1986 Toyota Mark II JZX71 boso/stance project
Posted 21 August 2011 - 10:17 PM
hey guys ive got a 1986 Toyota Mark II Gx71, real japanese one, none of this nz new cressida bullshit. Awesome brown interior, factory w57 1g-eu. Bought the car sight unseen. Drove it for two days and decided that it was un-drivable with sooo little power. After making mates with mike from garage slipway it now has a 1jz-ge in it. Although its not turbo it was cheap and has still doubled factory power. when i bought the car it was an absolute dog. I bought it sight unseen, it had abit of rust around it, but the front was all bent, cracked headlight and grill mounts and of course being the jap spec version, parts are next to imposible to find in nz. dents and scratches everywhere. so this is how she looked.

Oh, and we set the bonnet on fire, like i said, this thing is here to be different, and basically rusting panels is waaaay to common now, so setting fire is how it works, its rough at the moment but we are guna take a blow tourch to it and even it all out, will end up looking awesome as and the colour will make a brilliant contrast to the gold paint.

So thats where we are at for now. The next update should hopefully be a good one, im saving for a set of ae86 bc gold coilovers to dump the shit out of it and set up a good stance. I also want to do the whole f series rear subframe conversion and get a locked diff into it. And last but not least ive got a pair of fender mirrors sitting round that i have been wanting to put on for ages but havent got around to it. Oh and i want to build my wooden roof basket set up. So yea.

so yeah car still doesnt go, guy i had organised to get the subframe off has dropped off the face of the planet. currently attempting to get a t series axle so i can at least getting it driving again while trying to find a cressida to tear parts from. On an unrelated note i got a set of steels widened so i can at least have something to slam it on once the coilovers go in. Going to take the front struts out and take them to ttt and have them welded to the coilovers so it can be slammed asap aswell. dish on the steels have started rusting a little bit which actually looks kinda rude so will leave them be for a bit till i decide what colour i want to paint them.
tl;dr? car doesnt go, got new wheels. Oh and by my calculations, 14x9jj -15. YEEEAAAAHHHHH
Photo because how else would anyone know how deep they are.
