee and i wanted to get it running as a driver.



it had 6CYL 200 or 250(not sure which one at this time) and C-5 tranny, both had a very low milage on them . it still need a few thing to get it running.
well i remember the gas milage my 80 fairmont got with this combo was around 17mpg.


then i have a 1987 5.0&AOD tranny from crown vic that only had 72,000 miles before the 1owner car forgot what a stop sign was.


then i remember about the 6cyl K member and i happen to come across this V8 k member.that some one had put rebuilt rack and brakes on when the car was wrecked.


so on this nice sunny day. i got out to the tharapy room about 10am. started pulling the 6cyl/tranny and Kmember.


a little after 12 noon .i rolled the bumble bee out side for a bath of the under side,



at abut 2 pm inside she went to have the V8 K member was going in;



here photos of her brakes with 88GT front spings cut 1/2 coil off.




ok, it 4 pm and she is back on her 4 wheels waiting for the V8;

my next day off is saturday,so i'm hoping i can install the 87 5.0&AOD tranny then. because it taking up the other bay that i keep my winter driver E150 VAN in. so i don't have to sweep snow of it in the mournings.

so how was your day?








p.s.
here what the bumble bee look like when i got it;

That loosk awsome man, I love the early foxbody stangs.


You shoulda mention you were doing the swap, you dont need to swap K members to put the 302 in... Just alittle trimming.

Way cool. You got a lot done on it in one day. Looks like you got all the tools though!

I love the early 4 eye stangs!

Those are the best days off !!!!! Wish every one of mine was just like it. I have a shot at buying an '84 Hatch back Stang from Texas with low miles....think its like 24,000. All it needs is a headliner and a wash with wax !
