Kaase-9 Boss mustang started today, 4/11/08, with pix, #5

Today we took the project Mustang apart. It was nice to be working on a new car, with no dirt or road stuff on it. It was really not a bad car to work on. My longtime friend Carl Baker was visiting from Ohio, and he started taking parts off before lunch. By 5 we had the engine out, which wasn't bad for us considering we knew nothing about new street cars.
Tomorrow we are going to install a dummy block and heads, with the trans and bellbousing. Motor mounts are an unknown at this point.
I have 7 pictures to post, but they will be one at a time. I have better luck this way. .... Kaase

The A/C lines go completely around the engine compartment. Some may have to be moved

I am jealous. I wish I could be doing that swap. Looks like you got a good start so far. What are you going to do for a rear end setup. I assume a 9 inch..

It's cool to see you working on it! Sometimes us regular guys get the feeling the big names in motorsports don't really get their hands dirty.

Big ole thumbs up!

Jon,

You are doing a fine job, and I'm proud of you! But man, you are going to have to push like heck in order to have it ready for the Bash :!: That's only two weeks away :!:

Keep up the good work

I was in Gainesville GA this week but could not get a way from work. Next time I am there I am scheduling a day to just come by the shop and check this project out. Hopefully it wont be that long before I am back there.
