Modifications

Drivetrain
Original 5.0 has a bad oil leak, probably rear main seal. Going to install a basic rebuilt 89 5.0 long block that was in my Cobra replica for less than 1K miles.

2nd pic is the engine to be installed, right after the rebuild.
Interior
#1, Original 143+K mile interior. #2, Re-doing in black.
Exterior
As of 12/16/12, have removed the convert. top fabric, front & rear bumper covers, GT ground effects, doors, fenders, hood, trunk lid, & entire interior. Stripped rear bumper cover & ground effects, sanded rear quarters, tail light area, cowl, door jambs (everything left on unibody), and trunk lid and painted Wimbleton White. Rear of car is back together, including trunk lid & trunk interior, tail lights, and ground effects up to the rear of the doors. Most of the interior is completed, including new seat upholstery, carpet, seat belts, and visors, rebuilt dash, console, and some trim pieces. Just a few odds & ends to finish. New top will be black.
Suspension
