I wouldn't do it with a USDM Crown, but those are much more common down under. I think it's cool that someone did it, just not me!

Its been awhile since I updated my project. I haven't done too much to the crown other than drive it around every once in awhile but I am getting ready to do some body work and paint. I would like to do a full on restoration, but for now I am going to get the body straightend out and a good coat of paint and enjoy it some more. So the last couple pieces I need are...

Image
The front left fender trim piece...

...and the trunk lid trim piece.

So if you guys could keep and eye out for me that would be awesome. I will post some pics as I get going on the body work stuff.

Thanks for looking

Just a quick pic for you guys. The rear quarter was covered in body filler and is looking like the whole right side of the car had some minor body damage. Let the Body Work Begin :?

as far as the lowering goes when I did the teardown i removed the springs and let it sit on the bump stops to see how it sat and where all the suspension bits ended up. I took measurements and I am working on fabing up a custom coilover setup to get it as low as possible without cutting anything up.

I did not rebuild the 2M it has a little over 100K miles and is in good shape what I did was freshen up the gaskets. I happened to come across a gasket set on ebay awhile back. As far as the carb goes I heard a word on the street that a Weber DFV carb would fit directly on the stock manifold with a little bit of bolt hole massaging on the carb so I picked one up cheap and gave it a shot and sure enough it works, just need to make sure it seals up nice. Oh and need to fabricate linkage for throttle and kick down if it is an automatic. The deal with the DFV is that the linkage rotates clockwise verses the more popular DGV style Weber which rotates counter clock wise.
