Keep on a truckin.

I am taking advantage of the heat wave here in Ohio. 60* + today made it really easy to get the shop and parts up to temp. Sorry my phone camera is not the best and my work light died in the middle of spraying so I'm not 100* sure how the door jam came out... Hopefully my muscle memory was good. I laid on 3 good coats so I have enough to cut and buff if necessary. I also gathered some other parts that were ready. I had to respray the fender vent due to a dry spot. Man are these things hard to spray and get good coverage and finish. I also got the door hinges and the new rear flair.

Looks great.
We have had -4 in Fahreheits here all week so it's not as easy here to start painting now.

Really happy with the finish I am getting from these new paint guns.



Oh, wife let me keep some parts in the house to dry as it is really cold here again. Even a fender..

Laid out my hood bird. It has been in the tube since 2001. I checked and the adhesive seems really sticky. I'll try it. Not going to waste a few hundred on a new one yet. Anyone know who makes/made the decals for Classic Industries? Just curious.

Ordered $1,000 in parts. Some from Classic Industries. Not my normal go to parts place... They had 20% off and free shipping through yesterday. They have 25% off going now but no free shipping. I did the math and I think I came out ok. I ordered hushmat from an eBay store and bought more paint. PPG DCC concept. Wife was ok with it but not too happy. I should be good for a while though.

So now that I think I have the brakes figured out I decided to paint the booster as it was raw steel. I went with satin black engine paint as I am trying to "modernize" the engine bay.



I also figured, I have touched almost everything on this car and the metal dash looked pretty ugly. So I started sanding...

I still need to finish the other side and then I will prime it and spray SEM satin black. Any thoughts on cleaning the dash pad. It is nice with no cracks so I need to be careful.





Since this is the first time in a long while I have had the plastic pulled back I grabbed a picture. Ya, ya, I know it looks like crud but this is progress and it keeps me motivated.

On a side note. I was fiddling around with the blower wiring and I noticed I had left the battery hooked up... No idea how long that has been like that... A year??? So I bumped the key to see how dead it was and in half a revolution it started! Actually scared me a bit as it doesn't have mufflers yet and I wasn't expecting that. Fuel injection is a wonderful thing.




Stay tuned... I'm on a mission!

Looks great. I'm not sure if some cutting wax or metal polisher would work for cleaning the dash pad.

I'm thinking a pH cleaner that I have for leather and a toothbrush might be a good option.

I used a product called f21 that worked well to soften my dash pad when I first got it for my Trans Am. I saturated it every few days for about a week and it just kept soaking it up.

Epoxied and painted some small parts I need to finish the brakes lines. Used some touch up cups a friend of mine gave me. Was kinda nice to just throw it away instead of cleaning it.





I also tried cleaning a spot on the dash. Man, what a bunch of grime. I was a teenage smoker when I drove this car years ago. Left a bunch of gum and tarish gunk on the dash. I quit smoking 18 years ago just so you know....

Anyway, I had this PH safe cleaner for leather... I don't know if it is vinyl safe but it seemed to work well at cleaning and softening the dash. Don't take my word for it, it is just what I had, we'll see if the dash is all eaten away in 6 months...







**Edit** There's my VIN if anyone wants it...  :D

I think you may be the only one interested but it doesn't matter. Just keeping the thread alive is motivation to keep moving. I liked your post on the white board. I am going to get a list going as I am getting really close to a finished car. The list will not need to read "restore entire car".

I received some more parts to get the brakes working. The 81 master cylinder came from Rockauto. They were the only ones I could find that had new, not remanufactured units with the correct reservoir. Others are AutoZone specials..

I used the same stuff on my TATA dash when I was going through the restoration. It looked like new from then on. When it would get dusty, I'd just clean it with Adam's total interior cleaner.

Santa brown showed up at 8pm last night with my parts order. Most parts seem to be decent. The sill plates look great and door seals seem soft and a nice repo part. Not pictured are the door sill plates, carpet and hush mat sound deadener. One thing that I was a bit disappointed in was the OER carpet. It has been a long time since I have seen the carpet that was in my car but this seems really thin with only a small square of just backing in a few spots. It was all jammed into the box so I have laid it out and I might take a heat gun to smooth out some wrinkles. Has anyone else installed carpet of the OER brand? Any tips or anything?

Cant remember what brand carpet I used, but it too seemed thin and was very wrinkled. I laid it out inside the car for a week or so before I installed it. I just kinda smoothed things out the best I could. It turned out very nice with no wrinkles or buckles at all. It should relax and flatten out for you.

