No, but many US cars have been fitted with those lights over the years.

So it has been a busy few weeks, I needed to prepare the car for a trip to the UK and Wales.

I needed:

- New brakes, the standard ones were pretty dangerous.

- A higher oilpan, the roads in the uk and Wales are not free of stones at times and it is hanging very low to ground.

- The right hand side Cusco camber plate, the ones I bought from ebay suck and have play on them, I kindly received a Cusco replacement from Nohachi, the left side because that was worst of the two, but the caster point was 5 mm more to the front. So my alignment was fooked but Nohachi couldn't locate the other one that easily.

- Sound deadening, it was way to loud for long long distance driving.

More things are needed but there was no time or money to change anything, and the ones above were paramount.


So after looking hard if I could get a set of AP racing brakes time ran out and it was quite clear a set of AP racing was still out of my budget.
Grp4 had a nice kit of Wilwood brakes: http://grp4fabrications.com/product_info...cts_id=918 so that was what I bought.

The kit:

Disc difference:

The only mishap making it not plug and play was the fact that the disc hit the arm, most likely because of the rca kit lowering it, so a bit of bashing was needed:

But besides that it is a nice kit.



Than I covered the floor with sound deadening, yeah I know its extra weight, but it still is my daily driver so it is going in.

The Cusco camberplate wasnt found in time so i had a base plate cut with the whole adjustment section moved 5mm back.
Unfortunatly the play on the right hand side was already getting worse so that wasn't very nice to drive around with in the uk and Wales to make an understatement. Angry
But at least I could have a quick alignment check before I went over so that would safe me from having to throw away my tires after a week.
No pics of the plate.


Every year we are going to the UK doing the Halloween tunnelrun, that requires a bit of dressing up the car.
This year we chose some camo theme with stickers, the camo was done with plastidip:

Wales, so many sweeping roads, tight twisties and spectaculair sights, super friendly people and shitty weather, awesome! Smile


Was it wise to make the skid plate?
Well yes, I lost count how many times I hit it:

I kinda like the camo, so I am leaving it on for now and maybe add some more, what do you guys think?

Some classic Welsh roads there and mostly the reason why I like to do road rallying, typically 150 miles of roads like those with a 11pm start and a 6am finish.
AE86 is a GREAT road rally car !
