EURO OG HOTBOI VISITS JAPAN


Hey Guys! You might have noticed that my Forum Username is Polderlife.. Well obviously that isn't my name and would be odd for you to all call me that during a conversation. My name is Tom! I'm from Emmen in the Netherlands, I'm 19 Years Old and have delved into the world of Drifting. Japan being the birthplace of the beautiful sport means I have to visit as part of my passage from Euro RWD to JDM RWD. I saved up enough to pick myself a nice AE86.. I say nice but its rough on the underside and has a battered engine. The fact there isn't an interior is also a big thing that made it cheap-ish..

It's a Kouki AE86 Levin Coupe... Fucking Mint!

I still paid $5000 for it, which is cheap but a lot of money at the same time, especially for me since I originated with banger E36's that cost me peanuts.
On the way back to my friends place where im staying, I noticed the engine misfired badly under heavy load on the expressway. Maybe a stuck injector? Maybe bad spark plugs? I don't really know but this engine is just a mixture of broken and random. The ride was smooth however and nothing else was bad. The rims are mint but ive sold those already to make some money back.

Ill show the car and continue my adventure with you guys soon!

Lucky find! AE86s are usually either rusted beyond repair or fully restored and way too overpriced. Yours looks in really good shape despite the few missing parts but hey, something to keep the price reasonable ;) Check the engine though, the misfire is very likely bad spark plugs or injectors, it happens if the car hasn't been driven for too long.

Some Progress!!

Sold the BBS, bought some really cheap S13 wheels, which were haggard as f#!k, gave em a quick sand, filler and sprayed em in Gloss Black. They look sick

Image

Also started to make some stickers! Started simple and made one inspired by the Anime Darling In The FRANXX.. *I have a connection with that show*.

Zero Two and my Darling 86 :D

Image

If anyone wants it, I can sell em haha. Lmk in DM

I am gonna start making some more soon!

That's all I have for now. I did fix the misfire, I diagnosed it to the Injectors, so got some new ones, also changed the spark plugs and HT leads while I was there. Also bought a cool HKS filter!

Finances:
$16,300
+$700 for BBS
-$200 for Injectors, Spark Plugs and HT Leads
-$180 for HKS Filter
-$200 for S13 wheels
=$16,520

$16,520 remaining

Yessss! S13 Wheels on Everything needs to be a thing. New trend for 2020? I do wonder.. AE86 wheels on S13? We should get the 86 and E36 together sometime!
