    Re: Finally Starting on #53

    Any of you found a wiring diagram for the dash wiring? I need to start locating the wires to hook up the indicators on the dash and haven't had any luck yet finding anything. I'm guessing it's an 88 Daytona harness?

    Re: Finally Starting on #53

    Looking for a passengers side outer or drivers side inner headlight if anyone picked up any extra from rosin. I wasn't paying attention when I was grabbing them and I grabbed two drivers side outer lights. I don't really need to bulb just the bucket. looking at it with the bulb glass toward you I need one with a tab on the top and a tab on the left.

    Anyone know if Michael Magree is still a good contact over there? I may try contacting him and see if he could get me one if all else fails.

    Re: Finally Starting on #53

    What are the issues any other GTP owners have had with the speed sensor? I've heard of owners switching to the gps style sensor. I'm looking at gauges for my car and I don't see anything that matches my current sensor and was wondering what the reason is for switching is?

    Same here, just got a new version of the original speedo and figured the gps is more accurate anyways.

    I had problems with the speedo in both my cars. I had several guages , including new ones. None worked. Changed sensors , still nothing.
    Switched to GPS , it works great.

    I switched out of convenience also. Much happier with the GPS speedo.

    Got a windshield wiper and laid out some fiberglass sheets to make the lower covers for the front and rear.

    Squared up my fiberglass sheets and installed my cleaned up and painted cruise actuator. Just need to measure out what size I need and cut it to the proper size.

    Wow! I did not realize how much of a cluster that roadster was going to be, I was just enamored by it to the point I'd probity cut off a ear or an appendage for it..

    It's like buying a worst case scenario "basket case" car

    Re: Finally Starting on #53

    Honestly I feel like I'm getting close to the end of the tunnel. I have half the gauges ordered, just need to get the rest and install the dash, then get the fuel tank and I should be able to start it. Finish up the brakes and From there it will be finish up the body work and the paint and get to the interior. Still lots to do but nothing crazy. I just only have a few hours a week to work on it so it's slow moving.

    Wow it's been a year since I've updated this. Built a new house so it wasn't until this winter I got the car into the new garage. I have all of the gauges now and wiring them up in the dash. I extended the short tail spoiler I had picked up at Rosin and have that roughed in.

    Looking good Benji!!
    Don't worry, take your time and you'll be happy with the results.

    It took me almost 4 months to do the motor swap and it looked like a basket case up until the day before it ran for the first time.
