A fair amount of Fairmont progress :)

I am pleased to say I have accumulated all the parts needed for my 5 lug conversion! First I finally found the 94-95 mustang spindles complete with rotors, calipers, and brake hoses locally for $175.00. Then I found a scrapping yard that sold me a 1988 Ford Ranger Drivers side Axle Shaft (which of course is the secret to swapping directly into an 8.8), along with good drums which I had turned. A week later the same scrapping yard had and Aerostar van, which has the proper axle on its *passenger* side. Picked up 4 wheels and tires from the van while I was at it so the F-Bomb project can sit on the ground until I pick up the wheels I want. Here is a picture of the wheels I want:
