Anyone have any ideas? My initial idea was on the spoiler face directly over the right rear back-up lens... but I'm open to suggestions


That's the perfect location. But that nasty spoiler would be in the way. So you should just remove it and send it to me and then you'll be all set to mount the emblem. :D

But really, I'd go for underneath the tail lamps. I don't think it would look great on the spoiler.

But I suppose you could mount with some foam tape and if you don't like it, move it. Not too permanent. Then when you're happy, permanently affix it.

Where to find vintage Hella driving lamps??


This is a great place to find old school parts, along with Hella lights... I used them to buy a front spoiler/air dam for my 85 Accord LX sedan. They're very nice people and quick shippers.

Yes, pic 1 or 2 is a good location.

Nice work, love the front and rear spoilers... all it needs is a few inches of drop, and she's good to go. 8)

The lower control arms are in and the car is now aligned.........


Image

and now, so is the steering on my car :twisted:

thank you Blake... and Garth


not only is the front end now set up and aligned, but she is now shod with a fresh set of 195/50/15 General Exclaims.



I know its tough to pull your eyes away :shock: , but there is MORE!


Portland is a wonderful town, winters are usually mild as far as temps, but it can get drippy, drizzly, spitty at times. Having wipers is not enough, a windshield washer sytem is needed, and is now installed.

Image


The original was located in the vicinity of the current airbox, and so another part, and location was needed. The "new" part is from a 1988 Mazda B2200 pick up truck, I used the tank, and most of the original bracket. I made a harness adapter, wired in the Mazda's original plug, and lengthened the new harness. The washer plumbing, on the other hand, was simple - all it required was routing, no cutting or splicing was needed!


Now, remember that nice Nardi wheel...... :wink:

Image


its getting closer....... :D

Although the headlamps have been operational since Mark wired the car, the fog lamps being fully operational is new. If you remember David dropped one and I had to go to Europe to find replacements. The fog lamps are running Osram 100watt H1 bulbs, The headlamps are nothing special, Sylvania 6054 halogens... for now. I currently have one Cibie, I'm on the hunt for a second one

Another step....

Image


Driver side Recaro got mounted today.... Jesse and I spent the better part of the day getting an AE86 floor mount to fit an AE71 floor. They are VERY similar, the main difference we were able to find is bolt center across the front on the AE86 seat base is 16", while the AE71 spread is 16 3/8".... or enough of a difference for it to take us 4+ hours (that includes a trip to get the hardware) So we only got the driver side in today.

Driving impressions - utterly amazing how much difference a Recaro seat is over a stock AE71 seat. The Recaro makes it worthwhile to drive

Awesome, awesome car man, great work too.

I have a FOHA spoiler on my RX-7 as well. It's a nice touch.

My cars is 1983... from the research I've found, 1982 and 1983 use the same type strut mount as the AE86. earlier cars use a different strut mount.

One more thing... there is 12mm MORE room between the strut towers on an E7, then an AE86.
