  1. Today
  2. Just made a post about how I picked up a jzx81 roller. It's missing a few crucial things for it to be a car that can be comfortably driven on the road such as a 4 door trims and weatherstripping. Just want to see if anyone has any available before I go searching YJP. I need the seals for the door, the ones the glass presses up against when the door is shut and the one behind that on the cabin frame.
  3. Haven't really contributed in a long time but figured I'd basically throw my dick on the table to show you what I've been up to. Had my Mx83 since 2008, before that was my Mx73, god rest her soul. Drove the x83 stock with w58 from the x7 till it broke. Slightly revived it to just get rod knock drifting it in my friends yard. Recently I've started importing cars. Bought a nice GX100 Mark II, it was cheap and got great mpg. Sold it and now have a Honda Stepwgn (oh no stepbro I'm stuck) on the way. In the meantime a 94 Mark II van I ordered for a friend came in. A YX78V. It's pretty cool. It's also 5spd. In two weeks a JZX100 Mark II will come it. It will be my first ever jzx car with an actual JZ in it. I say that because I just picked up this 90 Mark II JZX81 roller for less money than MX83s are going for. Trying to decide what to do with it. Was about to build my x83 into a drift car, now I'm thinking of doing that with this. Or just keep the x81 as a parts car and order one from japan. Thoughts?

    JZX81 Engine to Body Harness & Gauge Cluster Connector Pinout

    Is the B3 the only connector that is different between a mx83 and jzx81?

    Want an X8, with a sick 2JZ, partially finished, missing parts, questionable workmanship? And it's only $27,000!! Another unfinished X8 on eBay.
  9. Good luck, I've got a complete car that I couldn't get 300 for. So it's just rotting away in the blazing sun.
  10. You just don't see them for sale anymore at all. They're basically gone. I'm going to sell my old shell soon and I can probably get $1500 for it at least.
  11. An '89 X8 on eBay: 89 X8 in San Antonio Here in San Antonio. Not mine. Looks unmolested. Way too much money, someone found a deal, and flipping it, trying to make a huge profit...

    I have an IRS F series rear end. you have the older GA6/X7 and the IS300 TRD diffs available but they are discontinued. So getting one is hard I should add mine came with a 4.3 gear ratio and that should make it a little more fun with the NA.

    So been a little lazy due to the cold weather.Still have the target of having it driveable by December. Pref the Japanese car show in early December, but if I miss that, the PF XMAS party.Updates are,all sensors have been purchasedThe airbox has been purchased, i still need to work out a way so the linkages don't hit the boxpurchased TRD 2 Way LSD.all prototype metal is being re-cut out of 3mm as i found the 1mm was not that great and re-designed the heater tap mount.purchased rubber for fuel tank straps,Created Google retro speaker https://www.facebook.com/CISCOKIDSAU...77943153884800 still needs some fine tuning, waiting on parts.next steps,once all metal is back, i will drop it all off at the powder coaters to get blasted/painted and start fitting it all.Problems,i think the change to Motec M130 might have been an issue as i might run out of inputs with the DBW ETC, but I will wire up all the essential things first, and whatever is left, i will decide on a case by case bases.
  15. Starting to smell like sauerkraut around here...

    Love the CRT. I've got 4 CRT TVs and one computer monitor now that I use as a second display. Nothing like playing old consoles on them.
  17. Sold this turd almost two years ago after almost crashing it. Been building a 2007 M35 for a while, recently got it running. It should be running like OEM if I can get some sort of canbus system to communicate with the AEM Infinity. Full interior, AC, Adaptive headlights, and AC cooled seats. The goal is about 400whp, nothing crazy just a good challenge to build. I had a 2020 Civic Si Sedan I had sold for almost what I paid for it thanks to this crazy car market and got this sweet ass E55. It makes tons of power, 4 doors, sunroof, and big ass brakes!

    My Couch Pulls Out, I Don't: The Resurrection

    I prefer my tractors green, not orange, but they'll do. The other one is on the floor. Just did a quick mockup with my cheap rails, which makes my head hit the ceiling with a helmet. Time for some custom fabbed low mount brackets... YJP actually had a few pop up, which is surprising.

    it'd probably shrink or peel off with the heat. I'll end up getting them hydro dipped or painted and getting the weld valley cover

    what would make the most sense in your scenario is to paint it black, get pre made vynil of the colours (im missing the orange lines) and then apply them. when not feeling it no more, its still black after you remove the vynil

    Curse of the Cressida

    I don't have the patience for that. I assumed it would have been cut vinyl, paint the base, lay out vinyl, paint, lay out vinyl, paint, lay out vinyl paint, etc etc etc for every layer. Hand cut sounds like a gigantic pain in the ass. Good on you.

