    Well now that my Trueno is basically done and is a lil over the top for a daily driver in start/stop traffic and parking, i decided to get a daily. What i got was a AE71 Wagon. Cheap too! Ive also got a bunch of parts ive had laying around for a while so i'll be chucking them in it this week. They are:

    - JDM Ae86 Front suspension set up including brakes
    - PWR steering arms
    - Lock spacers (AJPS)
    - Sigma Arms
    - 30 RCAs
    - RA40 Tie rods
    - 13 x 8 and 13 x 10 with negative offset for wheels
    - Bolt on flares
    - Fender Mirrors

    Its got a super clean besides for a few rust spots. Interior is amazing. I'll be rubbing it back and painting either this week or next pending weather and when i get my hands on a square front KE.

    Unsure what color to go with. it is either white, grey, deep maron(like coke cola) or british green. Keen to hear your thoughts?

    Anyway here are some pics. I'll start slapping parts in this week after i get it regod.

    Pics of car and parts:








    Also once i get the money from the Government i'll chuck a 4age in it and maybe do something with slapping a T series in it seeing as it is ready for all of this. Should make a sweet daily and a interesting slider.. hehe Oh yer the AC in this thing works amazing!!

    Yer she is a lil rough but wont take me to long to make it a lil nicer. Its just a daily thrasher so im not to worried.

    Rear end? well there are a few ideas, One idea is to adapt a sprinter rear end, meaning trailing arms, panhard and a t Series in there with LSD or the other ideas is to mod the T series to work with the leaf springs weld a panhard rod in there and bam.

    We have a certain way we make the rear ends stiff in cars with leaf springs, so i'll just see how it handles with the standard S series and 86 front end first then decided from there, It makes it easy when ive got a smashed 86 with T series and everything sitting here ready to go

    Be interesting to see how it turns out

    I'm just planning on using an S-series and chucking more leaves in the pack

    Example of said color. I was just looking through the paints we have and we have so much white so i might just paint it white and be boring. Lol. With T18 Lights do i need to run T18 front? Is that possible?

    Squish M8: When i do the leaf springs this week i'll try and do a small DIY in this thread for you.
