  1. 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.

    Update: Just started prepping for paint. P.s. body work kinda sucks but is also kind of rewarding. Also test fitted some S9 skirts.

    Gordo, I've been using Jesse Streeter and the last time i put a max bid of $400 and let it auto bid up to that amount. Last set of center caps went for like 550-650$, I only paid $800 for all 4 Koenigs prior to rebuild. So honestly feels like a waste of money. I feel that $400, which is $100 a cap is a fair price, but i guess not. RIP which is why i'm tryna find someone to machine me 4 center caps to make them look less ugly. cuz honestly the center caps make the wheel in my eyes imo.

    BattleAxe, Oh i'm well aware of all the complications with vented hoods, I've killed many spark plugs. I just carry a tarp around with me when it's raining or if i think it'll rain and put it on top the engine while parked. I honestly just avoid driving in the rain all together though.

    Chris, Just out of pure curiosity. What do you like and don't like? I know you already don't like my "Ni**er pimp purple". But i'm open to constructive criticism. And i don't want to punch anyone in the face. ❤️

    u right. lets source project mu pads for like 250-300$ then install them then jam my hand into the shit ebrake location and then drop my driveline and tighten my cable every event. Sounds like straight aids. I have around the same amount invested in a hydro setup that works all the time and requires zero maintenance besides swapping pads which i probably will never do.

    MX83 Drift Caliper Bracket

    My Honda calipers hang off my my rotors too and have maybe like 50-60% pad contact but it locks good and hard everytime with a 3/4" master and random cheapy pads.

    Lips and barrels came in after threepiece.us fucked up and my shit arrived a month late then when the arrived order was wrong then took them another 45 days to get me my correct order and then never drilled a hole for my valve stem. So they can suck my taint. My VR wheel shit came on time and right the first time. Assembled them and my holes didnt line up perfectly and had to rubber mallet and hammer some of the hardware in. #Thanksthreepieceyoudumbcucks Front: 18x9.5 (idk offset after rebuild) w/ 12mm spacer to clear Z32 calipers w/ 215/35/18 (~7 camber) Rear is 18x11.5 (idk offset after rebuild) w/ 255/35/18 and i could fit a bigger tire, which i will do next time i need new ones. (.5 camber) Here's some cool action shots with a roller (roller was driving home from a drift event where i popped a tire and the tire did some fucky shit and shaved the lip on the fender so i gotta fix that now. Shake down was successful and now it's back in my garage on jack stands, while i replace the rear wheel bearings that died and to prep for body work. So i can paint it when i source a real BN kit. And one last cool group X chassis pic from the event. There was one missing cuz his clutch blew up. RIP I NEED CENTER CAPS EVERYTIME I PLACE A BID ON YAHOO.JP I GET OUT BID. SO IF ANYONE CAN MACHINE ME CENTER CAPS I WOULD LOVE YOU FOREVER. ILL EVEN PAY YOU. i had a friend make me a pair. i lost one and i only have one atm.

    So i had all the suspension shit put in and eyeballed an alignment as good as i could. This was a pre-alignment picture. i wanted fender to lip fitment and 0 rear camber. Little did i know 0 camber combined with the s9 fenders which radius up ~1.5" higher gave me undesired fitment. Maxed out the BC extreme lows and wasn't good enough. So i called up BC and ordered 1.5" shorter inserts from a 2006 sentra coilover kit. (1.5" shorter would be p/n: 190-105-AR2-12.5-M12) Upgraded to Z32 fronts. Got everything brand new off rock auto for less than these Nissan part taxing drift guy cunts wanted for their old shitty Z32 parts. Drove it for while with my spare wheels while i waited for my lips and barrels arrived from VR & Threepiece.us. P.s. Threepiece.us sucks cock and balls. fuck them. I got tired of the ugly riveted on hood vent and wanted to take a stab at molding it in, So i jumped right in by cutting out a huge hole. Then used fiber all to use like a glue between the fiberglass and hood then used self taper screws to keep the vent level and not wavey. Then used bondo to make it look like it belonged in the hood. It’s still dirty and covered in guide coat overspray & It’s just rattle can primered and a lil uncentered but im happy with my first attempt at doing something ive never done before.

    Cute corgi pic / part mock up So my biggest problems I've experienced at the track was trying to keep cool and killing PS pumps. So in an attempt to help i installed a koyorad rad and fan shroud with 2, 14" electric fans and a 19 row koyorad PS cooler w/ 25% larger oversized PS pulley. Which feels like no power steering at all unless i'm high rpms. So far it works great if my janky wired up fans are working properly. i need to find someone to help me wire up my fans professionally. Also the JZX100 Koyo rad didnt line up with x8 holes on the bottom so i welded 2 new tabs on the bottom to suit an x8 and after that it fit like a glove. Here's a pretty much finished up bay pic minus PS AN lines and cooler. I'm happy with it. Goal was to have a super flashy bay and not as flashy exterior color to contrast. Kind of like a freak in the sheets but business casual during the day to not attract alot of unwanted attention. Which doesn't really work because its loud and still flashy. Finally found another pair of Koenigs off a instagram wheel page. Bought em and i wanted to rebuild em to something wide and stock body couldnt fit what i was wanting. My goal was to try and achieve S chassis fitment on an X chassis.. So i bought S9 front and rear fenders.Funny story when the fenders arrived i set them on the lawn and drove over them with my truck on accident and that began my introductory to fiberglass work 101 class. LOL. I'm a fucking idiot. So i glassed them back together but they will look like ass till i sand the outside and fill the cracks. which i will be doing later.

    Sold it to a guy who rocks it now. Fitment was shit but looks decent from 10 ft away. Which is all i think he cares about. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and TY.
