Between us, we've owned more than a handful of AE86s, some we've held onto, and others sold off. This blue one, as rough as it is, has... "potential" - it's one of those diamond in the rough kind of shells we had to keep. It's an Australian delivered, non sunroof, pov pack AE86.
How it looks, is exactly how we got it 5 years ago; bare, no running gear and rust included. As you can see the radiator support is missing, why? We're not sure, maybe the last owner had the same crazy ideas we have for it.
RUST, RUST, and more RUST! At this point any sensible person, would just give up and find a cleaner shell, but that would be too easy, right ?
The shell has been booked-in to get soda blasted this weekend! Once done, we'll have a better idea on the work required.
