Bought myself a 1993 Ford Mustang (2.3L I4, the 5.0L V8 was sold with it but the car was an I4 from the factory, so it lacks the stronger brakes, suspension, etc. -- The engine would be a drop-in/bolt-up to the current T5, but it would be far from safe.)
The car has basically no interior. (The stock top half of the dash is present, where the gauge cluster, light controls, etc. are housed. That's about it.)
I'm looking to MacGyver the interior while I work on the mechanical pieces that need attention. My intent was to source and cut-out some carpet, and glue it down with some [weaker] adhesive so it won't be too permanent when I revisit the interior next year.
One problem with this plan is: the engine management computer is in the passenger cab, in the very front right corner of the car. (If you were riding in the passenger seat, it is located where your right foot would be.)
The wiring harness and computer is completely exposed, and the grounding strap doesn't really ground to anything.
Given that I live in Wisconsin, and people tend to have snow and mud on their boots, this is not going to work in the long term.
I'm not sure where it was originally mounted, or if there's a missing piece of trim that was meant to cover it, but I need a solution to keep it safe from stray boots.
Is anyone familiar with the '89-93 Mustang that could share some insight? The OEM mounting hardware might be non-existent on this car, so creative answers for protecting the ECU would be welcomed.
