New Little facelift. Bout time I retired that old Vertex. She will wear the Vertex for comps and trackdays if the track ever opens back up
Image

Welded on the Levin headlamp brackets. Wrapped up the inner fender work. Put a thick coat of Panzer Grey on the inner fenders, like drenched that ****. **** rust, tired of dealin with it. Been dealin with it for almost 20 years now with all of the cars I've owned. Hopefully this will last
Image

Fenders are lined up with the doors. Headlamp brackets are lined up perfectly, was kinda eyein it then went apeshit with the welder
Image

Definitely going to run this decal on the girl
Image

Decided not to install the A/C and Heater. I will make a panel for the CD player to go here
Image

Was going to put the Water Temp and Oil Temp here, but changed my mind
Image

Since I won't have a heater or A/C, the gauges look better here. I will need to fab up a panel
Image

Found these in my panzer 86 glove box. Back in my loveho days
Image

I've owned a bunch of 86's and I've NEVER seen this. I stared at it for a few minutes, it didn't make sense. The shifter hole was skinnier and longer than normal and the mounting holes were different. Then it came to me, this 86 originally had an Automatic tranny. These are pretty rare finds
Image


Image

Here is the normal Manual tranny shifter hole in my grey 86
Image

Needed the rubber boot, but it wouldn't slip over where the shifter widened, so it got cut
Image

Looks good, will look better with sheet metal screws and extra sheet metal. Don't need hot air blastin through this hole
Image

She came with a half dash, now she has a full dash

The ones that came on the car, I have no idea. Actually they look like the dude just cut some clear foggy clear plastic and put them on there. BUT I did buy some legit clears from Autobacs a few years ago.

Droppin the tank to swap the fuel pump. I dread droppin the tank. It isn't hard to do, it just isn't that fun
Image
Image
Image

Swappin the stocker for the Walbro 255 outta my 32
Image

Strappin the tank back up. Notice my "Eco friendly jack stands"? Funny thing is, I got like 8 jack stands sitting along the wall. I like using the 2x4's mo betta
Image

Trunk lid off of the Panzer with stock coupe spoiler.
Image

Solex trunk lock installed. I got a whole set from my pare Rhett many years ago. These have been on four of my 86's. I lost the door locks a couple of years ago, but still got the trunk lock

Flocking kit came in the mail today. Looks like ill be pullin my dash to flock it
Image

Flock-It could not send their adhesive overseas so I used a black enamel paint. Could not find flat black, had to settle for gloss black. Kit came with enough flock to do two dashes and the mini-flocker applicator. I also bought two brushes. I had painted my dash a few months ago and never put armorall or any cleaners on it, so she just needed a good wipe down.
Image

Holy ****, This **** gets EVERYWHERE!!!! I flocking flocked my hand, I'm mother flockin filthy!!! Even after I washed my hands, my fingertips are black and furry, gonna have to whip out the thinner
Image

Looks decent, I'm happy with it, had to do a lot of touch up. I want to see it in the sunlight. Still got enough flock for another dash, Maybe I'll flock my son while he is sleepin
Image

HOLY ****, she's beautiful, I'm really happy with it so far, we will see after it dries and I blow off the excess flock
Image

Still have to blow off the excess flock
Image

Now she will dry for 2 hours.

That takes care of the auto hole in my manual 86. don't need no extra heater on the tranny tunnel, the plastic'll work fine
Image

Put the whole dash back in only to decide to pull it all out when I found a spare underdash harness in my spare room. Might fix the inop fuel pump since I've changed EVERYTHING else, but the harness
Image

Flockin SEXY!!!
Image

Not diggin the Skyline shift boot I made for my 32 in here. Will swap it out for a stock 86 boot, when I find one
Image

Once she is on the road, I will clean up the lower dash area
Image

Gittin her dun
Image

See how nice the harness is, get a good mental picture of it so you can compare to the absolute rats nest I pull out of the car.
Image

pullin it all back out
Image

one of the previous owners was a accessory bitch. Had all kinds crap spliced in. Yeah, that's the cigarette lighter sittin in the middle of that ****, weird
Image
Image

This is what came out. Believe it or not, about half of the stock harness has been dyked away by the previous idiot who I guess was trying to make it look cleaner, He failed. A lot of that rats nest are extra lights, bullshit and Autobacs gayness spiced in
Image

Speaking of rats nest, isn't this ironic? Found one. They've been evicted
Image

All back in with the new underdash harness, and believe it or not, the fuel pump now works, but the battery is almost dead, ain't that a bitch. I'll charge her tomorrow and crank her proper like

Thanks Tibby, if you ever happen to find yourself in Okinawa, you are more than welcome to stop by. I've owned a few 86 since the passing of my girl Blue. I haven't been able to get attached to any of them like I was attached to Blue, she was my girl. But now I'm feeling it again. My new girl just feels right. I love working on her and can't wait to slide her. Can't wait to post action shots of her. Thank you for the positive feedback, it just makes me want to work on her more, hahaha.

