    Hey team,

    Greetings from over the ditch in NZ!

    So I have had this car for ages (about 11yrs or so), when I got it was a stock 3au powered auto and I drove it around for a while before I took it off the road to begin work to make it something a bit more fun!

    Work done so far:

    TRD springs 8kg front and 6kg read with short stroke shocks
    Smallport 4age with loom and ECU and 22 spline T50 bolted to it.
    AE86 pedal box
    AE86 rear end with a TRD LSD.
    AE86 brakes up front.

    AE86 Fuel tank and lines.
    Wheels: SSR MKII 14x8 -12 front and 14x9 0 in the rear.


    Still to do:
    Wiring - 12pin plug on ecu, starter, alternator and connect everything to make it run.
    Paint exhaust manifold so it isn't this weird orange colour that they came off the shelf.
    Mount accelerator bracket and put the intake side of the engine on.

    Some pics!

    Thanks mate, I was lucky to get such a clean rust free car. Mind you these were easier to get 10yrs ago!

    These forums don't seem very active...?
