Good luck with getting that through engineering & rego. The transmission of forces during an accident to your body would be incredible (if not life threatening). Not a crumple zone in sight on those rails, the stock Mustang rails bend in an accident, the ones depicted will come through the car like a spear.

However, that is just my opinion.

They don't need any of that shit really, just fix what you have. I don't know DOT engineers in the Isa but i know a couple in Brisbane one is a Mustang expert, been converting them to RHD since the 80's the other does all the compliancing for Corvette QLD at Gympie, including all the Silverado's etc, Cobras etc etc, doing a early Hilux for a mate now that is running a Blowen Lexus V8, among other things, niether would look at it. Fix the rust, and keep away from the shiney stuff is my advice, and forget the Deawoo racks.

this will cost me less then half the price of fixing what I have plus having to weld it all together with measuring it all exactly where this is completely welded already that's all and with brake up grade steering upgrade bigger ball joints but they not replying to my emails any way so looks like im going stock I also think this looks better but any way

No way would that cost you less than half the price.

One, you have to fit it (good luck with that) & two, you need to find (& pay) an engineer to pass it.

If your car is all that bad on the underside, get a coupe bottom half & graft the top & whatever else needed on to it. Not hard & cost effective.

I would say they are not replying to your emails because they already know that their setup would be illegal here. I would bet in their fine print it would say "for off road usage only".

Stupid question, but being made of aluminum wouldn't there be a lot of twisting and movement, especially with a decent motor putting out a good amount of power? I don't see how that setup is any better than the original anyhow it looks blingy but at the end of the day you don't even see any of that?

The round tube brace is "supposed" to stop the twist, but where it bolts to the firewall is not strong enough, just one thickness of 20guage mild steel. In a race car it would be tied to the roll cage, however the bend in the tube would negate that.

standard gear won't require engineer's approval. Will the mustang be registered? if so, have you spoken to your local engineer who will sign off on this? If he won't, it will be an expensive kit to replace.

Rack and pinion kit for $2100 is not standard gear. What brake kit? why the need for drop spindles. Sounds like your standard prices are not for a standard setup?

OK, then a used front clip. Very inexpensive. I source mine from CA wrecking yards, easy to get. Would be similar cost to ship.

Also be careful with the shipping price, because its over 1k au you would be up for gst, import duty, custom and broker fees and could easily add up to another $1500 on top of the $700 shipping

just curious if this non standard "front clip" would have exactly the same effect as the dynacorn bodies? its half a new car, the half that tells you how old a car is, etc...

there is no vin on this setup, and it is a major modification to the chassis, so would this need latest ADR compliance, etc for being a 2013 car?

i have a very bad feeling about this one... reminds me of all the talk on the pro comp heads, except this one will potentially cost a mint, and have the potential to reduce resale value dramatically if the plan fails...
