Archive pic: Back when my zenki #AE86 was running weaker sizes of #RSwatanabe wheels; 14x7.5J up front and 14x8J -6 rear. Back then, #rsワタナベ wheels were A LOT harder to find in the USA. Also, the car looked high cause it was sitting in kg/mm 7.0/5.7 springs with #TRDJapan short strike adjustable shocks. Handled well, but sat way too high. #CipherGarage #86LIFE #86FEST #TOYOTA #willowsprings #TRD #5zigen (at Willow Springs International Raceway)

I think most people don’t realize that two of my AE86s are TWINS. The 1985 zenki on top has original paint and USDM sidemarkers on the rear quarterpanel, but my 1986 kouki has shaved rear sidemarkers and was repainted with lacquer paint by an exotic car restoration shop. They had to smuggle the paint in from Mexico because lacquer is no longer legal in CA because it damages the ozone layer… But it sure does make the car look shiny AF! 😍😍😍 I need to get coilovers for my kouki so I can lower it more and put different tires on it.
