Another baby step: came home tonight (after a 2-midnight) to find my two front tires on the front porch! inching closer every day now!
....... and almost forgot...... before I went to work, my friendly USPS mailman dropped off my strut to spindle bolts (that I thought I ordered months ago, but apparently never did) I’ll spare you the picture of the bolts! :)

Another piece of the puzzle! Can’t say enough about the quality of MM parts!!
Working this whole weekend, so now to find time to get this buttoned up, where I’ll just be waiting on wheels.

Ordered the Z23 ceramic pads from Powerstop on Rock Auto (stangnet discount code of course). I’m really just looking for decent stopping with as little dust as possible. Hopefully these are the ticket!
Still praying those wheels are available for order on the 23rd. Off from work the week of 27th, so really hoping to get this on the road that week. Fingers crossed.

Edit:
And this is something real simple....... but I ordered Ford dust caps from Tasca. It’s amazing how you can tell something is a quality part in a somewhat insignificant dust cap, as opposed to some cheap plastic Chineee knock off!

I just wish they would let me place the order, then say they were back ordered. But right now, you can’t even place an order until you get notification they are in stock.

So, I decided to check the LMR site to see if there was an update on the wheels. There was an update alright. Now it says they are expected on Nov 1. Not real happy right now.
I was about to order some different ones, but my wife and daughter convinced me to wait. They’re right....... I would always be looking at it wishing I had the wheels I want.
COVID sucks!!!

Sorry man. I'm in the same boat, looking at engine items currently due to the delay on wheels. Took over 2 months for ones that we got for my son, so I feel ya.

Yeah, this car has kind of become my “baby” so to speak. It’s not great, but it’s mine, and I don’t want to settle on the look I have for it in my mind. I really wanted to enjoy this fall with it...... but I guess I’ll just look forward to next spring, and improve whatever else I can over the winter.

What wheels are you waiting on? and couldn't you just pick up a cheap set of bullets or waffle wheels to drive the car on for the fall season?
