Finished radiator support for the new radiator. Finished the new over flow lines for the 88 fuel tank. Filled the cooling system (no leaks yet in the re-welded tubes). Reattached the brake lines under the chassis. And started it and let it run until it warmed up where the idle dropped to a nice smooth 750ish RPM. Also started messing with the new body panels and made room for the rear quarters to come home.

Oh, today I pulled the V8 out of storage and put about 60 miles on her and 4000 miles of tread off the back tires.... I also been working on a new bezel for my push button shifter. You may or may not know my 86 GT " Snapperhead" has no shifter. I designed a electronic push button shifter assy for it. Now I'm just making it look pretty.



It's starting to take shape now. I machined it out of a block of T6 Aluminium and now making the final fit and finish. It will hold my custom P. R, N, D backlit push buttons and the 5th is for push button start. It will replace the trunk/def bezel..

Anyway it's coming along..

Removed plenum for a paint and cleaning, changed 4 of 6 spark plugs before I ran out of time. Tonight, planning on crimping my new spark plug wires and putting the boots on.

One another note, my Motegi Racing SP10 Hyper Black rims came in the mail, as did my new MSD coil. Placed an order for a MOMO Steering Wheel and shifter and NRG Short Hub adapter.

Lots to do and so little time...

Just removed the original passenger-side fender for a little cleanup and to fill the antenna hole. Replacement fender should go in soon Mild profanities, mostly due to the Orioles/Detroit game.

Friday, replaced the filler neck to tank hose. Gas was seeping through the hose. (Put the fire extinguisher in the front seat.)
Saturday washed and cleaned it up. Took the last of the 5 (girls) out to start practicing driving for her license.

Rock on! That part is easy. I just need to figure out how to remove the plastic piece on the steering column so I can get to the wire. It looks like it clips in somehow.

It's possible you may have to pull off the wheel for that one. My car has no cruise control so I didn't have to deal with that one. Here's a good tutorial on the steering column that may be helpful.

The youtube video shows how to fish the wire through. You just remove the bottom trim piece.

Yesterday I installed the OEM original GT Quarter windows from Stars&Stripes' modified 86GT onto my 86GT.

Jacked the back of the car up, set the control arms on jackstands, and did some redneck wheel refinishing...

Put the car in second gear, started it up, and locked up one wheel on one side.
Then I wet sanded the three inch lip on the spinning wheel, starting at 400 grit and working my way up to 1500. I need to jack it back up and continue the job up to 2000 or 2500 before polishing it with a mother's ball.

I wish someone.."Hint Hint"...would make replacement door handles to match the smooth molding.The squared off handles just look out of place with the smooth molding but looks well with the ribbed molding.

Got the passenger side ground effects and quarter panel off. Trying to have as much done now so dropping the gas tank is as easy as it can be. The gas tank will be later this spring. Hopefully!

Finally sold the 2.5L Iron Duke engine out of my 88. Helps clear out some room in the garage. 4.9L swap continues... I also took apart the wiring harness from the 2.5. Now that both harnesses are prepped, wiring shouldn't be too bad.

Started by replacing the battery the old one was covered by warranty by Excide only $17.
Then I put on the new license sticker, and backed it out of the tent so I could sweep it out.
finished by leaving it out so I could see it and remember what it looks like.

Gotta remove the driver's seat to get the nasty carpet outta there. Had to jack up the seat with the scissor jack but couldn't get the nut to turn. Both rear nuts are soaking in PB blaster for a day or three... have to take a cutting wheel to the nut. Hopefully that'll work!

First of all, don't laugh. Yes, that's electrical tape holding the coolant overflow tank off the radiator. I needed to do something in a pinch because it broke about 3/4 the way through my trip from NY to NC. I'll replace it likely with a surge tank in the back when I do my engine swap.


Took off the hood, front bumper, removed the headlights, and began cleaning out all the crap that had built up after sitting for so long. There's also a shiny spot on the passenger's side. It was superficial rust, but starting to grow deeper. So I removed it as best I could ASAP.


Grinding wheel+sandpaper+smaller grinding wheel+more sandpaper+smaller grinding wheel still+sandpaper.

Have a coat of metal-sealing primer on it now, currently drying. Going to do one more coat of that then give it a shot of flat black once that dries, as per recommendation from a friend who owns a body shop back on Long Island. I hope I'm doing it right, because I've never done paint on metal before.

Edit to add:

And done. Going to get some clearcoat on it tomorrow to seal it in, again as per recommendation. Now it looks newer than the rest of the car. >.<;

Set it back down on the ground and put the new lug nuts on. The old ones were all different.

I like your tail lights. Where did you get them?
