    1987 MX73 Cressida Sedan Build

    Traded my old white CB7 for this one on Sunday Jan. 5th 2014, 3 days later slid into a curb so she was down for a week. This year came with oem red courtesy lights, factory lsd, factory sunroof, rear disc, and some other goodies. I plan to make it a canyon/mountain and occasional drift car. And have a show set up as well. This was my dream car so she is a keeper for sure! But onto the queen / hoe.



    Gotta roll the fenders more to make those fit, 15x10 -38 in the rear and -25 in the front. Yes, negative, no mistake haha.

    First crash, 3 days after I got it. Was making a turn and hit a big bump, spun out and owned a curb. No one got hurt luckily. :tu: Had to get new studs, lca, rotor, hub, etc. So went to the junkyard an pulled one off with the lca, hub, & studs. The axel is usable but the boot is ripped. So my next pay check I will be getting a new one.

    Getting rid of the pipes soon, gonna go 2.5" straight pipe, resonator and an Apexi Muffler. Should sound pretty nice since its a straight 6 and a resonator will make it nice and deep. Also got a small shift knob that came of a tercel 4wd that had a separate knob for fwd and 4wd. Lovin it. Also bought a MOMO shift knob that i'm selling, its not threaded just the screw on. So we will see. I want a TRD knob for it or cash to get my accord done lol.

    Just needs some tlc is all. Wheel setup Idk yet, just getting her put all together and as she should first. I already ordered stock bulbs, HID's cut out too much. Safety hazard and I hate em. And the 6m is just a bit stronger 5m, 3.0L with more torque and hp.
