    Y0SH's JZX83

    So I picked up a 90 cressida last November and blew the head gasket in December. Figured it was a good excuse to do a swap. I picked up a 1J non VVTi and R154. I also picked up a 1 piece driveshaft, FMIC, XM mounts, Mishimoto radiator, and new maintenance parts. I also decided to paint the engine bay while the engine was out. Decided to do the wiring myself until I can afford a panic harness. Finally got it to start tonight so now I need to start putting everything back together. Here's how it sits now.

    I’m on the look out for a RWD model with dual sunroofs and a rear wing. Only the RWD models had the dual sunroofs as an option in the US, and the OEM wings still sell for 300 used since Toyota still sells them new for 1100. So I’m just going to buy a van with both, swap the roof skins and frames, and the rear hatch with the wing and sell the parts van with the old roof and hatch and for what I bout it for.

    So I lowered my blue NA Alltrac and threw some 18” G35 wheels on it. One of the fenders was damaged, it had a little rust starting by the rear wheel wells, and the rear lift gate had a big dent above the rear glass so I started looking for a parts van. I found one with a vague description for sale that looked like the parts that I needed were straight so I went to check it out. It turned out it was a near mint condition Supercharged Alltrac with a blown head gasket. So I fixed the head gasket and sold the blue van. I then found a good deal on a set of 17x8 high disc +32 Front and low disc +24 rear with 245/45/17s. Threw them on the van and the offset is perfect and will give me room to put the big brake setup I want on the van in the future. Then I lowered the van 3” on RSR super down springs until I’m able to order some HKS coilovers. But I’m waiting to do a IRS swap out of a TRC21 Estima. And when I tried to order a set shipping was 1400 from Japan. Over the next week I’m going to be setting it up to run my mobile detailing business out of. Will be installing a water tank, power washer, compressor, a larger output alternator, and possibly a driveshaft driven alternator in the dear future.

    I wish I could have kept the corolla but I got an offer I couldn’t pass up. This will be mainly for work for my detailing business so it will be getting done before spring.

    Picked up a TCR20 previa alltrac that I’m going to clean up and turn into a shop van/vip cruiser. https://imgur.com/gallery/dl7aINq

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Out of those I'd say the OMP is what I'd go with. But for my next project I've been eyeing the Veilside reclinable buckets in carbon. They are't too expensive, look like a comfortable shape/size, and I've never seen anyone use them on their build.

    Sleeper MX83 build

    Ive always loved those seats. From the front the look subtle and classy and the backs are super flashy and wild. They're the mullets of seats.
  10. So jealous of your blue chassis. Im looking for another cressida to build and that exactly what Im wanting.

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Those wheels look awesome on an X chassis and even better with your color combo
  12. Did you keep the veilsides?

    There's also Hippo Sleek and I cant remember if destruction king makes rear bumpers or if they're only front.

    número tres

    this looks exactly like how my last x8 started except the older fabric. i loved how the pearl catches the light.
  15. im pretty sure i still have a hood somewhere. I've thought about doing the same.

    Just picked up a 79 corolla wagon. The bolt to the alternator bracket broke off in the block so the original owner gave up on it. I picked it up super cheap and got the alternator on and it runs great so far. Ill post pics when i get home if anyone wants to see a stock corolla.

    wonderwoman buys an outfit she doesn't fit into

    There's some shop space for rent I've been looking at up by I25 and hwy76, that's a round 25x40 ish (there are a few available).
  18. I'm in the same boat; fighting a flu with coffee, mucinex, and 12 hour shifts. Those shirts look rad. Kid looks like a little badass.

    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    I work at a body shop polishing paint jobs. Fuck black. I'll sti probably paint my next x chassis black but I'll already be bitching about everything else about it, it'll be nice to have something new to complain about.

    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    I think I've only ever seen 2 black x8s, and they've both been on jzxproject over the ten years I've been on here.
  22. Looks good. It's kind of weird seeing so many cars being finished at the same time on here. How's the shop working out for you?

    This came together very nicely, and sounds strong.
