Now, on with the images! For reference, Kaleb has a '93 Nissan Maxima, with 99% of all mods available. www.kalebonline.com
A nice side angle picture of my Cressida.
How we save money on boxes where I work (hehe)
Kaleb's car and my car on lifts in the shop
Front strut and spring
Rear wheelwell - spring and shock
Muffler tip, tow tab
One dirty Cressida! Underbelly shot.
Differential - Angle shot
My rear seats in the warehouse
Interior shot without rear seats. Look at all the junk that fell through over 12 years!
Outside side angle shot after hours of washing and detailing
Same day, right rear upper...
Ooo that's shiny chrome
What did I just say?
So clean you could eat off of it. But that would just make it dirty again :)
Brian's cool 200SX SE-R with a 70 something shot of NOS.
Kaleb getting ready to pull off old stock crank pulley and put on Unorthodox Racing underdrive pulley ON HIS MAXIMA
Me with my dash apart. Lousy Jensen speaker shown.
Kaleb's VG30E without a crank pulley - on his MAXIMA
The 'key' (MAXIMA)
Closeup of timing belt on crankshaft gear... fairly good shape. Don't know where all that oil came from though. This is on his MAXIMA
Thrust washer and key in place - MAXIMA
My dash back on. I need to dremel out some of that metal so more sound gets through, you think?
Kaleb's brand new underdrive pulley. Very first one ever installed on a VG30E. ON HIS MAXIMA
Yuck... two-tone Honda..
New Lexus IS-300 like tail lamps on an Accord. Look pretty nice.
Same, brake lights on.
My Philips Xenon HID kit! (Which has since been sold)
Bad close up
Little better close up...
See where the bubble is? That's where the xenon is and the two electrodes that make the arc are... duh.. :)
Stock lights on
Stock again, no flash
Stock beam on road, barely visible. Get ready to see the difference :)
HID light on, not installed in lamp, just resting on something. (also I don't have a hood insulator in this pic but have a brand new one now)
In the beginning, there was no light.
Warming up - only a couple hundred milliseconds after switching on lamps.
Peak light output
Lamps warmed up. Notice crap beam pattern... sniff sniff.. :-(
Inside the magic - HID ballast open
Other side - circuit etches
1 of 3 cats on 1 of 3 monitors.. Ignore the mess.
The day the ice took over everything
That's a cold Cressida!
The next few pictures are from DYNO DAY at Maxus 2000.
A MKIV Supra that showed up. Schweet...
The other side
Random Maxima on (used) (crap) dynojet.
Oh my gosh!!! It's Andi's Supra!
Awww baby... I think I'm getting sexually aroused
Just look at that ass hehe
Some guy's MR2. Nice!
Maxima's everywhere!! Aaahhhh!!!
Kaleb on the Dyno. His headlamps were dirty so he wrote 'dyno master' on them with his finger. See the guy on the right? He is the guy who is running the dynojet. He's the one who claimed that the tach reading on a 4th gen Max was not showing up because the fuel tank was low. He's also the reason I didn't waste my $45 to dyno my car that day. What an idiot..
Changing out a y-pipe
Lauren's CRX and new Miata with custom roll bar. This guy's also got a supercharged 4th gen Maxima. Fast and awesome.
Picture of a Sunset I took while driving my Cressida back from Louisiana one day.
Pic 2 of Sunset
Hitting 123,456.7 miles
Y2K. Kaleb and I laughed at the way people were reacting months before Jan. 1st 2000, and December 31st we decided to play around with a little satire and put this on my car.
Ever wanted to know what a (dirty) 1988 Toyota Cressida looks like from underneath? Probably not, but I took all these pictures nonetheless :-)
All these pictures taken on 1-18-2001
Exhaust manifold, oxygen sensor...
Oxygen sensor, oil filter, motor mount, alternator in background
Exhaust manifold again, oil filter again, O2 sensor again, just another shot....
Out some more, lots visible in this one
Now, on to the scrolling shots - I placed the camera on a shop towel on the ground and took a picture. Then moved the camera about 2 feet and took another picture. And another... you get the idea, it's just the whole car. Sorry it's not aligned well...
Gas tank, muffler, differential, shock, spring, wheels, etc...
Rear shock and spring. Also visible is the sway bar inlink and bushings
Rear control arm, exhaust piping, a bit of the propeller shaft, differential, drive shafts, parking brake cable...
Same thing, different angle
Transmission fluid pan, output of transmission, propeller shaft, catalytic converter.
This pic is on the intake (left) part of the motor. You can see the fuel filter, lots of hoses, my amp wire and fuse, and a small part of the compressor.
A Pirelli P400 tire tread with many miles on it.
A Phantom tire (Discount tire brand.. ugh) tread with the inner part worn severely. What the heck? I had it aligned right after I got them and again five months later.
Well that's it for now.
