If it wasn't satin black it'd be perfect old man sleeper style. I guess it's a paradox. Sweet car.

A couple buddies bought me a new shell the next day and the work began..

168470_10150390383550577_817900576_16949961_1998271_n.jpg

 

new car had a destroyed dash and harness was torn out.. so i took a few pieces from the parts car

167354_10150390382070577_817900576_16949931_1140963_n.jpg

 

done swapping

168690_10150390383020577_817900576_16949954_1078385_n.jpg

 

noticed it was banged up a bit in the front and ghetto straightened.. and the parts car is totally straight in the front so.........

i cut it out..

168463_10150390385760577_817900576_16949996_6361404_n.jpg

 

and transfered it from the straight car.

180231_10150390387455577_817900576_16950018_5044842_n.jpg

 

then deciced to drift it this year so i figured bead welding towers and stitching the whole bay was in order

180825_10150390389175577_817900576_16950056_4736151_n.jpg

 

after that we slightly tubbed the wells to fit bigger wheels with more angle and welded up a bunch of holes, removed battery tray and covered a bunch of weld for a cleaner look

180009_10150390400930577_817900576_16950313_2643927_n.jpg

Yay! 2JZ buddy. I'm starting to have more 2JZ friends now. Bang for buck over 1jz. Someday people will get it, then they will be expensive and we will be happy.

Fuck man. I paid well under a grand for my 1JZ motorset. If you can find me a 2jz with everything for that I'd gladly trade up.

Point is.... I paid $1700 shipped for my motor. I know people find 1jz for cheaper than 2JZ MOST of the time, but I would gladly pay a little bit more for what I have.

 

 

Nice car, get it done and have fun. Take a cab from now on!
