So inquiring minds want to know, what are you plating?

I'll plate whatever I can that would benefit from it. Any nut, bolt, scre, washer I take off I'd like to plate before reinstalling. Small brackets, trunk latches, that sort of stuff.

I still need to pick up the stuff for the yellow chromate, so everything will have that yellowish sheen to it. If that ends up looking off for some of the things that used to be black I might try to get some black chromate for those parts.

Sounds awesome.   Can't wait to see the results of it all.

  Now that Lisa and I are out here in Abby, I need to have you over one of these days for Coffee.   I'd love to pick your brain about that LSD you put in your Getrag.     I am curious if it makes the transaxle stronger to any degree.    Seeing as I have the trans just sitting out of the car in the corner if I was going to do it, now would be the time.   Just don't want to toss in a bunch of time and money if the transaxle is going to explode just as fast as I am expecting it to.

Did you manage to fix the board (aka, figure out what the torched resistor was!)?

If not - look on the underside, and see what pin it went to on the IC.  Get the number off the IC, then look up a bunch of random schematics, and see if it's a common value going to that pin.

All I can see of whats left, is that it'll be a low number (first ring is black - "0").

Sounds good Dave, I work just off Sumas so could stop by after work sometime.

I have not had any time to fix it yet, been pretty busy lately. First band looks to be green I'm pretty sure, especially compared to the other ones that do have a black band. I'll try looking for a number somewhere on the board and seeing if that leads me anywhere.

I looked up the numbers found on the bottom of the board, and found photos of a power supply with a board with the same numbers! Unfortunately it was not the same board and was no help :(

I tried a few different resistors, 500k and 5k ohm changed nothing. 51 ohm let the smoke out quickly and brightly, so I figure that's close enough to the right value, and my problem lies elsewhere. I will have I keep digging, or buy a new one.

I made progress on the fiero too!

Got the front of the chassis painted:

As well as the upper rad support.

I also made a new rolling workbench/winter tire storage.

Ended up a bit tall, but I can always shorten it if it is a problem. Gotta love the coated 27mm birch plywood for the top surface though.

Still making progress.

Finally got everything set up for zinc plating, it's putting zinc on things, but not as nicely as I would like, so still need to play with it some more.
Power supply had a dead transistor, so once I figured that out I got t working again.



I have repainted both radiator crossmembers and crashbar. Cleaned up and reinstalled the wiring harness and headlight module, as well as the crashbar.



I've also cleaned up a bunch of other parts, radiator shroud and fan, some rubber bits, I painted the windshield cowl, and also one of the wheel well liners, but not sure if I'll do the rest, I'll see how the one holds up.

I won't have time to do much at all to the exterior of the car, so it will still have a super scratched up roof and rock chips peppering the whole front end at the PPPCC show.

I still need to figure out if my radiator was leaking, and re run my new battery cables and it would be driveabable.

Still gotta figure out how to make it shinier. And why that one spot didn't get plated and sand blast it better.
Before/after zinc/ after chromate

I did get my car back together for the pontiac show, but haven't done much with it since.
Here are some more photos, I ended up running out of time to get all the last nuts and bolts plated, and when I get around to figuring out how to make it shinier, I will pull a bunch of the visible ones off and re plate them eventually.









I also got rid of the power distribution block by the C500 connector and all of the fusible links. Most of those wires were getting worn and corroded and giving me issues. They all got power from through the firewall and went right back into the firewall after anyway. So added a fuse box inside my centre console to replace the fusible links.



This is also the last time I'll be using photobucket, so hopefully I'm far enough from my limit they don't screw up all my existing photos.

I have been working on new stuff too.

Making a plate to block the silencer ports on my other supercharger.









And I also started cleaning up the brass/copper radiator. Gonna make it all shiny.

Well poo.

I'll have to make some time to go back and fix it all.

Imgur seems to be what a lot of people recommend. So that's what I have switched to.

Flickr seems to be another good one, ken uses it, but I never have.
