New to the 2g

Just picked an '87 Si up for $700. I have an '88 Si that I have had for about six years, and when I came across this one I decided to expand my collection. It is pretty rough, and is to be strictly a toy, as I don't know that I can trust the engine. The current plan is to replace a few gaskets, get it cleaned up a little mechanically, and then slam it on some nice wheels and paint it Blackberry Pearl. Throw the back seats in the trash, get a crossbar for harnesses and a couple of decent race buckets. This is strictly a weekend swagger, I can not afford to be broken down on the way to work one day.

A few questions that I have not searched, if you feel like helping me the lazy way feel free:

-I need a tail light, if you can direct me towards one please do

-Any catback exhausts available?

-Not knowing any maintenance history, should I look into a timing belt/water pump at 230k?

-Any cool JDM ish that I should know about? (particularly tail lights, lips, etc.)

230k? You should change the timing belt if you don't know how long it's been. Just a little insurance. The water pump isn'tdriven by the timing belt & is really easy to change so I wouldn't worry about it unless it's leaking or the bearings in it are shot.
