    HoosierGTA 's CARS AND PROJECTS

    Changed the fuel filter yesterday .YOU can splash some gas down the TBI and it will start but still not keep running.Today I decided to forgo the 14hrs that it takes me to do this job w/o a lift, and cut an access hole in the floor to pull the sending unit out. I'll post a picture tomorrow when I have one of the young'ens todo the work for me .

    But If I'm going to have to paint the nose red might as well paint the hood .T -tops have cracks took the rear seats out yesterday ,set them on fire that should kill the mold . Leaving the seat belts in just in case.Really it's not going to be any less comfy back there !

    however, i gotta disagree, my buddy painted his hood black, (similar style of car) and he regretted it. I thought it looked bad too. It looked like he just bought the hood as a replacement and hadn't had time to paint it yet. i always had a lot of appreciation for rough car with good fit. When all the gaps are even, the doors shut without rattles, it says more to me than a cobbled together paintjob and sloppy fit.
    If I do go with the back hood and trunk I'll run a 1/8" wide pin stripe about a 1/2 to 1" from the edge ,I think it would make it tie in together . I test fitted the TA nose that came in the trunk I really want a 91 or 92 nose and tail (like whats on the formula that DF is trying to sell )but, this is what I gotto get it on the road. It'll allow me to not have to pay top dollar for the first on I find.
    Oh, thats much better than painting it black gap to gap. but you knew that.

    HoosierGTA 's CARS AND PROJECTS GTA and Formula projects

    P.S> I just camein from the garage .Just started the formula ,When I bought it they said it start but the batt. was dead. I was going to by it anyway since I have a 300hp / 355 and a stock 305 on the garage floor but , nice to not have to do a swap.Really want to put the 355 in the GTA. It didnt even smoke. Now all I have to do is figure why it won't keep running.(305 tbi ) probably fuel pump, or filter. Obviously its been in a mild crash do these cars have a reset botton for the fuel pump?

    For those of you out there that haven't figured this out VortecRS is my son and the car was in my name only for the cheaper insurance rates.

    I obviously love the GTA 's but the formulas just seem more down to buisness. It'll make a better everyday car cause the T-tops and w/out the ground effects theres about 4" inches less width to swing my work boots over!

    Sorta like the late 70s RS camaros.But my favoite color is red . I plan on getting it started tomorrow and we'll go from there. I wasn't kidding about the drug home part. Washed it in the rain yeastrday to see how much of the mildew / tree funk would come off.Man people thot I was nuts one of them even stopped.

    I like the black hood idea. With the hatch and t tops it sounds like it would look good.
