    Thread: Resurrection of the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

    1. 09-09-2011 10:14 PM #101
      No photos tonight. Assembled the catch can to figure out how I'll end up plumbing it. Also started messing with the E codes. Going to need to fab up a couple simple brackets and trim the radiator support. Lastly got the oil pan off and started to cut the bung out to re-weld into the new pan. The bottom end of this motor looks really clean.

      Thanks Robin for the brackets; I owe you!

      Got the front end test fit. Wrapped the downpipe. Finished up installing the catch can, just need hoses now.

      Just finished cleaning up the garage after welding the oil return fitting into the new oil pan. Going to try and powdercoat a bunch of stuff tomorrow. Realized I need an air filter, oil pressure/stoich/boost guage trifecta, hood struts, and other misc stuff. Like brakelines from the caliper to the hardline.

      The devil is in the details. BTW...motor internals look good.

      that's awesome. can't wait till you're done with this.

      Me either. Air filter ordered today. Still looking for gauges. Didn't get to work much on it today, and tomorrow looks full too. Things are falling into place though for sure.

      Summbeach...went to re-install the textured side moldings and found out I need 12 more of the clips on the right (the shorter ones...old and busted on the right, got a bunch of the new hotness on the left). Pretty sure the P/N on the bag is for the taller clips (look close at the height difference). Going to need to do a little research on this one.

      i had the same problem. finally have up and used double side tape. they been holding on pretty good

      I heard they're like 90 cents each at the dealership...just gotta find out availability.

      According to my research, the part numbers should be:
      1H0 853 585 ~ clips for ends of molding
      1H0 853 585-B ~ middle clips
      1H0 853 586 ~ rubber grommets

      Problem solved. Found some online at clipsandfasteners.com. $11 for 15 of them shipped including grommets.

      Brake lines ordered.

      Original owner did a nice job on that for sure. Need to figure out a seal between it and the sheat metal.

      The quality of work here is impressive. Digging how it's coming together. Onward

    21. 09-13-2011 08:06 PM #121
      Kevin; I'll be in touch about the TB, might be fun to be the guinea pig!

      I'm not really digging the Depot dummy fogs/long turns. They were meant for a euro bumper and don't fit too well. Might look into ditching them and just rocking stock stuff.

      Picking up the inner smoke tailights tomorrow afternoon; will try to assemble the backend as much as possible.

      Was looking at the muffler and didn't like how it was 'rotated' a bit. I debated cutting it off, turning it a bit and then re-welding, but after a closer look, it was rotated on purpose to fit the contour of the underbody. If it were leveled out, it would rub. Bummer, oh well.

      Need to get a bunch of wiring stuff coming so I can extend the front light harness wiring and the engine harness wiring. This is going to be a lot of work.

      Didn't get to do any powdercoating last weekend, going to try to wake my lazy behind up before 8 on Saturday and get to work. I'd really like to get this car back on the ground in the next couple weeks.

      Before halloween would be cool, but we'll see!

      I need to adjust the trunk latch alignment (mis-alignment of the lights can be seen in the photo above) Also got the side molding clips in.
