Arrow Jintei's SC

'Sup guys?

New SC owner here!

I bought this car about 2 months ago in bone stock condition as a replacement of my Celica and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

It's a '92 SC400 clean title.

Paint is original, no oxidation, no rips on the interior except on the driver's seat, excellent mechanical condition, can't really think of anything bad about this car.

All maintenance were done as soon as I got this car (engine oil, tranny oil, lsd oil, 3 stage polish, etc.)

As I loved my Celica so dearly, the SC made me fall in love all over again.






It looked exactly like this when I got it:



Now:















LS400 front calipers are waiting to be installed and still waiting to get some SS lines and some nice rotors and powdercoat the calipers gold.

Next big project would be the W58 conversion. I can't think of anything more satisfying than having a 5 speed V8 SC.

From there, I'll start modifying the exhaust, header, etc.

Now I'm a proud Lexus owner and glad that I'm now part of the SC club!

Thanks for looking!

-David

As of 08/26/10, Got some Megan coils, fireball Megas, LS rotors + calipers, prothane bushings, more stretch and lower...

















Haven't installed the front rotors yet, still waiting to powdercoat the LS400 front calipers.

Next: 215/35/19 for the fronts, Vertex, and W58 conversion.

March 12, 2011 update...

New wheels installed, taken today at XDC parking lot (Happy 1 year anniversary, SC!):







Next: Black housing headlights.

I hope you guys like it.

-David
