'78 T/A
« on: September 26, 2008, 08:20:05 PM »
Hey guys, thought I'd post some pictures of my project.  I've been reading some of the other posts and find them great.  I bought the car when I was in University 3 years ago and haven't really had a chance to work on it until this summer.  It's coming slowly... but I'm trying to do it right.  I pretty much tore out the whole interior and welded in some patches in the floor pan.  I'm having trouble attaching pictures because they are so large.  Any good free programs to shrink the file size?

Welcome  ;D

This should help you out...just set up an account at a photo hosting site, like www.photobucket.com , and load your pix there. You can then post the IMG code of the pic into your post here...any questions, just ask

No problem...happy to help ;D
Looks like you're making some progress..how deep into the restoration process do you plan to go?

Is this a Y88 (gold special edition) by chance?

That was my question.  It looks like a solid project.

I don't think so.  I should be able to tell by the V.I.N. though right.  I'll check again.

The VIN won't tell you...though "sometimes" the code (Y88) is stamped on the cowl tag (not always though).
The best way to know for sure is to look at your buildsheet if you have it or order the PHS documents for the car.

The Dash is like that because the guy I bought it off of had everything covered in a "velvet" material.  It looked ridiculous.  Unfortunatly when I took it of, it wasn't a pretty picture underneath.  Kind of pissed off about it, but I'll try to clean it up and put a dash cap on it or something.  I'm changing the interior to black anyway.  The floor wasn't to bad.  Had to replace a couple pieces, just finished putting etching primer on it today.  I took the one of the front fenders off today as well.  What a hassle!!  But I got it, have to cut out some rust there as well (Being in Canada, you get a lot of rust!!).

Never mind, I got it.  $60.00 though!  Is it worth it?  Would be kind of cool I guess.
