projekt zeal86 (build thread)

I bought my FR-S on June 22nd, 2014...since then I have been learning about the FR-S/BRZ. Most of the knowledge I have gained has been through this forum. I was born in Japan so I have an affinity for all things Japanese (except for seafood), I'm still very pro-Nissan however, Toyota and Subaru have collaborated on a masterful machine. My goals for my 86 are hobby, show car (aka trailer queen), and weekend ride.

My previous build, a 2004 Nissan 350Z was very succesful in my opinion. Check out that ride at the following old a$$ link.

or at zeal.eightsix Facebook in my photo albums under 2004 Nissan 350Z.

There's a sub-forum called "members journals" for these types of threads. But they usually include pics of a twin at least?

I have only installed the exhaust...not many pics of the 86 worth posting just yet. Just trying to give people an idea of where my build will be headed with the 86.

Basically... only born there because my father was stationed there. If you recognize the PR flag then you know how proud we are and that we love our cars... Seafood smells... yuck.... lol

Big plans for the 86!

sure maybe true but there are some great builds out there that started with "I have big plans." I posted pics and a link to my last project to show that there will be progress with this build.

I haven't posted pics of my 86 yet because there is currently nothing special about it...I haven't received or got around to installing a number of things. In time I will add pics of my 86 to this thread.
