    Upper control arms ball joint...

    Probably shouldn’t have used the term casting. I meant they were not rebuilding old arms but were instead starting from scratch. Makes me question the strength of their process as well. Glad I bought a new set before they were obsolete but that won’t help next time. :\ Jeff

    Project 88 MKIII - A Calgary build

    New car is looking pretty good. My only thought when I saw it was that I had wished you'd done the 89+ mirrors, not a big deal but it would really tie the car together, haha. Sad to hear about the '88 though. :( Jeff

    Upper control arms ball joint...

    I can’t recall seeing any aftermarket that remanufactured the stock ones, though I’m sure it’s been done. Most aftermarket I’ve seen are new castings. There are slight variations between them and the originals. Jeff

    interior color difference by generation

    Yes, beige was pre-89 and a lighter colour than the replacement 89+ brown colour. Jeff

    Upper control arms ball joint...

    The boots are still available from Toyota if you wanted to go that way, as far as the arms go, I've not seen anyone replace the joint in a stock arm. I bought a new set of upper arms a couple years ago from Toyota, but yeah they're gone now. Aftermarket arms are the only answer at this point. Jeff

    For North America: 86-88: Beige 86-90: Maroon 86-90: Grey (86-88) or Medium Grey (89-90) - These are the same colour, they just changed the name. 86-92: Blue (86-88) or Deep Blue (89-92) - These are the same colour, they just changed the name. 89-91: Brown 91-92: Deep Red 91-92: Shadow Grey -...

    Tommy Kaira Shift Knob

    OEM and Tuned by Tommy Kaira cannot really be used in the same sentence. Toyota never used this knob, therefore it's not OEM. Pretty much every Toyota manual transmission shift knob for the last 50 years has had the same thread, so that's not really an indication of anything per se. As far as...

    Cool/Rare parts thread?

    Yeah, well, I guess ideally it would replace the valve covers and just be part of the engine. So you’d be looking at the engine. Why have 3 covers when one will do? Haha. Wouldn’t be nice to access the coils though, that’s for sure. It’s not a very good idea. Jeff

    Cool/Rare parts thread?

    Yeah the 2JZ wasted spark coils work well. I am using them on my 4A-GZE as well. I like the cover. Not sure exactly what I’d change but something to make it seem more 80’s. Haha. Alternatively maybe make something that looks cool that covers everything including the valve covers or...

    Figgie's build: Project Rodknox

    Always good to see people try to bring vehicle back from the brink. Looking good. Just read through the thread and had one point to make if it's helpful. The EFI water temp sensor connector is still available from Toyota, part number is 90980-10736. TE/AMP Sealed Sensor Connector (SSC) series...
