The ignition switch came to pass as in the key trick would not work...I broke the key swisting it while pushing in the pin and pushing in and turning pass the acc. switch. I ended up drilling out the whole mechanism to get it out.

I went to Schuck's at Strokie's suggestion and picking up their 5 piece tune up kit. I guess I'll be using that remote starter switch now.

Yesterday, I found the brake pedal push rod locally and had it shipped. Also, I sandblasted all the interior parts that are going to be switched to black and found a few pieces with light rusting occurring. I never figured that the rear kick panels had metal on the back side. If you are reading this now, the metal is now etched primed and waiting a little high build primer before I top coat it tomorrow.

I visited two placed yesterday for quotes on painting and sandblasting. The reason why I am thinking about sandblasting the car now is what I've found under the dash. There is more surface rust and if I'm going to the expense at painting this car, I don't want to do it again real soon. My friend in Enumclaw and owns a paint booth also has sandblasting equipment has allowed me to use his stuff. I thinking about getting him a nice SATA HVLP gun for his help.

Can anyone help with suggestions on paint,primer and equipment? Please me specific on brand, type, how much, etc. PM me if you want.

My plan is to get the interior finished, cover up the interior then sandblast, prime, body work, and paint. I know after seeing the state of the wiring, Painless is going in the car.

Either way, today is the day to start the car for sure.

Hi, Dan.
Can't help you on paint but I think you might want to sandblast BEFORE you put in you new interior. That stuff has a way of getting into everything regardless of how well its covered up.

Not sure if your familiar with this site but it's a good resource for auto body and paint info. It was a tremendous help to me when I painted my first car and is still my go to place to post tough question when I need answers. Good luck. :highfive:

Brian,
I checked out that site last week and read quite a bit. I'll just put the new interior in and when I'm ready to tear it down to paint, I'll have a work party.

Ken,
I asked Wesco about HVLP sprayers and will be checking on two of their recommendations.

To all,

The car is now running so thanks for all the help PNWer's.

No video...wife lost the charger to the battery. It has the same throaty sound of GT350Clone's since it is exactly the same.

Well, same exhaust set-up.

But, he's running a 320hp FRPP crate motor, it's a 9:1 c/r.

Your's was built a bit stouter than that, bigger cam, etc. correct?
In theory...your's should sound BETTER. :winkgrin:
Plus, the s/c...those sound pretty cool too no?

I didn't install the SC's belt due to it needs ~2k miles because everything needs to properly sit first. I am just going to leave it installed without the belt this summer and once the paint in on, I'll complete the install.

They are saying 2000 miles breakin before adding the SC? That seems a bit extreem. $20.00 says you don't make it 2K before you HAVE to try it.

How much boost is your current pulley configuration going to put out?

It is between 6 and 8 lbs.
That should be a good number for a compromise between power and keeping reliability. You may be able to find undersize SC pulley to increase the boost, or overdrive the crank pulley...but my BP guess would be around 60-80HP gains at 7 lbs boost. Did you get any numbers with it?

No, I talked to someone in Cal. that has a twin turbo '65 fastback and he ran the numbers for mine. He said around 460 for HP. I need to have the pistons sated correctly which usually takes 2-3K miles so it won't be placed on. I've spent 8K for the motor. No need to waste any more money.
