I got this a few weeks ago i traded my ae86 for this which had no title and got this which has a clean title :D and a straight frame and fairly straight body.

the body is not perfect yet but i just pulled it in to the shop today to get the body straight then paint it so i thought i would put the photos up of how it was when i got it these are pics from the previous owner. and i will update the thread as i do the work to it. :thumbup:

few stats for this thing as it stands now and the future plans :D

right now:
- ls swap with gsr trans
- rota sub zeros with nitto neo-gen tires
- H&R Race Spring
- Eibach Pro Dampers
- Enjo Polyurethane swap mounts
- Speed Innovations ECU
- JDM EG6 Guage Cluster

things to come:
- new white paint
- put my volks on it and refinish them also
- put the b16b in it
- put the teins on it
- hondata s200
- hks hi-power muffler on 2.5" pipe
- blue racing seats of some kind
- and i am maybe building a roll cage for it in class :D

here are the old pics now sorry for the long post. also most all of this will be done in time for IA in july









lol don't ask about the sticker in this one lol also i already fixed the hole in the tail gate today. :thumbup:






also like all ways fell free to leave some coments and let me know what you think just don't be a major D*ck comments positive and negative are cool. :thumbup:

few things i've fixed and a few problems i've found.

the hole in the tail gate is no more. :D and the drifting sticker.


just about every roof support is bent down and separated from the roof looks like some one ran up the hood and over the roof. :?


fenders off so i can hammer and dolly the dents out.


also this one is kinda a question there is a hole cut in the bumper from where they had a muffler at one time i guess my question is would that be too much of an angle for a HKS muffler? i am gona make the pipe and run it out there maybe but i almost thing it would be angled way to much just let me know what you guys think.


i will be posting more pics around friday with all the body work done and all the spots that i had to fill primed and hopefully i will have it painted in about 2 more weeks. :thumbup:

wire tuck started

here are some more pics of this project i have a friend helping with the body work at school so i have started wire tucking the car i wasn't going to do this until i started swaping the engine but i figured that this would be as good a time as any.

so far i have most of the side harnesses out and the passenger side is tucked as of today and the driver side will be on monday.

here are some pics of the progress so far.













that is all for now and when this part of the tuck is done it will be cleaner and i am gona tuck the engine sub harness when i swap my b16b into the car. :thumbup:

let me know what you guys think of the progress so far.

Chase does the brake line tucks ;) I think he sells a kit but I'm not for sure. His prices are insanely good, too.

www.chasebaysonline.com

$250 all OEM, the A.N. stuff will run you more.
I think i will do the brake line tuck when i put my roll cage and yeah the prices on all chasebays stuff is really good, but most of this tuck is going to be D.I.Y. just for the experience. so next time i do this i will be a lot fast. :thumbup:

i hear that it is a lot of work, and also since you still aren't sure if you even want to keep the em1 why tuck it..... :p

but it would look really good on the em1 :thumbup:
