#FairmontProject Final Assembly (Part 1)

From here on in, the #FairmontProject videos will be, for the most part, episodic. Meaning, I’m going to chronicle the build as it happened rather than post videos about installing certain parts.

In this episode I fit the new K member to see if I have hood clearance. Watch till the end to see if I do.

  1. Ive got the same socket set from gp. I have quarter inch with sae and metric in the same case, 3/8ths and a massive half inch set. The extensions with wobbly and solid are awesome. I got mine from my snap on guy at my last shop, where did you get yours from?

  2. Huh. I'll admit it's been years and years since I paid much attention (having sold the Fairmont ages ago) but I didn't know they made coilovers for the Fox.

  3. Eric, enjoy your work / education. Hey, I see in this episode there is a battery box in the back of the Mustang, can I ask what type / brand it is? Specifically because I am doing an LS swap into a 3rd gen camaro, and will move the battery to the right rear, but am concerned about it being in the "open area" of the car, and wondered if there was a special / specific box used for this application. Thanks

  4. Watching 10 minutes of disassembly by hand was so satisfying. lol. I have to do a driveshaft on my Honda Civic, and I find myself wishing that the bolts were all just hand-tight.

    That Fairmont interior is the cleanest Fairmont interior I have EVER seen. I didn't know it was possible for a Fairmont to have a clean interior. LOL.

  5. I'm a big fan of you Eric, out of every video of yours I have seen I have learned quite a bit and enjoyed all of them. This video made me FRUSTRATED so many times. The reason is because this build was so incredibly poorly planned, you went from having a complete car to tearing it all apart and basically swapping out a lot of brand new parts that you'll probably never do anything with again. I hope you're really happy with the build in the end but I learned that it's important to plan things out a lot better, you definitely did an awful job thinking this out. Especially that oil drain plug…you could have easily tapped a new one and closed that one up, I doubt there's crazy baffling inside that one.
