    We need to plan something better than toyotafest. I think it's just a waste of time for the whole day, stopping by for an hour or two and then getting the fuck out of there is way better.

    I'm balling on a budget. Someday when I get a good job I'll get one. HAHA. I'm trying to save enough to get myself to toyotafest again this year. And in a perfect world get suspension and wheels before then.

    Fluidampr is the way to go.. I had mine shoot out under the car and it was never seen again. I think I was pretty luck since I was bouncing off the limiter at the time.

    New Look / Same Poor Taste

    jzx in canada are so stupidly expensive for the x chassis. there some some gx's that are reasonable, and even the auto jzx are expensive. the market has spiked HUGE since imports to the USA have become legal. taking a lot of the moderate priced cars here and are nearly double and in US funds and most our older cars go south while these guys up here are making good money. most who own them still give up though and are horrendous looking.

    Did you like the look of it, or did it end up looking like ass? I would assume the differing body lines probably made it look weird

    As far as fresh importing goes, I'm kicking myself in the ass for not buying an x100 or two last year when I had the money, and just parking it in Japan. I've been wanting one since I was in high school and now it looks like I might never get one. HAHA. I need to go back to having a good job and no free time. Right now I've got tons of free time but a shit job and no money.

    I smashed mine with a hammer near the door and clearanced it for the door. But I put the whole front clip on. I planned to do the 1/4 cut of the fenders and never got around to it. I just drove it instead. In hindsight I'd never do it again. But then that was 10 years ago and JDMTyte was the thing. Now I'd just buy a JZX81. All I ever really wanted was the fender indicators and the projector foglights from the Mark II hard top. Now a days I like the other front ends more.

    Alright, things have happened. Imported GX81 Mark II fenders. Put them on to look at the differences between the X83 fenders. I remember looking at a thread Brian posted in a long time ago explaining how he molded the front of his fenders to fit his chaser corner lights. I plan on doing something similar. I'm gonna chop the front of the Mark II fenders and weld the corner light section onto the back two thirds of my USDM cressida fenders. As you can tell in the pics below, the rear portion of the Mark II fenders don't fit at all. The corner is way off, the body line is way off, and the door hits the edge of the fender. Another thing I didn't anticipate is the Mark II fenders and hood are taller than the X83 hood and fenders. If I use the rear portion of the USDM fenders and the Mark II hood that I'm eventually going to get, from either the russian con-man or the one I'll import, the hood will be taller where it meets the windshield. The body lines aren't gonna work period I don't think. You can't tell very easily in this pic, but there is a height difference in the rear of the hood. I'm thinking my chopping will go something like this: However I do it, it's a pain in the ass. I'm scared to chop shit up after spending too much money importing these damn things. Such is life.

    I should probably get a Fluidamper before even attempting to start my car.

    I learned nine years ago that when you do a JZ swap you change the harmonic dampner. Mine separated on the 1JZ in the MX83 about three hours from home. And of course you can't just walk up to the autozone and grab one. Much less change it in the parking lot easily. Lessons learned only once. So here the 2JZ was to soon reach its 25 birthday. Looked to have original dampner, pretty much original everything and "90,xxxkm" so now pretty much everything except the head gasket and oil pan gasket has been changed. Rebuilt the VVTi cam gear. It was definitely crusty and leaking. Glad we did that. Almost ready to go and soon to be back in the car. Need to do some wiring on the trans because the idiots cut the harness just before the trans. Go figure. Using a 3F410 and turns out the mechanical speedo cable plugs right in. Which is fantastic. Probably the best news I've had since this whole thing started. Was hoping to be driving the car on Mardi Gras but don't think it's realistic.

    @ChriSOL I'll look in to those hubs thanks. I thought the yard was near you but when I called them I realized they were in like North Carolina. Didn't realize there was a Dallas there too.

    @bigtoepfer send yard info if it’s local and i’ll check it out. re: your hub question, look on yahoo auctions jp for hubs that fit toyotas w the same spline. i found 2 nardi/personal hubs that are SOLID fucking metal that way, and they were dirt cheap.

    I like my Momo adaptor, but only fits Momo pattern wheels. They don't cost as much as a Works, due to there being more of them in the states. If you are planning to go quick release, most of the are dual pattern, so they would fit the Momo hub, and what ever wheel you have.

    ah yea. Expensive but I've never heard anything bad about them either.

    I assumed all the boss hubs were chinese. Thats what I have here. It works, just not for the horn. The NRG is used and was given to me for free. So its MEH it works and no problems with it. Never really found alternatives that weren't super expensive.
  27. WhoreMouth_Jr

    x3 oyaji wagon

    I'd avoid anything chinese, I tried that once and it rounded out taking my intermediate shaft with it. Boss Works Bell has always worked for me, but I guess it's different for the older x3s. Take this with a grain of salt cause I've always assumed NRG was trash. But recently I've been told their products are more solid. Maybe they are trying the Hyundai approach. Too late for me though I'll just always assume they're shit.

    I got an NRG adapter for my Personal wheel to a Momo hub. Neither style horn ring fit so I ground the shit out of the adapter until one of the rings could seat inside it. Granted, I did buy it in 2013 but I wouldn't be surprised if their parts were still shit.

    Hm, first steel flares I've seen that actually have a 3D formed outer lip & mount surface. Everything I've seen lately has just been flat steel sheet cut in a crescent, that the installer would have to do all the forming. Will take someone experienced with welding sheet metal, as it will want to pull as the weld cools.

    Anything for the same vintage Supra should work. Never used anything from NRG, just Momo, but people up here (that supposedly never come by any longer) have.
