Getting started

My FFR coupe will arrive in less than a week. I've been pulling parts off the Mustang, but took a pause to clean up the shop and get it ready. Here are some photos of the shop:

This is my current fleet. That's my Suburban, Stephanie's Grand Caravan, the donor Mustang, and my RX-7 in front.
Here's the donor Mustang. Those lights are very bright halogens, for paint work. If you look closely, you can see that the car has no steering wheel. I had already pulled the steering column when I decided I'd rather turn the car around. So I had to jack up the front end each time I wanted to turn the wheels. Did about a 5-point turn in the shop.
One of the best things is that there's no air compressor in the shop. Instead, it's in the shed next door. It's plumbed in to two locations, as shown here. With the door closed, you can barely hear a hum when the compressor comes on.

How much did the mustang cost you?
