We get some more work done on the AE86 but not without a bunch of distractions. Barry calls down to do some more metal work and Reuben gets carried away with fire.
In this episode, we paint some of my AE86 parts, we also learn about the Irish and UK spec AE86 Twin cam GT coupe. What a mouthful!
In this episode, we take a break from the Trueno and check out a V8 powered AE86. Flip also picks up one of his dream cars, an FC3s RX7 and we have a little fun with a Hyundai.
The AE86 loses more metal, gains some new metal and we have a BBQ. There’s also some cool stories about some of the donor metal.
We get the AE86 shell back from blasting and it turns out the rust is a little worse than we expected. Not to fear, a new character enters the series…
We take a visit to an AE86 parts graveyard to pick up some parts for the Trueno, we also check out a very unique collection of old-school Toyotas locked up in some sheds.
In this episode, we figured it would be the right time to explain my love for the AE86 and I sit Reuben down to give an explanation for the shed. A bit of a gift for reaching the 50k subscriber mark.
We drop the Trueno down to Ace Motorfactors to get the shell media blasted and show you some of the interesting machinery the owner has collected over the years.
In the final AE86 Trueno teardown video, we remove the back axle, strip the front subframe, the guys pitch in to remove the windscreen and I almost lose my mind grinding old stone guard off of the shell before sandblasting.
The AE86 loses more of its parts, almost being stripped of everything but the shell.
Things get a little “serious” with the Trueno, we finally start tearing it apart to get it ready for sandblasting, and as usual, we make things awkward. Enjoy…
Ok so this is the very final drive for the AE86 before it gets pulled apart but just before the big tear down we take two cars from the sheds out a photo shoot….
