Go down to your local auto supply and buy a 12volt tester( about $10.00, You are looking to make sure you have + and - current. I know it is frustrating,but, no spark starts at the positive supply into your box or distributor, or resistor.
Follow the current. No current check your GROUNDS, most of the time, a bad ground will be the culprit. Fabrication is much more complicated, you can do it.

MSD instructions tested. No spark. I'm still a little uncertain because I really don't even understand what I'm doing with the electrics. Big Grin
Green and purple wire attached with the jumper and tested also grounding the white wire. No spark from the coil. How do I know is the ignition box or the coil faulty or do I have to buy both to test the system?
Love that front hood work! Nicely done. I might have to do the same thing myself.

And, check all the connections on the electrics (12V and ignition leads). As the other guys have said it's probably as simple as that. Hopefully its a simple fix.

Yeah, I think so too. The engine has run before so it couldn't be terribly big issue, because the car have been in the garage the whole time.


Thank you all for the positive comments. Hopefully I get the engine running and the car to the paintshop soon so I can really start getting all the pieces together.
A few photos about what's going on at the garage.

Installed those GT5 grills (yeah, the car is full of dirty fingerprints..)





Package from Hall Pantera..



I made the front quarterwindows from polycarbonate. Easier to install the sidemirrors which will be mounted to the glass and bolted through.



The rear declid still needs to be assigned properly in it's place. Installed the new molding to the hole.



Then couple pics of the sidescoops. They are now just put in their place, not attached.







And the great wide ass. I need to take the car out of the garage before the winter to take better pics.

I must disagree, because there is still a whole lot money spending ahead Big Grin

Biggest parts on to-buy-list:
- Willwood big brake kit
- Porsche 997 GT3 bucket seats (which I don't know will they fit)
- custom gauges propably from Speedhut
So well.. Some things have happened and some have been delayed.
At least the engine is running. The ignition issue was nothing but a loose wire.
Next thing is to clean the carburetor and the fueltank properly.

Short video of the startup.
More pics coming soon. Trying to make some progress with the interior during the holidays.
