Assembling Parts – Close to Assembling a Racecar
These are some important pieces to the puzzle so that we get the 1990 Ford Mustang 5.0 American Iron chassis back on the track.
The Sparco seat was a local purchase off of Facebook Marketplace. Bonus is that it is legal without a back brace until 2023. Woot!
Next we have the seat brackets. I had some Summit bucks to burn so I bought them new. I’m impressed by the quality. They are the Sparco brand and made out of aluminum. Every ounce counts!
Next up are the heads. We took them to the machine shop to have them surfaced, spring pressures checked, seats inspected and new seals put in.
The final piece to this post is the most important. The membership that allows me to get licensed to compete on the track. The Covid 19 situation delayed the shipment of this as I bought this back when we went to Road Atlanta a few months back.
Previous carried over balance – $660
Seat – $430
Seat Brackets – 132.95
Heads – purchased used – $400
Head Machining – 234.87
That brings us to a total of $1857.82
