    Gíday everyone, Iíve just acquired my first ae86, also my first toyota for that matter so Iím a total noob lmao. This is almost definitely the most optimistic project Iíve ever taken on/will ever take on as it needs so much work that I havenít even processed it mentally yet, so yeah, Iím in way over my head but weíll see how we go. With that in mind, hereís a little about the car.

    The car is a 1983 ae86 levin hatch (ADM). Some time a few owners before me, the car had been stripped for parts so itís currently a bare rolling shell having only suspension, wheels, and a rear hatch. It has rust, bog, and a severe lack of everything that makes it a car.

    My current plan of action is to bring the car back to my place where Iíve got a shed and all the resources to complete this impossible task. Iíll sand out all the bog and repair the rust and make everything straight so that I have a solid base to start this project. Iíll also pay some attention to the brakes and see why the left rear drum is locked up. Meanwhile I really need parts, and whether itís realistic or not, Iím on a tight budget, so Iíll be looking for the cheapest parts that I can find. Anything broken but repairable and usable is perfect for me (hmu if you can help me out lol).

    My short term end goal for this car is to have it be as bare bones and minimalistic as possible, just enough to get the car on the road. Any engine and gearbox I can find will do just fine. The interior will be a dash, steering wheel, seats, and what ever else that comes up along the way. For wheels, Iíve got a set of 13Ē enkei meshís thatíll most likely go on for the time being.

    Hopefully I can keep on top of this project and also update this thread when ever I make any progress. In the meantime, big thanks in advance to any help I get along the way. Cheers



    Ps, all of my mates are into old Mitsubishiís or Holden commodores, so I need more mates who are into corollas. Iím located in Canberra, Australia so hmu if you are too lmao.
