Welcome to the site, and good luck with the tribute to your late father (my condolences).

When you can, please post up photos of the car. There's not too many 84 TxDPS cars floating around these days.

Default Update on the car

Got the car stripped and primerd. Front sway bar brackets were replaced. Finally got a marti report for the car.

After months of waiting for the John to reply he finally did couple days ago.

Just an FYI. If referring to slow reply from Marti Auto Works, they have had a couple of recent extended business outages due to COVID-19 affecting employees / workplace. I learned this from posts they issued on Facebook, so not sharing any private information. BTW best wishes on your project, Iíll be watching your progress posts with interest.

I agree with that as well. I am really looking forward to seeing your 1984 TXDPS Mustang restored to its former self.
