got the car.

i tried some wetsanding on the DR side headlight. looks like the car just needs a good wetsand and clear coat. the rust in the rear will be fixed with either A) flares or B) wide body.

stay tuned Smile

well after some work, paint is starting to shape up.

not too much of an exciting update, but the car is deffinately looking better. hood still needs a good buffing and wax.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_8257

in the foreground you can see the panel that isnt sanded or anything. behind it you can see the improved shinier panel. o0o0o0o0o shiny Very Happy

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_8256

tomorrow i will be hitting the trim, mirrors and wipers with satin black.

dont get too excited, im just test fitting some things (note backwards wheel laugh we grabbed it off his right side)

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_8267b
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_8270b

it will fit better when i slam it (neg camber)

ive placed some orders on parts and have a bunch of little stuff comming.

- italian calfskin shift boot -

i got the black stiched one
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) LSB1


- Shifter Base Bushings -

This kit replaces the squishy rubber bushings that support the shifter base. The bushings are CNC precision turned from 6061-T6 bar stock, de-burred, then Alodine coated to give them a nice corrosion resistant gold finish.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) Basebush



- shift cable bushings -

This shifter bushing kit will help to tighten the feel of your shifter by eliminating the stock rubber bushing in the shift cable. After a few years, the stock rubber and metal sleeved bushing will wear and deteriorate, making the shifter feel less precise and slowing down your shifting times! These CNC machined solid brass bushings give you back your shifter feel, and really connect you to the transmission.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) Bushings2



- c-pillar trim -

Replacement trim for the three black plastic parts around the rear window

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) 12311975



- gauge cluster -

speedo didnt work, so i had no idea how fast i am going

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) 6dc6_1



- 93+ MR2 Turbo Brake MC -

MK1 and 91-92 master cylinders are 7/8" while the 93+ BMC is 15/16." i will have to bend the brake lines to fit, but other than that its a direct bolt up Smile

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) _amccomparsion
mk1 on left, mk2 kouki bmc on the right



well next packages arrived.

heres how they fit. with a little persuasion, they should mold up nicely. i could only tape it to a certain extent. they do bend more to fit the arch.

(sorry for the crappy looking pictures. i have no photoshop to make them pretty)
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_8500

gets rid of just about all the rust on the drivers (left) side
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_8505

not quite on the passenger's (right) side
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_8506


im thinking ill probably switch the rears because i think i had them mixed up. still need a tiny bit of body work to make it look nice. nothing as big as i needed before though Very Happy

next exterior mod is a rear valance (besides wheels of course)

i also picked up a new hood, engine cover, and truck lid (pictured) that look much better then the old stuff Smile


Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) CRW_9449

wheels are on the way. and coilovers are next.

oh, and i want opinions on this. my 1/4 panels look like this. they are chipping and faded. basically they look like junk. should i satin black my car? i painted some trim and my mirrors satin black and i think it would look good keeping the flares riveted on and leaving the flares gloss. all business type look. opinions?

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) CRW_9457

i managed to find a pair of Kosei K1 Racing in 15x8 +12. unfortuneatly after i just bought my tires today, i need something still wider and a lower offset. but these will do for now until i get a whole set. the tires are 205/50-15. before you question that i couldve put 225's on it, i like my streached tires. so :p

heres pics

some spare Rays lugs i had sitting around Wink
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9959copy

the flares still need some trimming and other shit. so w/e. good enough for now

T-top seal install!

