I wish, they are actually rewinds... but ya I tried looking that info up to, and no one had a good answer for me, 15x7 0 offset fits, that all I know... sorry for not being more helpful.

Started hacking up the AE111 cusco 6pt cage to fit my AE86 hatch.



cut the plates off and droped it 1 inch.

Good fitment with the roof line

Having trouble with the rear bars, not sure how I want to go about it. Im thinking Either weld it into the wheel well, but then the seats cant drop down anymore, or make a custom bar that ties into the rear of the car, and gives me room for the seats to drop.

I have not moved it all the way forward yet

Bar still needs paint and to be moved forward. but getting closer

Great progress, I know I'd be worried about messing up that cage, but I guess welding is one of those skills that fixes a lot of errors.

It seems like your intentions are to keep the rear seats in use, so I would recommend keeping the car as utilitarian as possible. My two cents would be to go with the custom bar, to allow the seats to fold down fully, as seats that only partially fold down are kinda useless in my eyes.

In general, my philosophy for a hatchback is: "What's the point if you can't load any cargo?". Again, just my two cents.

Thanks, I only had a hour of sleep last night, so I wish I had gottem more done, but I am just too sleepy.

Ya I would like to keep the car looking simple, full interor, and use of the rear seats. so I am talking with a few people to find a way to make it structurally stable and also allow for the rear seats to drop down... I will have to wait to hear back before I finish the rear part of the cage.

For sure, I've been there many times. Sleep is optional.

No doubt with a think tank you'll find a solution. For how many modified AE86s there have been I'm sure someone's found a way around the rear seats.

No problem! Thanks for the info

Yeah I think I remember reading you want 15" rims to use the RX7 brakes / calipers.

As for the rears, I think cars that came with the MA46 / MA47 rear end came with 14" rims, so those should work.

But since curiosity has got the better of me...

Are your rewinds 14" or 15"? I read the tire and it says 185/60/14 (unless the tires have been stretched to fit on there ) It looks like the RX7 brakes / calipers fit, if just barely.



Cutting up an AE86? Please me know! I need body panels!

They fit certain 14"s, usually with some grinding on the edges of the caliper.

Sorry, no sleep made me write very unclear lol.


Erics got it, I had to grind only a little to get the 14's (14x7 -9, ithink) to fit, possible with a -20 offset it may have no clearence issues, but I am not sure as I have not tried.

My 15x8 et0 had no clearance issues, the 14s did but nothing a little work could not fix, but thats if you have the tools etc to do so.<br /><br />

Man that's major progress. It's all downhill from here. It was a B trying to wedge my 7A into my car since the block is so much taller than 4A. I know the SR is massive by comparisons lol.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it! I got a lot of help from my friends! That plus your motivation really helps move this project along.

Started working with my buddy xene, making custom mirrors. Not sure if they will be done, but I do have extra CF and resin, so why not right.

any suggestions, constructive criticism or opinions is always appreciated.

That cage looks great; makes me think about installing one myself down the road. These vehicles aren't really the most safe from the factory, so I don't think it would be a bad idea.

Also, it goes without saying those mirrors look great. Keep it up!

Yeah you should probably make solid molds of those mirrors so you can make extras. Then sell me those extras.

Thanks everyone!

Note- yeah the cage is coming along. I would not recommend a cage in a DD, but since I have the CF doors, I needed to have lateral bars installed and cage, in case of a side impact. This is Also just a fun car to take out every once and a while, and take to the track and beach etc. Thanks I kinda am digging the mirrors we made.


TD86- thanks man! I apprecaite it!

Eric- ya man I am trying to look up how to make a "buck" mold but I am just not sure how. If you know anyone that would take them once they are done being carved and want to make molds of them I would be down to share them. I am no pro, so this is just fun spare time stuff.

Wow, that's certainly unfortunate, man. Glad to hear you're alright, though.

The AE86 is definitely shaping up!

Thanks, Ya I am glad I was not hurt too. 1 because no one wants to be hurt. and 2, because I really did not want to be striped down naked in my own hospital by all my friends and coworkers lol! Its like a bad nightmare coming true!


