here's the plans:
-sort out all the wiring(previous owner did a wire tuck and everything is moved)
-sort out the headlight problem (lights will pop up but not down)
-New metallic black boot lid and respray number plate panel
-Hardtop, silver or black
-respray front bumper and fill the number plate holes and get a plate the mounts to the tow hook
-underseal the hole car, as its so low the paint has been rubbing off the sills on the speed bumps so want to repaint them and underseal it before any rust sets in
-Hsd HR coilovers
-Get a proper turbo setup similar to trixta's on here
-Kazz 1.5 lsd
-Either rota d2's from America or wide 16x8 banded steelies
-More steering lock
-Will probably do the subframe bushings at some stage as they are known to go on the mx5, and that will help stiffin it up, wishbones and anti-roll bars bushes will be done as well

All comments and suggestions welcome! B)

Boot looks sweet sprayed up properly :D are you going to get the rear panel done aswell?

Yea it used to have a HKS system, but that hung too low and got mashed up on the floor! Now its got a full catbak from Powerflow. Its a straight through pipe (2.25" I think). Only form of silencer it has is the cat! Thats why its so loud lol, but it sounds the nutz :driving:

p.s I wish I never sold it lol

Cheers man, dunno I'm kinda liking the matt black panel, it's something different!
Ha I was wondering why it was so loud but it does sound great! Did you have any bother putting it through the mots or anything?
Did you sell the ae86? What you gonna do now?

Cheers for the nice comments guys!
