Update:
She was sanded down to bare metal. Body still very good, no rust and almost no body putty. Nice solid body.
Was then painted a thick white primer to see any marks which needed attention.

After that another primer and then the final coat.

I am busy putting the pontiac back together.
On the firewal, between the two wipers, is this electric wire. I can see from the colour of it that it made a short circuit.
It was not connected to anything when I disassembled the vehicle.
Does anybody know what this is for?

Also the flap in the second picture, where does that go?

The flap looks like the fresh air/ recirculation flap for the air conditioning?

Is the wire not for the aerial?
My Trans Am has the aerial built into the windscreen and the wire comes out the bottom.

The flap goes on the cowl. I think it recirculates fresh air from outside and is vacuum driven.

Thanx, found the flap's spot. Will check out the arial.

What happened to the 301 forum, has it been down for long?

Not sure. Normally just sit on the Trans Am Country forums.

How is your trans am going, did you finish her?

What tyres do you have on your's? The tyres on mine is perished, so I need to fit new tyres. Not sure if I must get something wit white lettering on.

Mmm, not sure which clips you are referring to. Wurth normally stock loads of different clips locally. FBodywarehouse.com may also have what you're looking for.

Mine is back on the road. Still a few things to sort out and finish up, but been driving her around and slowly sorting out small things.

I've got 17's on. Toyo Proxes 255's all round.
