Hey man just found your the content.....working on the mustang reminds me of the one a buddy of mine has.......he took a fast back tore it all apart rebuilt it with a supercharged coyote motor air bags and interior from a newer mustang as well......that car is a’s my idea for the smart car......what about a smart car limo? Cut it in half add panels sheet metal strengthen up the floor for the longer span......then a bigger motor......not too familiar with what type of motor they have in them......some have suggested a bigger motor from a motor cycle......anything is possible in my book.......I’m like you......While I was in high school I started working at a body shop and have been doing mechanical stuff ever since.......I’ve never went to school for anything ......I just use my own hands on experience to figure out how to accomplish what I need to accomplish.....I started my own channel in February which is something I’ve been trying to get used to......I’ve never done any video work or have had my face on camera for the public to see......But my whole thought was just do I even though it has been a few months I’ve been able to help a few viewers with different problems they have had with the same things I’m working me that’s are more than welcome to check out the channel and my Instagram page by the same name as well.......can’t wait to see more video on the mustang......

It would be better if you put the sheet underneath the frame That would give you more space for the seats and would be better for lower side I bet it's better to use the firewall of one of the cars

I only have one opinion and it is to demonstrate to others about the protection in these projects such as wearing glasses and gloves. protect yourself and others who would like to do something similar. God bless you and let you keep making more similar videos.💪🏽beautifull work.....💪🏽

Hey bud just wanted to say that your videos have been very helpful and inspired me to do some modern improvements on my 1981 Chevy Silverado that I'm restoring. I've already upgraded the interior by changing that ugly dark brown to a modern nuetral tan as well as switched out the old vinyl bench seat for 60/40 split bench seat with console out of a 1996 Silverado. I've also upgraded the front signal lights, side markers and taillights with more modern ones that put out more light. Next week I'm ordering a set of the LED headlights which are made of glass and metal just like the Halogen headlights that the factory recommended. I'm bringing some of the modern technology into my truck but keeping a lot of the stock appearance. I'm doing what GM should have done to this truck years ago

I was intrigued at the beginning of the build, but this is a “by the seat of pants” build. He has wasted so much money on his redos. The car is way to heavy to be. Race car, maybe he can beef it up more as a “Mad Max” car for the upcoming apocalypse. There has been no concept of engineering put in place. I am just watching him talk about cutting down the dashboard. I thought the original reason he widened the car was to accommodate the new dash.

I have loved watching your series. I have liked how you've gone 5 steps diagonal to step sideways 3 steps forward and one step back you really had makes a massive changes mid stream but continued to try and work on this item. Couple of questions. Will this be a track only show car? Or how will you make this street legal of state regulations insurance and all the rest? It's been A-blast watching you I like your direction but I love your tenacity to continue working thank you

I have Truly enjoyed this project.
You have had the 3 steps diagonal 5 steps back.
Yet you've stayed focused.
Will this be a Track Car only?
Or a Street legal car?
Registration regs and state safety inspection issues?
Thank you have a blast

TriumphTraitor - Måned siden
From and Engineers perspective, there is a ton of overkill and some areas where huge improvements can be made. This car is going to weigh a ton, no doubt. But I truly admire the enthusiasm and incredible work ethic of V-tuned - don't see enough of that these days,

Wow dude, last time I came to your channel you were just getting started spinning off from Goonzquad and were getting like a thousand views per video and look how you've blown up! Congrats on all the success and nice job on this build. Some of the criticism below about going lighter is well placed and you can learn from it but don't listen to the hate. Nobody wants to actually do any projects of their own and they want to sit there in their arm chairs nit picking every little thing others do to make themselves feel better. Nobody ever gets started building anything without mistakes, and you're definitely going to learn a lot in the process. This car might end up a little on the heavy side but it will be cool as hell and it will be plenty strong to handle the power. Overall, nice work.

Only suggestions I'd give you,
1. Take all the advice you given then make your own decisions.
2. Sit down and do some real planning on what you want this car to be. Their is no point in keep making mistakes and having to fix them when you wouldent have to if you planned things out better.
3. Take you time and plan ahead.

If can queeze the new garage in there with your dad that will be a GOOD thing. You are lucky to have your dad by your side and unfortunely he won't be there forever. You might not realize that til he'd gone. In your head you can justifly whatever decision you choose, but the reality is that that there is a mutual benefit.....known and unknown. He has always been by your side and you should be by his for as long as the timekeeper allows. Don't take what you have for granted.

I have to tell you you're doing a hell of a job thanking on this build let me give you a few tips from a old body man you need to cut more out of your fire wall or bend the bottom of it back or it's going to bang on the transmission and ex's system other than that you are doing a great job keep up the great work and video's you got the squad beat and they do a good job with your help 🙂

Great job man, love it I had a 68 fastback dark maroon with gold C sripes on the sides wished I had keep it, it was a GT with 12” wide wheels that was behind the finder wells and set low and lower in the front bought it new had 2 1/2 miles on it. Put very few miles on it and was going to keep it and put it up. But I traded it in on a 68 new road runner color was star fire blue worked on it and got 525 horse out of it. And still got it with 55 thousand actual miles it is stripped to the metal now and setting in a garage now for 30 something years and still have all the parts.

Great video as always! I was wondering what this Mustang would weigh at the completion of your build. Also, have you figured out what the total cost of your build might be once it is finished? It is amazing what you have been able to do with this car and every other vehicle you have worked on. Thanks. I am always looking forward to more great videos.

Marti77e - Måned siden
Its start to get little too heavy so maybe litte modding on the frame for weight reduction and allso all the interior parts raises the weight.
And you should strenghten the firewall as the that the stock ones are to get it maximum strenght.

Used the brake system for the master cylinder for power brake from the 2003 Cobra Mustangs it may solve your clearance issues and keep you from cutting the firewall tube.

OK Now you are a CAD specialist too. Cardboard Aided Design. It is looking good! You definitely went about this far different from the other YouTube Mustang builders. They just dumped an old style body on a new Chassis. and Voila! A mustang that looks fifty five years old but drives like a new one. You are building a car from scratch almost!

also there are a ton of aftermarket brake master cylinder options available that are much smaller than the stock booster and will fit under the dashboard, reverse mount style.

An idea for the smart car would be to chop it up like your mustang and simply use it as a modified truck cab with chevy truck fenders and the hole front clip to actually make it look more like a truck then put it on a built chassis with a v6.
