So, as some of you may remember, My S13 used to look like this
Well that all changed one night, when someone decided it would be a great idea to rake their lawn into the street and leave all that s*** there. October 10th late at night it was raining pretty darn bad, and was foggy as hell, when I came driving by that said lawn. The leaves in the road created a slip & slide, which led straight into a large boulder. Results were this
So I stripped it down and had insurance take it on its way. Decided I would start over fresh. They also gave me money for some aftermarket parts, which i kept haha. My stockpile of parts eventually made it to my room.
So I searched a lot since I toasted the car, and had no luck. My buddy recently told me there was a nice looking hatch in Cape Cod, and I should give the dude a call. So naturally I was pumped there may be a nice black hatchback to replace my old one, and this one supposedly has some goodies in it. I called the guy up and after a few calls, and many text messages, we had a day set up to take a look at it. I hauled my a** down south on Sunday, November 1'st. When I pulled up it looked clean, besides a s***ty patch jobbed hatch which needed replacing. Eh, it's replaceable. Few rust spots here and there, but nothing un-fixable. Paint and body looked straight. The owner was a straight forward, honest dude, who did half a** work, but the major things seemed done right. After a lot of stress and a huge headache, I ended up leading a tow truck from the cape back home with a new toy. Here she is. First few pictures are after I installed my front coilovers, rolled the front fenders, tucked the harnesses, and installed my steering wheel and hub. I now have my rear coilovers on rolled the rear fenders, and also installed my PBM toe arms, Project Nissan RUCA's, and lower tie brace on. The car came with a J30 differential and axles, a Drive Shaft Shop aluminum one piece drive shaft, energy suspension bushings all around, and all the other things pictured. Stoked? Youbetcha!
Next on my to-do list, was finish up installing the coilovers (which I hate and are being replaced by some D-MAX coilovers which are coming friday) and my 5 lug swap.
It still needed some more flush-ness, so I ordered some 5mm spacers. I also did some re-upholstering, a battery relocation. I did the glove box and arm rest in black suede, and did the headliner in plush black headliner fabric.
After that I dialed in my stance a little more, even though the coilovers are getting replaced in a week.
I then got a small feature on http://www.hellaflush.com
