I finished my main harness survey today, and found more "minor" problems.

Here's some evidence of a short circuit and some melting insulation.

And, hiding under some old tape, evidence of high quality PO mods.

Altogether, I found 30 problems to repair (so far). Look for the blue tape.

These are the areas I like to use the 3 to 1 marine grade shrink tube.

Trying to gather all the parts I will have powder-coated.

Here's my awesome red air filter housing.

While in a red mood, I pulled out the transaxle. I need to figure out how to clean this (and remove the red paint).

After muscling the trans into and around the parts cleaner, here is the red glory revealed.

At least the injectors are all green. Time to send these off for servicing.

I also took apart the intake plenum and throttle body.

Inside the plenum: oily sludge!

Regarding all the Red, what can I say it was the 80's. Girls had big tall hair and us guys painted everything body color.

Still sorting through boxes from the disassembly last fall. This is all the "extra" electrical stuff: an awesome audio system with cassette deck, amp, and 4 speakers; an alarm system that was wired in to about 10 places, at least 2 hidden start disable switches, an ignition start bypass with solenoid, and about 10 miles of wire.

Anybody want some?

Here's the fuel pump, with some red--but not the real RED. The PO did relocate the pump--to inside the right rear fender! It runs with power (or at least makes noise).

Another project: the relay board. Ugly.

The underside is even uglier, and the dielectric material is loose and spontaneously falling out.

A little persuasion, and the stuff comes off. I need to clean this up, check all the leads, and refill with dielectric epxoy.

Next up: the brain box. Another great OP idea, painting it black.

At least the inside looks clean.
