hey bought a 91 gts over the winter for $700 runs pretty good.
currently working on the exterior, heres some pics of where im at.
it was previously green, it will soon be two-tone blue and black


heres where i need help/have questions

first off, the power antenna.
The car had no cd player when i got it. sorted out all the wires, and got a pioneer hooked up. now when i turn on the deck the power antenna just shoots right out, cant get it to stay in.

second, tail lights.
will 6th gen tail lights fit the 5th gen? they look similar, but my car is in my parents garage and im at my apartment, so i have no way to compare.

lastly, if anyone is parting out a car i need a few random parts. let me know.

well the power antenna means somewhere its not attached properly, are you talking about the antenna core (the piece that actually rises) or the whole assembly? As for the tail lights, no 6th gen wont fit unless you mold them. What kind of parts are you needing? Im not parting mine out but I have a few random parts

If you keep it clean, that car will look sweet.

how much molding? i mean im already molding shit already so if it isnt gonna take a whole lot i might do that since there seem to be more options for the 6th gens.

the pop up part just shoots out the tail that the motor uses as well

parts i need: (off the top of my head)

passenger door is missing the part that holds the window tight (missing 1)

trim that goes around radio

driver taillight if i decide not to go 6th

both door subs, altho i may just go with the kicker 8" midbass subs

oh and i thought of another thing, the power steering hose pictured has a leak any insight on how to remove and replace it?

annnd here is another pic of my car that i found

why exactly are you in need of the tail light? I have a harness if you're having an electrical issue, but dont have a good tail light

The sixth-gen lights will not fit on a fifth-gen without fairly significant modification. I might suggest looking up a set of 92-93 lenses, which had a partial smoke and are considered by many to be an aesthetic upgrade.

As for the power antenna, if I understand what your broken grammar is trying to convey: the power antenna extends whenever the deck is powered, instead of only extending when the radio is used. That's a wiring issue, and I'm guessing what's happened is the leads from the deck are incorret. There should be a remote power-on lead, which is meant to run to a separate amp or signal processor and activate that piece of equipment whenever the deck is turned on. If that lead is connected to the power antenna instead of the power-antenna lead, the antenna will activate as soon as the deck powers up.

Likely colours: blue-white for the remote power-on lead, blue for the antenna lead. Alternately, check your deck's manual for the correct wiring codes.
