Keep going.

Sooner or later the truth will come out.

In other news I put 70k miles on my IS in 3 years.

 

 

The fuck. I am at 200k now. These things are amazing.

starting to de-rice this thing.

Start by removing the HID fog bulbs that don't work.

 

Then remove the painted dark tint from the lenses themselves.

'13-14 Camry SE front would be great. Probably look better than a 110, and has that little square mouth that has JZX written all over it.

 

If I had to replace the front of a GS or IS, I'd do something like that for kicks.

well bought this trans under the assumption it was a jzx90 version. it's totally a jza70 box with a custom extended shifter housing that was setup for a s14. ugh. hope this nissan fag didn't clutch kick this thing to death.

 

will have to have the extension shortened by 1-1.5". been reading that shifter center for jce10 from bell is 29.5". this measures 30.5". going to test fit and see if it's livable, otherwise will have to have this shortened.

Unless you enjoy pulling trans in your spare time, I suggest you open it up now, and replace that fucking weak thrust washer that seems to fail on a regular basis.

Because hoping that nissan fag didn't clutch kick it to death is like hoping a 100k MkIII supra that someone threw a chinese turbo on, isn't going to pop a head gasket.

yeah something about the later cars that are hard to fall in love with completely. good platforms, but more of a side bitch than something you'd marry.

I think it's the booty. Makes or breaks a car. The mx83 had all that booty, and then you got with that petit scrawny butted bitch with no engine bay space for even its stock inline six.

 

We're all fucked. We'll be comparing everything to a Japanese taxi for the rest of our lives. We're like jdm panther people.
