I know everyone loves the JDM corner lights but for me, that CS vent is the jewel in there :D
Where did you find it?
Shitty that your mechanic jerked you around like that. Hope it all comes together soon.

All of those parts came from a friend Down Under. He didn't have a lot of trouble finding the lights... The hood pieces on the other hand, this will probably be the only OEM Toyota set I will ever see. They will be an excellent addition to my car and the install will be nice and clean. I had him cut out the mounting points in the original CS hood so I will have "factory mounted" CS vents in my 165 hood.

Here are the wheels for the car. Rainbow lugnuts, cuz everyone like a little rice :)

Do you mean he cut out the hood bulge where the CS vent will sit?!
Do you have a pic of that?

As much as I love the RC/CS vent on a 165, the thought of an OEM hood being cut up makes me a sad panda.

sadly yes. Even if he shipped me the whole hood I would have done it myself. I figure after the time and money going into my car that CS ST185, wherever it may be would be happy to donate. :)

I will weld in the cutouts, smooth my welds, body work the shape and then mount the vents. I already have the paint for it so I am thinking it will cost me about 25 dollars and a day of labor.

Ok so I fully realize I suck at updating a build thread... Either way here is a quick and to the point update.

The swap is done :)

It runs amazing and is a total blast to drive. I will try to add more details and some WIP photos later... but if I don't does anybody really even care?

Look pretty stuff!!!

Coming along really nice! I thought I remembered you saying you were going with 17" wheels? Have you sorted the suspension yet? Gotta be one of the cleanest 165 interiors I've seen!

Thanks guys the interior was a huge selling point for me when I bought the car. I was surprised that his post in the for sale section didn't have any photos.. Good for me I guess :D It should be going into paint in the spring but until then I will just give it a good cut and buff and keep it nice for winter.

No I went with the 15 so I could have a little more meat on the tires. My town is trying to win a pothole contest somewhere, I think. As for suspension I am still riding on a blown stock suspension....As of right now I am shooting for a tein SS setup for the ST185. I have the little washer set that was sold here a while back and fixes all the mounting points for 185 suspension on the 165.

Ok so I think I am going to sell my dash or possibly trade an EXCELLENT condition black original dash. I bought an ST162 that has a spotless blue dash and I think I am going to wrap it in a new black and use it in my car. That being said if anyone is interested in my dash please PM me. This is a custom leather wrapped dash with red stitching. Has a few spots that could use some love but as you can see from my photos, it looks damn good.
