    Sleeper MX83 build

    ye @LUMBERZACK is right. i have s9 front fenders. i like them. they look cool. but i can fit the same wheel and tire as i could before with stock rolled n pulled metal. i think the ideal way to go for more width upfront would be stock metal with like those nice custom ls400 metal flares you weld on and mold to look real nice. something similiar to these ulterior motives flares: https://www.umshop-store.com/product/ls400-rear

  3. Phase 1: I found a pearl white X8 w/ grey interior on craigslist in bum fuck nowhere Washington. The guy bought it from an old man who drove it and then upgraded and bought a Lexus and then passed it down to his son. After about 1.5 years it blew the head gasket @ 230k and he sold it to this guy in Washington and he replaced the HG and had to sell it due to him moving to Florida. It was immaculate and bone stock. Picked it up for $1500. I drove it for a few weeks and then its passenger brake line blew up and i had to replace the front brake lines and while i was there painted the calipers off the shelf chevy muscle car orange/red for extra cool points. and for some reason i thought it was a good idea to use anti seize on the lug studs. My first time ever working on a car and i was clueless. My first goal was to 5 speed swap it. After a couple hours of research i figured out that everyone's w58's were shit and found a mk3 R154 on a Facebook drift page for $550 at a local shop with a 30 day warranty. After a couple more hours i figured out everything i needed to make the swap happen (shout out to driftmotion and Xcessive): I then found a d-max vented hood in Newberg, Or for $100 and riveted it on for extra jdm fucc boi points. Found some $30 S14 springs for some poor boy low. At this point i had the 5 speed swap done and was waiting for a driveline and i picked up some mk3 supra wheels for $50. I did a couple celebratory burnouts/donuts and realized that open diffs suck and i had a lot of play in the rear end. found a 3.93 MK3 diff in the middle of nowhere Oregon and picked it up. Painted it race car red and me and my friend Jeff McCall installed the Xcessive poly subframe bushings and poly diff bushings, MK3 diff adapter and sub frame re-enforcement plate. Got all the parts installed and got an alignment. I thought i was the coolest dude on the block. Then after about 2 months of daily driving I acquired a rod knock after doing a donut showing off for friends. And that was pretty much my first 1 year of Cressida ownership. I spent the rest my year not doing shit tryna save up and buy a house and i eventually bought a house in Vancouver, WA. That's when phase two happened. I'll post it later if i have time.

    Had a friend ship me some factory X8 chrome door handles from AUS. Not bad for only $60 and trade for a USDM cup holders.

    @Gordo couple thousand miles and couple track weekends and no issues with it yet. i dont think i will and if i do ill just go topmount and avoid all the aids fitment issues with bottom mount setups.

    Gordo, fucked up parts are just scratches and some cracked and ripped fenders/overs and kit. battleaxe, tbh rn i dont know if the rack solenoid is plugged in or not ill double check when i get home. but basically i swap in a new ps pump and no power steering. so i figured id just replace the rack with an x7 one and new jz pump since they both are shit. jz's are great their ps systems suck cocks.
