Started suspension and steering refresh. Went through the steering rack, replaced some bearings and repacked, turbo tie rods on the bench, just waiting on some parts.



Then these jerks, ughh. Just these took the better part of a day to get out. One of them came out pretty easily, but I started hammering on the other one, and well...

Short story is, you have to drill 4 holes in your frame, and drill out two rivets that attach a mounting bracket to the cross frame of the non swing window so you can re-use it

Ive been wanting to do this. Have you been able to match the glass green tint from the Ď86? Where did you source the vent window frame, etc?
Cheers,

Suggest a little anti seize with re-assembly.

After several modes including a AFR gauge, I installed a chip from 911 Chips (Steve Wong). Best money I have ever spent on the car. Difference in smoothness and power is amazing. Steve’s customer service is excellent and I would highly recommend his product.

Out with the old and in with the new








Started spraying PB Blaster on all the fittings last week. Read about the threads on the thermostat and was a little worried about messing them up but they came out OK. Used the oil line wrenches offered by our host.

Very interesting. I attempted the same this past spring but I could never get the vent window to shut. I tried two rubber seal suppliers since I thought that might be the problem, but no go.
I gave up as I wanted to drive the car and not be messing with it.
I hope to have another go at it next down season and I think a write up from you would be very helpful, so thank you in advance.
BTW, I was told the chrome portion gave the car a bit of a hot rod look. Go figure.
I liked it.

Pressure washed it. Bad idea! I dont know what i was thinking. Blew off a bunch of clear and a little paint. Went around and touched it up got it looking ok again. silver lining the vinyl fender guards on the back fenders were looking pretty bad because they painted over them and were looking chippy i debated replacing them but the pressure washer took the paint off and they are like new now. Well I did one side anyway ill save the other side for another day.

Finally got the driver's Recaro in after figuring out the spacers I needed and getting the hardware. Passenger's seat to follow once I get a couple more spacers.

New front trunk carpet thanks to FlyingJay......A small detail that was bugging me. The original gray Perlon stuff was crap.

Drove it in 94F to see how the motor would react to wicked heat and humidity.

50 miles on the highway at 33-3700rpm, and some stop/go traffic. Ran perfectly, seemed to actually like the heat, temp was perfect, and surprisingly, the transmission really liked the heat! Shifted like butter.

Yeah I don't think it would fit the AC condenser without bending the skid plate at the front or spacing it down. I don't have AC but I had to remove the bar that protects the condenser because it interfered with the plate.

Look good.

Does it replace the Pan (#7 - Protective Plate)?
