if it was me, id strip the x7 with all the problems and make one good and nice looking x7 with your nice jdm bits, and put all the powerful stuff and 5lug wheels and whatever into a x8 simple shell and do that. but thats me, also nice to change up the chassis and have a margin of variety. considering all the massive problems this chassis is having just being a car

As smart as reshelling to a newer better chassis would be, I think I'm just too far gone sippin that x7 koolaid.

 

I think the largest thing holding me back is the nostalgia, the interior just goes downhill for me in most other cars.  Even though I never fully reassembled mine, I love everything about mine.

I'm too indecisive and borderline broke to make up my mind. I've already said it 1000 times but the smartest would be to just jump in with the x8 subframe but I worry about small shit like it not fitting around the gastank, or having to heavily mutilate the chassis to get it in.  The z32 weld on option is gaining popularity in my head again haha.  Hey Gordo maybe since you told UPS to fuck themselves I can pay you to Make American I mean my car good again hah


 

why do we spend our time and money on shitty cars that cant love us back?

Nope, can't even finish mine......

 

Get a good set of shafts, remove any stress risers around the splines, and get them cryo treated.

Who knows, they just may survive a few more clutch kicks.

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.

Wow, that link sure got around fast....

 

OK, I've seen custom shafts for other cars, they run about $500 a pair.

If someone wanted to invest $$, to have 20 sets of X7 shafts made, out of a better material, and........

a larger spline.

Wait, custom shafts for a forgotten car ?

Never happen.

 

But, lets just say someone was that stupid, say like schlammie stupid, and did it.,

This problem would be 50% fixed.

Really really starting to miss driving the car.  Still waiting on the dude from Canada for the z32 parts. Gonna give it a couple more weeks then try and start sourcing all the parts myself.

 

If in v8 land is still going good. Took it to a couple more events with really no issues.  Swapped the stance stuff I got from Hesh (seriously thanks again for the deals!) Car feels a lot better on the road. Sold the BCs off it for almost enough to fund a shitmotion r154 rebuild kit.  Which ultimately what we are trying to do with our extra r154 (Thanks again HESH!! haha.) Really no complaints with that car.  Slowly working through the little shit that isn't working that bothers me, but ultimately shouldn't Just little shit.

 

Currently trying to fix a 1uz x8 harness my buddy got made for him.  But the harness is all kinds of wrong.  The engine to ECU stuff looks right.  But pretty much everything between the car and the harness/ecu is wrong.  Fuel pump/starter never would have worked.  He wasn't using the plug by the fusebox and was trying to power everything from the b3 plug (from the start pin actually) Also the dude used the wrong pins for the ecu connectors so they wouldn't lock in the lock even when the connector is in the locked position?? I could rant forever about this harness, ultimately feel bad my buddy and most likely other people paid for a harness from this guy and not only was it not gonna be PnP but the quality in general was pretty low.
 

Working on that has got me back in the mood to do stuff though hah.  Hoping I can finish the harness with some extra motivation and tackle other projects for the white car that I've been putting off.  Mainly the vacuum pump garbage I wanted to try to see if it would fix my heater issues. As well as wiring in the switch for target boost control and the clutch switch for two-step retardness. 

 

Anyways wall text so heres an old picture and a picture of the harness for no reason:
