Building "Disturbed" has been a great bonding Exercise for me & my son,working in the rain the wind & the oil plus the mistakes but when we get behind the wheel all that is forgotten
I wouldnt change a thing

Thanks dahayes
this is the first time we have done anything like this we have taken our time to get it right & to get the best advice & parts out there for the dollars we could scrap together.
& for that we would like to thank all the guy's/gals on fordmods & Clarkracing "Maurice & Tim" in Launceston in Tassie & mates Anthony & john in Burnie Tassie & off course daughter inlaw Sally who didnt mind getting her hands dirty.
But we not finished yet next Stealth intake-Holley street avenger 670 carb & holley fuel pump
then a respray coz some scratches during the build.

Actually I've had people say why, well heres my answer, I believe everyone should at least live one dream in their life time, I wanted my son to live he's while Im alive to see it

Gee, a lot of TLC and work went into this build. I wish I could do the same with one of my 3 boys but, I don't see them anymore. :(

I do hope that your Son has had as much fun building this as you have. Awe inspiring job you both have done, kudos to you both. :)

Hi ashcook
My son brought the ute believing it was stroked, but it wasnt it was standard with a lot off cheap nasty s**t Internally & you only find that out by pulling it down, that p****d the son off to the max, I said ok lets do something about it lets do it the way it deserves to be done so we stripped it & sent parts all over Australia & imported parts, some of the Companies we delt with were frustrating to no end,there was periods of time when we couldnt do anything + there was times when we ran out off coin to continue,we was only going to spend a few "k" on ute but x by 5 or so.
12 months later here it is & if you stick to your plans you will one day be turning the key on your 351, no matter what it all takes time to get it right the first time & that in it self is a money saver.
what stage are you at with your ute? dig in keep going its worth it

Hi TickXR
My son tells me he has 5 "Disturbed" albums & thats where he got name from, there's no room on rear window coz thats where he has Disturbed,plus in this day & age using someone elses logo is asking to be sued for copy right.


cheers
