Say hello to project Wallet Drainer. (Page 1/3)

Hey guys, I finally got my hands on a good 88 GT with t-tops. I bought it and drove it home 800 miles with no issues. I have a lot of plans for this car with a planned budget of $20 - $25K. That being said, I'll be needing lots of help and input from you guys. Plans include:

Exterior: Complete paint job: need help deciding on a color. New sail panel windows, fog lights (suggestions), powder coat engine vents and wiper arms, LED tail lights.

Wheels/tires: having trouble finding a 17x7 F, 17x 8 , or 18x8 rear.

Engine/Trans Swap: I really need help here, I can't weld, or do Fab work, so I either need to find someone who does swaps, or find someone to help with the Fab work. Considering 3800 SC with F40.

Interior: Custom leather heated seats, momo Evo steering wheel, G1 Dash, Dakota Digital HDX custom gauge package. Push button start with keyless entry, navigation head unit, carpet, door panels, new seat belt webbing, new shift knob, illuminated power window switches, tint, homelink auto dimming mirror, and HUD if possible. I would also like to add a more modern climate control panel/interface.

I'm sure there is more, but this is a good start.

Great name! When I saw the car for sale I thought that for me it would be a finished car...

Well, it doesn't actually "need" anything, but this is a project car for me, so it's just the starting point as it sits now.

Yea, I would so drive that car as is.
I would enjoy it for a while before diving into mods, but that`s just me.
Have fun.

I hear ya, but I've been waiting for this for a long time. Everything I plan to do is an improvement from where it is now.

Has anyone used the Fiero Store reproduction door panels with the speakers? I'm just wondering if you like them, and if they are good quality.

That is a nice looking car as it sits. Welcome and good luck with the build.
