- i have just recently acquired the donor drivetrain for my datsun from this 240sx with a SR20DEThttp://forums.nicoclub.com/my-checkerboard-240-the-a-drivetrain-4-the-datsun-t548855.html
i plan on ultimately having the prelude for a comuter, and the datsun as my baby... it want it done RIGHT... ive been down the road of a car restore in the past. i know it wasnt easy, but it was definetly rewarding. i have the help of a few friends of mine that comprise "team internal combustion" - http://www.myspace.com/internal_combustion07
, and https://www.facebook.com/InternalCombustion
i look forward to this journey, however am struggling through the trials of working full time, supporting a family, and living 1.5hrs away from work. i know that times are hard for everybody, and for that i thank God for my job, and the support ive recieved. i havnt done much of anything to the car as of yet, i have cut the springs (1.5 coils) in the front, and put some old school "mags" on it that i picked up for cheap. id like to start on the SR20 swap sooner than later, but im also trying not to get side tracked from my existing prelude project or ill never get done! lol.. knowledgable input is greatly appreciated.
like ive said so many times before. a picture is worth a thousand words sooo....
here is the car in the woods where i got it (this is the literal CL picture)
this is me and my buddy towing it home
first trial of FWD offset wheels... they were a NO GO -
chopped the springs (pictured is a friend of mine, NOT ME) -
