Red face Help!!

I recently bought a 1980 TA as a project car. I got the engine and tranny in and running... finally. But I realized nothing ( accessories) is working. After a little inspection I found there to be no fuses in the fusebox. Here is my problem, Im not sure what fuse goes where due to the fact everything is rubbed off. So If anyone has any pics of the box, or even if they could just get me and order I would be greatly appreciative.

Thank You in advance,

Check your local library or auto parts store for a chilton for your year of firebird... They usually have a picture of the fuse box and what each fuse is for and its amp rating.

Or just replace the ones that are burn't with the same amp fuse as the one you pulled.
I can't read my fuse box either, I just replace as they blow.

Oh yea you said you don't have any, that's bad.
OK go to a junkyard and find a car like yours and check out the fuse box. take a pic, or draw it on some paper.

Another way is, put 10 amps in everthing. As they blow, go up 5 amps. If they don't blow.....great.

If there is a dead short, they will blow right away anyways.

Fuse Box

I'd do this the right way myself. Wiring is the least understood, most neglected, and most dangerous part of your car. Almost nothing will start a fire quicker than the electrical wiring.

Actually new fuse boxes aren't that expensive, and if it's the original wiring, it may be time to replace it anyway. Especially if it's been "modified" by previous owners.

Almost nothing will cause you more troubles than bad wiring and/or connections. Why not do this job right and feel confident in the future. Since you are in there working to make this car street worthy again, now is the right time to do it right.
