Curse of the Cressida

Recommended Posts

looks good man.

 

I've been looking at those bench top metal brakes too. whats the thickness on that aluminum? - It doesn't look like the brake was able to stay stiff enough to get a crisp bend?

 

Buff out the bugs, only you will know.

I took the bug out and the nature piece fell off after it dried up.

 

The sheet wasn't very thick 1/8 thick if that. Not crisp bends, but the curveness of it works for me. First time using it, maybe if I clamped it down on the top half too, Iunno. I clamped it on the line and gave it hell. If I clamped the top I feel it would have not worked as well. Iunno. Making more than one bend you have to get creative

I have a single plug, spade style, very small plug, the 2j one I had was quite a large single spade plug.

 

Side note, our first drift event of the year is this Saturday if you wanna swing by? What're you up here for? And how long for you staying?

Starter is rebuilt, going to pick it up before the weekend. Replaced pretty much everything by the sounds of it, note to get signals working with jzx markers and horn, license plate bracket for bumper then put it together..I think that's it... Get a working horn and hook up a switch for reverse lights and it should be 100% legal

put the starter in last night, assembled the bumper, polished some lenses, LED licence plate lights.

noticed today after more no starts that the block and head both dont have any grounds...and the blinker for the signals doesnt work so i have to replace that as well.

put chubby tires on the blitz wheels for the civic as well.

 

so this week im going to put ground straps on the motor lol, and hopefully it will work.

also took out the MBC and now it looks to run 12psi so thats better.

added a fat 1 gauge ground to the block, started first try. going to add a couple more for good measure.

plan is to make the horn work then insure the car, break in the diff, change diff fluid. drive around town and get rid of this old gas, stay out of boost, then top up with good new fuel and fix any..(lots?) of problems that come up, then call up Bill @ Indy and get it tuned and dyno numbers so i know what its doing and my next steps in the future.

 

i plan to ditch the oem ecu and safcII when i get larger injectors and put the BC cams in...that i got for 20 bucks at a wrecked MKIII that had a 1.5JZ and blew the motor and was sold as scrap to a guy or something. also get Bill to make a full new engine harness because this one is reeeeally shitty and also old and brittle... jesus fucking christ i want to drive this stupid car again

Learn me. I know nothing. I looked it up and there was talk of the msd tach adapter. With hit or miss results? My defi tach also didn't work right when I tee'd it into tach 1 and tach 2 output. So I'm not sure if either of those work? I still need to find the trans half of the Speedo cable too. I have the analog mx83 dash and the mkIII turbo supra dash cause I read about pieces of that working?
