1986 XE S12 - Project Serenity
« on: 12:31:27 AM / 30-Sep-13 »

(edit, don't use facebook friends for an image host)

Well since this was for sale and my graduating issues with my firebird and just recently firebird blown a head gasket, I picked up this old Blue Demon.

This just became my restore project thanks Mr and MS Sideways for allowing me to purchase this fine hatch, it's clean, it's nice, and it will decimate all when I put a few G's in her and overnite a few parts from Japan.





Going to full on restore her with the ca20e for now, when I rack up on the cash next year she will get a ka24de upgrade.  0 Plans to drift this one as this is going to be my daily driver that I want to take long road trips on with.

Parts in the need so far:

1) Brake Master Cyl
2) Clutch Slave ?!? I need to look at why it's just dangling down there.
3) Plug wires
4) Battery
5) eFans (because, the clutch fan is just janky)
6) vaccum hoses I should have 90% of these hoses from the inspection that I have done.
7) Lugs
8) Tires
9) Intake box
10) Extra Ehaust piping to connect from the headers to the rear end DC 4inch tip exhaust pipe. ( or might switch with my fairlady silva project. )

Need to inspect is the brake pads & rotors, transmission lines, fuel pump.

I also need to set the timing since the dizzy wasn't pushed down and it could be out of timing. Yay for my trusty timing light.

Then she will be road worthy.


edit: I was just typing that up lol.

Well at this point it's to get her running first, she needs to be reliable.  Don't care about the power band at the moment, lol.

I might throw in a surprise and pick up something special for this one. But I will not give out what I have in store for her.

I have the stock exhaust manifold, it is just missing that cat converter. Does it really need one though?

Getting classic vehicle plates, I will have to come by when you don't close and see what I can piece together.

The majority of the list is above. I have no free time this week to put it on stilts and inspect the underside.
