Re: 1987 Daytona Shelby Z Project

Moving along nicely Isaak! That color pops like crazy in the sun! There aren't a whole lot of t-tops cars left because of the seal shrinkage. A friend of mine had a white '86 CS t-tops that had zero floor. He sold it to someone down near Benton Illinois and they were going to do floorboards. They decided they couldn't save it and sold it to another guy, acting as though it had a good floor. They drove a long way and picked the car up at night. I met up with that current owner on Facebook when he was parting the car. My TII turbo water pipe from my GLHS that I had given my friend was still sitting in the car. Sorry for the slight de-rail.

Part of why it amazed me how little rust the car has. I did cut a hole in the carpet in the rear passenger footwell to examine the floor pan and, while there is rust, it doesn't go all the way through and has held my weight before. When the carpet comes up it'll get a good cleanup and some sheet metal if necessary.
As for the paint, it's a fantastic color but it has typical 80's clear coat peel. When it's eventually time for a repaint I was thinking I'd repaint it to the new mopar plum crazy. I'd like to keep the car purple and I think a 2019 color will give the car a nice updated look. That being said, I want to look at some new mopars painted purple first, as I don't want the color to be too loud. I'm not going for the ricer look.

That's not running hot, that's running lean. Cause either by bad tune, bad wiring/connection or fail injector.

Get the injectors tested before using them.

Re: 1987 Daytona Shelby Z Project

Don't waste your time trying to clean old carpet. New carpet is cheap.

That carpet isn't gonna get reused. It's Bad. I do plan to clean up the floor plan under the carpet when I remove it.

Re: 1987 Daytona Shelby Z Project

If the floor doesn't have any holes, consider buying a gallon of EvapoRust, or something similar, and just pouring it onto the bare floor. That way, you don't remove any metal, and create holes.

I was thinking some paint-over-rust. I've had good luck with that on other cars

Re: 1987 Daytona Shelby Z Project

It's so easy to chemically remove the rust, that you should do that first. I've tried the painting over it, with a PUR type paint, method and it ends up having to be redone.

I'm certainly willing to give a rust remover a try but I've had really good success with various rust remover products on my 72 Buick. I did the brake drums with a rattle-can por and the front of the frame with brush-on POR-15. I've had mixed results with the various rust removal products I've tried.
