  1. I need help getting started on my old daily. its a 90 lexus es250. I remember you had a dream post with a 89 camry. basically the same chassis. If you can point me to places that can help me get started that would be awesome.

    no idea with the camry, the one I had posted was a photoshop, there is basically nothing available for those cars. but as with all things worth doing, you have to do it yourself. this means finding a more popular sports car that had a very similar or shared suspension components and doing some custom work to fit the coilovers (not sure but maybe the celica of the same years shares suspension parts, maybe larger brakes from the celica would fit?), also the engine is a 3sfe in the camry, same block as the 3sge engine in the 86-89 celica, and the 3sgte turbo engine in the celica all trac and the mr2 turbo.
    basically it’s all up to you, find a good forum that deals with those celicas maybe.

    good luck.

    i found this. i thought it is clean. i don’t like the whole put-a-bike-rack-on movement, but the look is clean. I found a guy who worked with several es250s. I started with some coilovers that fit 91-93 celica FWD. the doing some basic maintenance engine work. I am basically going for a more updated restoration. I am not going to try to beef up the engine or anything, just a basic tune up later on for the engine block so the car can get all 156 glorious hps back from the 90s. I am leaving the interior as is for now and won’t bother with the dash or center console.

    thx for the start though. cheers.
