    digging the resto-mod approach. Looks great!
    If there's one thing I've learned from the first two thirds of the MC Hammer Biography, it's that money never runs out.

    Only used foam pads on this, I've got a wide spread of densities so I play around with them til I find the right one.
    The red on the 86 is single stage, not much paint to deal with so you must be careful

    This is killer, taking the complete opposite approach of 99% of 86 owners.

    Slowly been plugging away at everything..

    Everything has been powdercoated:



    Oil cooler lines and plated hood latch:



    Twisted/completely mangled the fuel line to the fuel filter:





    Timing belt, water pump, pulleys and alternator done:



    Lost this, ran to the stearship and had a new one $43 later...



    Timing covers:



    Fuel Injectors:





    Header assembled outside the car, tried installing it when on the car and the springs are in real awkward places



    And where it sits now basically:



    Done a few more things, but forgot to take pictures, so that's for the next post.

    Also have Techno Spirit motor and trans mounts on order from my broker in Japan

    Progress over the weekend in the form of an almost assembled LSD.



    Drive:



    Coast:



    Pinion:



    If you have opinions on my pinion (paint pattern) I'll gladly take them as this is my first time messing with gears

    Also...

    Ordered the cheapest set of black silicone hoses I could find on ebay from China of course..
    And I seem to have been sent Samco hoses lol
    No mention of this on ebay as what I really wanted was a plain black hose with no logo.
    But I guess these will do:

    Quick picture from 10 minutes in the garage, too cold to do anything tonight but I threw the hoses on to give a look of where I am at now.

    really really clean job! have you used a solid crush sleeve to rebuilt your diff? And your paint print looks perfect to me.
