Ok, so I might do this as a compromise.
I'm going to clean up the black car, fix the wire mess as its something I do in IT already.  Give me about 6 months to acquire megasquirt for the blue car and this would give me time to troubleshoot the motor in a system that did work before so when I convert to ms it will be on a working system.

I got the Robin project turned around, did some looking around and noticed how clean the suspension is under the dirt, as I see it this car has some potential. I placed a black bumper on the front for now till I can get to the red one on the side of my house to pull that bumper and side fender. The dirt is strong inside but I have confidence I can make this work with the 85 harness re-pinned to the 86.5

The black one, I didn't get a chance to start my quest to fix the harness yet since I need a new soldiering gun and it has been on and off raining this past weekend.

This weekend, I plan to start fixing the harness as I did have taken some days off, I am going to take a small trip to the junk yard to also get some clips from an ca20 car that I will need to replace on the red robin car including ignition switch and turn signal light.

Well, Project Robin got a a bit of an update today...

I finally put a driver seat in it... yeah there is now a driver seat...  and this stuff, what am I doing here though? you will see soon enough.

I pull a red fender and the red bumper from a spare car I had aside.



Placed the turbo hood because it looks better than the 87 hood.


Cleaning all the spiderwebs below... looking for that spider.



Drastically I did this, that spider had to be somewhere.


There Found the lil bugger, did I mention I hate spiders? I was out of gas with the blow torch so I sprayed it with generic Brake Kleen and watched it die in agony and then I just hammer smashed it till it was more than just a spec on the cement, also damaged the cement on my driveway.


Now for the serious mode.
THese transmission are same same but different but still same.

Take your time bro, it isn't going anywhere. 

I will be looking for the turbo lip in the future,

Actually I used purple power degreaser but still it is spotty with oil stains and the paint is chipping away from the brake booster / clutch area (seems to be a norm) as the fluids does eat the paint away.

So I have been thinking of tossing in some spray paint inside the engine bay as much as I can, sand it down some especially the visible areas with the oil stains and repaint the inside.

Looks good, some years back when I had the engine out, I cleaned each section and cleared coated with Duracolor high temp clear. It made the whole bay look great!

I will have to do that the next time I have to pull the motor.

Test fitting the motor.




I am thinking it might be a good possibility to repaint the red valve covers to match the car, or polish the current ones. still deciding.



Changed out the bent vender with a solid one.




That is it for now, I got stuff to order to proceed from here.
I need a new slave cyl, (clutch line dampener bypass mod).
Thermostat.
Going with the waylon way and going Honda Raidator and Audi Intercooler setup.
Headlight switch
Cyl Lock

Todo: wiring and stuff.
