  1. Those 6 piston calipers look like hell for wheel fitment though.

    Cleaned and fitted the carpet from the Cresta also got the dash back in. Some parts recently came in, wasted no time fitting them. New headlights and grille. I got the corners to fit whenever I put the fenders back on. New tail lights, trunk lock Also happened to find this analogue cluster from a JZX81

    Not nice is a severe understatement. As bad as my Mark 2 looked, as you see, there's a lot worse out there.

    Found a JZX81 Cresta for sale locally, bought it as a parts car. Didn't take any pics before I started stripping it apart. Didn't have a trans in it, engine turns over though. The body was thoroughly rotten, the roof had been beaten in. Had the complete brown interior with power driver seat. All that's left of it now

    Primed. First coat of colour down. Paint is Toyota Deep Jewel Green Pearl (6P3), factory paint on the LS400 and Supra before being superseded by Imperial Jade Mica (6Q7). The 2 are similar but I rather the Deep Jewel Green. After a few more coats and then clear. The chrome trim had faded out, so I resprayed them in something a lil more lively.

    Well it's been a year since I got this car, so I figured I'd make a thread on the updates so far. Been looking at getting a 4 door drift chassis of some kind for a while, wanted something to drop a JZ into, and I've always liked older toyotas - my pops had a 1981 Crown back in the day too. Plans are to JZ swap it and get it driving again. As I bought it. It's a 1988 GX81 Mark 2 Hardtop, it was running when I bought it, but not in driving condition - the brakes had seized and it had rust. And one of the previous owners painted the interior blue. These don't go up for sale often around here, plus we have a 12 year import ban on vehicles - only vehicles 12yrs and newer and eligible to be imported. Any others that show up for sale usually either have worse rust or some other issues. The first things after buying were stripping it apart and removing the 1G, then dealing with the rust. Chopped the rusted front end out Cut out the old rockers and welded new ones. New front end tacked on. Welded and primed.

    Nice find, those clusters came out of GX81s with a 1G-GE engine. Rarely see anything off those cars show up.

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    I can relate, just ordered a new windshield for my gx81 and it shattered. fml
  9. Sweet colour! Is that Deep Jewel Green Pearl by chance?

    Center console is just flat. After the auto shifter it's just got one huge pocket. And I managed to get hold of a handbrake assembly and center console of Yahoo Auctions recently.

    Roughly $45-50 for the handbrake assembly only & $85-90 for the assembly and center console.

    I know it was terrible, but not even a 5 for effort?
