[QLD-BNE] JZX-100 Chaser : Weekend fun - *RIP*

Recommended Posts

I used to be on this forum a long time back when I was new to the community and the car modding game itself. It's been quite sometime now, have been lucky enough to meet some genuine people in the crowd of cybertrolls and what not :)

So here's my take on doing up a JZX100...

This will be a lengthy to the point thread so I'll try get through it all...

Got rid of the HKS canon:

Had a change of mood so decided on some other mods (besides cleaning it)

Auto had open wheeler 3.9 ratio, got it a torsen from a manual (3.7 which I still have to change to 3.9)

While I waited on more parts, went to the drags:

Thanks for the positive comments ^_^

hit a bit of a snag.. the cf grille doesn't fit 100% .. should've known better than to buy off Ebay Hong Kong ... getting a full refund but ofcourse I need to cop the delivery fee back..

A fellow JZX100 mate has been kind enough to donate me a standard replacement.

I'll be getting my car detailed by https://www.facebook.com/autoglamour?fref=ts - this Wed.

Still pending new coil overs, front upper control arms and some smaller interior bit from Amayama. Should be ready for its feature photoshoot later this month :ninja:

A while back I discovered detailparadise.com.au and I was fascinated by the work I saw there .. here are some examples naturally I HAD to get me some of that kinda exterior loving..
You can find a detailer for your area here

I met the detailer from the link above and due to his helpful nature and cool attitude towards car modding; I made it my aim to refer any and every possible detail request his way..
So far I've had my Civic done, my cousin has had 5 of his family cars done (sisters/parents) and Quarkz's ex-Chaser was also done by him.

As I was never 100% happy with the panels on my JZX due to the minor imperfections so I didn't go ahead and book in a detail .. that was back in 2010.. Now after having had all the imperfections removed from the main panels and sprayed.. it was time..

Today I went to drop it off and enjoyed a scenic drive..

and here I left it all snug
20130611_170711_zpsea6ae1cd.jpg

I'll be picking it up on Thr evening / Friday evening .. possibly will get my other barge done too.

Do you like crusty badges?? nah I didn't think so - naturally Amayama you done it again!! <3 if you reading this Justin .. keep up the ****
fantastic work..

So as the ebay supplier turned out to be a headache... and I promptly sent the grill back as they agreed to refund me.

Was rather annoying but a fellow JZX forum member stepped up and became my hero when he sent me his grill.. dude didn't even let me pay postage...

20130617_202844_zps98246229.jpg

and Jesse Streeter is the mof'n legend...

For the JZX - the Cusco arms, new chamois set, TRD shift knob and a Rasberry Pi board which I intend to convert into an obd reader..

Just need the front badge and that should finish it off the way I like.
20130622_124910_zps0158dd4c.jpg

Incoming front end suspension refresh on Tuesday:
- New oem tie rod ends
- New hub components, seals, hub, bearings basically the entire hub replaced
- Cusco upper control arms
- New oem front brake dust covers
- New oem ball joints

These bits will join the existing party which consists of:
- Cusco swaybar
- Cusco triangular bar
- Toms front chassis braces
- TRD caster arm bushes
- High tensile bolt replacements

For anyone curious what about the rear.. that's already been sorted a while back
- TRD diff bushes (4 piece)
- TRD camber arm bushes
- Ikeya cradle mount inserts
- 501 works diff - chassis brace
- KTS rear sway bar
- Adjustable swaybar end links
- Every single bolt replaced with either new oem or high tensile aftermarket spec.

I MIGHT consider silk roads camber/toe/traction arm set else I'll get KTS in the event I need such adjustments otherwise wheels sit fine as is and oem holding up solid.

Unlimited cash supply?

I wish :p ... but honestly - the above parts didn't cost as much as they sound they would've.

I see you've already read my little write up here - check out prices there too :) , you'll be surprised.
