There is a guy on SupraForums who neglected his 7M's oil, and welded the cams to the head.
He might be willing to pay something for that amazing 7M.

is welding your cams to your head like welding the spider gears in your open diff? sounds like it's a good idea for drifters.

No, it's like welding the ring gear to the pinion gear because someone said to weld your diff up.

^^ If you look at other videos they did, they basically tried capitalizing on viral videos in the car world with stuff like WB-40 instead of oil?  Ziptie Tires? Filling a tire with water?

Yes this amazing 7m was so great that it had no cams and rod knock.  It also had the amazing ability to cover the entire engine bay in oil and grime its a great corrosion prevention.

Look at that cross-member that appears to be painted black

I was surfing the internet and found some disassembled panasport G7 that will look great with the white.

Now that the 7m is out of my garage I can pull the 2j out of the silver car and pull the rack and pinion to move to the white car since its only a month only.

The left rear panel had a been hit and to have it body worked would have cost more than what the white shell was offered to me at.  

Since my trans was out already it was only a little more to pull the motor then maybe like 3 hours to swap the rest of the parts.

it was my old x8 which was given to me by marc’s dad.  i kept it at my wife’s work in their warehouse.  work wanted it gone, they need the space.  wife said it has to go, a deal i made with her when i bought a 2019 tacoma 6 speed manual in a existential panic the morning she said she was pregnant with #3.  had to dump it quick and i originally offered it to kyle out in texas but had no way to get it out there. called gerald up the exact day he was contiplating on getting a new shell and immediately rented a uhaul and took it to his house.  

life in the nfl.

I am having problems with the xcessive tie rods I got there smaller ones the are alot longer that stock and I cant adjust all the positive toe out.  I am thinking I will have to take the hex sleeve to work and machine it down a 1/4in on each side to be usable for me.
