    I bought someone else's Cressida

    Brian in a Cressida = the universe aligned
  3. Yea, that's an unlikely scenario Gordon. Mostly Canadians flying to India or heading to Mexico if unsatisfied (not common at all). I'm just glad I'm going to have full coverage from my employers when I move down to the States. Your system seems sketchy AF.

    Back when O-bubba came up with his bull shit health care plan (which doubled my health care costs), one of the arguments to it was the fact that people come to the US from Canada, just to get around the crappy system up there.

    If you have paint drying before contacting the surface, you are using the wrong thinner..... I have never seen a dryer actually bring air down that cold, and it seldom stays as cool as the dryer brings it down to for very long.
  9. So I gave this car to Gerald for free, and he put a ton of time and money into it and I bought it back so he could buy a Supra. Now I'm slowly making it my own. 2jz-gte, single turbo, r154 the usual stuff.

    no idea how our dollar gets affected by anything, never took economics lol blanket healthcare. no family doctors out in bc, all walk in clinics, typical wait time is 1-3hrs to get basic walk in stuff done, but that is covered by our medical service plan we all pay into, albeit a flawed plan. surgery can be months and months away on the regular, private options have started to pop up as an alternative but arent covered by our health services and would be out of pocket. definitely better than still having to wait and then re mortgage your house. our houses out here are 400k+ (condo/townhouse) some houses, typically in the 700+ range though pending area. but thats all besides the point because in manitoba houses are in the 1-200k range too oh well

    Very interesting, it makes me wonder if the higher temp paint that you used would dry from the atmosphere before it even hit the surface you were painting if you didn't have it. Yeah, tools are cool man, I agree

    I guess the technical name is "refrigerated compressed air dryer", but refrigerated dryers use a refrigeration compressor and heat exchange to cool the compressed air to 35°F, a temperature where the moisture condenses and is drained off. It's nice that they cool the compressed air too so that you're not "drying" the paint as you spray it. Not that this applies to you in any way, just figured you could nerd out about it like me. lol

    Thanks Zach, the real name for the gun I have is "Air Gunsa HZ3", but it's made by Iwata. Just thought I'd clarify that in case someone wants to buy it, but can't find it online. Yeah, a few car guys at work do the same thing. They all have $25 primer guns that they just throw away or clean half-assedly when they're done with them. I thought about doing that, but it pains me to throw away or neglect a tool. But yeah, cleaning that high build out of my gun sucked. It's a pain to get off. I've never heard of a compressor air refrigerator until you mentioned it lol. My air and oil separator that I have for my compressor works really well. I did buy the disposable moisture separator for just behind the gun, but my autobody buddy told me to get that shit out of here. He thinks the separator at the compressor works plenty well enough. I wasn't going to argue with him, since he does it for a living. Went through and fixed the few things on the strut towers I didn't like, and cleaned up the area on the firewall where the starter wire and engine harness come through. There's a few parts on the firewall that are a bit chunky, but it works. The engine along with other things will block most of the slightly boogery stuff, so it shouldn't be visible.

    Those PHR lasered pulleys look so aggressive. Nice job scoring an Iwata. Personally for Primer, I use a cheap $20 harbor freight HVLP gun; I just toss the gun away after since primer is annoying to clean and I don't like spraying base and primer out of the same gun. Especially with a nice Iwata you bought. Plus primer sprayed finish doesn't necessarily matter since you're going to wetsand the primer anyway. Just something to think about. Either way, looking good man! I agree it's much easier to see your progress and faults with a solid coat of primer. Luckily for you PNW guys, you guys don't need compressor air refrigerators. Just need a shit ton of water separators. lol. If you don't have a moisture separator at the gun, consider getting one of those disposable ones. They're like $5

    Without actually measuring, the front bar seems to be a 21-22mm bar since it is still thinner than my 25mm rear bar. Yeah idk what Canada is doing with their dollar, but hey at least you have affordable healthcare, amirite?

    1989 Cressida Part Out - Northern IN

    /thread I stripped a handful of parts that I thought might sell later, and then filled it with all the junk scrap metal that's been accumulating around the shop and drug it to the scrap yard.

    I also was able to make the bracket from suspicious garage work. He was good about communicating with me and fixing the problem. The second piece he sent me was much closer than the first, but still needed the slightest bit of hacking to make work. Hit it with a little etch primer and then black trim paint.

    Shocking news everyone. If you want a good weld, you have to clean both sides of the metal. After I started doing that, I went through and redid every single crappy weld that I did a few years ago. I paid dearly for not welding properly the first time. Having a nice speedglas helmet is so much better than a piece of $30 harbor freight trash. I can actually see the bead that I'm welding. Incredible. Bought a few more tools for the whole operation. I don't know how I survived without an air compressor for so long, it's amazing to finally have one. I also bought this paint gun. It was a pretty good value at around $250 off amazon. Came with a 1.3, 1.5 and 1.8 tip. There was so much damn bondo dust in my garage... Used some guidecoat to see where my high and low spots were. Once I was happy, I got everything prepped for high build primer. My autobody buddy sprayed the high build for me. It's much easier to look at it when it's all one color. I'm particularly happy with the cleaner looking frame rails. He was pretty impressed at how little overspray there was and how efficient it was. The primer really made any imperfections more evident though. There's a few things I need to touch up with bondo and finish putty. There were a couple places on the strut towers that I forgot to bondo, which I'll deal with momentarily. The bay won't be bathtub smooth, but it'll be damn close. The plan is to paint within the next few weekends. I'm already really happy with how much further the bay has come. Eeeeewww. Much better already

    I'll look tonight, but I'm pretty sure the only thing left is the evap core in the dash (not trying to remove that), and the condensor which is pretty rusty.

    JZX100 Chaser

    Aight guys, looks like I'm coming down south, so I'm going to sell my Chaser since I can't be bothered to bring it with me and try and dodge the 25 yo rule. Here is a CL ad: https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/cto/6971944008.html. OBO, especially for JZXP people. If anyone in the states wants it, to either sit on for a little while or try and import, it is only ~$12k USD...would be keen to get some USD in my pocket before I move stateside.

    Would sail Also thought this was an old picture of one of Kyle's cars. But realized the wheels are slightly different.
