Spend  $$$$$$$ on oem plastic. aftermarket is crap. Avoid putting any stickers with a .com on it, as they would not be period correct {a pet peeve}. And are you planning a factory restoation for racing? Thats crazy. A mechanical/cosmetic refurb makes more sense. Some people call refurbs a resto{another pet peeve}, is that what you mean? Refurbs are TONS cheaper than resto's.

Waterpump housing can be a pain in the ass.

I fixed mine with 2 Components liquid steel.

So if its not to bad it can be done.

This is how it looked after beadblasting.

But good luck with your Honda 86.

Very nice model.
