Memory Lane

Shaun messaged me yesterday to invite me to check out the work he has done to my old AE86, and since the exhaust is due to be finished next week, we might as well take it for a test drive. It's been 6 years since the day I heard Shaun drive it away hitting the rev limit in every gear. So, I'm guessing it will be a ruthless test drive. Anyway, I'll post up what the car looks like now. I originally bought the car to use to learn how to work on cars. I was determined to do everything myself, and no task was too large, and man did it teach me a lot. At the start I only knew basic car maintenance, and by the time it was complete, I had learned bodywork, hot to build a custom hilux diff, rebuilt a 4age engine, installed s13 front suspension, built a complete turbo system including an ecu. I had so many stories and had learned so much. I will always remember practicing in the small hours through industrial roads known by our crew as "the block", and returning from a late night session with mud tucked up under the rear bumper in the same place as a friend's 180sx where we both ended up in the same ditch. So, looking forward to it. Should bring back some memories. Here's the inspiration for my original build, plus check out some photos of how it looked 6 years ago.
