    Well finally getting around to a build thread after owning my 84 Zenki ae86 for 2yrs now.

    It's an import but basically the same as ADM in all honesty.

    I was a noob when I first bought it and paid way too much for what it was, but I was impatient and wanted a imported one. Was looking at a couple Tim.Duncan's old silver gze, and a later panda Levin.

    In retrospect I should've opted for timmy d's but was not keen on a few minor things and being inexperienced I wanted a N/A car.
    (any one know of this car and its whereabouts?)

    When first aquired

    Then I drove into a fence whilst being a Dick. Damage is not bad but dented the Rad support and chassis support.

    I covered up the damage with a new bumper (zip tied on as one mount was bent)and removed the bonnet latch to put in bonnet pins so the bent bonnet would sit more flush.
    Couple of months later I got a major defect
    -too much play in seats
    -modfied suspension
    -steering wheel
    -low tread on tires
    * note cop didn't look twice at the damage
    So it wasn't going to pass with the damage so stripped it. And has sat dormant in my shed for the past 9 or more months

    When stripping it found some rust which I'm not happy about (i know its to be expected) but I'm not really sure if its bad or normal

    The engine is coming out over the weekend so fairly soon I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and make my mind up on what I'm going to do with it.

    Restore it to something I can get registered but as a track oriented car...so pour big $$$ into.

    Dump the parts into it that I've bought and track it.

    Or find a registered JDM shell.

    So far the parts I have are

    7age.
    full stainless Janspeed exhaust system.
    Pair of Velo GP90s will have to get it regod as a 2 seater.

    ...the joys of living in SA. Not!!!
