    Default the twins

    well I figure I will start this thread to showcase my two black firebirds and how they are now and show my progress as I restore them. I will be selling one eventually to my mom but they are both still my project cause I will be the one working on which ever one she ends up with how ever the one I keep will get more love. for any one who has not read my thread on the new member section I have a 96 with the 3.8 and a 94 with the 3.4. Phase one for both is to simply get them up to stock or better running order that includes engine, interior, handling and exterior. first I will start with the 94 since that is the one I am currently driving then I will go into the 96.

    the 1994:











    phase 1 to-do list:
    new wipers
    new belt
    head liner
    seats recovered/replaced
    diagnose a/c problems
    new back speakers-DONE
    repair to chips in widshield
    fix front bumper mounts
    remove junk half/ass wireing for music-DONE
    replace headlight gears
    replace tail light lenes
    paint(though I am not sure when i will have money for this)



    The 1996:


    (more pictures when I am at home to take more)

    phase 1 to do list:
    (this one may change because I have not started or driven this one so more could be wrong)
    replace fuel pump
    replace windshield
    new battery
    replace struts for hatch
    replace tail lights
    brakes (at the least hone the front rotors)
    install music (not even the factory speakers are there
    obtain covers for factory speaker locations.
    paint at least the hood.


    wow when putting it in a list it seems like a lot but its really not. If I had the money (big if cause I don't) most of it could be knocked out in a few days.

    Quite the opposite...I have very empty pockets...that's why after phase 1 is done one is getting sold to my mom to pay for either another bike or more goodies for the one I keep

    Nah.... put a cam in one... turbo the other. Go race some unsuspecting idiot with the cam only car... then a week later bust his ass with the turbo car. Gotta make em both look alike of course!!!
