    Default 97 toyota windom vip project manual swap

    So over the next year the plan is to paint, lower, do minor body work and all around get my 97 windom into a clean vip format. Does anyone know places that handle two tone paint jobs, wire tucks, and decent price to quality? ad_1496161492716.jpg

    So you plan on going from not being able to diagnose the source of a squealing noise (http://forums.780tuners.com/showthre...10#post1872310) to doing a manual transmission swap in a car that never came with a manual transmission in less than a year?

    You are either a very quick learner or have pretty deep pockets if you're paying someone else to do that level of custom work for you.

    Obviously I don't know how much you paid for your car but if I had to speculate, I'd say to do everything you just listed will cost you between 3 and 4 times what you paid for the car itself.
    But the big difference between a right winger writing for a right wing media source, and left winger writing for a left wing source. Is that everything he wrote here is true and factual, not just somebodies opinion piece that is spinning vague facts to try and support their poorly thought out opinion.

    Im totally for any and all builds. I get it. But of all cars to buy RHD (these are essentially RHD camrys, with a higher price tag) , why would you get one of these? I dont get it.
