The weather has been very cold here and we had 8 inches of snow in some parts of the region ,,,, Didn't get to the garage to do some work on my decklid ... oh well ... did receive some goodies though and I'm still waiting on the speedometer to come in so I can complete the gauge pod .... the rear LED tail light design is coming along fine I painted the Pontiac logo onto the panel so I can cut it out with a dremel tool. I still have ALOT of work to do ... a new problem has shown up last week holy krap!! gas isn't getting to the carburator ... might be electrical ...will see later... The Arduino programming is very tough looks alot like or close to C language ... I want my tails to flash sequentially (6 segments per side) so alot of programming still ahead. Once complete I'll post a video. I did use Synthesis's link to the Lightduino .... nice machine but over elaborate for a 6 segment control I want .. I will be using 2 Tiny Arduinos on the car... my benchwork is done with a Mega 2560 .... here are todays pics.......


One more dial to go ...


Tail light panel painted in Dodger Font ... ready to do some precise cutting

This last photo needs to be at least "R" rated. It is painfully obvious you were pant-less when you took the picture.....standing there naked, with just your keys hanging out!

Great! Now I will have a photo of Danyel naked, working on the taillight panel in my head for the rest of day. Just make sure that he cleans off the mushroom prints before he goes to clear!

Danyel,
That is looking pretty cool man. Nice work on the car. I know you have been working on it for some time. I am not sure where you are going with the lettering on the taillight panel but I am sure it will look nice when you finish it. Peace

Pete

Hello Pete
Thanks for the compliment and following my thread .... the panel is painted so I can cut out the letters ... its easier to see where to cut with all the dust flying around. Once cutted out I will make a form around the letters to pour red Alumilte Water Clear plastic ...thus forming a air tight berrier ... more to come on that....

Spent the weekend soldering and doing Arduino test and working on the gauge panel ... now I'm waiting on the 18 and 12 pin connectors to come in but did get alot done.




The first thing was to cut the light chanels in two and paint them.


I glued (GOOP) the shortened chanels to the panel with the indicator filters in between them.


Got myself some solder board and solder 10 LEDs to them with a 470ohms 1 watt resistor


Here they are lit up ... much brighter than the pic shows


Here are the gauges and logo lit up


Just the pontiac logo


Widow anxiously waiting to get out !!!!

... still waiting on some paper work and also the UK clips for my K Munson signal covers ... will give follow up soon. I am also restarting production of my LED marker kits (fiero store came through soon available...

more this week..

You have the raised spoiler right? With the extractor scoop, how is rearview mirror visibility for you Danyel? Do you think you'll lose much more with the extra height on the scoop?

I did a trial before doing this ... I sold my 8 inch rear spoiler and raised the scoop 1.5 inches... I do have a better line of sight through the rear view mirror but the scoop really does not help see on the passenger side the blind spot ... I soon will be upgrading the Widow with rear view cameras on each side and removing the mirrors ... as soon as I get my answer from my brother who is in the Quebec Provincial Police... more to come...

Danyel, Is that raised scoop going to clear the rear of the car when the deck is opened? I can't remember how close mine is at normal height on mine.

Yes it will clear the rear window... my scoop follows the decklid's leading edge ... I measured it while opened before I decided to glassed it in ...

LOL I figured you had checked. Looks good. Don't think I have seen anyone else raise theirs before. Nice to be breaking new ground!

Wow!!

That is an impressive build!

I too will be venturing down this similar path soon. I got a 1985 notchy that I'll be updating and cleaning up.

Your thread has really inspired me to do more than just bring it back to driving condition!


I'm a programmer by trade, and will definitely be replacing and rewiring the whole car to be controlled with an Arduino Mega like you did haha. Maybe add a touchscreen and a ITX computer for processing and other fun stuff. I already bought a couple thousand RGB LEDs that will make up the LED array for the rear signals and stuff.