I figured it will. That is why I laid it out now. As you can see my car is still a ways off from needing carpet. What did/do you have under the carpet? Should I order some sort of jute sound deadener to go on top of the Hush Mat (similar to Dynamat).

I used the factory correct sound deadner. It looks like 1/4" thick tar paper. I would NOT recommend it. I put thick ( i think it was at least 3/4") dynamat on the back wheel wells, and the trunk divider panel under the back seat. I don't know how much diff dynamat on the whole car would be, as it is it is LOUD inside.  Now that you mention it I think the carpet had a jute backing pre-installed. I used ACC from Ames.

Ya, there is "some" jute padding in different locations on this carpet. I may look into another material to put over the Hushmat before I install the carpet.

Been working on the brakes.. I have to mate the metric rear brakes from the LS car to the standard "T" on the 79 rear end. Here is how I did that...









Metric on one end, standard on the other. I bought the metric line and cut off the one end and put a standard flair on.
I put that loop in there to make installation easier..

With the exhaust, rear sway bar, fuel and brake lines, it's getting tight back here....

Those brake lines look great, I love working with NiCopp. Did you use the bubble flare in the first picture to connect to the factory LS rear brake lines?

No, that is the first part of the double flare. That NiCoop forms so beautifully. You would never see that first picture on steel line, at least with a hand flaring tool. Some day I want to buy one of those presses like Eastwood has for flaring so I make the bubble flares and more.

I forgot how long it takes to run and make brake lines... I am getting close to putting fluid in. I added a valve to dial in the rear brakes. I really hope I don't have any leaks. Going to bench bleed the MC this weekend and see what happens.









Ya, I know, the engine looks like it has been there for years... It needs a good cleaning.

I also ordered my custom drive shaft. I should have that late next week.

UPS tracking says my drive shaft will be here Tuesday. I am going to change the rear seal in the transmission before I install it. I also have to convert the shifter to with the overdrive kit and finish the exhaust. Then I should be able to see if it moves! It is nice to see progress because it gets me excited which motivates me to go out to the shop at 8pm when all I want to do is shower and go to bed....

I kinda think that we are keeping each other motivated at this point since we are at very similar points. I feel the same way, if I don't go out when I have that sliver of energy I won't go out at all. But I keep reminding myself that if I don't do the work, I can't drive it in the spring. Looking great, it will be such a cool feeling to drive it under it's own power!

I received my drive shaft I bought on ebay. A1 drive shaft Milwaukee Wisconsin. $238 shipped. Heavy duty U joints installed.

I cleaned up my slip yoke and the drive shaft slid right in place. I also installed part of my shift works overdrive conversion kit. Her is what you get.







I will post some detailed pictures of the actual shifter conversion when I get to the interior installation. As of now I can at least shift the transmission.

Things to do:
Bleed the master cylinder and then the brakes.
Finish the exhaust
Finish installing the rear sway bar.
Front shocks
Install the passenger door and fender.
Fill radiator

This just to see if it moves...

I bled the master cylinder. I didn't have one of those bleeder kits and this new non reman unit didn't come with one. I used the only new tubing I had laying in my toolbox drawer. I then installed it on the car. Bled the lines as best as I could by myself and a bottle. No leaks, so that was a relief. I will have my son help me this weekend and see if I can get any more air out.

Brakes bled for good. Rear sway bar installed and exhaust run. I hate exhaust and even with a great fitting Pypes transverse kit I still swore a little bit. Their hangers are pretty much junk though. Two ripped in half already and it's not even on the road. I will be looking for something better, maybe from a production piece..??

I am going to paint the dash and install the passenger side door and fender and then set her on the ground and see what happens..
79 Trans am 301 (work in progress) LS swap n progress
79 Formula 301 (Work in progress)
67 RS Camaro (Work in progress)
See the recurring theme???

Man, you are cruising right along!
Thanks for the info on where you got your drive shaft...That was on my list of things to research.
Can you tell me, how exactly do I measure to get the length?  Do you measure from the end of the tail-shaft to like the center of the circles in the u-joint at the rear?   Forgive me if this is elementary, but I don't recall...
The drive shaft comes with the yoke that slides into the trans tail-shaft...They aren't separate pieces right? And the end that fits in the u joint at the rear end...That's like some standard size, right?
So, the driveshaft place just needs to know I'm using a 1999 4L60E out of a Firebird and the length from the back of the trans to the u-joint is X.

The paint looks great, I"m jealous too I'm probably at least a year away from where you are.
Keep it up!
