Hello everyone! I've been lurking here for the past two or so years buying misc. parts here and there, soaking up great advice, etc. but I thought it was about time for my own thread.
Last year I bought F355Spyder's silver choptop with the intention of using it as a summer car up here in the mountains of western Maine. Unfortunately things did not work out quite so well. After a bit of a mishap involving the transportation of the car and some (substantial) damage to the car, I finally have gotten a chance to enjoy the car. To make a long story short the car was repaired and re-painted entirely on the insurance company's dollar. It runs and drives beautifully now with no permanent damage.
The car has a 3.4 with a turbo and it sure is quick! Its not as fast as my Camaro but it definitely pulls a lot
faster than my N/A 3.4. Driving through town and seeing everyone's eyes follow the car, then see them turn around after I pass, just brings a huge smile to my face. I'm sure you all can relate.
I have been hoarding quite a few upgrade parts for the car. My plans for this summer, in no particular order, include:
1. Trueleo Intake
2. Projector Headlights
3. Interior cleaning / restoration
4. PISA Taillights
5. Double Din Radio with rear backup camera.
6. LED Side marker lights
7. Select cable replacement + Shifter rebuild
8. Swap over a few parts from my yellow 87 GT (which will be for sale soon)
9. Cut down and install quarter windows
I'll try and take pics and share my projects as I work on them. Currently I am working on replacing the select cable. The new one from Rodney arrived today along with the shifter rebuild kit and new speaker grill cloths. As I'm working on replacing the select cable I'll be freshening up the interior and installing the double din radio and backup camera since half the interior is out anyway.
I'll be doing all of the work in our boat garage a few miles down the road and unfortunately I left my camera at home today so I only have pics of the car put together. But here she is in the garage along with my yellow GT.
