    New Look / Same Poor Taste

    This is the perfect family cruiser. Understated power. Nothing screams look at me. Love it and wish it was mine. HA!

    Am I the only person who didn't like that look? Also this is amazing. I think my favorite parts are the wheels, and the fact that the swap is still so clean inside the rear and you've managed to retain so much useable storage space. If I could pull that off I'd be inclined to swap to IRS. Did you trash the rear end already? Is it still in good shape? Are you located any where near louisiana? I'm still trying to find myself a replacement rear end for my car. And I haven't found a pickup rear end yet. This might do me.

    @Gordo after discussing with various persons it turns out swapping the X8 front suspension on to the X3 is more of a pain in the dick than some people led me to believe. most likely gonna put X7 parts on later. I'll see what I can find.

    We had replaced the brake master because it was old, rusty, and leaking. But because it was all those things it had let plenty of moisture in the system. And so the front brakes seem to have issues. I was wanting to up grade them anyway, and go with X7 or X8 front struts. @Gordo I need x8 front strut assemblies. preferably with brakes and everything. You got some laying around I know. How much?

    I dig the little truck. I would like to have a van like that to beat around town in. Don't need the 4x4 though. But everyone who imports one always imports 4x4 here. Buying a whole extra rear subframe seems like such a good idea. I need to buy a new rear end for my wagon, build it up and then slap that shit in. I've been putting it off and lazy. But the motor is almost done.

    @ChriSOL I ordered a hub from Japan. Looking forward to having my shit mounted correctly. Also it runs now. So that's awesome. Just a little left and then it should be driving as well.

    My biggest thing was I wanted to keep a floor mounted pedal. I don't know why but I did. It's not my drift slut it's my daily and I just like floor mounted pedals because I'm old. So using a combo of the originally linkage pedal sawed apart and welded to a pieces of a cable throttle pedal. It's a frankensteins monster that should be interesting. I'll try to add a photo here later. It's only just come together a few days ago.

    If you want the quality sound for voice calling and audio then this should cover you for under $300. I don't think you'll get much better than this for the price. Should sound damn good and be pretty straight forward to control. I don't use the iphone but for the android I've found that pioneer has made the phone quick and easy to use through the stereo. https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-MVH-1400NEX-Digital-Multimedia-Receiver/dp/B07951J34N

    I'll agree on the fortune auto. Seems to be the way most people go these days. @ChriSOL is a rebel with his no shroud life. If you put a new radio in Pioneers are pretty damn seemless when it comes to connecting. Do you need android auto/iwhatever hands free crap? They have gotten good at it. Alpines always sound better. It's just a fact. I don't know that I'd run another double din in a cressida. I had an alpine once, but I just liked the simplicity of my single din more. But to each their own. I just know more about radios than all the other shit I should know about when it comes to these cars. But more to your question, if you have a new radio and you are getting that much noise the problem isn't the radio(unless its a factory defect) the problem is your installation. Consider running better ground and power to it.

    Ohh thats nice. @ChriSOL I'll have to see if my wife will let me order it. I really wanna put the wheel back in. I haven't been doing a good job of updating. Just realized I haven't been here since before we all got locked down. I'm hoping since Texas is opened back up I'll be able to go over to Austin and get the car soon. Various things have slowed down the process of the swap. But lots of awesome shit has happened too. The exhaust is almost done. Fully divorced. Resonators in the original stock cat location, and mufflers from and old 60s jag. Guess I never shared photos of them here. Everything is fully welded up to the axle now. dual 1.75" with tiny 1.75" vbands just before the axle. So cute. I'll post up another photo in a bit. Since it will only ever let me upload one at a time.

    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.
