Help needed on a FUN project!

Spyder8738:
Hello, I am a 22 year old Army Paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne, currently stationed in Italy. I have been working on a project 68 Mustang ever since I was 16, when I bought the car with my own money. Due to the fact that I live in Italy and my good but not amazing automotive knowledge it has remained a project for the past 3 years that Ive been in the military. Its probably 10 man-hours time from being a driver (which I intend it to be) but I simply dont have the know-how to get those last few things finished!

What Im desperately searching for is someone who is willing to work with me to get the darn thing on the road this winter! Ill be coming home from December 17th to January 4th. I need more of a mentor than a worker someone whos strong in electrical and engine tuning, my weaknesses. :P Im definitely capable of doing the work if I know what Im doing. Willing to pay for help, but I certainly dont have $50-$70 an hour for a helper. If theres someone out there whos passionate about classic cars and / or the military and whos willing to spend some time with me getting this beast on the road, I would be SO unbelievably grateful. Here are some details about the car:

1968 Mustang Coupe, originally 6cyl
Now has 429 CJ
SCJ Heads
Boss Crank
Suspension tweaked
Torque Thrust D Wheels, Yokohama tires
Body work done, some Shelby cues (side scoops, hood, lights, etc)
Freshly painted
9 Moser rear end
31 spline axles
3.50 Traction-loc
All-wheel disc brakes
Full 2 1/2 exhaust, h-pipe, Flowmaster 40s
Custom long-tube headers

Thank you for taking the time to read this. If youre interested, e-mail is the best way to contact me: kalamazoo1080@hotmail.com. Im in Beaverton, OR. Thanks again!

Sincerely,
Dan Cruz

Yeah, between Jim, ,me and Steve, we can help you get her together.  The problem is that neither of us can come to your shop to physically guide you.  You also have to remember that there are mechanics in the shop on base that can help you. Their advice is free.
