Thanks for the support. It will be a really cool project if all goes as planned.It'll be fun to see completed.
The trick is to keep your motivation at the same level as your ambition.
As far as the concerns about mismatching brands. I guess I'm not as worried as I'm basically just retrofitting an entire truck into a mustang body. The only carryovers besides the body/suspension are the rear end (a custom driveshaft is easy to have built), power steering system (with swap to factory gt hydroboost, no biggie...only hard part is making a bracket but thats just some fab work) and wiring up factory hvac/heater controls to the nissan harness. This will be a bit tricky but should be doable as long as I stay consistant with fuse rating/wire size. I will wire the front/rear/dome lights to nissan harness but thats not too involved
