Not sure of a color yet. Don't know if I want to go two tone or a solid. Thoughts?

What was the original color? I'd like to go with original color on mine but I wish it had been Sea Sprite green, not Meadow green.

Not sure I had not ran the numbers. But if decided to go with a two tone I was looking at a royal blue up top and a silver blue at the bottom.

Fuel Tank Etc

I am doing the same that you have done with the Mark VIII IRS. Have you figured out where you will put a fuel tank? Also, what springs did you use in the back? Did you have to trim them? Thanks

I hadn't gotten that far yet. I know there are a few other guys that are doing the Mark VIII conversion. So if you come up with a gas tank option let me pass it on. As far as springs, not sure yet what on there now were just mock up springs.

Since the Cougar and T-bird about 91-96 use the same basic IRS with springs, I went to pic-a-part and bought them. chuck

I haven't installed them yet. Springs were cheap at pic-a-part and I have the bags from the Mark VIII purchase. If you decide to go springs, more parts at pic-a-part available. Upper spring attachment and lower arms for springs from a Cougar or t-bird. chuck
