JZX90 Cresta - CheeseCake

Recommended Posts

Car just rolled in today! Aero is a bit rough and will need fixing, wheels are still on the way.

 

It runs and drives 110%. Just had to fix a misc. vacuum hose that came off for whatever reason. I REALLY like the torque compared to my old SR20 with cams on it.

 

I'll take some better pics once it stops raining in this shithole.

Very Very nice. When my parents become offical snowbirds (step-mom is from Quebec) I will trick them into getting something cool to bring down for the winter months : P

So my wheels are now in BC, should see them in 10 days or less.

 

Today is nice out, so i decided to take the day off work since I did nearly 70 hours this week. Took the aero off my car to start fixing it and get it ready for paint.

And a bit less cool, but still nice none-the less

Going to Crappy pneu to pick up an FG repair kit and I'm gonna start the daunting task of fixing the million shits of bits that came off.

 

Oh yea, and when I was jacking my car up, I saw something tucked under the passenger seat. Pulled it out: A box with a whole shitload of random stuff in it...

I also took pics of the rear suspension arms to compare to US spec Toyota's like the is300 and Cressida to see what kind of suspension arms might fit...

hmm, hte rear suspension looks way WAY closer (but not the same) as an mx83 or jzx81, the rear lower and upper control arms are absolutely nothing like IS300 arms.

 

cool pics though, that rear swaybar looks real beefy too. nice. stock mx83 is only 10mm in the back.

ya, the rear shock mounts to the lca on the IS300.

 

 

as for the japanese letter, it says the car was in a horrible accident, frame is toast, and 3 people died in the vehicle. says, wish you luck to the new owner of vehicle.

Man, it's a shame that the arms aren't the same as anything here.

 

Guess I'll have to spend the loot if I can't get my alignment up to what I want it.

Hopefully your rear brakes dont need to be done either, those were an expensive whore to source from Japan.

Nope mine lock up very good!

 

Either way, id probably get thoe projectMu pads to put in there. I heard they last a long long time anyway so they are worth the loot.

Don't mind the ride height, i gotta fuck these coil overs up to go lower. It will be low in typical matt fashion like my s13 was.

Decent enough for stock body I can only assume. If 90's fit wheels similar to 81's shit should be pretty frush.

Was up at 6am for work today, and got in at about 9:30.

 

So excited to throw the wheels on that I was out there until now!

 

Grainy ass night pics, and don't mind a few things like the aero isn't done, and its just sorta hanging there. Also front ride height is high. Didn't have time to mess with the coilovers in the front (ran out of time, cant hammer at the collars after 11pm hahaha and gotta remove liners and stuff). Rears are maxed but I'm pretty happy with the height.

Also test fitted my 10's in the front. They fit! Even with a 235 40. Time to order some 11's for rears :P
