    if you start doing body work/painting, let me know. im gonna paint the notch this winter possibly. the interior is mint now, so i want to freshen the white up a bit on the outside.

    i'm gonna have access to a 6-way beadblaster soon that we just got (so sick) so i might utilize that and all my other luxuries and make it pretty too.

    Well alittle trouble with the fan controller and found out it's fried :mad: so i'll get a new one hopefully tomorrow.I did get to take it for a test spin around the block.Brakes are spongy i'm assuming do to the rear disc conversion and no proportioning valve? Other then that everything seemed good!It's driveable till it gets hot (cause the fans dont kick on) so till i get the controller i can wash it, reinstall the interior that i took out to run wires,and also do some little touch up under the hood.This has been a very fun project and once the funds are back phase 2 will start! Now i'm looking to see if my buddy with a 90 GT is ready? :D

    Thanks! i might try my skills at it? this guy at my girl friends work does body work for a living on the side,he charges $35 an hour so i might have him fix the cowl and roof and then have him respray the whole car,depends what it will run me?But then i might try my hand/eye at it also :shrug:? I think for now i will just wire the fans to the switch and roll with that for now,i called every where and no one has any controllers left :bang:if and since i might go this route i will just order the DCC or whatever that controller is everyone rathers to use instaed of the type of controller i have. peace

    well my gauges work but i was sitting on a slope that leaned to the driverside,and since i was low on gas it all ran to that side of the tank.The pick up is on the passengerside of the tank.I had a guy help me push it so the ass end was slopped down and it started!peace

    i don't suppose you would have any pics of that do you?? did you fabricate a box of sorts to mount everything in? otherwise it would be exposed to road debris??
