PostSubject: My new winter beater   Tue Oct 12, 2010 2:33 pm

Well sort of. Wink Depending on condition, it could eventually become my hot rod too. Twisted Evil But one thing at a time. scratch
It is a 94 LT1 9C1 with 133k on it and a peg leg. Standard white with blue int. Needs a tuneup, and a water pump installed, a couple mufflers, two passenger doors, drivers window regulator,back drivers side glass, and a spare tire. But other than that, it seems to be good. I may hold off for two 95-96 doors to get the bigger mirrors. But again maybe I won't. Who knows
Anyways, here she is. cheers





And after my hubcap mod. Wink

Sitting next to her baby sister. Razz


And a special thanks goes out to Bill Crovo. You da man! cheers

And Glen for the matching clutter catcher. It is like they are twins now. Razz

Very nice man! I have a garage full of used tire/wheels, so don't pay for a spare if you don't have to!

Dude that floor came out great! Did you clean it in place?

Try some Tuff Stuff with an upholstery cleaning scrub brush and some ripped T-shirts, that did wonders for the seats in my car when I got it.

Wow, Billy! That looks GREAT! Smile

I think it's funny that I searched forever for that rear seat in grey while I had my impala but could never find it. And this car has the style upholstry I was looking for!!!!! (Would match front bonnies)

I thought you said rat rod. I read it again this time it said hot rod.

The floor mat came out nice.

I've lost more of those hub caps than the black Charger in Bullitt.

LOL! I started with windex, and then I broke out the tire cleaner, and sprayed the crap out of it. Then I mixed dawn, heavy duty truck wash, 409, and simple green, and washed the entire engine compartment with a mit. Then sprayed armor all and closed the hood. Stil not perfect, but a lot better.

BTW. I emptied the vac today, and the amount of dirt filled a 5 gallon bucket 3" deep. That was from the int, trunk, and even under the hood and cowl.

Bill, I would be extremely careful using anything like armor all under the hood. Stuff like that contains silicone could ignite with enough heat.

Did the opti, water pump, wires and seals today. I also discovered the tesioner was bad, so I replaced with a spare I had.
The opti was built with four seperate optis to make one, and the water pump was a good used one I had.
I also pieced togeher the opti vent harness with three different harneses. This is why I keep everything. Wink










This is what the magic marker is for.



Installed opti without cap to make correct placement easy.





Also installed the spare and carpet I got from Glen, and the window I got from Anthony.

Was the original opti bad?
Also, does the position of the dampner matter?
Or only if you've found & marked TDC?

So how's it run?

Got a good opti base? I need one, as my spare snapped all 4 bolts for the cap flush when I tried to take them off. Sad

The original opti was fine. In fact it was not that old. But the cap and rotor were junk, and the opti harness was cracked. I had a couple optis that were questionable, and Crovo gave me one as well. The opti from the car turned out to be the best, but the cap and rotor from Crovo was better. The mitsubishi pick up from another along with the opti disc from yet another was used to build one good one. The fact is the only money I spent was a front cover kit that has every gasket, seal and o-ring needed, everything else was used parts.

On the hub there is pointer seen in one valley between the bolt holes. There is a pointer on the dampner as well. Just line the two up.

I have enough parts to make another opti except the middle portion of the unit. I too had bolts frozen, so I cut the bolts off in that middle section. In short yes. I have three.

Billy, don't throw out the old lens! If it's not cracked, you can polish it clear with a Powerball Mini and some PlastX...I did mine and it worked great.
