now after 2 days i've pollished up all the chrome, which was in surprisingly good condition. i've polished up the centerline wheels that also came with the car the rears are 15x9 -30. i've put in my quick release hub and wood grain steering wheel, the Mark II seat covers i for the cressida work on these seats as well as the flares i have for it so it'll cover up the bondo job on the rear fenders that never got finished by the previous owner. i'll also be pulling interior parts off my totaled lexus ls400 and putting em in. also the inner driver side head light will be removed and i'll be running the lines for the oil cooler, through it hopefully i can get it mounted soon. heres a few more pics i took today after some more work

rear seat covers

got my sun visors grab handles and rear view mirror form my ls400

the flares and wheels

the lovely chrome

so far this car has parts from a 77 corona (the 18rc motor) 77 toyota pick up (5 speed tranny) 85 corolla (front seats) 71 celica (rear seats) and gx7 cressy (seat covers and flares) 95 ls400 (interior parts) and a mx7 (oil cooler once its on) it's a bunch of cars rolled into one haha
if anyone knows where to get parts i'd love them lol. i really need weather stripping, a driver side front fender, a headliner and a lock for the trunk. thanks guys and i'll keep adding pics as i get more done to the car
