Restomod Futura
Project Restomod Futura
Alot has been going on as I try to finish the little details with the Restomod Futura.  There are couple major things holding me back from driving the car like a driveshaft, but for the most part it's just been little details that just need to get done.  My schedule has been to work on the car two times a week and I've been able to stick with that pretty well, so I've been making steady progress.  Here's an update:

  1. Transmission Range Sensor - The stock 2003 DTR wouldn't work with the AEM so I had to convert to a '95 Mustang Transmission Range Sensor.  No big deal, just took a couple days to figure out what to do and a couple trips to my local Ford Dealer.  I've gotta say thanks to the guys at Boshear's Ford in Marshall, MI for helping me out with the technical details.  For anyone trying to use an AEM box on a 4R70W made after '96, you may need to do this swap as well.

  2. Transmission Pan - My friend and colleague Jim Sheren did a nice job welding a drain tube onto the bottom of my transmission pan.  This was mandatory since the salvage yard had already put a hole in the bottom of the pan to drain the fluid.  I also took the opportunity to powdercoat the pan and I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out.  I think I'm getting the hang of the process.
