    So life in the rotary lane ended well considering... learned loads, broke the car and got cash back and decided I needed something more boss. The mazda was awesome, great chassis, weak boxes and engines are junk tbh compared to the older 13b's but with a rotten chassis it was time to fuck it off.

    So between jobs and cavorting around Europe I bought a head shop to sell smoking supplies as a living. Since oil and gas has died a death here I needed to find a way to continue this lifestyle and I think ive found my calling in life.

    Anyway...

    I picked up this beater for 2.5 x bitches. deals.

    As you can see its clearly not mint and is missing some minor parts but has R154 and 1JZ-GTE. It was perfect.

    Its just landed and about to pick it up once I pay the fees so this/next week. Probably loads of fucked shit ive not noticed/been informed about but spec wise its pretty slim. part of an exhaust, some spring/damper combo, some shite wheels and an air filter.

    Need some interior tat, TV's, BN kit, lows, wheels, lock and some pink paint and that should do it.

    It will be good to be back in the game

    Thanks for the optimism guys!

    Just off the phone to Datsun shipping, they got my car, got my cash and I'm just waiting for it to be cleared and I can collect it next week at some point, Not bad considering it left japan on the 18th Oct. so kinda cought with my pants down, I was expecting a few more weeks at least so its kinda of a last minute rush as always. I wouldn't have it any other way tbh...

    Got my eyes on a pair of 18x10.5j D9R's for the rear and have a set of CST 17x9.5j's for the front sitting at home to get me going until I financially recover from HMRC....

    thanks. em, at the moment ive got a set of CST's left over from the RX8 in bronze 17x9.5 et15 flavour for the front and got my eye on a set of D9R's for the rear but I didn't expect the car to be here so quick with most taking much longer I got caught with my cock out when the bill dropped so early

    went down to Newcastle yesterday to pick it up. everything went smoothly except I stalled it like a cunt trying to get it on the back of the van. it was as described.

    It was an auto originally but thinks its in park and has an engine light on. seems to be genuine miles, and all but the parking poll and stereo work

    Its not a show winner, has lots of small dings and imperfections on the body work, has clearly been in a small crash but everything seems ok apart from what you can see but I'm waiting to hear the news on the MOT side...

    So first impressions are good, it was as described and it fired up without any hesitation or shit sounds. Its on some spring/shock non adjustable combo but they share suspension parts with altezza/is200 so on the lookout for some second hand parts so I can slam it into the ground and sort wheel fitment.

    it needs a fair bit of work to get it drift worthy so looks like its going to be a grim Christmas at the jites household this winter....

    So far it needs:

    Diff
    Exhaust
    Lock
    Basic cooling mods
    Coilovers
    Clutch
    BN
    Pink
    Lows
    Wheels

    Should have it registered soon so I can get it home and take it apart. I hope it fits in the garage, its a huge land barge

    Got to thank Marcus at MJ Garage in Glasgow, dude is super legit.

    Will look epic in pink.

    Interested to see what you do with this, especially interested in the wiring for the manual swap, JZX110s share quite a few bits with JZS171s dont they? As theres bugger all info out there for my Crown.

    I couldn't tell you exactly what parts but I know the 110 shares all of the suspension from the altezza, has a 1ZJ like the 100 but with ECTS-I wankery that is a piles of shit. Gearbox, diff and clutch I believe to all be the same as 90/100 stuff and the exhaust is different I think too.

    Once I get it home ill check with parts off of mints chaser what actually fits like rad and intercooler kinda thing as it would save a small fortune being able to run some jzx100 parts

    That's all I know at the moment until I get my hands on it. I still have to do research myself on this

    Yeah JZX110 you should be able to do a fair bit with Altezza and Aristo stuff, judging by the discussions on the Aussie forums.

    Same drive by wire throttle rubbish as I have. Assume the engines all pretty much stock, any plans on more power?
