Welcome. Again a Hiace in a country where it was never sold, nice!
(also nice car in front of that haha)

I think it is a Japanese import version with RHD? Because the sliding door is on the other side? Edit: also by the looks of your username hehe

Anyway, please tell me what you did with the windows!  Shocked Did that came orginally with the van? Or is that DIY?
I got sliding windows in the front side windows which I like, but this would be great for the rear side windows.

My windows are identical, so i guess it was an option or a popular mod!

Yes, the van was imported from Japan. The vehicle in front in the photo is a Toyota Soarer. We have a small group here in NY we call Japanese Steel Auto Group. In addition to mine and the Soarer, we have 2 buddies with Skylines, a Toyota Mark II, a Daihatsu Hijet Pick-Up and a Honda Acty Pick-Up. All RHD.

The windows came like that. It is a simple latch system that allows me to open them like that or close them.

Next step is wheels and a slight drop.

The photos were from a ride I did a few weeks ago in NYC called Street Icons. It was a call to all 90's Japanese cars. If you search Street Icons on Instagram or YouTube you will find some pics/vids.

I see 2.4 EFI. So is the 2RZ-FE or do you have the diesel?

Yeah I saw that it's a Soarer, with 2JZ or 1UZ?
Now, did you know that these both engines fit in the Hiace? Okay, maybe with some customization Razz but people did it.

I like the latch system, I thought about it but then I prefer to have it vertically.
However, I did not know it was delivered originally. But just like sliding windows, they are hard to find, definitely in Europe. Rest of the parts is easy.
I have to check if this could be done the DIY way. Reusing the original window glass but then put it ontop of the rubber lining or something?

It looks quite cool but means you can never have the window open more than very slightly.
It's a pretty simple system though, one could almost use 6mm polycarbonate and tinting as an alternative source of the glass if you wanted to experiment.
