    Hello Allan, Can you send a pic of what your fabricated boot looks like?

    Hi, Alan. Do you have a build page? I was looking at your exact approach to a roadster build (2003-4 Mach 1 donor). Was the teardown straightforward? Were you able to use the Mach 1's rear end with the 3-link option? Discounting paint, what did your costs run for the build? (I may do my own paint.)

    No, I never took the time to put together a photo based build thread. However, I can recommend that you look at the photobucket that MarkT put together. He provides a link to his photobucket in his signature line. I was about 6 months to a year behind on my build vs Mark's. He too used a low mileage Mach 1 for his donor, so I followed in his foot steps. The quality of Mark's build is extraordinary! I did put together a summary of my build details for a car show, I will attach that here for your review. Take a look at what I did and feel free to ask any questions you might have. (Oops, details too long to include in the response, I will post on the thread for you.
