Help needed: firewall plates wanted
Some of you may have read this already on Instagram, I need information on the firewall plates of AE86s. The one I'm referring to is this plate:
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Help needed: firewall plates wanted]
(disclaimer, I already found this one online here...)
If you are willing to share yours, please send it via PM to me, along with the color of your car and interior. I will not share your plate anywhere without your consent and you can blur out the last few digits of your frame number.

The reason why is that I'm working on documenting all the differences between the various European and I need more information on what's on the European plates.

OK dude. Will have a look on one of my old backup discs over the weekend and see if there's photos of my old 86 plate anywhere. I don't remember taking any photos of the plate but I may surprise myself. I'm guessing that you're researching for a youtube video or something?

Thanks! Thumbs up!
No it's rather more as an addition/expansion for the AEU86 technical reference. I'm also now uploading scans of the brochures that I have: http://www.aeu86.org/ae86-brochures/
Of course, if you have any (scans of) brochures lying around, help with those is more than welcome! Tongue

In the end I might make a couple of videos about it as it's an overwhelming amount of material already Big Grin

Thank you very much!
I see I didn't catch the German accessories and French brochure yet and I suppose I have to give credit to Marty McFly for those two. Big Grin
Also the zenki Levin brochure is slightly different from the one that I own.

I have also managed to create a rough version of the Australian Sprinter brochure from the photos of the one on the rug:

Hopefully you've received a UK brochure. Sadly I don't appear to have ever taken any photos of my car's VIN plate though.

Same for me, all my pics aren't sharp enough to distinguish what's on the plate.
Current situation unfortunately prohibits me from checking it (ignoring the fact I'm 4500km away from the car).

Thank you very much! Thumbs up!
The model code of the second car ends with a G, which stands for the Federal Republic of Germany, which is Emissions in West Germany and that's meant for the cars with a catalytic converter. First of all: I wasn't aware of this extension as it normally doesn't show up in the EPC, second of all I wasn't aware of any 3 doors sold in Germany... Blush
So my question about this car would be whether it's equipped with AFM or MAP?

It's an AFM model. (charcoal canister, catalytic converter and EGR)
Funny thing, some of the stickers inside the hood refer to U.S.A and Canada for the emission control system.

But I guaranty it came from Switzerland.
Maybe AE86 sold in (German-speaking part of) Switzerland also got the G code ?
