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.
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.
The AE86 gets its final drive before being torn down for some much-needed restoration, we also take a look at our friend Rob’s import business.
Things get serious on the AE86, we start pulling the interior out to challenge the final Spiders, our French friends arrive for some skids and fireworks and we make some limited Spidey Cunts stickers!
Progress on the AE86: We start stripping the Truenos sound deadening and remove the cage. It’s not long before we are distracted by an upcoming drift event at a local racetrack.
So there it was, a lifelong dream holiday done and dusted. For our last night in Tokyo and we decided to make our way down to the Sega Joyopolis to check out the Initial D game, afterward, we grabbed a few beers and hit the beach to reflect on the madness we had witnessed over the last two weeks.
After a night of madness on the docks, we woke to a familiar Irish sight, a soggy grey morning. Regardless of the weather, there was a shop that had been on the hit list for a very long time and I was incredibly eager to check it out before our trip came to an end. Tec Arts has been around for a long time and is a very familiar name in the 86 world. They primarily deal with AE86’s these days but are known to have built some very cool cars over the years.
After a quick bite to eat and a shower, we were back in the van. Burnt from a day of walking the city looking for a battery we didn’t let that dampen the mood. We were hungry for some night action and had heard about an All that Low meet which was happening at Daikoku.
Tokyo would be our final destination on the road trip, I was a little sad knowing this once in a lifetime adventure was coming to an end, lucky for us we were staying in Tokyo for three nights and had the Van which would give us the freedom to explore the surrounding area. Butterflies grew as we edged closer to the beast.
