  1. so yeah, I've always been bummed since toyoDIY took down their diagrams, but poking around online to find a diagram of the door lock and panel assembly, I notice a lot of online places list diagrams along with part numbers and prices. one of the ones which has clear diagrams is http://www.toyotapartsoverstock.com/ find diagrams for pretty much all parts on our cars. just thought I'd share. anyways, finding the part number is the easy part... actually finding a place that has them in stock is the real challenge lol. [edit] additionally, http://www.villagetoyotaparts.com seems to have years up to 2013 (pretty much same diagrams, same layout as the other site)

    ToyotaFest 2015

    ^ it took me a second to realize if you were joking about the race track... then i remembered the LBGP. but it is technically just south and across the bay of the streets on which the long beach grand prix is set up on. it's literally next to the permanently parked queen mary and russian scorpion submarine attractions. i missed again this year. it's more a gathering of regulars save for a few exceptions like any new concepts/vintage/racecars toyota brings and some unique builds and rare cars imported from japan. it's worth a look if you are really into toyotas. there is some sort of screening process but you really don't know what to expect until the cars actually show up every year. there are some really nice cars, then you get some cars that look pretty hacked and pieced together last minute... small gallery up on autoweek http://autoweek.com/article/car-life/toyotafest-2015-mega-photo-gallery there'll probably a post up on speedhunters or something with better shots of the cars.
  3. what year is the front subframe. i'm looking for a late 91-92 subframe

  5. i deserve that honestly lol, but i didn't call myself the master procrastinator for nothing! project backburner fo life but i've had two cars sitting on the to-do list, i've decided to let one go so i can focus back on the cressida. might be done this decade at this rate.

    New Look / Same Poor Taste

    just popped in from being absent a little while and saw this. cool stuff man. i don't do white stuff and sure as hell don't touch the brown stuff. and you have both lol yet your car looks 5x better than some builds i've seen that started with a mint x8 (i'm guilty of this) good luck man

    Transformer A-pillar trim

    this will further improve my chances of selling my X8 for $20k as i had originally predicted. ps, if anyone is looking for doo-doo interior, please consult brian or mo as i am currently sitting on a brown interior dashboard, nearly complete doors (fronts only). and some other random bits. no seats.

    giving up, giving in

    like mark, we also have misc fr-s parts, door panels, headlights/taillights etc. whatever else that usually doesn't go on a race car. shoot me a pm if you needs.

    my mother always told me "if you don't have anything nice to say, go post it on JZXP" holy hell there's a lot of backlash here. i'm not dismissing anyone who had trouble with getting Serialnine parts or getting a hold of gerard during serialnine's initial run of x8 stuff.... and, there's a lot of serialnine prototype photos and stuffs in here and such.... but it's still technically a build thread people. may be if gerard changed the thread title to "G's SERIALNINE X8" it would confuse less people... i dunno. there is a Serialnine section in the shops section of the forum, however it's been moved to dead weight since it was quiet for a while. may be one of the mods can resurrect it and people can talk all about serialnine there that are off-topic to his build.

    lx80 to jzx81 has it been done ?

    i see you've been a member since 2010, in which there has been probably 1 or 2 of these swaps completed. searching "LX80" does wonderful things in the jzxp search bar.

    This will not help anyone

    http://jzxproject.com/bbs/index.php?showtopic=8556&hl=clutch but don't know if we even get these transmission in the states, or how abundant they are. still pretty cool though. options are always nice.

    WTB: OEM Driverside Brown door panel - X83

    another chocolate rain edition, where are these brown interior cressidas coming from?

    Wheel fitment bitches x8!

    MxPwns - no i technically don't need them, but the brake kit that's on there is an early driftmotion Z32 rotor/caliper. don't remember exactly why the spacer was needed but it's a hubcentric spacer that centers the nissan rotor on the hub. so to take the spacer off and keep the hubcentric ring, i need to machine the spacer off or just get a new set of rings instead. i think i had 5Zigen FN01R's then (17x8 +35 w/ 225/45/17 front) and it was close to hitting the caliper or the coilover or something. i left them on since it allows me to run retarded high-offset wheels for shits and giggles (yes Z32/280mm caliper can fit in select 15" wheels)

    Stopping power, LS400 calipers on X8

    how the caliper functions may not matter, but how it attaches may.

    the car looks awesome, the all black is definitely pretty menacing. sucks to hear about the spindle, hope you guys find a replacement/solution for it
  19. myth busted! you deserve a handlebar mustache i always thought the IS had suspension components closer to that of the GS? which i think, platform wise, is closer to the crown?

    Cressssssssta. Just the tip.

    Bringing back the dead 1jz mx83

    good to see the car is getting some tlc. and i have that exact shroud. never ever had a cooling issue. and funny thing is, that open ac fan (the small dia hole) has never posed an issue. i just leave it open. if you have a real issue in hot weather though, might want to consider closing it off to pull more cool air in at stops.
  22. glad to see jzxp swept up 1st, 2nd, 3rd
  23. so of course i get set up to be at work so i can take a customer's vehicle in at noon... which means i will probably get there around 2, just as the show is ending. since i probably won't have time to say hello to everyone i'll probably snap up as many pics and post them up.
  24. hydro fan stuffs. the controller and sensor. please pm me a price shipped to 90503 i sends you money i have a hydrofan pump and fan already. so i actually need these.