My neighbors hate me though. Well except for the Indian folks next door(behind my garage). In the beginning I was quiet, brought them all cookies when I moved in, tried to play along, but one neighbor started saying my sons were making too much noise while they were playing soccer down the street from their house, then another neighbor accused my sons of stealing stuff out of his car which is parked in his locked garage, The D-bag lady accross the street complained to my landlord that I'm starting my cars at 5am each morning and reving the engines and painting cars. Good thing my landlord is a family friend, he told me that they all wanted this piece of land my house is sitting on. I confronted them all. Like I said, I was being civil, but they unleashed the a$$hole in me. The lady across the street asked me one day if I was going to paint, which I hadn't in many months, so I said "No", so she hung out her clothes to dry and I mixed some paint and started shooting anything I could find. The Chinese guy who lives behind us accused my sons of theft yelled at my son one day when I son was skating in my driveway, I ran out got in his face and told him to get his chink ass back in his house or I would stomp him into the ground, so like the coward he is, he obeyed(I'm half chink, so daijobu). And finally the neighbors next to us, this old d-bag couple started putting dog crap in front of our driveway, so I grabbed some long tongs and flung it against their house AND whenever they come outside I tell them to get back in their house, it's kinda funny cause they listen. As for the Indian neighbors that we get along with, I fix their car when they have problems, Take their kids onbase for trick or treating. I can be the best neighbor you've ever had, or the worst, hahaha.

Ansen Top Eliminator wheels. I bought these off of Ebay about 10 years ago. The guy who had them said he bought them new in the early 60's and ran them on the back of his drag car
. He said they were 5x4.5 bolt pattern (114.3), but he was wrong. Still need to bring these to JP for him to redrill the lug holes. Been wanting to run these on the front of my 86 for years. I love old school American wheels

I've long forgotten the specs, I think 8.5 or 9j, 15inch, 5x? PCD. It's a bigger bolt pattern, so I've asked my buddy in the metal shop to see if he can change it to 4.5(114.3). I have 4 to 5 lug adapters just for these

My 7 month old daughter christening the new tool box
Image

Strippin the BB86. I bought her from my Hinga Bro Jay mainly for the motor and the suspension. The owner before Jay beat the crap outta her and rolled her, she had a 16v 4AG with a tiny stock SR20 turbine. Jay ripped out all of the turbo stuff and shoehorned a BT 4Ag in it's place. The chasis was mainly a test bed for **** we wanted to try. The body was twisted pretty bad and rust was claiming her, but she had a killer suspension set up. Tokiko HTS shocks all around, coilovers up front, adjustable lower arms, Cusco tension rods, aftermarket outer tie rods, EG Civic brake rotors and calipers up front(guess?), chopped knuckles, height adjustable camber plates, Revolver NCRA's. In the rear she has a RS*R Adj Lateral bar, Traction brackets, Cusco diff with 4.5 final, Cusco lower control arms, TRD springs. She was a hell of a car. Since she was in bad shape we decided to just battle patch her up and run her. I didn't fix any of the dents, but I did cut out alot of the rust and patched holes with FRP. She ran like a raped ape and out of the sixteen 86's I've owned, she is a close second to my "Blue". There was no saving the body, the door jambs were solid body filler and she was just falling apart. Most likely I will chop her up and dump her in the sea like I did with my old Blue. She served me well
Image

Stock 86 brakes on the right and the BB86 on the left. I'm guessing EG Civic brakes, can anybody confirm? Seeing as the EG brakes were popular with the 86s over here, I'm thinking that. But need to confirm before buying new brake pads.
Image

Skrappy cutting metal of of the Panzer86 to weld patches on his 86
Image

Kaze's old 86, was going to build it up for him, but with us not knowing if we can stay here and Kaze moving back to the states with his mother, we decided to share the new 86 with Kaze. Kaze's car was to be chopped and scrapped, but Skrappy was looking for a project to bring to Australia and asked about Kaze's car. I still had paperwork for it and was stoked that it was staying in the Hinga family and that she would be alive and kickin ass in Australia. I asked Kaze if it was alright and he said "Hell Yeah, COOL!!!". Skrapps has big plans for her and has been busting his ass on her. Not gonna say what he is doing with her, dunno if he wants to divulge that info at the moment.
