Fuel leak has been fixed turned out I had a bad fitting on my fuel filter. Looks like it was bad out the box.

Spend the last day with my buddy fabricating a downpipe for the nash. Came out really good. I didn't know how much work tig welding stainless is. We even got the waste gate tied into the down pipe so I don't have a good ol screamer pipe.

Started to work on the interior. Replaced the 3.5 speakers in the dash, they were a toast! Dropped some 3.5 kickers in there and they fit great. Then moved on to the doors and replaced the 5.25 with some kickers as well. Also installed new locks in both doors as I never received the door keys when u bought the nash. Pulled the stock stereo and put in a single din pioneer I got form the yard for 10 bucks. Also installed a new dash speaker cover and put a dash mat over that.

Where are you located? You want a dash from an '86 that's in a might bit better condition (not perfect, but better)?

I'm swimming in dashes and momma needs the room.

My son has those same Kickers installed - they're good, but still a small speaker. How loud are you planning to make the car? They work great at low volumes, but 60+ dB driving they are so so.

Im out in las vegas. I'm going to put the 3.5 and 5.25 on a amp and see how they sound. Not really happy with them off the head unit only. "More power"

Installed a new hydrobooster to fix my leaking one. Been like the 3rd time in had this thing off the car. Couldn't find one for a 84 GN so i ended up using one from an 81 cutlass diesel. It's a little different but bolts right up.
