Victor is a cat that has never finished a drift project, this is my inspiration to get this thing road worthy
GET **** DONE
thank you to coltan for swinging by and helping me get a short plan together for the next few weeks to get the car ready for spring time
so the sort term plan with the car is the rear end is all unbolted (Loose) install the panhard bar and the 4link bars
next install coilovers for the front
relocate the battery to the trunk ( its half done already
start with the fule system
even had some help from Levi
thanks for filling it up Levi
Total fanboy, i dont care...
Bill stopped by to help me get the bay prepped, and get some of the old **** out of there ( Old 4a harness and other ****) it is making lots of progress, tomorrow i have a few things to finish cleaning, then bolt up the 5 link in the rear
a goodish photo of the front
i also took a trip to the hood to pick up T3 coilovers from Rio
tonight me and bill cleaned up the rest of the front end, bolted together the 5 link, there was a lag bolt holding one of the links on
More poor temporary fixes...
now that is its all bolted together (not the panhard bar)
i also installed the T3 coilovers
rad steering knuckle ( T3 makes some that will get me more "Lock")
its going to be nice the next few day so i am going to get the bay done before the motor gets here!
tomorrows plan is to get the rest of the bay primed and start painting after work on Wednesday!!!
i used some montana gold!!!
other than that i have installed front coilovers and i will get the break and clutch stuff back in this week if i find time. i have been redoing work for my portfolio
i still have green paint in my nose...

Melissa and i did a bunch of work on the 86 in the garage today! we went to harbor freight and bought some tools and later decided that we should get a space heater to work in the garage, not bad it was about 50* in there with the heater on.
here is the motor that i got along with the SR downpipe
taking the old turbo and manifold apart
SR T25 Turbo
Test fitting and the manifold is for a top mounted turbo for a MR car, so i need a new manifold
