Been working on my GT6 since the day I bought it back in 95. The PO I saved it from claimed it was 'paint ready'-we've all heard that in one form another! Lots of rust, bondo, and rust. Did I mention rust?
I drove it for 2 years while it rusted further and I collected funds to buy needed body panels.
Back then I purchased floors, rockers, and a battery tray, but never got much chance to actually work on it.
Now 17 years later and a donor tub I am up to my ears in work. I always say 'One of these days I'll drive it again' and I really am getting closer. Much of the work I have put into the car has happened since 2009.
Rusted out floor pans, rockers, heelboard, trunk floor, quarter panels...the usual. But also needing replacement were the lower firewall sections, the firewall shelf, rear valance, rear emblem panel, upper and lower A-pillars, dash frame, outer wheel wells, and the lower corners of the windshield frame. Yeah, pretty much the whole tub. Maybe I shoulda used it as a parts car?

Abby decided to try her hand at measuring. All she had to say was "Seven!"

Loose throttle shafts. I didn't snap a shot of the other one but it's a little worse. You can see just how worn they are. I called Joe Curto today to order oversized shafts as I was afraid the bores were also worn. He said to slide the shafts just enough to one side until the non worn part of the shaft is in the bore and see if there is still play. I did so and there is no play, so thankfully the bores are in good condition. I'll order stock sized shafts tomorrow, and no need for a reamer.

Got a 'New' dual choke cable (thanks Jarret!) The cables are a tad long but will function just fine for now. I set the OEM knob aside so I wouldn't lose, so naturally I can't find it.

Got the wheels on. A little more work on the dash pad. Filled the low spots then covered it with a 1/4" sheet of foam. Used 3m 76 spray glue. Cover in vinyl later
