84 Resto

Thought I show my Start on this 84 Spider. I had posted about Spark earlier and have the Flame thrower Disty now and spark...
This car is already down to bare metal from PO.
Hasnt't been on the road in about 5-6 yrs..
Some pics to show the Now condition... I was holding off starting anything until I got Spark and had the Injectors working, which I hope they are ready...
Im going to re install tomorrow and hopefully get her started..
I took the Tank out and cleaned it, I have New hoses for the tank area.
Injectors spray
New coil
New Plugs and wires, rotor and cap.
PO, New Timing chain, upper motor, Engine mounts.
So wish me luck and Ill post Pics as I start the paint and interior install..

more Pics

Last Pic is what it was Prior to PO stripping it down...
All metal work is METAL< No Bondo...

So I'm treating the seats with Oils to try to get it a little softer,
Not sure if Ill keep them or not, One has a 2 inch hole...
Panels all seem in good condition, I got the windows working, Blower works, Radio works..

Hi Rob,
I have an '84 Veloce Deluxe and live it. A total boulevard cruiser compared to our '69. This one only has 9500 miles now. Are you going to go for originality or just rebuild for fun? If you need info, just ask. As long as it's not too technical. There are other who are way more versed than I.

She Started!!!

Well, She must like the warmer weather....Like me.
I put everything back together and She started . I had a few Moments prior to that , like back fires, smoke from the bad gas in the engine, blew off a few loose hoses, and all the starting fluid and stuff I tried...
Did a few adjustments, forgot to tighten a few things here and there...

I have a lot more to do but at least I know she can run... Feeling MUCH Better.think Ill get a new FPR since this is same one that came with the car...
In Tank pump is on its way and sending unit same...

Pivot pin removal.. Un screwed the two engine bay bolts and two inside firewall bolts , tapped pin out and used vise grip to pull pin out as the arm was broken off...I did undo all the fluid lines as I wanted to replace it all anyway and wanted to clean the area up,, and tapped out pin .. Now to get a pivot pin...

So Today I put the Tank Back in, Cover,and New Fuel Lines,clips...
Waiting for Filler hose
I also tested to see if the fuel gauge worked and it does.. I need to get a sending unit the one I have is toast.
I put a small hose for now so I can start the car while I'm waiting...
I have a New pump but didn't want to install until the sending unit arrives...
Tomorrow I have a few rust spots in the trunk to complete and then I have some Engine parts to Paint... Oil separator, Air cleaner cover,etc...
Once Pivot pin is in Ill get that all back together.
