Project Update: K24 AE86 Part 2

We’ve made tons of progress on the K24 AE86 build since we last left off (Check out Part 1 HERE), so let’s just jump right into it! The owner originally wanted a full TRD N2 aero kit, but was having difficulty sourcing one from Japan.  The ultra rare Crystal Body Yokohama full aero kit was selected as suitable alternative thanks to it’s aggressive, stylish design and its functionality with a built-in splitter and ducting in the front bumper!
