Today I showed the kid how to refinish the wheel. I got these wheels as a payoff for money owed to me back in the day. I never really paid attention to it since back then I was running mini lites 13x8s But until recently I tried to buy a set of tires for it. Well try and fine 215/50/13 the only ones I found were slicks. And so dam expensive. So with that comes the Enkei 15x7 rims. Its a lot easier to find tires for it. But it wasn't exactly in a nice condition. So we decided to refinish it andbringitback to its glory.
So we had nothing better to do the day after Christmass. We found an add on CL about some seats. We head over to Fairfield at Extreme Autosport. We got a deal on a pair of Replica Brides seats. Now before anyone ask why Replica, cause Im not about to spend retail on a real Bride. When this car will be beat up on once done. The Lady was very helpful and transaction went smooth. They have a nice selections of JDM goodies. Read more to see the install.
The reason why Matt hasn't done any update and or been working on his AE86 is that we moved to a new shop. No longer working at the side of the house. We now have a small but decent shop. We just need to organized our stuff and get some cool new toys for the shop. Look forward for more update on the AE86 and some other cars now that we actually have a place to work on cars. Stay tuned.
Almost ready to run! So Matt got some more work done. He buttoned up the engine bay, Hooked up the gas lines, brake lines. He hit a little snag getting the fuel pump to turn on. But after swapping the fuse box under the hood, he got it working. I did had to help him diagnose the problem. Just too bad the timing belt cover is missing. So if anyone has an extra one they would like to part with please contact us. I think the next time he works on the car it will be ready to start. Hopefully no issues comes up. Once the car is running Matt plans on doing body work and getting it ready for paint. But at the same time school just started and I think we need to find a shop space to be able to do more work since winter is just around the corner.
Like all SR-5 to GTS swap. We recommend a good parts car. We happened to find one for a decent price on CL.
OK, once you have a good donor car. You will need to swap everything over. We started out by stripping the car so all the wiring harness can be swapped over. Some will say that you only need to cut and add wires. But with a good donor car, alot of free time Something a 13y/o has alot of. We recommend just doing it right the first time.
