Defining what your project IS would be a start.

We will need some more info on the issues you are having in order to help you resolve them. Start with that, the trim level, mileage, recent repairs etc and we can go from there.

You're still missing the belts of course and it appears as if you have a banjo bolt and crush washers missing from the fuel rail. I can see the fuel line hanging down.Very cool to see that it originally had manual steering. You don't see that terribly often! Here's one picture form my 88 GXL. I can take and post more if you would like to use them for reference for what you need.

Was looking through some other pics I had and here are some of my old 88 SE that I rebuilt. They might help as well:
