Had the car about year and since then I have slowly started to restore it.

This is how it sits now and still looking for some more parts but most of the assistance was from Herb at Cabe Toyota:



some interior shots


engine - all stock with ps and ac

^Thank you very much.

Good Repro zenki decals will be put on soon and gray gts dashboard with gray vents; able to track down a window sticker for the car so will have for my record....other than that will continue to get clean and cleaner parts if possible.

15x7.5 negative 5 all around; ssr caps in storage too scared to roll with them.
The wheels were redone with pwrcoated faces and chrome bolts and polished/clear lips. Wheels were bought from infinitwheels.com

One of the cleanest almost showroom 86's I've seen in some time. Not to sound like a product whore but I recomend www.Griotsgarage.com for getting it more shiney and keeping it that way. Best product I've used and isn't loaded with man made chemicals and strippers. And their orbital is awesome. No more accidental burned paint :)

Man, that GTS is gorgeous. Perfect color scheme, and the interior is imaculate. Wheels are perfect too. 8)

Very, very nice. :tu:

that's really clean!
i'm so tired of seeing stripped out AE86's - it's refreshing to see one with a full interior & stock motor so clean you can eat off it :tu:

I appreciate the POSITIVE comments and for the tips.

I am always learning so im kinda like a sponge. Yeah I am trying to keep it like back in the day 80's so I am resisting putting modern in it and retaining that double knob alpine tape deck. LOL

It is my daily driver so I cannot get too crazy.

Then again I got no moola.
