Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Though it don't look like much, complete tear down and re-tape/new loom of the entire engine harness... alot of freaken work. Dug into the dash for wideband and boost gauge install as well. Also added/changed some things:
  • Relocated the air charge sensor to just before TB (eliminates intake heat-soak)
  • Wired in Brake Fluid Level Sensor (Voice Alert)
  • Wired in Coolant Level Sensor (Voice Alert)
  • Upgraded ground wires to one gage larger, soldered all terminals
  • Completely rebuilt harness to speed sensor/trans ground/reverse switch, etc.. disassembled connector pin by pin and new wiring from scratch.
  • New speed sensor, coolant sensor, oil pressure sender, reverse switch plugs
  • New battery posts
  • Added fused +12V from battery through firewall for planned Subwoofer addition
  • Added seperate grounds, soldered to one lug, to block and through firewall for wideband electronics. Connectors added for at each factory junction point.
  • Correctly wired in custom computer cooling fan with connectors, re-postioned to dump cold air onto K&N cone filter
  • Wideband cabling through firewall
  • Individual fused switched ignition +12V from back of fuse block (what a prick to get apart!).. for Wideband/Gauge/Sensor Heater and Boost Gauge/Boost Sensor











Liking the Innovate wideband gauge so far, looks great and looks to be really good quality materials. Also like the Prosport gauge, looks awesome and a cool startup, boost sensor looks cheap but we will see..

Unknown.. but I really believe it is the original or at most replaced early in life, the motor is a 90-91 with probably near 150-200k km on it.

The head is coming off this spring to replace the tired Mitsu turbo with a rebuilt TII garrett, so she only has to make it 30km more to my father's garage (with a hoist.. oh so nice)

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Thanks guys

So been busy, rebuilt the T2 Garrett I had. Bought a basic kit from G pop shop and a new garrett center housing off ebay, total cost with shipping was $150 to rebuild. Went the extra mile and sandblasted and painted it. Real (cheap) men rebuild their own turbos lol!





Also pulled the trigger on the headliner. Only could find a decent hardtop headliner around here so I have decided to try and cut a t-top one out of it. Layed down the remains of an old t-top headliner and traced out and cut. Bought some padded fleece fabric from a local sewing store and a can of 3M super 77. Total cost $16. Haven't put it in yet so fingers crossed it fits ok.

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

Also FINALLY found a decent set of factory Valeo driving lights from a member on here. However one was missing a mount and the other the bolt was snapped off (typical).

So looking at the factory mounting I decided to make my own mounts. Used 1 1/2 x 1/8in Aluminium flat bar and cut three pieces.

Center bar notched to recieve the tabs on the light housing. Sandwiched the three pieces with rivets and drilled two holes through the middle of the sandwich to insert screws and washers. These screws hold the light housing into the custom mount.

Then got some taper head 3/8 by 2in bolts and drilled the center of the custom mount for the bolt. Note the head is mounted flush with the aluminium sandwich. Fastened this down with a locknut and washer. Then just anouther set of washers, lock washer and nut to mount it on car.

It won't swivel up and down like from factory, but these mounts I made make the light point slightly down, which is where the factory mounts sieze anyway lol

Re: Yellonoma's 89 Daytona Shelby T-top Resto Thread

I'm going to skip the covers because I need them on all the time to "follow" daytime running lights, I hate having the pop up headlights on during the day.

However whats the word on those illuminated entry door handles doc? I kinda forgot about that.
