That^ would look tits on this thing. Especially with the subtle oem style aero. Fuck nissans but that color scheme looks damn good on those.

Yeah that's cool too. I thought I saw something similar on UCF20s. Not sure if I'd like a lighter, silvery color as much though. I've been looking at LS400 two tones, and I like this one the best:

My car has one of the uglier combinations. Literally every surface inside and out on this car is a shade of blue

And once again I'm drawn to this for some reason

^ that's the one i was thinking about. since ropadopa is back, maybe he can share some better pics to give you an idea of what a x81/lexus style 2 tone would look like on an x83 body.

Liking the looks of your car, I love the two tone stuff put keep in mind im kinda old. I rocked this which was the same as your example, these colors change allot i think its called Toupe or somthing like that it can go from not looking 2 tone to major two toned the color went from brown to having a pink hugh , I think it looks only good with silver colored wheels definitly classy.

It seems that toyota really has it figured out, their two tones flop nice , some times the blend and sometimes they have contrast

All of those rule. And yeah that LS400 two tone gray has more of a brown hue than I expected. I think a gray with more of a bluish hue would match my wheels and interior better.

 

That white/gray Cressida looks pretty damn good. I think a darker shade on the bottom would suit my flares better, like the gray on those black X81's. And as much as I'd love black, it's a super fucking pain in the balls color that I don't want to deal with again.

I know what you mean, for some reason I like that contrast. It's almost like I want to treat the entire bottom half of the car as "trim" and only the top half as the painted body. I might just end up with an OEM combo. Fuck it, I have plenty of time to make up my mind

I was bored this past winter, so I made a 1.5 using an SC300 block. Now that I have more shit on my plate, I wish I was bored again. Went back together a lot slower. "Finished" it right around when I graduated a couple weeks ago. This was also an opportunity to do a few things I've needed for a while; oil cooler, Fluidampr, AFPR, new steering rack with XM bushings, etc.

I bought a Tial MV-whatever and reconsidered my wastegate routing (I should reconsider my mortality)

And in case you were wondering, it still looks retarded:

We're setting up a booth to do a few cars this summer, and mine is on the list. 80% decided on a color. Since we're ordering Benz colors, I was going to do 755, Steel Gray:

With you not posting for a long time, I had to go back and re-read the story of Lazarus rising from the grave.

 

Nice save......

Like I said, I wouldn't have put that much into saving it, I'd rather waste my time on keeping a 7M running.

To each their own hell.......

This entire car is one big sunk cost fallacy. Only way out is a race to the bottom.

 

Turbo and manifold are from a Driftmotion kit. So Chinese and Chineser. Turbo is a 6262 with a .70 exhaust and is still pretty lazy even with the N/A block. Smokes like a chimney.
