Bringing this guy back from the dead. Changed careers mid-build. I went from making great money with plenty of disposable income as a kid, to a new career for a start up (that has since led to me progressing big time in that field and now working for the industry leader) and finally able to get back into this thing. And boy have things changed. The shop doing the work relocated and I went broke while starting the new the car went into storage. It's been primed and ready to go though. Getting an update tomorrow, can't wait.

Also, I'm bringing the 403 back to stock, and holding onto it. I caught the FI bug...and I'm thinking it's time to just build an LS platform and be done with it. I really want to drive this car, and not beat up the 403...

Anyway, if anyone here is still around, I'll have some updates sooner or later. Can't wait to get back into this thing...and get all my parts out of my storage unit.

I have a 79 firebird trans am and my center console has the hole and the switch for power windows, but my doors are for manual crank windows. What all do I need to convert to power windows? This is my first restoration and I'm a kid so need all the help I can get. Is there a kit? Do I need new doors? Thank You so much and any help is greatly appreciated!

A friend of mine has a decent project 1981 Turbo T/A Coupe for sale on his eBay account. Car is very solid and appears to have 93K actual miles. Interior is decent. No rust that I am aware of.  To my knowledge numbers matching engine. Car has not been in road salt as salt has not been used here. If you have been looking for a project turbo T/A you may want to consider this one.

Restoration / Power steering pressure line Dilemma, Please help!
« Last post by Axlove78 on September 16, 2017, 08:33:39 PM »
 I am having a terrible time trying to replace the power steering pressure line on my 78 firebird with 77 pontiac 350 after discovering it was leaking at the connection with the PS gearbox. The only correct one I found on, (21857866) appears to be discontinued. Any ideas of how I can find one, or perhaps have one custom made. :-\ Thanks,
P.S. heres the link to the part that is unavailable:

Easy!  You will need a steering wheel puller. Available for rent at Orielly's or Autozone.  Here's one of many videos on how to do it if you do a google search:
