Getting Ready For The Season

Over the last few months I have been collecting parts. First thing that needed my attention was the transmission as I bent a shift fork back in December and haven't really driven the car since. With thoughts of preventative maintenance I have decided to upgrade my transmission to a w58 from a Supra. To do this requires some custom pieces I am still obtaining. Once the swap is complete I will do a thorough write up; for now here is a short list of the required pieces:

W58 from a Supra
4age Bell-housing
Sam-Q 4age to w58 swap kit
A 200mm or 212mm custom clutch for w58 splines (4age clutch disc and w58 splines)
Ae86 pressure plate
A custom cross member to suit the w58
A custom driveshaft or possible connecting of w58 front half shaft to ae86 rear half shaft

In addition to upgrading the transmission I have purchased a body kit. I have an incredibly refined taste in everything ae86 and especially visual parts such as body kits i have my preferences. I have decided to go with a goodline (muscle bear) style front bumper, and run free side skirts and rear bumper; all fiberglass replicas as buying authentic would be a waste of money once the body kit gets damaged drifting at the track. I am making custom bash bars and brackets to hold the bumpers and a small write up will come for that too once the kit is mounted.

The last thing I have to do is weld the exhaust back on as it broke off at the last event as well. And I'll pick up some good tires for the front to last through next season. Stay tuned and thanks for reading. Here's a nice picture of me running tandem with another coupe someone snapped at the last drift event.
