    My RX30 Cressida - Norwegian!

    this in my baby!

    bougth it from my grandfather... he got it new in '77 , and it has now done 86000km..

    this is done : bixenon kit , alpine 5.25" typ.R comp kit front, alpine 6.5" typ.R comp kit rear , jbl 4 channel amp , alpine mp3 head unit....

    lowered : volvo 460 front springs - cut. mitsubishi galant turbo shocks (fits good , only 7mm spacer in the bottom of the shock.
    vw passat rear springs - cut . mb c-class kyb shock.
    25mm spacers in front , 30mm back , 18" TSW Volcano with 225,40-18 tires.



























    so this is mine , sorry it there is some type error , thats just bad english but I see some people have a little front diffuser / spoiler under the bumper.... how do I get one ?

    Cheap way to get that lip use one off a Mk1 Golf GTi.

    Great car! Credit to your grandfather for looking after it so well, and to you for taking it on and improving it. How did you end up with that combination of springs and shocks?!

    Bodywork looks very good, always the most important thing on an old Japanese car.

    thanks! and for the tip!!!

    the combination is greeeeeat! firm and good both in front and rear! handles great in corners.... but do anyone know what steering wheel I could use , a bit smaller , and not so thin! it hurts when driving long and active in corners....

    and since it's a european car , it has the 18R engine , and I have polished the head cover , the fuel pump , and repainted the air filter box and the radiator.


    plans are : make 2" exhaust , get recaro seats from Opel Manta B and make them look just like the original toyota seats... to sit better! but I need tip what steering wheel to use , that is good - and looks good in the car(colours etc)

    God dag, very clean, especially the interior! You could feed your baby off of it. Welcome to JNC!