Tools:

putty knife
rachet
10mm deep well
17mm
philips screwdriver
flathead screw driver (optional)
needle nose pliers (optional, but recommended)


Supplies:

new t-top seals (kbox.ca)
new off center t-top guides (kbox.ca)
waterproof sealant (auto parts store)


heres the sealant i used.
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9993copy

and showing the new guides vs the oem ones
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9997copy

ok, step one. take off the t-tops and put them out of the way. i chose behind the seats, where i normally put them.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9982copy


next step. take off the guide garnish pieces. theres a total of 4 of these, 2 per t-top and 2 screws each, amking a total of 8 screws

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9983copy


from here, remove the inside trim "U"

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9984copy


now, remove the a-pillar plastic interior trim. the passenger side requires the "oh shit handle" to be removes. this can be done by sliding the rubber end sleeves over the handle and removing the two screws.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9999copy


i found some rust Sad

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0001copy


next, loosen the bolts that are circled. there are also 2 on the inside of each t-top that you can see from the top. the circled ones are underneath. the fronts can be seen easily after the a-pillar trim is removed (snaps out) and the rear requires the 1/4 window trim to be removed. sorry i dont have pics of the window trim removal. its pretty easy to see where the screws are

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9987copy


next, since the seal isnt bolted in, you need to remove the small plastic clip things seen here

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9985copy

and here (pic from install)
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0008copy
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0007copy


next, peal back the old trim

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9986copy
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9990copy


and its off! next, unscrew the rails (3 screws each)
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9994copy
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9992copy

rust on passenger front rail Sad this needed extra attention (sand, primer, paint)

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0004copy


now we install!

install is reverse of removal (like everything else in this world)

so, apply your sealant to you cleaned rails. yes, clean off the old gunk.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0005copy

that should do. screw them down.

next, apply more sealant to the tops of them and all around the top area and going down where the new seal covers. put the center screws in on the new top and screw them down. screw the other two by the door down as well. and fasten the little back pins at the end of the new seals.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0008copy
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0007copy


now, take your putty knife and work the seals into the rails to keep them secured to the rails, and suck in your sealant you put in the rails aswell.

i also applied extra sealant after that right above the rear view mirror area on top next to the seals. this was a problem area for me and i want to make sure NO water gets in or trapped under anything. so dab that in real well.

install the inner "U" trim

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9998copy



next, put the new guides in. they snap right in. i put them to be low and in. you'll understand when you go to install them what i mean. this created a nice snug fit. MUCH better than before.

install all your interior trim and put the guide garnishes back on.


heres an oem vs new trim

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_9996copy



then, install your t-tops to apply pressure to the the sealant so it sticks when it dries.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0006copy



boo blown HG. :thumbdn:

probably going to pick up a small port head and put my large port cams in it for some cheap power gains.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0764Medium
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0763Medium



the wait is over. i still have to adjust them, but they need to settle first.

teaser!
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0778

out of the box and ready to install
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0780

makes it look fancy. i have no idea what this means, but im sure it's in there to make them look legit.
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0782

final product
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0787


yes i went with D2, but i must say, i am impressed with the initial quality. very light weight (aluminum?) and they came with new adjustable pillow ball front sway bar links.

so this will do for now. i plan to take it a half inch or lower in the front though. so w/e. i have a HG and shit to fix. im not concerned about the height now. plus ill end up getting corner weighted and aligned. so suck it up.

oh, and rear wheels will go on soon. dont worry about the weak ass rear

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0789b

the result of taking a shitty pic (thats what i get for not grabbing a tripod...) and attempting to make it look better. :ko: snapped it on my way out the door around 6:15p. but atleast you can see how it looks in daylight. as i said, it needs to go lower and i need more wheels

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0805b


getting there.

pics. shes all up and running. small leak from a water neck, but that will be done tomorrow morning

o-rings i replaced (bottom right is a new one) they were leaking pretty bad for cylinder 2. so i replaced them all
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0843b

money shot
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0852b

another money shot :p
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0865b

some pics from after i washed her today. deffinately brought back that shine she has been longing for. 4hrs of washing, waxing, more waxing, and cleaning windows. never got around to the interior. might do that a little tomorrow. we'll see. used some turtle wax 'scratch and swirl remover' to cut the color back a bit (one stage OEM paint) and then waxed it. both with an orbital buffer i got at sears earlier this year for $25 Smile looks great. i cant stop looking at the mr2

