We like David's crisp, simple approach to the office-Mustang standard interior basics with Scat Procar bucket seats, restraint harnesses, a rollcage for safety, Auto Meter instrumentation, and more.

David's wiring is completely hidden in the engine compartment; something you cannot do easily with a factory electrical system. The fuse box and circuit breakers are easy to do-just pop open the glovebox.

Radir 15x7-inch wheels and BFGoodrich radial T/As make the ride. We like the retro chiseled spokes that remind us of Fenton mags from long ago.
