Here's my POS. Previously owned/parted out by Clint G. When I heard he was parting it out, I couldn't help but think about what happened to his old gray car RIP and I couldn't let that happen to this one so I decided to buy the shell and save it from a sure death. I picked up a 1JZ August of 2012 with the intention of putting it in my white 87 but plans changed and the motor has been sitting ever since. Now I am just trying to piece together the swap and get this thing back on the road.
Enjoy!

This thread should be titled 'THIS IS HOW YOU DO A MK3 RIGHT'.

Outstanding work. Nice roller, nice parts selection, this is a MK3 done right if I've ever seen it.

whats with the rug on the dash? seen that on a bunch of cars.
keep the sun off of it, uv's = bad for older dashes, thats why alot are cracked.
Ive personally never had a cracked dash in the 4 ive owned but living in a humid ass manisnowba might have something to do with it.

youre probably right, i havnt seen a dash without a single crack here in tx...most dashes i see are at junkyards, but still, most of those-including mine looks like the grand canyon going through em.
for now im going to fill the cracks with some sort of foam and cover it with a similar setup, i elected for the suede upgrade that im hoping will look just a little bit better than carpet.