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0892b

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0886b

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_0879b

(last 2 have unaltered color, first was messed with a bit)


i decided my car wasnt low enough, so i lowered it a bit more today and adjusted my front (and only) sway bar. i now rub (flares) and scrape (lip). life is good once again :classic:

and a preveiw of what's to come Wink
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1104b

also got a free cusco shift knob from a friend

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1083b

it fits well Smile
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1084b

these'll be here in time for christmas hopefully Very Happy

intercooler, piping, and shroud
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) Img4024mb6


distributor, dust boot + wires (will be going through a rebuild before going on the motor)
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) Img4149eq9


and today i just bought (2) 24"x10ft rolls of this for my hood Wink

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) 0b_1

my good friend stopped by today and brought me gifts. they are police flasher units. so my headlights, reverse lights, and tails will all flash just like police cars. should look pretty cool for track use. something no one around here has on their drift cars also

pic (post-it note on the backside telling me what wire goes to what. looks super simple to hook up.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1184

gze stuff (IC, dizzy, etc)

vinyl going on monday or tuesday.

the hood should be done over the weekend. i brought it inside so it can warm up for when i apply the vinyl. i'll probably do it in the shower laugh


fixed her yesterday and today, and now shes all clean.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1222b

coolant froze a little, but by the looks of everything, nothing was harmed. added some more antifreeze. thats what i get for running mostly water... scared the shit out of me hoping i didnt crack my block or lift the head off the motor since water expands when cold. (stupid exception to the rule of physics)

i thank the ARP head studs for preventing that.


sneak peek.

it's nowhere near perfect, but its a good 10 footer laugh i still have to fix some air bubbles and patch up that one exposed piece of black (it just wasnt working last night, so i cut it out.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1233b


here ya go. not the best picture by any means, but at least you can see what it looks like on the car. the red is darker than the paint, but i knew that going in. i actually really like how it turned out overall. all the things i werent happy with when i applied it seemed to mostly disappear once on the car.

of course, i still need to see it during daylight though Razz

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1268


new water pump (blue rtv gasket, as i wwas told they seal better than paper gaskets)

for now, my car is a plow.

and frozen solid.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) 8d5b1fc7

i cleaned out the front air dam (it was a nice block of ice) and now my radiator gets some flow. its running much cooler

on another note, picked this up today from Rob at Touge Factory
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) 82de8f4e

and got some tires. thanks to Mark at One 6

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) CRW_1592

yesterday i cleaned up the engine bay and transmission. i'm currently waiting on the flywheel to be resurfaced. should be done today. from there, i can drop everything in Very Happy (or you know, drop the car on the motor)

oh, and heres the 21 year old flywheel. it looks slightly used.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) CRW_1613

i always fear this thing falling on me. then it not quite killing me, but leaving me to suffer for 5 hours until someone discovers me. from then on, i can never function the same. (can you tell i think too much while under a car?)

anyway, pics from yesterday

it looks better in real life i swear (and that red isn so bright :ko: ) i gave up cleaning that trans. it's clean enough to know where a leak is coming from if i so happen to get one.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1618

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1620

realized i still need to buy belts, oil, oil filter, fuel filter, and an air filter.

ok, woke up about an hour or two late today. so i was only able to pick up some supplies before i had to go to school then leave for work soon.

first off, got some oil and the SC belt. i need to measure the ALT belt because i deleted the AC, or figure something out...

then i also picked up a cheapy intake cone filter. which will get rid of the stupid 'lets route the intake across the ingine bay, to the back of the car, and back around to the otherside' deal. (horrible restriction)

and here's the flywheel after resurfacing Very Happy

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) CRW_1628

oh, and the clutch feels nice Smile

oh, and what it looked like before me working on it today. (completed pics later)
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1771

Aw! look at the baby oil filter.
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1781

ok, its only firing on 2/4. just ordered some parts for the distributor (cap, rotor, seal kit w/ a bearing)

recent shot of bay:

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1855

rebuilt distributor (found some oil inside) and i still have that problem.

