    Hay guys been on the sight for a while now never really posted much um just a browsing sort of guy lol
    Have my ae86 for over 5 years now and had some fun in it over the years! It isnt really what you would call a drift car but I try to attend some track and drift days in it when I can

    It started out like this

    Then I done it two tone as I love the red and black

    [​IMG]

    It didnt change much after this just a few little things like wheels and spot light arrangement

    [​IMG]

    The paint started to get a little tired and a couple of bubbles appeared here and ther so made a big decision

    Awesome work! I love 86's, unfortunately here in italy you will never be able to find one. Question: how is it called the stand where you can turn over the car? thanks

    Thanks for the comments lads! The ukdm had the arial on the passenger side they also have the side repeaters on the wings and the side lights are early spec uk ones which were black instead of amber as thers no indicator in them

    It's called a roll over jig or a spit they can be made up up pretty handy if you have welder and a lot of box steel