I actually got really hooked up from the miata boards, got a new front bumper, fender, headlights, radiator, ac condenser, hood, and radiator support for 600 bucks! there goes the AE86 fund, but my car should be back on the road in a week when the body guys get done installing and painting it all!


So for now I am broke, and I will be stuck installing what parts I have for the AE86, but It might be a min before I get the last needed parts to get her running (fuel pump, driveshaft)


I did get some cool stuff from Nippon in!
AERO mirrors!!

Haha, I forgot you were in the medical field. Yes, that would be embarrassing.

That's what I call a supportive forum!! I hate to say it, but I don't really expect that from Club4AG; parts seem too valuable here, although, I should be more optimistic.

bnicolas- hopefully not... I got a complete front end, radiator support, radiator, ac condenser, fender, headlights, hood, bumper, hood latch for 600 bucks. My buddy at the body shop said they can hook me up, get it all buttoned up and installed and painted for 300-350.

So coming in at just under a grand, it sucks, but not really a money pit. The NB KBB's as around 10 grand still, since it is very low millage.


just sucks during finals week, christmas time, and so close to my ae86 being done... but that will all have to wait, as I need a DD more.

Projects can always wait; I'm just glad you were able to source the parts and labor, successfully, for a good price. It's as I always say, "it's not what you know, it's who you know".

I'll look forward to updates on both the NB, and the AE86.

Thank you note, your right.

Here are a few updated pictures of test fitting the aero mirrors.

Been stuck at home, MX5 is almost out the body shop, should get it any day now. Finals are pretty much done, last one is one tuesday but I did all my crazy hard ones this week. So I had to some to work on the AE today.


Found a RatRod shop that had mandrel bent piping, lol seems like the Inland Empire has never heard of this, cause I had to go to 6 shops to find it, and no one else seemed to know what it even was lol!

Got some steel cut, and made my own frame spacers, with the help of my buddies better drill bits lol!

some pics of the motor mounts

trans mount


Installed the Megan Tension Rods, wow that FU*%ing bolt was one there crazy tight!!!

Old rusty nasty oem tensionrod

Sexy Beefy Megan Tension rod


Drilled a hole for the intercooler piping, and wrapped a old hose around it to make sure it wont cut the coupler.



The Hood would not close all the way even with my custom frame spacers, so I called the company that made the engine mounts, they said I may have to take some of the support frame of the hood.. kinda sucks... oh well.


TCS hood, I am gonna cut you!

Hood pretty much sits closed now....

Car coming along... slow but steady.

Ian,
thanks for showing me the rolla the other day!
I had the personal pleasure of looking at all of your work. (For me...AWESOME! And inspirational)
Can't believe you are getting all of this done while mending your miata+school. CRAZY!
It looks like it is getting closer and closer.
Good luck

Hey john ya it was fun kicking it with ya, come by anytime and have a beer, and watch or help wrench! I work on it most sunday Seeing your car, helps motivate me to get mine done!


To start AE86, and beer

got my hatch gas prop rods to work. I got the eastbear hatch second hand, and the P.O. had busted out the hatch bolts that where glassed into it. So I had to make longer brackets, still need to cut it down to size. But hey at least it works right now!


Started cutting out the trans tunnel for the S13 trans

Pulling the carpet out to, so I can angle grind the hole out, with our burning down the car!

Taadaa It fits!

Had to extend the throttle cable, I used my old MR2 turbo extra throttle cable, from the junction block.

Started with a piece of aluminum

Bracket made, now one more to go!

Adapter plate to hold the two throttle cables together

All done, throttle cable connected and feels nice!

So I went to put the other Megan Tension rod on, and man what a PAIN! the bolt was rusted on so bad, I had to grind it off! ??? lol took for ever, not fun lol.


I also finally finished the Panhard bar/ lateral bar. So the DIY set up does not fit a celica supra rearend just FYI for anyone else wanting to do this. I had to order a extra extension from K and H an local store here. K and H metals supply part number 917020044 3/4-16 alloy linkage adjuster Then grind down the metal around the bolt "it had a little ring around it" so I could get the bar to slip over it.


I Also got the hood to close and lock properly finally, cut down the inside of the hood a bit, I forgot to take pictures, but I will post them up when I can.
