  • 512TR Slow Build

    Bringing my car back from the dead after a long hiatus. She actually was easy on me, I was expecting clogged injectors but not was the case. A hundred in parts to get her running again, fuel pump and sender, battery, plugs, gas filter and she fired up. Nothing fancy underneath, 86 GT 2.8 4 speed. Working on the quarter windows and back glass now, she's gonna be a hardtop.
    Enjoy the pics, regards, Vin

            Interesting fuel cell in the front trunk area. Do you have any info on it, like where did the builder get it, capacity, is it connected to the original tank ?

              I designed the gas tank to fit in the old space where the spare tire was, which is now in the rear trunk. I made an actual size cardboard mock-up, which I took to the local radiator repair shop with my fiero stock tank. They made a tank from scratch and welded in a section of the fiero tank top area that has the pump opening. So the new tank uses the stock fuel pump and sender. I just needed to extend the wires and fuel lines to the front of the car and run a ground wire closer to the new tank. Thanks, Vinny

                    I'll be making the interior over the winter. I'm starting with the Sun Visors. I slit the thread on the old visors down the edge with a razor, opened them up, removing the retaining screw

                      This is the tan vinyl I chose for the interior to go with the black vinyl. It has a leather -like grain embossed into it like a football. The roll on the left in the 1st picture is called SewFoam, it gets sewn to the underside of seat covers but only on areas that you actually sit. 2nd pic is the vinyl rough trimmed at 13x18 inches, and 3rd pic shows folding over the edges after applying 3M Spray Adhesive Contact Cement #45 from a can.

                        Pic1 shows how I trim the corners to prevent bunching up of the glued vinyl. Pic 2 is the folded visor before sewing. And getting it together. -Vinny

                              That tank looks slick. Did you remove the OEM one?
