 Project AE86 Reply  Edit


Its been a long time since I have been on this forum. I used to have a Panda 20v ae86 gts with many TRD parts.

here is a little pic of her with me driving, after restoring her from the second owner, I was the third

This one is with the original owner at initial D promo

and comi-con

I sold her, when I moved from Northern CA, to southern CA for school, as I could not keep so many cars at the time. And I was working on a mr2 turbo and was not ready to sell her. This is the mr2 now while still in paint, its missing some trim in this pic.

But I missed my ae too. So I just picked up this 1985 SR5 hatch, it had super clean interior, motor had BAD knock but who cares, its a 4ac... thats not staying in her! body is strait no dents at all, just a lil surface rust and sanded paint!


So Begins Project AE86!

here are some pics of the new AE86 I got for a great price!

My buddy and I attemped to driver her home from gardena 50 miles to my house... but the knock was so bad, we ended up towing her the last 35 lol

Some pics of her at her new home

interior, is in really good shape for a 27 year old car.


motor...not so much lol

the motor... not so much

But hey at least it came with its original manuels!!


I started to refurbish the rims, since they where grimmey and nasty looking.

Polished them out with some sandpaper and elbo grease.

then cleaned em up, washed them down, and put tire shine, and metal polish.

Before and after pics

Picked up some killer things, discounted!

I also meet LiveFstDriveFstr from our boards, he is a hella of a cool guy! We got to kick it some time!

got hooked up with these sexy monsters!

Time to upgrade, I dont think they will fit in 13 lol

I sanded down the rims, used some aircraft stripper, and primed the rims for new paint.

Here is how they ended up :0)


I have no idea what rims they are? if anyone knows please elaborate for me. I need to sell them too, since I will need bigger ones for my brakes.

I started working on the brakes. cleaning them up and prepping to be smoothed out and painted.

Tools of the trade

Grinding off the mazda badge


all grinded


used a wire brush on a wheel

some primer

and high temp paint


This is how it turned out all finished up.


Man so i could not borrow a car, lol so I ended up taking the mazda hahahha and packing it full of stuff. I was suprised how much I could get in her!

more junk

the old tailights, cracked and fogged up, missing the center trim

So I took out the tail lights, and started to swap them

That looks wayyyyyy better! Time to make a second set of LED panels for them... that is where I am at the moment.

had some fun today! put in a solex lock onto the trunk. attempted to make a CF hatch trim piece that was cracked and busted, and mounted up one of the CF doors, and threw the seat inside to see what she will look like

here is the lock

Making the CF hatch cover.
I had glassed it last night

started to get off the access bits

drilled out the holes

Some cool shots of Project ae86


Yeah thats where I got my solex locks from, I heard they are not that great. But at least any 1970's toyota key owner cant just open up my car and take it lol... so its sorta good to have.

I heard you can run mini cooper rotors, but I already had an extra set of 89 fc rx7 turbo rotors, I just need to get them redrilled at my machine shop.


got a steal again! koyo radiator for and xs intercooler for dirt cheap!


this is the factory sr5 tiny radiator.

I had to clean up the koyo, but she still looks good, just a few bent fines, that i can fix.

cleaning time

a little better but I need to get some more simple green.

ok got some updates, I sold my old rims, and got a new set of xxr522 with tires, that actually fits my brakes for the same price!

not my favorite rims, but I am still on the hunt for some watanabi or work meisters in 15.

I also got this, but its at my parents house in Norcal, waiting for me to pick up next time I visit.

also got a greddy bov adapter from my buddy xene :0)

waiting on my sr20det to get dropped off, then I can really start working on this beast.


I still need:

1) celica supra rear end
2) reddrill RX7 rotors to fit 4x114
3) custom drive shaft
4) make motor mounts
5) fog lights
6) HIDs
7) H4 headlights
8) paint car
9) intercooler piping
10) new exhaust
I think thats it....


so here are the rims I only spent 20 bucks on (since I sold my oem rims)

15x8 et0 with 195's ohhh yeah...

I can't lower the car down, and take better pics, till I get my tuner lugs in the mail.


cheap H4 housing, with H4 HIDs with halogen highbeam. I will use these till I can find a good set of raybrig for a good price.

Thanks guys!

Pholife- those new sticker will look great once I finish the car up!

Got a little bit done today, started tearing out some of the 4ac and seeing what I am going to do with it. It had rod knock real bad, so I think I will pull all the goodies off it, sell em for cheap, then recycle the block for scrap metal.


Alternator looks clean! that needs to go up for sale, and see what its worth...


Radiator is MINT too! no bents fins ??? that amazing! I wonder what they sell for?

Removed the battery, as I will be relocating it to the back. I need to cut out the battery stand to make it look cleaner

looks like it has a weber carb... not sure if thats aftermarket or oem... no idea what its worth either....? any imput would be appreciated.


This resivour.. is cool looking! love the oldschoolness

I remvoed the coolant overflow tank too, since it was cracked and ugly. I will make somthing cool for that as well.

No more radiator. I test fit the Koyo and it fits nice!

Decided to fix my bumper up. before the car gets sent off to paint.

Had some pre mixed fiberglass longstrand hair left from other projects.

here is how it looked when I got the bumper with the car.


cut on one side

Broken corner, and the whole bottom bit broken off

Cracks on many of the supports and just all over

started glassing the cracks

glassed the cut area

started to fix the edge and the underside

I will do some sanding tomorrow and see if I need to add more or just smooth here out.

Started playing with my mirrors too, since they where a bit banged up, I played some CF over them. I will need to trim it up, but it should look good with the matching doors.

As far as I know, if it's a Weber it's not OEM; definitely aftermarket



Cutting up an AE86? Please me know! I need body panels!
