CJ's AE86 project
Here is my project. As introduction I may say that i've owned the car for the past 3-4 years. I was particularly looking for ae86 and it was quite an adventure untill i finally found one. This is how it looked like when i bought it:

The first mod I ever did was taking off that huge cossie wing. Step 2 was removing the metal imitation of corner lights and installing real ones. I also did some refreshment of the body and the engine. Here are the results (pics taken 2-3 years ago):

This is the moment when the car looked the best, because after that i switched to "car abuse mode" Wink, or in other words - decided that it's time to get to know each other better. Wink Tongue Ever since that moment, it's been a real adventure to drive our "friendship" further ahead Wink (especially having in mind that i've never driven a RWD car agressively before).

Okey dokey, this is what i have done so far and what i intend to do in the near future:

BRAKES:
Front cross drilled & slotted rotors (italy custom made)
Rear cross drilled & slotted rotors (italy custom made)
Front brake pads: Mintex C-tech
Rear brake pads: Mintex C-tech

As you can see, at this stage i'm planning a N/A setup. I don't have any intetions of bulding a super-dooper drag monster or what-so-ever. On the contrary - i'm looking for a modest fun driving car Wink

One thing that makes it look odd at the front is the 'reverse' style paintjob on the bumper...
