Oh, and how much did you pay for the car? You can't realistically expect to buy a car for less than (I'd say) five grand and not have to put at least a few hundred bucks into it. Doesn't necessarily...

You need to learn to wrench on your own stuff. These cars are old enough yet cheap enough that it's a fool's errand to pay a mechanic to do anything on them. Unless you really have your head stuffed...

The kid I bought it from was delivering pizzas in it. I assume that's what he was doing when he jumped a median and straddled it with the undercarriage. I don't know if the weather was inclement or...

They're on the list already. ;) Junkyarded them for a song about a year ago and just hadn't gotten around to putting them on the red car yet.

Dropping the subframes is the only realistic way to...

Since the auto trans in my red SC400 seems to be on its last legs from a track day last fall, and that car is kind of stalled out right now, it was time to rob a few parts from it. I took a day and...

I had to support the engine so I could pull all the subframes and motor mounts out. I looked at the Harbor Fright engine support bar, but really didn't want to drop $70 right then. A visit to Home...

Rare SC Restomod - Finally I have a JZ car!

A couple months ago my buddy texted me a link to a local Craigslist ad for an SC300 that had hit a curb. It was a five speed and I figured I could use the pedals and such for my intended 5.3 LSx/T56...

I get that, but the way I look at it, this entire transmission option is a hybridized intermix cluster**** anyway lol, so I'm not worried about that part of it. I just hate buying the same parts...

So it looks like everyone in this thread so far is using the block adapter plate. Has anyone had experience with the A340 bellhousing adapter? Since I'm starting with a five speed W58 setup already,...

I got a chance to drop by the junkyard today. Pulled the wheels off of a 2000 ES300, a 98 GS300, and a mid 2000's Camry but had no luck. I can pull a Toyota steering wheel in about two minutes flat...

PM with spoiler if you want. I haven't heard anything either way, but had just assumed she wouldn't since the books are basically not canon at all (AFAIK).

Do other Lexus clocksprings/ribbon cables fit SC?

Turns out that the steering wheel on my hardtop car had been spun around way beyond the normal range due to the broken steering rack, and I believe the ribbon cable assembly inside is broken. Has...

Pretty sure that was me, unless there was another one earlier in the day. Just now saw this thread from Ali's build thread; I'll have to keep a better eye on this board.

Looks pretty rough, but I love the name. Too bad she's not "canon" anymore and won't be in the movies. :(

Yeah, he slammed it pretty hard. I might actually still text him and see how fast he was going to do that kind of damage. Luckily he said he only owned the car for maybe 2000 miles so hopefully he...
