My AE85 Trueno Coupe From South Africa

Postby MIGGZFSU » Mon Feb 13, 2017 12:53 am

Hey guys

This will be my first post on here.

My name is Miggz and im from South Africa. I have been infatuated with the ae86 since 2006 and looked long and hard for one, but to get one here would pretty much cost the price of a single bedroom flat here. So could always look but never get hahaha. I knew of 3 here in Sa 1 being a panda trueno hatch and a drift levin all 1600+km away from me and would never sell, then heard of a silver levin ae86 that was somewhere around my province but heard if the guy would sell would be double what it would cost me to import so also a no deal.

So i would just build models of them, get the clothing and use the ae86 on what ever car game I played.

Then my mate with the panda told me he knew of someone that might know someone that knew someone else that might have a Trueno but it was a coupe and a 85.

So obviously i jumped all over that and started the search.

Got in contact with the people relevant and got some pictures of the car to find out it was a AUTO.... not a deal breaker and not a big deal either. Then i found out that these is a issue with the carbs and it would not drive so thought o well Ill get a trailer load up and come home

Here are some pics of the car.

The continuation....

So the seller accepted my offer and we got prepped to leave for our 1300km+- round strip

we left at 3am yesterday morning to go get

Image

Image

Image

stopped for some food...

Image

and off we go again

Driver: Qubitt
Back seat driver: Bennie aka peanuts
Passenger seat driver: Meeeeeeeeeeee aka Miggz

Image

some epic views

Image

Image

Image

Image

+- 8 hours later we were at the spot

Image

Image

Image

I was inlove....

So we paid the man, got the papers and loaded up quickly before he realized what he is giving away

Image

Image

Image

Drive back was stressful and crapping myself over every bump...

Image

We had to stop a few times because it was so hot that the pickup was getting a little toasty climbing the steep hills and huge traffic. O and some pee breaks after like 4 cans of monster.

Image


So we arrived to my mate Qubitts house offloaded and then said our goodbyes got in my car and left to go home and drop peanuts off as well.

The total time from leaving home and getting back was 18hr24m of being home....

next post will be what is next and what i plan on doing

Thanks for the views

Things ill be doing:

wanted to respray it black and white but after some thought maybe it would be more legit (for me) to keep it the original colour just give it a blow over and do the panda black on the parts.

Then i need to either get new oem stickers or just make them myself.

Make carbon fiber bonnet and boot. (make myself)

need a left hand side light lid and front piece.

Think this is a Zenki front bumper so need new lights for that as its cracked

Removing that boot spoiler and adding the small lip one

GTS side skirts

The Sunroof ill make a carbon one as well.

Then some japan racing jr19 wheels in 15" Need to figure out et and j

Coilovers... dont know what brand.

brakes ill do the fd front upgrade, rear ill make up my own thing.

I NEED A RHS FRONT WINDOW mine is broken

Interior:

Ill do cf non reclinable BRIDE buckets with black TAKATA harnesses and build my own cage again

do some gauges (would like the setup Takumi had.

Then motor im going for a 20v setup with management and keep it NA (got most of those parts)
