Raven86Project's build thread

Greetings FT86 community! First post and beginning of my journey.
A little bit about my previous projects:
In mid-2000 I got an AP1 S2k


Sold the S2000 and got a '93 MR2 Turbo.






Sold the MR2 and on December 2016 got a 2015 FR-S manual, 10k miles. Planning to keep it for a long time.




After owning the S2k and MR2, the FR-S/86 feels right at home!

Pulled up a little too far; good thing you're not lowered yet lol.

Nice previous rides and tasteful mods.

Lightning and emblems








While I was at it, did snorkel mod and sound tube delete.










Switchback turn signal LEDs










Also removed the red triangle which I really disliked.



And added a light tint so all the clear wouldn't stand out so much.

Did you have to do anything special to install the headlamps or was it all plug n play?

Very nice mods.

I had an 07 S2000 and a 91 MR2 Turbo previously so you have good taste.

Good thing you got the 93 MR2 Turbo, my 91 nearly killed me a few times with the snap oversteer which I heard was corrected in 93+.

Excuse my ignorance but what do the up and down toggle switches next to the VSC buttons do?

Wow, you're making quick progress. Looks great.

Regarding the red triangle, did you just pry it off?

Looks great! Where did you find the red door handles? Looking to get a set as well.

Very cool, thread subscribed.

Where did you get that shifter knob and reverse lockout?

Also where did you get the interior trim pieces?

Looks great man. Also love that emblem on the back.
