Another AE86 Coupe Build

Postby truenorican » Tue May 24, 2016 4:29 am

I've own a couple of AE92s and previously picked up an AE86 SR5 shell but gave up on converting to a GTS because the prices for the individual parts are ridiculous. It was cheaper for me to buy a running true GTS than finish converting the SR5.

I sold off the shell and whatever parts I could from the failed conversion and now I have a GTS. It does have rust issues but oh well. I purchased this original GTS with LSD, BC Coils, T3 Panhard Bar, T3 Traction Brackets for $4,100 in December 2016. It also came with a TON of extra parts which I sold a few and made an extra $350, so car was about $3,750. It only came with one racing seat, so I went ahead and purchased two clean GTS seats from the PO's friend for $100.

I was trying to sell the GTS since I have to pay for a separate garage and no time but everyone wants to trade or low ball; so, I'm a just keep it for now and work on it as I can.

Here is how she's sitting right now:

Had to work on the ABS on the Mazdaspeed the other day, so I snapped a quick pic

Thanks! Your video build is a nice reference for mines. I'll be following yours for sure.

Everything went pretty smoothly install-wise. I'm trying to track down why my check engine light and charge light aren't turning on right now. More updates to come when I get time to work on it.
