I hadn'tposted it since I joined, so here

These pics are a bit old, but the car hasn't changed since... except for the engine bay, there'* a STB there now, and you can see the non-original master cylinder (previous owner replaced it) that doesn't get interfered with when the STB is installed... the cap is just behind the bar

It works for you because its reading the images from your temp directory not the web. I get a Server will not respond.

Thanks for the praise, guys, but the car is far from perfect :(

It'* sat in storage for a year so far while my dad'* driving the old '85 Toyota Cressida until it dies... the body is old and rusty, but the motor is running like a champ and refuses to die. It was replaced a year ago by a '98 Altima... but the Toyota refuses to pass on... so the Bonny sits. The STB hasn't even been put to use yet

Current Problems/Imperfections:

• Power seats barely work. Driver'* seat only goes front back and that'* it, and the passenger seat has been ghetto-rigged with a switch on the side of the centre console beside your (left, duh) knee. Moves only fore/aft.

• It'* recently been leaking a teeny bit of fuel while it'* been in the garage. Nothing major.

• General electrical gremlins. Grounds, relays, sensors, etc...

• The paint is not perfect (not original either). Just under the right taillight where there'* a seam where the quarter panel meets the plastic or whatever piece under the taillight... the paint'* bubbling and has broken through slightly. The rear fender flare has some bubbling to it as well.

• When we bought the car, it was missing a grille. So we got one from the scrapyard... however, some damage to the hood that was fixed was still visible... a crack running from left to right along the front lip area of the hood has some bubbles around it.

It'* not a bad, considering we got the thing for $2000. It'* probably worth slightly more, as problems have been fixed

edit: oh, and you can see the crack running down the taillight... moisture got in during the winter, and froze over... leaving... that.

i just thought i would mention to you, that is what the origninal ABS master cylinder looks like. 91 was the only year in the 87-91 to use that system... you dont have the Teeves IV system which is found on the 87-90. or its something like that, LOL!

Devon

BTW I have exactly like yours, only mines a 90!
