Full restoration...
Hello I'm Marco from Berlin, Germany

im a silent reader for a long time

and now its time to make a "project-thread" here

I have a topic in the new member areal but here is the full story:

I bought my Levin in 2009 by a friend, he has stripped the car but could finished the work, he asked me, and on this day... it was mine.

my plan was from the begin on, to make a full restoration and make ALL new...

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Full restoration...]

the car was in good condition, but it has here and there some rust, but it was all not irreparabel

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Full restoration...]

the first what I maked

the axles were are sandblasted and powdercoated

then was the chassis sandblasted

after that I painted the basic epoxi coulor

and now was the car ready for the "realy work", the bodywork
it goes to a professionel bodyworker