    Hks file? That's all paint my dude. I think I did green, purple then black then flake in clear then clear. I hand cut the tape to apply, staggered them...really should have looked more at the photo as I did it incorrect. I'm still happy with what I did but it could have been more fun and wild..but I like how simple it is. It really pops when I open the garage door so mission accomplished. I did a Jun coloured one for the civic, silver green and yellow in the same splash graphics. Richard Rabe has got to be the best at the hks livery painting though. I plan to do a zebra paint job on the 1uz covers. I'll see how that goes. Got a plan in mind for that already

    Curse of the Cressida

    i took some time away from cars after the tents fell down on the cars. i have since sold what remains of the tents for $150 and am getting a quote from a guy who does metal enclosures. its been a few weeks so im not holding my breath he makes it any time soon. been busy being a dad and have little time for garage activities, however motivation was at an all time low as my garage was full of non sense and my cars kept needing maintenance and not "fun stuff." first thing was to sort the garage and shed at the same time so a lot of back and forth. shed is still a catch all but all items are useful still and what junk is in there is temporary. sold a bunch of stuff from in there and tidied up a bunch, put some tools in there for easier access. garage as of a couple days ago. sold the bike, put the boards in the shed after I sold the air scrubber and removed the motor from the lexus. this back corner is a bit of a mess with all the drawers. it was organized until i added this rather large sony Trinitron. i have been after one for a while for my old game systems and this was free, took nearly 3 months to get as they live on a remote island and only come to this island once a month. for whatever reason i had been hooked on these old style of Trinitron as it has a lot of inputs in the back and my uncle had one when i was younger and just always wanted one...seemed to pair perfectly with the sony playstation...nostalgia is a hell of a delusion. currently it is hooked up to my VHS and my old options are what get played in here. My house is too small to put it in the actual house, so here it is. House is 1085sq ft, she tiny, and it houses 2 adults, 1 baby and 2 cats. Supra hasnt had anything done to it since i started putting the engine bay back together months ago. I have oval tube on order and its back ordered but I have been messing about with the integra air box, got a new filter for it and ill come to a conclusion on that soon. Cressida has been put back on the road and I have been dailying it to see what new problems it has developed since sitting there since Oct 2020. First up was replace the very old battery as this was the last part of the puzzle for the poor start, currently it starts very good and strong. Steering has felt weird since driving it around, found a loose castor rod nut, and the diff is rather chattery (going to change that soon), and the brakes..brake, RR, was dragging. All 4 brakes were cleaned, lubed and bled. Raised the rear 10mm as the front was a little higher so this should even it out some more. Raised the exhaust while I was under there as a temp fix as i plan to clock the tips correctly once I finally put the short jzx bumper on the rear. I removed the power steering cooler to see if the system would bleed, sure enough, it did. i had it going from the reservoir to cooler to pump and i think the vane pump sucks and it was causing constant air to be generated. It should work on the low pressure side as its on the push side but thats for another day. Bled the clutch while i was on the bottom and the fork fell out...so i lubed that all up, ordered some cover plates for the r box, and then put the fork back in and continued to bleed the clutch. feels a lot better to shift now oddly lol. still some more things i want to sort out but theyre small and the car functions currently. Need to put miles on it cause it just sits there. sadly its nuclear summer now and it generates a lot of heat 😕 but it stays cool so thats what matters. civic shifter had been feeling poor for a little while now so when i had it in the air last time i took a look. one nut was missing, and the other looked like it was ready to break. i popped it out. took the remaining nut off, welded the top so the captive stud was actually captive. put a new bolt in and lined it up, welded and ground that down, shot it with black, got new crush washers and nuts, cleaned the shifter itself, lubed that all up and popped that back in with the oem shift knob to change it up a bit. while i had the paint out, i splashed some black on the wiper arms as they were nature polished crv has been a non stop fun machine with random failures. the latest has been the fan sensor, it gave up the ghost after 425k kms and has overheated the motor for the tenth time now. already got a new one and looped the fan for the time being so it wouldnt leave my wife and baby stranded in this heat. its not a huge deal as the oem rad and system works so well the fan rarely comes on, but when it needs to be on, i really need it. we went camping in it a few months back. going to get the ac checked out and refill it so might have a few days of ac whats been taking most of my time has been the LS400. i started parting it out and then took the motor out. its heart breaking but the parts have gone on to help save and make a few LS400s a little better with her parts. little over doubled my money and got a free motor out of it so thats a win. covers the loss of the tents at least....ahh yes, the feeling of going back to zero. just started tear down on the 1uz to clean it up and get some paint on the valve covers so it may look fun while it sits there forever. looking forward to this going away. Id get another LS400 for keeps some day. They are a very well built car and appreciated how nice they were to work on and take apart through all of this.
