Kaboom Project #62 [KP62] & Toyota scrapyard
I started working on something, couple months ago. So to share with you .. Smile

It's not AE86 I know, it's too expensive here for my taste. But they will pop-up here and there Tongue

First of all quick history Big Grin
I've started late 2004. - early 2005. with AE82 GT.. in a poor condition. Boy meets world Big Grin

After few years working and learning mechanic with my friends, I've done bodywork, paintwork and lots of mechanic on it. So it shined and buzzed happily everywhere it could Smile

But every story must end eventually..: Sad This ended at late 2008 with crash, when young girl just learning to drive took my right to pass at intersection Sad

Kaboom Project #62 [KP62] & Toyota scrapyard
After couple of months being Dazed and confused (as Led Zeppelin sings it Big Grin), started to thinking of some nice project. First my aim was AE85 and conversion to AE86.. but something nicer poped-up - Starlet KP62

Before I bought any car, i bought working AE86 rear axle Smile
With this project started..

1 month later, I came across accidentally on KP60. And soon he joined me to, as a parts car Smile
