Glad someone likes it pack Smile

To continue the project thread.

Me and my girlfriend moved in together in the next town over so I thought it would be a good idea to change garage as well.

The AE86 in my little corner in the new place.

Didn't do much to the 86 that year more then do a bunch more driftdays! Big Grin

Then I went down to the Netherlands and picked up a new engine for the 86 Smile

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

As you can see I chose to go down the popular BEAMS route.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

So I started tearing down the car for the swap but at this point as was having serious doubt if I could pull of a swap in that crap house of a garage. The guy who showed me the place was just talking bullshit it turned out.

One of my friends summoned up the place quite accurately:
F: "Oh! So this is the place."
Me: "What place?"
F: "The place where cars and projects come to die..."

And that's when I decided to move to another garage and luckily there was a perfect place available, it only had to be built first, by me.

So here are some pictures of the progress for the new garage.

The first time we looked at it.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

That took a lot of time to get done! All autumn, winter and spring. But the work was worth it in the end.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

Move in day! Big Grin

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

Started getting to work straight away with tearing down the diff to see what was wrong with the LSD. It had been acting strange the last drift days I did.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

Pulled it apart completely and could find nothing wrong with it :/. So I cleaned it up and put it back together.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

Then my buddy who I share the garage with moved his car there.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

And I bought a FRP front from Max Force Ready. Already had FRP fenders, hood and hatch from XTR.

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - Krullibulls Ae86 BEAMS is the only way]

Drove the 86 as my daily during my vacation and the LSD started acting up again! Angry. Was quite pissed about it until I did some research and found out that I had been using the wrong oil all these years Banging headBanging headBanging headBanging head

I've been using Castrol 75w-140 LSD oil. It seemed like a good choice when I picked it up with my mechanic friend since it was for BMW M models, AMG and Datsun GTR. Surely that would be good enough for my 86.

Switched to Redline 75w-90 and the rear end has never been better! Hurray!. The LSD behaves as it should and it's even quieter then before.

Since everything was working and I had some tyres left I did some driftdays this summer aswell.

So now we're up to today. Just prepared the 86 for inspection. It's not a huge task since all I need to do is put the backseat in and change the 4-link to stock ones since I don't have dust covers on the rosejoints.

It was supposed to be this easy but out of nowhere the fueltank started leaking. Did a temporary fix on it, just so I can get trough the inspection.

If I get through the inspection it's 2 years until the next one since the car is so old. As the rules are today over here there is basically no chance of me getting it legal with the BEAMS engine, so this will probably be the last inspection ever for this car.

Sweet garage! A whole lot better than the place I'm currently in... I think that is more comparable to the first one you had to deal with. Wink
What is the issue with registering the Beams engine? Are the rules in Sweden strict about the engine/car combination?

1982 - TA60 Carina 4dr sedan - fun cruiser
1983 - AE86 Sprinter Trueno - import project
2013 - Honda Civic sport - daily driver
2004 - AEU86 dot ORG - daily domain

Yea it turned out nice. The landlord at the new place is wonderful aswell and a all out car nut. So there's 13 000m2 of cars and parts in that building Smile.

The first one was actually really good. Perfect size for a AE86 but with apartments above it so I was limited in what I could do there.

Funnily enough the car is too little modified to have the BEAMS. A 10% Hp increase is no problem at all. As a second option you can register it as a modified vehicle which means that you have to swap 3 of: Engine and/or Gearbox, Front suspension, Rear suspension/axle and Brakes.

Only thing is that you have to keep it 15kw/100kg and that could be hard. There is a motion to increase it to 20kw/100kg now so I'm hoping that will happen in the next 2 years so I can get it legal.

Or a third option is to go all out and make it a spaceframe car and register it as a new vehicle.

I hope I am wrong, but is that cooler fan not designed to blow air as it sits? It should suck air into the engine bay.

Bit of an update. The car passed the inspection without any remarks Smile.

So I've taken the engine and gearbox out of the car now.

Was surprisingly easy to remove the engine and gearbox. I needed less tools and time then my garage friend needed to remove his rear axle from his old Ford.

So now the real work can begin Wink

And I also fixed the way too big pictures previously in the thread.

A small update. Got some work done this weekend too. Just need to disconnect the fuel lines at the tank then I can start stitch welding the engine bay.

So much nicer to work when the car is clean Smile

Nice project! And I'm really jealous you can change the engine legally even if it comes with certain conditions.

We can't do that... I've just sent an inquiry to the local Toyota dealer and they told me I can only drop in engine that has the same code and kw output and if I wanted to change the chassis for less rusty one, the first 8 digits of both my car and the donor's VIN must be identical
