LOVE that stuff! Definately get that stuff. Some shops only carry yellow though, if you care.
Used it for all the stuff on my Nova, still holding up well. I even used it to fix a cut in my wetsuit booties worked great.

Used the 3M adhesive, works good I think (still needs to dry).

So I installed the frame into the door and have one small issue... Apparently the door seal is too thick cause the door won't close all the way with the frame installed

I guess I need a thinner bulb or something?

Got both frames installed now. Both doors don't close, although the passenger one closes farther than the driver side. I need to adjust the driver side door cause the frame is hitting the body a little.

Got the rear side windows installed. The latches from the old Corolla seem to work perfectly:







Took a bit of finesse to get those installed, and I had to modify the top little bracket because the changes to the paint/body made it impossible to use how it was before (had a little nub thing, removed that and made a hole for a bolt instead). My uncle helped out this time, and he came up with the idea of removing part of the bulb seal temporarily to get these in, I would have never thought of that, LOL!

What are you doing about the interior? Like door card material and seats? You might have said before but I forgot. I think a black and white hounds tooth material on the seats and door cards would be perfect. Anyway, nice seeing an update.

Interior is still pretty much up in the air, although I'm fairly certain of which specific seats I want.

I probably won't do any more with the interior until the engine is fully functional.

Default FF 1 Collection

Hi All,
As a mechanic here in Santa Fe, NM in the mid-eighties, I realized the great engineering of the FF1. I have several of them out in the back yard, mostly incomplete. I'm not sure what to do with them - anyone interested?
Thanks,
Van Baehr

Had some craziness happen again today

I've been smelling fuel in the garage the last week or so, and I found that the fuel line that went to the carb was leaking a bit. So I pulled the car out of the garage for today.

I went to fiddle with the fuel line and as soon as I did it started spewing fuel EVERYWHERE! I clamped it as quickly as I could, but not before a lot of fuel got in the engine bay.

I figured there was something going on with fuel pressure, so I went to unplug the fuel cap... Couldn't get it off. Had to tap it a few times and finally get a good enough grip on it, and as soon as I did the thing EXPLODED like a shaken soda can!!!

I have no idea whats going on with that, but I'm leaving the fuel cap off for now. I figure something is wrong with the fuel tank being pressurized like that, might have to do with running the fuel pump last year and leaving it sitting for so long with all the changes in temperature over that time.

Any ideas about whats going on? Maybe I need some sort of pressure-release fuel cap?

Anyway, some photos while I had the car outside...
