    Default Project Clean 87

    56K NOOO!!!
    A ton of photo's on every page.

    So I've decided to stop being lazy and start writing my own build thread for my 1987 Gay Blue Hardtop. I picked this car up from my buddy with a clean title N/A, local previous owners, and being only the 5th owner. This car was an automatic that came with the 3.91 LSD stock. I also picked up a set of JDM power folding mirrors and a set of JDM bubble markers with the car. On top of an uber clean set of stock grey mats and an almost flawless grey interior, including new grey leather e-brake handle cover.

    I'm going to be swapping almost everything from my 90 to this 87, including the 1JZ-GTE, R154, 1-piece aluminum DS, and 91-92 turbo black 5-spokes with Hankook K106 225/50-16 tires all around. I already have installed an ACT clutch kit rated at 405 HP/ Ft. lbs. torque, Brembo drilled and slotted rotors, a 935 Motorsports 3" catless exhaust system with Megan Racing GT muffler (that has a 5" tip), cold air intake, JIC Magic front lower strut bar, reverse glow guages with brushed aluminum bezel cover and new clear guage cover, and of course a battery relocation kit.

    Here's the pics of my 87 as it sits now.







    I didn't swap the other pair of 5-spokes today because I am going to unbolt the subframe, motor and tranny still attached, and roll it under the 87. When I do the subframe swap, the propper wheels will be with the appropriate car. Part of my interior is in my 87, the rest of my interior as at a friends house in his 87. This means that I have a bunch of interior parts just sitting in my car, unbolted and laying where ever.

    I ordered a black and blue Greddy Full Auto turbo timer and harness this week, a Megan Racing rear strut bar. I'm working on trading my mint condition 89+ clear corners for a set of pre-89 clear corners, and my new flushmount headlights are on the way (only 1 of 2 in existance). John Lozado (the guy who made my flushmounts), is the other guy. When I'm ready, I will order 4 55W H7 projector lights to use, 2 per side.

    I have a lot of work to do.

    I got my wheels and brakes swapped all around today. The back right caliper bolts fought me like it was cool and required a lot of penetrating lube and almost got stripped. I swapped those bolts out with the ones from my 90. Next step, swap hood struts, install fresh set of spark plugs, and figure out where I'm grounding out.

    They don't mind you doing that stuff on base? Are you in the dorms or in housing? I can understand in the housing parking lot. I have done all mine in housing parking underneath the parking overhang.

    I live in the barracks. I do all my work in the back of the parking lot where absolutely nobody drives or parks (I have a massive parking lot at my barracks). Technically I'm suppossed to be doing all this work at the hobby shop, but why pay when I can do it in the parking lot? Besides, I have all the tools I need.

    Boris, my car sits way higher (no motor or tranny on stock suspension). Oh, and I should be putting my freshly painted JDM power folding mirrors on shortly (as soon as I get off my ass and put them back together and on the car).

    I also just bought a new yellow box (tail lamp failure module) for $150 shipped new from Champion. Ouch!

    I decided that I might as well swap the hood struts (no Supra stick for me ), I cleaned off the duct tape residue (after almost 2 years of owning the car, the duct tape residue came with the car), and I changed my spark plugs too. I feel as if I got a lot accomplished today. Although I had a Supra stick sitting under my car and someone stole it

    I couldn't sleep last night, so I stripped off the masking tape and installed the passenger side power folding mirror (wiring still to come). I also installed a new 2.5 Twin Turbo badge in the grill.



    Ahhh, fresh paint. I'll install the other side tomorrow night more than likely. Then it's on to my friends Eclipse (door swap, mirror install, rotor swap).

    Installed the drivers side mirror, left rear side marker, new tail light failure module, and swapped windshield wipers in the front because it didn't have any at all. Still need to get a rear windshield wiper (even though I'll never use it).

    Looking good man!! I am thinking about relocating my battery also, what kit did you end up going with?

    One question tho, why did you buy a new tail light failure module for $150 from champion??? Thats an extra $150 that could have been used for car mods. I got a used one for $10 when I switched to a 89+ spoiler, shit I would have gave you my old yellow one for free.... it worked fine.

    Simple, I didn't pay for the module. My friend had to take mine, so I made him buy me a new one. As far as the relocation kit goes, I just got a generic kit off of EBay.
