Hi everyone I just got this 86' hatch from Bill (thebeastidrive)
Posted Image

That is an old picture of it

Here it is as it sits today. (sorry for the bad cell phone pic)
It still has a 6" lift on it. It is also pretty much gutted

My plan for this build is to put this into it
Posted Image

Its an EJ22 i got for $25 so it need some parts to get it to run. in the process of buying new bearings and piston rings.

This pic is right before i ran it through the parts washer at school.

Right now i have my friends 4speed and rear diff for it.
But my other plans are to paint it a dark flat purple and black. Going to put on some 32" tire don't know what kind yet. a dual hand brake mod, a 5speed swap, a nice front and rear bumper with skid plates, a welded rear diff, and maybe a 6 lug swap.

I could send you a used piston if you want pretty cheap. Need to know which bore its for meaning is it an A or B size piston and what year EJ22 it is for.
