Hello You Beautiful People !

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies and Gentlepeeps,

My name is Pete and i`m an alcoholic ...... no , i`m not, i am new to this site.

I have an 86 AE82 GT what i have just bought . i`ve bin after one for a while and its been bought to bring back to better than new.

I need loads of advice and will be stripping the words out of the forums for a while , but for the moment i need a front pipe ....any suggestions as to where to go?.((don`t !!)

I am going to completely replace the exhaust with a free flowing system (stainless) .... if i can find one i may just do that .....replace the lot , but a downpipe would do for now.

Anyhow .....Greetings to all of you !!!! must go, Nursey will be back soon.

Nice looking car - looks nice and tidy :thumbsup: !

I don't have a clue about car's apart from how to drive them (quite questionable) and where to put the diesel :lol: !

Some people will be around later and give you some advice :thumbsup: !

you should be able to get a front pipe from any good motor factors, but hold your breath and sit down cos i had to pay £75 when i had the 4A-ge in the rolla. trouble is that most aftermarket performance systems dont come with front pipe so your kinda stuck.

your car looks immaculate by the way, one of the cleanest 82's ive seen in a while.

what sort of areas are you looking at for info?

cheers and welcome

Hi Lee,

I suppose the main thing is sourcing parts .... ball joints ... track rod ends, bushes etc , i want to replace the lot.

I`ll need advice along the way i spose , but i am a time served mechanic .... i

do know my way about ....i loved it that much i became a session drummer !!!!

Do you know if a quick-rack is available ( steering , not roof lol )

Need some front wings too .

Leda are making me some suspension units up from the original patterns.

Need some nice 15"wheels.

Got my exhaust made up ....just need an extractor manifold now ....gulp !!

Thanks for the reply ....sorry for the delay in getting back.

Cheers,

Pete.
