    Default Matt's JDM Levin project

    Hi All,

    So I'm back to owning an 86 and a 4AGE .. hopefully this project will be a bit more successful than my previous 4AGE/86 projects, it's a much better base to work from - for a start it's already running!

    I bought Andy's (4doors) JDM Levin this week that he sadly had to part with and moved it to its new home (see attached).

    Link to Andy's old build thread: http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/fo...86-it-s-JDM-yo

    Plan is to get it registered and live with it for a little while to learn its quirks etc, see what else it needs apart from the obvious..

    I've made a list of things it needs addressed before trying for a roadworthy:
    • Steering wheel changed from the tiny & flimsy fake nardi
    • Decat pipe swapped for a cat
    • Tail light bulb replaced
    • Seatbelts repaired or replaced (they don't seem to lock like they should)
    • Seems to have a minor oil leak
    • Might be a tad too low - will have to check clearance
    • Drift button on the handbrake might be a problem if picky RWC guy...


    Goal is to have it on the road by the 12th of Feb for the local all japanese day.

    Longer term most of what I want to do to the car is cosmetic, I'd like to put a kouki front end, a couple of other bits and pieces, new wheels etc.. Rust fixed and new paint.

    Going to try and take my time with this one, so I don't expect to update this thread often, but will try and keep it as a record of the build.

    Cheers,
