Hello, you have a very nice car.
I restore only a four-door, I have a few questions.
You change the front suspension or left home, the car behaves with another motor, as far as I understand rear disc brakes do as it did.
Thanks in advance

Hi,

Front and rear suspension have been modified along with disk brakes.

Thank you

Did you have any trouble getting the oil pan to clear the cross member?

I dropped a 7M into my '73 MarkII, and needed to swap the oil pans.

Thinking about a 1JZ in the future.

The crossmember in my car looks like this:

I really appreciate all the comments by my fellow JNC's. You guys are awesome :tu:

So last week I was cruising on freeway and felt like hood is going to fly open and had to back off pushing the car further , I then went to work on doing something about it and came up with custom hood pins to secure the hood from flying open. What do you guys think????

This looks really good. I had a similar issue with my TE27. Question, do your hood pins show through the top of the hood? I always wanted something a little more secure than the latch alone and this design appears to be it but I also don't care for the look of the hood pins showing outside the car.

Thanks Nic,

Hood pins are functional but I simply dont care how they look.
The whole idea behind this setup was to secure the hood little better without hood-pins showing.
So no drilling holes on top skin of the hood instead I secured them on to "secured" subframe as you can see in the pictures :tu:
