Well, after owning my 88 gt for 4 years, I finally decided it was time to stop letting it sit and work on it. The previous owner was in an accident in 1998 and the car had not been run since. Since I've had it, I've done the following:
Repaired front end from the damage (involved cutting off the front two feet of the frame of a parts car and doing the same with my car, then welding it all back together on my car) Replaced master and slave cylinders as well as the clutch line Cleaned gas tank and put in a new sending unit and fuel pump assembly from the fiero store New Egr tube, valve, housing oil change (of course) had injectors flow tested (all of them were 100% clogged) so they were cleaned and flow matched New intake gaskets from having injectors out couple of new vac. lines new fuel filter got some used tires on it so i can move it around had to replace the ignition switch due to not having a key new radiator tube and thermostat Replaced the A/C blower
There are probably a few more things, but that's just a basic list as they just came to my head....
So last weekend I fired it up for the first time and it ran good!!! I even drove it around my yard some. I did notice that it's idling at about 1400 rpm, but I still have the IAT sensor disconnected, and possibly a vac leak somewhere, plus the intake tube and filter housing was still off....
This is my list of things left to do: Brakes (they look good as far as the pads and rotors, and they currently work good, so I'm going to change the fluid and bleed it first and see how they are after that because the fluid looks nasty) reconnect head lights (I have to solder a new plug on the wiring harness, but I picked one up from Pull a part last week and plan on doing that tomorrow) I'm debating painting it while I still have all the front end body panels off, or just putting them back on and driving it like it is for a while (it needs paint bad) New headliner and deep cleaning of interior replace windshield washer arm (already have new one, also planning on doing it tomorrow) new front windshield new dew wipes/window weatherstripping? on both windows eventually repair A/C (the belt is off of the compressor, so I assume it doesn't work, also, the lines were disconnected when I repaired the accident damage) I kept the original plugs and wires just to see if it would run, so I may replace them too, but my car only has 65K miles on it, so we'll see I also need to get a matching set of door locks and trunk lock with the keys (I had to drill out the trunk to get it open, and I never had keys to the doors) I'll eventually need to find someone who has a GT front bumper with round molding that wants to trade with me. My bumper has the ribbed molding, so it doesn't match the rest of the car (it came off the parts car. my original bumper was not with it when I bought it) Probably suspension bushings as well
This is not a comprehensive list, but it's a general idea. I'm not about to take the car on any long trips, so I'm sure I'll find little things come up that need to be fixed, like relays that are bad, etc, but it's more like a project log for myself.
Over all the car is in pretty good shape. The power windows, mirror, and trunk all work, I haven't tried the power locks yet... The interior is in really good shape, aside from just needing to be cleaned, but my long term goal would be to get Amida's interior kit for it. Really, that's about it. I'll keep updating this thread as I get more done to the car, but mostly so I can have a record of everything I've done. I'll try and get some pictures of the car maybe tomorrow, oh, and if anyone has any of the things I need from the to do list, I may be interested in purchasing some things, so PM me please.
