I was wanttin to do something differnt. Everyone is cuttin the tc's up for mustang porjects and I want to cut a mustang up for a tc project.

I was goin to keep the tc emblems on it but was goin to use a mustang body kit and it comes wit the front header, side, and rear bumper.

This is why I was askin about it.

One more thing is there a body kit for the tc?

At one time, I had thought about using a stang body kit (86'-93') and modifying it to fit but went another direction instead.
86' Blue Turbo Coupe (resto-mod in progress)
86' Black Turbo Coupe (will remain mostly stock.........maybe)

I got to lookin at a body kit for an 95 and I looks like I mite have a better fit but I can't see paying 500 for a used body kit and cutting it up at this point and time

Unless some one and tell me how they have done it and show pics of each step they toke in doing so

years back I had bought an extra aftermarket front air dam to replace the same type I had on the car, but I just fixed it instead and never used it. It has one side wing missing but a good fiberglass guy could make a reverse mold and duplicate it, or make two new side wings for it.
The picture is before I fixed the front lower section with a peice of angle iron behind it and it was fine for years.

But what about use a mustang front clip on the tc?

I think the closes one would be the 94-96 front clip.
What do you all think?
