    Good you're ok. bad you're care is out.

    Oh Baby! 2JZ!! That would be an awesome install! Lots of info out there on the swap, lots of parts available to make the swap easier. I believe there's a harness available to put it in just about anything.

    Those wheels look meaty, they'd give the little minitruck a bit of a burly appearance. Matter of taste.

    Maybe, if the budget and time allow, the IS's rear suspension can find a new home in your truck. Hmmmm.

    Only problem is my car is a very uncommon spec. Technically it's rare. I've only seen a few in the last couple years that has the cloth interior. And they are all slicktops. Looking hard at the market again lots of high priced junk.

    Insurance screwed me on the value of my daily. Do not ever use Geico for collision. Anyway got the car back today and pulled the seats. They fit pretty good with only some slight mods needing done. Will also need to make a center console to trim it up. Can't see what I'm taking about in the photo because I strategically framed my shot not to show the junk on the floor. IMG_20220928_175924.jpg

    Just gave them a little adjustment on where I would have the seating position and it feels pretty damn good. Even better then the car. My weighted shifter probably won't work. To much slop in the bushings pretty sure it will fall out of gear. It will have to wait till I get the cd009 under it.

    Insurance companies ALWAYS screw you over.

    Have you replaced the bushings in the shifter housing? If you did, are they the right bushings? I had a Celica that I tried replacing the bushings and it wouldn't tighten up. Found out that trans set-up had a "buffer" that fell out of the shift arm.
    I like the crew at "Marlin Crawler", they ask the rught questions and tyoically can get the right parts for your Toyota transmissions.

    IMG_20220929_173234.jpg Did a little cleaning and started getting the seats bolted in. The drivers side lines up in front but one of my holes isn't threaded. Not a big deal. The passenger side is more of a problem. The rail rides on the transmission tunnel. Funny thing is the drivers side is closer to the center then the passenger. Could be because of the t bone I had. It was a pretty significant hit on the drivers side. I was looking at putting the seat belts from the is300 in but after really looking at them I have no way to trim it up good. Threw the floor mats in for the hell of it.

    On another note realizing I'm a bit optimistic for the things I want to do with the space I have. Don't have a good flat space and not trying to piss off the landlord. Going to take a few things like the transmission and all the parts that go with it. I'll pull the ecu and stuff needed for a 2jz swap along with the lsd and coilovers. Figure those things will not take up much space while I put the full hilux 300 on the back burner. Pretty easy to find another wreck for cheep so not like I'm sitting on much gold.
