Re: AE86 TopShelf build

Quick question I'll post here because I don't want to clutter up other threads. The rust on the rear passenger side quarter panel behind the door, does anyone make replacement sheet metal for that that I can weld in? No, you will have to find someone that is parting out a car, a junkyard that still...

Can you post a few pictures of the rose joint on the brake MC piston rod? I am really interested to see your placement and orientation on that!

Re: What kind of insurance do you have on your AE86?

Thanks a lot for this information... very helpful for me at least. Do you know what the average mileage limitations are? 1000 something miles? I went with what seems to be the standard 2500 mile limitation. I have put less than a thousand per year on over the last two years though. I believe you ca...

Re: What kind of insurance do you have on your AE86?

Insurance through a normal underwriter will value our cars at around $400, and if you have receipts for parts that are under 2 years old then you might be able to haggle for a small fraction of that as well. In 2007 I had a pleasant experience with Farmers where I had a heavily modified SCCA road ra...

Re: I am entirely new to imports need advice.

How about an frs drivetrain swap has that been done yet? The frame rails on the AE86 are a few inches to narrow for the FR-S/BRZ motor. You could make it work if you wanted to tube the front of the car, but I would only consider that for a car with light frame damage up front. What's not perfect ab...

You should be very concerned about rust in the places I mentioned. The worst places for it to get are #2,3,5. Mechanically it is like any other car.