Thanks for the inspiration and the great write up!

Thanks for the compliments ....

Work is still going on the Widow has seen sunshine for the first time in 7 months!!! Time to get her up on my REDNECK platform and remove the tank and change the fuel pump ... I'm still waiting on my new Holley pump ..grrrr its at the canadian duties .... getting the tank all nice and clean... I was surprised to see NO RUST in the empty tank hole wow !!! I'm gonna clean the tank up and paint ... also took some quick pics ....


... my redneck H platform is all welded together including the rims and can support a 68 cadillac and more !!! If ya think it is dangerous well you probably have no engineering basics !!!


A picture is worth 1000 words ... EVERYTHING IS WELDED TOGETHER AND THERE IS A METAL POLE 4 FT INTO THE GROUND WELDED TO THE INSIDE OF THE STEELIES. I maybe a redneck but not a STUPID ONE


rear view .....


I'm really happy spending my mucho bucks on new wheels !!! I wanted to go 9.5 or 10 rears but SPYN dont make em that wide

While you have everything out, I don't know how accurate is your fuel level indicator, but don't take a chance and clean everything.

They don't have a directional arrow? Figured they did due to the fact the tread is cutting away from the center like a V.

The tire shop that installed my new wheels put the rears on backwards ... thanks for spotting that Fiero_Fan_88 !!!. I jacked the car up and switched them to their proper side ... I wonder what would of been the effects of them backwards ??? No optimal traction ? Wear ? humm. oh by the way they do have a directional arrow

Looking good my friend. Before long you'll have parts that are shiny that were never intended to be shiny.

Thanks Art !! ... Got the gas pump in and the tank on and filled up ... The Widow comes ALIVE !!!! I thinks I took on too many projets so now I'm pressed for time.... the car runs fine now and accelerates better than before... OK on my to do list ... I'm waiting on the my velocity stacks, and I got to finish the gauge cluster ..... I decided to take out my OLD tail lights and give them a update because the LED version will take too long and fiero season is very short ... so I found my old tail lights taped up the pontiac and lense area and did some light sanding so I can paint the with a waterbase paint and then I'm gonna clear the whole lense .. here are tonights pics


Taped the lenses


Light sanding


Both lenses are ready for cleanup and paint ... more tomorrow

Well last night spent the evening prepping and painting the tail light panels ... I removed the tape before the paint becomes too dry and brittle, for sharper lines....they came out pretty good. Tonight I'm gonna lay 5 to 6 coats of clear and post pics here.....I also went on Ebay to buy SWITCHBACK front turn signal LEDs which serve as turn signals and DRLs (daytime running lights) for 30$ cdn shipped. When on they are white and in turn signal mode are yellow.. looks pretty sharp ... As for the rear decklid I decide to go another way ... I'll post later on that ... here are last nights pics...



All painted up ready to remove the masks


Masks are removed ... will let them sit to dry properly


Cleared and they look better than before... yeah no more delamination


Bought some 1157 LED red bulbs for the rear ....


Some front fascia cleaning up to do (sorry about that)..... new aluminium rad installed


Gauge face plates for sale ... reasonable offer accepted ... no cracks brushed aluminium and one dark faceplate no cracks


4 x 15in rims for sale.... reasonable offer accepted good condition will need buffing

The tail lights are now completed and installed ... here are 2 pics ...



Pontiac lit up


After trying to extend the scoop by 1 inch the fiberglass did NOT cure properly so I had to remove everything.
I will try to extend the base but I must make a structure to support the scoop and the new fiberglass. I laid the scoop on insolation foam and I will sand off what I dont need (in the shape of the scoop) then glass it all up.


Here is the decklid as it stands right now .. I'm still debating extending the scoop or fabricating an air intake with 8 velocity stacks (Hilborne intake look) I've bought 8 stacks and will do a test ... I will post pics soon on this ... but I really dont know what finish look I want .... more soon
