My AE86 and KE70
2 years ago I went looking for a clean, unmodified, low milage Jap car to do this. A uk car came up and I couldn't say no to it - 80k miles, full toyota service history from day one, all mots, original receipt/warranty, unmodified and it was a very good price.
I bought new from Toyota - 2 rear quarter panels, drivers door, sunroof, boot, front bumper, rear bumper, fuel lid, outer wheelhouse panels, rear lights and centre section. second-hand front wings, Levin grill, Jap heater unit, Jap speedo/tach unit.
The car was taken apart and every bit of rust was removed and repaired properly. The shell was sprayed Toyota Super II white and rebuilt.

That looks very nice, I really like what you've done. Its fairly similar to what I would have done with mine If I'd had the money.

When I saw the registration it really bugged me because I knew it from somewhere but I couldn't remember where I'd seen it. So I just went through my JAE photos and found it. Infact the car was parked behind mine at the show that year. When you bought it was there still a grey door with diagonal stripes across it on the driver's side?
