    Curse of the Cressida

    update time: been busy with home renos of our laundry room, pantry and closet, lots to do and have baby on the way so trying to get all this done before she comes end of July. Cressida. I added a power steering cooler and s14 resevoir. currently the pump still sounds louder than it should be even after a lot of bleeding. not keen on this but its functioning. Civic. Put summer wheels on, lowered it 10mm in the back and 5mm in the front, this photo is not great but overall looks a ton better. The bum was a little high after removing weight hence the difference in heights. D21. Swapped tires front to back and changed its oil, putting insurance on it shortly and may put a bed in the back to sleep in it instead of camping during May long. S13. I put it outside so i can work on the Supra. garage has been full of house stuff for a bit and the jobs i need to do on this are lengthy ones and weld grind paint ones and id ratehr get the supra to a state before baby. Supra. put it in the shed yesterday and got the M ready to be pulled minus the exhaust manifold and mounts. leaving it like this for a little bit while we do the floors in the house as i need the storage for house stuff. should be a good long weekend to take the M out, prep the jz and slot it in..then all the futzing about and detail work.

    might have to look in to it. Guess it depends on the length and spline count.

    Will Thunderbird turbo coupe axles work in the explorer rear end? Those were 4x114.3

    I'm trying to figure out the most cost effective way to stay 4 lug on the 8.8 and it's looking like just redrill

    hoe lee cow, thats some kind neglect! guess we are all fucked with rising car prices and how ppl see them as valuable or something instead of a donor

    ^ I started doing a highway blow-dry after I wash my car at home now after getting sick of wiping down hard water spots. Dust makes me wish all my cars were white or silver. Or dust colored to begin with Man I loved the SSRs on this car. But I also like pretty much every ugly wheel from the 90s with more than three spokes. Panas look great as always though

    Same here. The clean, all original LS's are now 3-5k territory. If you're lucky you can still find one for two thou. Which to me is still madness as I felt like the 1000 I paid for mine in 2013 was still too much. Earlier in the winter, we picked these up for an outrageous 1500 and 700, respectively, and they're both beat. The LS appears to be some kid's failed VIP project, complete with galaxy print door panel inserts, sheet metal rear flares that I've torn off by hand, and Amazon's Choice coilovers. The engine runs flawless and will be swap fodder for my friend's AE71. The GS appears to have been driven from the original owner's summer property straight to the ghettos of Springfield, MA, where it received eBay headlight assemblies, purple windows, subs, stick-on gel wood texture interior trim package, and G35 wheels instead of a timing service.

    That engine probably shits enough of its oil back into the pipes to keep the inside walls well coated

    Chitown WaGN....project from hell

    i know! i think it'll be the perfect vibe. i scraped the cosmoline off my index mill and coated the pipes with it, should hold up long enough for the air filter to suck in a puddle i keep looking at it. i can keep my 4 lug weld draglites. ill go through your thread and see what yer up to. i could probably 3d print a rear axle stronger than the 7.1" toyota rear i have

    damn ya hell. how many monies do these donor type cars go for down yonder? i was playing with the idea of getting a vvti 1uz for my d21 as the KA has lived a few lives and i want to put it to pasture. locally even the first gen LS400s, the ol $500 tops cars are going for 3-4k here now

    SSRs, my kind of ugly.... Anyway, that is one thing about black, dust seems to stand out. Too bad windshield wipers won't clean the whole car, or maybe you don't drive it fast enough...

    I’m on the look out for a RWD model with dual sunroofs and a rear wing. Only the RWD models had the dual sunroofs as an option in the US, and the OEM wings still sell for 300 used since Toyota still sells them new for 1100. So I’m just going to buy a van with both, swap the roof skins and frames, and the rear hatch with the wing and sell the parts van with the old roof and hatch and for what I bout it for.

    Yeeaaaahhh Previa! Needs a roof wing.

    So I lowered my blue NA Alltrac and threw some 18” G35 wheels on it. One of the fenders was damaged, it had a little rust starting by the rear wheel wells, and the rear lift gate had a big dent above the rear glass so I started looking for a parts van. I found one with a vague description for sale that looked like the parts that I needed were straight so I went to check it out. It turned out it was a near mint condition Supercharged Alltrac with a blown head gasket. So I fixed the head gasket and sold the blue van. I then found a good deal on a set of 17x8 high disc +32 Front and low disc +24 rear with 245/45/17s. Threw them on the van and the offset is perfect and will give me room to put the big brake setup I want on the van in the future. Then I lowered the van 3” on RSR super down springs until I’m able to order some HKS coilovers. But I’m waiting to do a IRS swap out of a TRC21 Estima. And when I tried to order a set shipping was 1400 from Japan. Over the next week I’m going to be setting it up to run my mobile detailing business out of. Will be installing a water tank, power washer, compressor, a larger output alternator, and possibly a driveshaft driven alternator in the dear future.

    mark ii got some fresh air last night. now that i live in the sticks, it gets super dusty really fast. i bought a oem mark ii roof spoiler for a lot of money because i always wanted one. also swapped the panasports from the cressida on it. i think it looks way better, restoring those SSRs was a mistake. they're just ugly.

    Yeah, while Australia was pretty good with COVID, we had to be isolated to the baby ward. im lucky and I have private health cover for my family so it was like a holiday stay. but stupid me did not understand/register when i was packing clothes i just packed clothes to suit people coming to see the baby, not the consent 36c degrees or what ever it was and no clothes to sleep in or wear other than jeans and tee's been good after though, even though we had to wear masks etc and was locked down to a 5km radius for the start. i have done my best to show her more then just the house. also helps living on 32 acers.

    Mine just turned 9 months old three days ago. Seeing as he started the manufacturing process about two months before anyone in China had ever heard of Covid I wouldn't call him a covid baby. But he has definitely started life in the thick of it. Was wild going to the hospital in the middle of everything. Really sucked that my wife had tickets to fly to Japan to have the baby set to depart three months before the due date. But her flight was cancelled. So we suddenly had to start making plans to do everything here.

    Yeah, my daughter was born almost 11 months ago to the day, so she is a COVID baby, and was born during lockdown here in Australia.

    I'm currently working on putting an explorer 8.8 in my wagon. Seems to be the go to for most people.

    I totally understand the doing things before baby bit. Especially when I was sitting at home for a month or two during quarantine not working and waiting the last couple of months for a baby to pop out. I am gonna shoot you a message I want to ask a question about the front end.

    So I finally made the decision on an axle, picked up an explorer 8.8 with 3.73 gears and positrac. Today we were working to cut off all the old mounts and clean it up to get ready to put on the new spring perches. Just incase anyone was interested in if I am still working on it or not.
