I just about have all the mechanical tasks done. I'm moving onto the quarter and door glass and interior panels. I still have to bleed the brakes. The owner has decided he wants AC. The factory AC box is out just no room for it. It looks like I will have to go with a vintage air set-up. They don't make a direct replacement for the GTO I have to use a universal model. Has anyone ever used the vintage air set up?

The holes used on the pedal for power versus non-power is also a leverage/force thing. Years ago the shop I was at had a manual brake Firebird that wouldn't hardly stop no matter how hard you stood on the brake pedal. Simply switching to the proper mounting hole for manual brakes fixed the issue.

I ordered a ground wire kit for the GTO 3 wires one goes from the head on the passenger side to the firewall the other from the front passenger floor mount to the frame. Where does the third ground wire go?

Once again, from a F-body perspective instead of A-body, but the Gramma car has a third, heavy gauge ground wire running from the passenger side subframe rail to a bellhousing bolt near the oil filter housing

I asked a friend of mine who know 69 GTO's and he said there is a ground strap that goes from the passenger side inner fender to the front of the frame somewhere.

may be different on a 70?
