I;m not familiar with the front apron reinforcement... I have the K-panel reinforcement (not installed) and I have installed the front shock tower (to cowl) brace. That made a HUGE difference!

I went to install the horns on my 86 roadster and had to hold off because of some questions. I picked up an NOS kit so I'm adding it to my car.

First, it looks like the 86 has to have the compress ...

I FINALLY got to do some sanding!

I used a grinder to get the extra superglue off (It was REALLY hard) and then used an orbital palm sander to level out the resin that had oozed everywhere. I know ...

Some more updates!
I added some extra reinforcement panels on the trailing edge of the arm rests. I might add another lip to secure them, but I really just wanted to add some strength to that part o ...

The speaker grill panels were pretty rusty, so I soaked them in some rust eater. The picture below is what happens when you don't coat them after they soak. they rust again. I am soaking them again ...

So I have glued on the metal reinforcement brackets and I have reinforced the top corners and pull-line holes.

I am adding another screw point to the top of the panels and I'm gluing some reinfor ...

I ordered the rear shock tower brace before I fully understood the reinforcement that ASC did to the car. But, since I had it, I went ahead and installed it. I have an 86, so I figured ANY stiffenin ...

I figured that I would reinforce the lips with metal and use resin to glue everything together. I understand that it would add weight, but it wouldn't be that much and I have just replaced the cardbo ...

My car came with the standard door panels, and I wanted to upgrade. I found a pair of complete panels on eBay and snapped them up. I have a friend who does boat tops and upholstery, so I figured I c ...

I saw that one, too, and entered it in the database. The body looks pretty good, but the interior and top are rough. They claim it has 34,000 miles on it, which is a joke. It has to be 134,000 sin ...

That was the coupe--with the Connecticut plates. I didn't know if it was an 85 or 6.

I'm really curious what it went for. I am (kinda) looking for a coupe and that would have been a good one. It ...

So I drove the 5 hours to the show and it was a bit of a let down. I thought there would be more vendors and maybe a little more organization. there were a lot of different cars, though!

There we ...

I bought the car on eBay for about $3400 in 2017. I don't actually recall bidding on the car (another case of drinking and bidding!) but I got the text when I won it and thought it was a good deal. ...
