Looks like you got a Pioneer Supertuner in the deal. Those were good units back in the day.

Wow you got a lot of work to do. :shock: It might be easier to do some “customizing” rather then try for all stock.

Bolted the rear bumper in place tonight to get it off the floor, the bumper is in pretty rough shape but i know where there is a decent one that im going to grab, the frt bumper i got is in decent shape altho i will have to fab up some brackets as someone had cut the originals off the parts car with a torch, and instead of cutting the bolts off, they cut the brackets in half

are you customizing it or keeping it original? what options does it have? are you adding any, im not sure what was optional back then, but theres probably some cool stuff

well lots of progress has been made this past weekend... so here are some pics and details
Got the engine painted and running, now just need to permently wire in the diraspark box.
she sounds mean with just the open manifolds :grin:
Image
did a little bit of the frame work
Image
Image
fixed the rotted frt floor bord. it was more rotted then expected so i cut the drivers frt floor right out and made a new peice. as you can see the smaller sub frame is rotted but i have some channeling that will be perfect to rebuild a new one.
The new floor board i made i also drilled holes and spotwelded to the main subframe like original. After i rebuild the smaller section of the fram i will be spotweling it back on to...
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
oh and i accidently baught brown paint instead of black. my bad
So next is on to the rest of the frame work, and after all the metal work is done it will be all mechanical work from there :grin:
