Forgot about this, but UPDATE: Went to Brian's house and amongst our bullshitting discussions, we decided to test the roof and windshield angle theory. What we found was:


  Fr windshield = 33*

  Rr Windshield = 33*

  Roof height from door = 17-1/2"

Mark II:

  Fr Windshield = 33*

  Rr Windshield = 29*

  Roof height from door = 16-3/4"

Hm, doesn't make sense, since the side window deflectors from Japan have to be hit with a hot air gun, and tweaked a little to fit the MX83.


But the more slope on the rear glass, and 3/4" lower roof line explains the better look.

The side deflectors you are referencing are Cresta though, which are a totally different roof design than the Cressida and hardtop, so their windshield angle might be different as well.

I agree that the lower roof line and longer rear glass definitely help explain the hardtop's aggressive appearance.

dustin has a cresta.

My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

post-cressida jzxp is a fitting limbo for us to exist in. hell is a choose-your-own-adventure story and there are no "good"endings.

GFD this Zack dude is a fag here and IRL.

Anyhow, I guess this thing has been swapped and dailied for like 8 months or so. Finally had to do some shit, trans to bell bolts backed out. Trans started flopping. While it was out, I took an LHD Cressida subframe and modded it for RHD and moved the rack points forward 20 plus mm. Then stuffed a BEAMS in it. Lines up with the kouki subframe and stock trans mount and stock shifter relocated forward using the supplied holes in the trans to do so. Its wired 93%, just gotta add body plugs when I do it for good.

List left:
Buy radiator and fans

Buy driveshaft (measured already)

Wire body plugs to harness and ECU plugs to car

Coolant hoses

Put stock throttle cable back in

Make a/c lines

New hose for oil drain/PCV or whatever it is from head to block

Make subharness for DLC connector

Tach adapter

That being said, minimum to be bought is the three hoses and driveshaft. MAYBE next weekend, then another few weeks and hopefully I can buy the a/c lines, rad, and fans. Has a TRD header, HKS intake, and ORC clutch. After I get the list up there knocked out Ill move on to rear arms and subframe bushings, maybe build a PS and oil cooler, and call that a day.

Maybe it's a cultural thing? I mean, we saw the British coming. India, they did not.
