Back in the day when I skated, I mainly skated Santa Cruz boards(Roskopp). When my boy Kaze got into skating he also liked their boards, but eventually became a hardcore Mike Vallely fan. Now he skates Vallely's Elephant boards and wears Santa Cruz clothes, hahaha. I love his old school style, matches our car. I always got my old Vision Ken Park mini in the trunk.

Might be throwing on the overfenders this week. I might be selling my rear Origin overfenders soon(pictured)

My older son Noah is finally coming around. Always said he wasn't into cars, then about two years ago he said he only liked American mucle cars, now he is wanting an 86. I took this pic yesterday while my younger son was skateboarding at Foster skatepark. He helped me install the cd player. Good to have another carguy in the family.

Sorry haven't posted an update in awhile. My son was visiting for the Summer and my wife took off on me, so **** trying to show my kids a good time while dealing with bullshit drama. I will be back working on my car hardcore next week. but until then, we recently had an annual 86 meet here in Okinawa, Japan. I usually don't go to this kind of stuff, but my sons wanted to see the cars, so I went and entered my car. She loved the attention. Here are the pics

Here is a pic from the meet of some of the owners. I'm in the back right with my two sons
Image

Here is a pic of my baby before the meet, stopped to get some ice cream and cigarettes
Image

Early in the evening there were only a few, but more and more came. mine is in the center
Image

Image

Image

Image

Easily my favorite 86 out there this night. It was bone stock and just had a full restore down to the nuts n bolts, looked brand new. I would love to beat the **** out of this girl, hahaha

Pulled hard in first and second, at 7k threw it in third and rpm drops to 4k and holds steady. So i cruise to the closest conbini and pop the hood thinking my throttle was stuck or throttle cable was binding. Turns out my damned throttlebody exploded, haha. That is a first for me. Took a couple of minutes to get her temp fixed and i was on my way.

Image

Now worried that she swallowed that little screw. Good excuse for a motor swap. Goin Blacktop 20v 4AG. If a track opens up, I'll swap in the turbo motor

Thanks, yeah my son Kaze went back to the states for the school year. I miss the hell outta him. I'm stoked he got to attend the 86 meet. He and my oldest son Noah were goin nuts checking out the cars. And the cars parked around the meet. Kaze said he loves the 86's, but then he saw the 27 and flipped out. I have like 30 pictures of it cause he went trigger happy with the camera.

I've never had a throttle come apart like that. I was on my way to work and the main highway was clear. I was cruising along when this guy in a Toyota Sai flies by. At the next light we are both stopped and he revved his little hybrid motor at me, when the light turned green we took off and I hit first hard, second hard, then when I threw it into third and hit the gas the RPM's dropped to a steady 4k and after a few seconds the dude in the Sai flew by me and my speed dropped. So I shifted into fourth and cruised until I could find a place to pull in and investigate. I was thinking throttle cable, but then the RPM would have dropped to idle, then I thought maybe the cable or linkage got caught on something. The gas pedal was unresponsive and loose. So I coast into McD's and popped the hood to find the throttle linkage hanging, I was shocked, hahahaha. As far as I can guess is when I threw it into third and hit the gas it twisted the arm holding the TB buttlerfly causing it to snap. I babied her to work and home afterwards. Tomorrow I finally have a day off, so I'll try to borrow a borescope to check the cylinders for the screw. If I cannot find it I'll pull the head, check for damage, shave the head and slap a metal gasket on her and finally install my cams. OR I might just keep driving her as is and throw my super dookie built 4AG in her and call it a day. Only bad thing about that is tuning, would have to rely on my buddy to tune the SDS and set it up, cause when it comes to wiring, I'm a dunce. Either way, I'm looking forward to wrenching on her tomorrow. I will keep you updated.

Was off yesterday and my son started back school so I had the day to myself. I've had this spare motor sittin in my garage for awhile now and have been neglecting to tear it down, so finally yesterday I did so. All I knew about this motor was it has aftermarket cams and itb's. I knew the block was toast, so I decided to strip what was salvageable.

I pulled off the itb's and noticed that the intake side had some work done. Not alot, but some. pretty good sign
Image

The itb's off. need to clean them up a bit
Image

Pulled the cam gear cover to find these. was pleasantly surprised
Image

Looks as if someone de-burred her
Image

Pretty clean
Image

#1 is welldone.
Image

#1 looks a little gnarly, but will clean it up and see if I can reuse her. looks as if she was decked .5mm, so I will shave her another 1mm, slap on a .5 metal gasket and enjoy

Image

Jewelry for my baby
Image

Suspension work gone wrong. I went to put my good bits from my track car on her, but seems I had lost some little bits n pieces. then I had a bolt snap. it was one thing after another in the 100plus degree heat, so I just put the old stuff back on and took a cold shower. I will tackle again this Monday

Hey All, since my son Kaze flew back to the states and I'm still dealing with my wife stealing my daughter, things have been pretty sh!tty. After not touching my car for almost a year, two weeks ago I got back in the garage and started working on her. I pulled the blacktop motor out of my BB86 and tore it down. Will do a bit of head work and maybe shave the head, along with changing out the gaskets. Pretty stoked to be gettin dirty again. I will also start on the body again, I need to cut the front fenders and get them prepped for the CBY overfenders I got for her.

Here is a Bukkake pic of my girl
Image

I will be posting more very soon. Been spending all of my spare time with her and my brother Rose who is the wiring guru helping me out.

Before you now it you'll be por15'ing everything. I did my the floor pans, boot floor and a bunch of other stuff.

Did you scuff up the paint before the por15? Sometimes this stuff reacts kinda funky.

Yeah, sanded the paint a bit before applying. I'm trying to cover as much as possible. I got the POR15 Velvet Black for my header. Would like to shoot the undercarriage as well. Plan on pulling the carpet soon to hit the inside firewall

Yeah, the salt air, humidity, and the rain here kills these old cars. It's a constant chore keepin up with it. I've seen cars left neglected and eventually had to be swept away. Do as much rust prevention as possible before putting her on the boat
