Hello all, I'm finally going to post about my project. I have been lurking and posting here and there but not much really. So now I have some stuff to show, woohoo! I have an 87 hatch S(dx) which I plan to mod up with a new engine, suspension, and interior components. Right now shes bone stock since I have been just gathering parts to put on.
Plans for the hatch:
--Convert to EFI, put in newly rebuilt motor(hope to get some good numbers)
--Swap in all the SE-i brakes
--Switch over as much interior as possible from the SE-i
--Modify all dash lights to LED's
--Custom shifter gate(currently a WIP)
--CAI with AEM Bypass, and Dryflo
--2 1/4 exhaust all the way back with Magnaflow cat/muffler
--Lower 2 1/4, with ST sway bars and change over as many bushings to poly(ones I can find)
--Get rubber for rims
--Body work/paint(will do as much as I can, otherwise its too the bodyshop, if I can find a decent bodykit I'll slap it on)
--OBD-1 sometime in the next while..
So dirty makes me sad to post.. must get better pics!
I bought a parts car from b8er a while ago it seems now, anyhow its an 89 se-i coupe and has pretty much everything I want from it(score!). The engine was out when I bought it so after I picked it up I sent it off the Mr. R to get the top end pimped, and I recieved the finished job today(trigger for the thread). So yea heres some pics and words to follow:
These first pics are of my shop reno, not about the 3g but I did it FOR my 3g!! Myself and my dad did all the work, with correcting the old structure, wiring, lights, outlets, insulation, poly, osb. Oh and put in a door(we had to cut a bit to fit) because there was just like this old half ass plank thing for a door so I thought to beef it up for protection.
Moving everything away from the walls.
Truss reinforce + leveling.
New door + knob and lock, chopped to fit.
Wall's stripped of old junk.
First section of insulation.
