    There's a few guys making repo flares out there, can usually find them on eBay. Otherwise most of the popular jdm brands are hard to find over here as far as I know... P.s if you find other flares maybe we can work something out on the current ones hehe

    Screw the VSV. Chuck it and plug off the port on the intake. It probably hasn't been doing anything for a long time.

    The flares are a bit different but who cares, keep them on there. Someone has gone to a lot of effort, put some wide ass wheels on there and see how it looks. If you don't like it you can always switch to FRP over fenders. Measure the distance between the centre of the hub directly outwards and hang a ruler down from the edge of the flare. You can calculate what width wheel and what offset to run with this, and then get something to fit flush and get rid of the gap. Skip the VSV it's not a big deal. Guys usually just toss em like clay said.

    Nice start to your 86!

    Those are CBY flares molded on, LOL!
    I have those flares on my 86, riveted on.
    Want a pair of cheap wheels (15x10 -25) to fill the rear arches?
    Send me a PM, I can probably help you out.

    Here is my 86 with 8.5J -22 (205/50, NCRCA) and 10J -28 (225/50) for reference.

    Got the header this week end. Now I am waiting on my stainless tubing to finish the exhaust. That might take a wile to come in tough. I started to test fit the recaro seat. I am going to make some rails for it this week.

    If you got a kit off trigger, I wish you luck. The fitment is horrible

    no I dint get if off trigger, but any kit you are going to get will need a bit of love to get it to fit like a glove.
    I kept every part I took off the car. One day I might want to put it all back to stock.

    Friday night update:
    seat is in and I test fitted the skirts they wont be so bad going to do some trimming tomorrow. Hope fully I can get the fitment right so I can paint theme this week. I think it makes the flares look better.

    I removed the doors today to make some room to work. I got the skirts to fit nice, I started to fiberglass the holes of the previous owner. I hope I can finish theme up tomorrow so I can start on the bumper,

    I am trying to fit the bumper, I got with the skirts on with no prob. I am having problems in finding out witch brackets I need. I have been searching all day now and all I can find is either koukie or zenkie, but witch ones I don't know. a lot of guys are saying tie wrap, but to what. I have taken off all the gts bumper and there is nothing to tie wrape it to. so if anyone know what I need to mount it would be great,

    Most aftermarket kits will work with kouki brackets. But if you have a FG copy, you may need to get creative.

    Zip-ties are mostly used where the bumper meets the fender and you have to drill holes in both. You also would need to make or buy a "Bomber" bar which gets mounted to the frame, in place of the oem brackets.
