So I have been quite busy with the daughter and motorcycle projects along with the high work load at work but started to get some progress on the MK2.
It dont look like much but I got to rebuild an AE86 LSD with a Wier performance kit and also set up a 3.7 Diff. Rebuild all the rear brakes and cleaned up the AL drums. Installed the rear sway bar and also an NOS rear brake hose. The kicker is the NOS set of KONI rear shocks. They are the correct part number for this car. Wherever I can, I use NOS stuff regardless of how rare they are.
This car will be a daily driver and also able to cruize to long distance locations with a breeze so I decided to set up some sound control... Went ahead and added some sound deadning material on the floor
I also added some sound and heat insulation to the rear seat area. This should control some of the exhaust sound that may leak through the trunk.
What you dont see is the extra material that I added to the firewall. It was all a real BITCH to get installed but most of this is done for now.
Just because I can, I also added sound deadning material under the hood. This should keep the turbocharged 18RG in check with excess sound...
I also added sound deadning material on the trunk. This may seem like a lot of work but because this will be a daily driver for me, I want to be in a comfortable old car and not sound like a clunker... this is also part of what a MK2 is all about. One of the advertisments was about how quiet the engine was you cant even hear it...
All in all, its all good to get back in the garage and make some progress with this car. I have to set up the power windows and door locks along with the audio system so that will take some additional time... will update as things move forward!