i ohm'd the plug wires and they are ok. i also tried swapping plug wires just for shits and giggles, still only firing on 2/4.

next, i checked resistance in the injectors. they all come to about 3ohms (spec for gze is 2.9ohm). i also noticced a small fuel leak at the FPR where the return hose connects. i doubt this is THE problem, but i need to fix this anyway.

i'm not looking forward to tracing wires, but im afraid it may come down to that. i will however check the injector resistor as well as all my relays (to cover bases)
[SIZE="7"]yes!!!!!!!![/SIZE]

two injector wires that are supposed to splice together are not spliced with the one wire that comes from that splice and goes to the ecu.

FUCK YES.

soldering time

the red/blk splice coming from the injectors going to the ECU.
Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) 4agzefuel

i started by checking to see if power went to the ECU at the pin, with the ignition 'on' with my multimeter. no power. BUT, the other 2 injectors were sending power.

so, i knew where to look. i riped apart my NA harness to see how far down to look (since the NA harness is apart anyway) and found it after taking abour 8" of loom off.

fuck yes. time to fix it

heres the connection that sucked.

Project AW11 (56k should start on page 2) IMG_1862

and video of it idling



PS: anyone want to donate a video camera to me?



and thats it until today. still need to set timing, flush coolant better, and repair exhaust (leaks so bad). maybe i'll get around to installing a fuel filter as well.

tomorrow, im going to find someone to weld up a flex pipe for me as well as a hole in my muffler. shouldnt cost too much.

and i found a fuel leak at the injector. it sprays a mist when backing off throttle where the injector seals with the head.

more gaskets get replaced...


Also decided to replace my fuel line from the filter to the rail. using a -6AN with earl's fittings.

the soft line from the hardline to the filter will be replaced in the future. it requires a custom fitting that i dont have time for.

One of the best built threads EVARRRRR!
Everyone should have such pretty pics and detailed walkthroughs,
and perfect grammar.

I didnt realize just HOW much you have done to the car since i dont really read shit on CFR anymore. Glad you put it on here.

Great job so far. I wanna drive this car!

heh, thanks. i still have a lot more i want/need to do to the car to get it where i want.

i really want to make underbody panels to smooth out the airflow. i mean, it's pretty flat as is, but it could afford to be flatter. it also would be nice to have once giant skid plate. maybe i'll get that done eventually.

i also just found out yesterday that my tie rod ends are the same as a 85 corolla gts/sr5. so i think i may beable to use some aftermarket ones to correct my bumpsteer. then i just need to find someone to make me some RCA's.

thanks nackers. like i said earlier, it is still one tooth off on the exhaust cam. so it runs, i just dont have much power until up high. sucks. i need to fix that. makes me wish i had a ae86 with the timing stuff more accessable. ermm

i wouldnt say "ever", my car is far from that pedestal. i just snap pics sometimes when i work on it. i think my t-top seal install was pretty throrough though Razz

yeah, i ended up doing a lot of little things to the car. shifter bushings, seals, etc etc etc. i still need to get my hands on the ES master bushing kit and go to town one weekend. should really refresh the 21yo deteriorated bushings.

in the future i really want to pick up a 6 speed trans from a blacktop 20v. they run about $5-700 though Sad im not sure about LSD options on them either. so i may be forced to stick with my trusty C52 trans so i can get a TRD 1.5way or cusco/kaaz/whatever.

the stock NA line didnt seal right with the SC fuel rail. so instead of trying to source a line, i just went this route.

i'll be replacing the rubber line to the filter at a later date (when i get the fitting i need, it's an odd angle)

alright. just figure out what the thread diameter and pitch is for where you need each hose to go to.

oh, and i figured out exactly what -6AN means. like, the where they get the 6 from. the number is always a number of 16ths. so my hose is 6/16ths, or 3/8ths ID.

also when researching them earlier in the week, i found out AN = Army/Navy - where they were engineered. no idea what the dash (-) is for
