Ugh, I can't wait to have a house so I can do a garage like I want. (my current garage isn't bad... I'd like to do more)

Yes they are :wink: A lift is in my future plans :D

Got my hubs almost off but, ran out of decent light. Picking up some florescent light strips in a bit to finish the wheel bearing teardown.

Love the wheels man. Looks so good. What are the specs? I like your house too, looks like a good buy.

Bad enough that I want to fix it. It's the only rotted part under the car :x damn NE winters!!!! I drove it one winter back in 05, and under washed it twice a week :cry: No worries, she'll be fixed soon.

What did that cost you? Trying to get an idea of what the cost is going to be.

Did it myself. I used a sawzaw to make a clean cut of the mount. Grinded down and cleaned it up, then my little brother rewelded it back on.

One of the bolts to hold the front sway bar onto the chassis snapped cleaned into the mount...we couldn't extract it, no matter how much we tried. So I hacked the mount off, took out the snapped bolt from behind that was stuck into the stock welded nut. Cleaned it up, and rewelded it back on. Upon doing all of this, i noticed that area was slightly bent....previous owner must have ran over something.

In general, it wasn't the most fun project...the worst project so far was probably replacing a good section of my rocker panel.

So I haven't had time to touch my trac lately, but I did pick up a new toy a few months ago :D It's a 03 IS300 5-speed LSD with a 2JZGTE swap :wink:

No doubt! I love to get one of those as a DD. That engine should have been a factory option!

Getrag transmission?

Good find! When I got my IS300 to dd, it's been hard not to mod it, but I've held back so far!

Thanks guys, It's a really fun car I must say, and I finally got to use my CCW Classics i've had for years just collecting dust in my garage :twisted: Since the pic above i've cleaned up the engine bay a lot! I'll post updated pics soon, still have some work to do and painting the wheels a different color :wink: It's just a little something to play with while the trac is down and out :(
