DIY AE86 Tail Light Repair - How To Fix Cracks and Restore

Postby EvoSolley » Mon Jul 31, 2017 11:39 am

In this video, I repair and restore my old stock tail lights for the AE86. The goal was to get them as close as I could to a set of JDM tails, given the difference in the physical lights. I also attempted to repair physical chips in the lens, with a 2 part epoxy and paint before restoring. The final result was not exactly what I had in mind, but I was super excited with how they turned out! Anyone can do this project, it just takes some time and around $30 - $40. Goodluck and I hope this video helps some of the DIY'ers out there!
