Been slacking with the updates here. If you all have been following this build, I am sure you will not find it surprising. If anyone has not seen already, I have posted 2 newer videos for this build. The first video covers more bodywork content, where I prep the doors and trunk lid for a couple layers of epoxy primer and high build primer. Sanding sucks, but there is a technique to the madness. With those panels finished, the hood is the only panel remaining!
Video two covers repairing and restoring AE86 tail lights. Originally, I was going for a smoked look, but ended up with a different result, which I think actually turned out better than my original vision. Restoring faded and scratched up tail lights is an easy process, it just takes time and patience. Anyone can do what I am doing, so do not get scared taking sand paper to those tails! I also show a cheap way to repair actual chips and cracks in the lenses. It only costs a couple bucks and if done right, can look pretty much identical to the original lens.
To all that have subscribed to the channel so far, thank you very much! The channel just rolled over 500 subs and is gaining a bit of traction, which is super exciting. I really hope these videos offer something to you all, and help with the many problems us AE86 owners run into, working with these old rusty money pits hahaha. In the videos I try to do things right, even though I am learning too as I go. So if anyone has any suggestions, constructive criticism, or comments in general on the videos or project, please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment. Thanks again, the build is inching toward the finish line! (bodywork wise hahah)
