Hey everyone!

Just picked up this 88 all trac yesterday. It's pretty crusty and has 237k miles on it, but hopefully it's fun for a bit.

todo list:
- Rebuild the ct26
- Starter Relay mod
- Figure out why windows don't work, any suggestions would be helpful. I already cleaned driver-side switch
- Replace fog lights
- Figure out why lumbar switch does nothing
- Figure out if sunroof works (switch was laying in the back seat so probably not)
- Figure out why rear wiper doesn't work

Already installed a walbro 255, so I will probably have to do the fuel pump relay elimination mod too.

Good luck with the project.

On the windows, do none of the window switches roll down either of the windows?

Here's some more pics. When I first got the car, the previous owner had slid into a truck. I did my best to get everything lined back up and the turn signal replaced.

After I spent some time working on it:

The car is also the victim of some pretty unfortunate body rot. I started wire wheeling down all the rusty areas and shooting them with self etching primer in attempts to prevent any further damage. I also started welding up some of the bigger holes in the panels. I'm probably going to patch some of the areas and replace the fenders.

Threw on an HKS BOV I got for cheap. So annoyed I could only source two couplers locally which were different colors, however the goal is to not have a ton of money into this car. (Been building an unlimited time attack car for 3 years)
Image

Started rebuilding the turbo. Turns out this has a 2nd gen twin scroll turbo swap.
Image
Image
Image
Getting the hot side off proved to be a huge pain:
Image
You can see some of the oil getting blown around.
Image
Otherwise it looked to be in fantastic shape.
Image
Image

Decided I was going to make a downpipe and save some money. So made my own flange. So not worth the time it took compared to what's easily available, but it was free.
Image
Image
Good enough

Swooped these stainless lines. Hopefully I can rig something together:

Picked up some gaskets for future work. Noticed I'll need valve seals soon.

Correct. No windows function.

I hate power windows, especially in coupes. I had a RAV4 and towards the end of its life the car seemed to flip a coin to decide whether or not the window would go up or down when you wanted it to.

I was actually surprised the windows worked in my Alltrac.

Well, the car is now on the road. Rebuild the turbo and got it all thrown back together. Spools WAY faster. Ended up taking the HKS bov off due to it causing insane hesitation when it would blow off. However, I was hitting fuel cut at about 12psi so I had to drop the boost down to 10psi on my relief valve. Does this mean I need to do the fuel cut defender mod to run 12psi?

I still haven't had any luck tracking down my window issue either. Cleaned the driver side switch contacts up and nothing. Guess I need to try the passenger side...

The car also had a spare radio in it when I got it. Turns out I had everything to get it hooked up and it still worked. I was super happy about that. I ended up finding a bunch of unplugged harnesses and jumped plugs while installing it though. The mirror and lumbar support were completely unplugged. Lumbar support still does nothing once hooked up and my mirror switch's circuit board is broken :/. So, if anyone has a mirror switch, I'm in the market for one.

Anyone know what these are/go to?

This one is directly behind the glove box.

Image
The plug on top of this one (that you can see the wires going to) was completely disconnected. Anyone know what it does? It is located behind the passenger side strut tower.
