    Hey guys,

    A few of you may know me from around here and there having owned about 6 AE86's in the past. One of which was a ground up rebuild Trueno with 4AGZE, coilovers, 15x9 meisters, kouki lights all round and a few other goodies. I abandoned the project due to cold feet and ended up building my S15 instead.

    Here's where I got up to before I parted it out:



    And my S15:



    Anyway, I've now acquired a new AE86 and going to keep this thread updated with it's progress. Things get done a lot quicker when you do them 10th time round.

    Started out as a stock red ADM, we took it back to the workshop and stripped it bare:



    Interior was stripped with dry ice:



    Unnecessary holes in the bay were welded and filled:



    Interior and engine bay were painted (the color didn't come out right, it was meant to be more on the gunmetal side, but too late now haha):









    We used the engine / driveline from my brother's damaged AE86 as a donor and binned the shell:

    We fit the motor in, then Nathan (sprinter86) came around to clean up the wiring mess (did a really good job of it, hid all my wiring):





    Here's how it sits now:



    Will add more updates in the next few days.
