94_240sx vert pics

Postby 94_240sx » Mon Feb 19, 2007 4:57 am

Guys! Pics are finally here. This is very first time posting pictures of my car. It's not hardcore or anything. I just wanted to keep it clean, running and make sure everything works w/some mild cosmetic and performance mods. All the repair, maintenance, body works(except painting), installations and details done by me. Got it when she had 92,000 miles and has 140,000 miles as of today. No dings, dents or chips on the body and paint is original. Front and rear bumpers were repainted several years ago due to cracks, peels and stuff. Feel free to ask any questions. I'll add some comments on top of each pic. Enjoy!!!

I dug up this old picture.

Yup! It's low, and I love it that way. Road is pretty good around where I live, so I decided to go low.

Weather was great to take it out for a spin and take some pics.

I need to roll rear fenders.

It looks like Panda. Depressed Panda.

Side shots. IMO, 240 verts are best looking from the side.

Getting some sun.

I wasn't a big fan of stock spoiler, but after I added Silvia rear valences, they look REARLLY good together.

It was warm enough to drop the top.

This turned out to be my favorite picture.

Nothing can beat nice weather and droptop combination. Life is good...

Interior picture. Everything's in like new condition. Can't wait to get rid of auto tranny.

s14 seats and I have original vert floormats in mint condition. They still have tags attached.

Door trim

It's an original engine and I never pulled it out. It's been running strong. Had an air filter inside of engine bay, but moved it out recently. Never seen a pic of black Injen CAI w/extension on other cars. Everyone has polished one.

Came back home and with my wife's 3kgt. We always say it looks like hungry catfish. I'm planning on getting S-Techs for her this Spring. It needs a drop badly.

This is one of my favorite angles to look at.

I'm very proud of this picture.

Some random pics that show process and future plans.

I hope you guys like it.

WOW

I can't believe you've been holding out on us that long.. What a spectacular car! I'd have posted a ton of pictures long ago.

Truly beautiful. I never saw a set of white wheels that i really thought looked nice... until today! They look fantastic on the car.. great fit too! The ride height is perfect as well..

How did you get such clean door panels? I've never seen them in that kind of shape. Look brand new!

Hope your not copywriting those pics.. .I'm going to save them to our gallery and get them 240sxconvertible.com soon.

Thanks for sharing!

very nice pictures man. What model wheels are those? They look really good in white. And as many 240's as I've seen, I've never seen that front lip. What is it???? lol. I've seen just the small black lip that came on most SE's. But never the white and the black.

I've spent long time to get the right ride height. It's been fun playing with coilovers. Luckily, door panels were originally in good condition and I made sure they stay that way for sure. Yes, you can use pics if you want.

I had main crank seal leak, valve cover leak, p/s hose leak x 2, leaky water pump, so it was just a mess down there. I spent days and days to clean it up, and I think I used several buckets of degreaser. Once it was cleaned, it was easy to maintain that way.

It's a painted SE lip plus add on rubber Nismo lip spoiler. I added it for a protection. Nismo lip is kinda popular among 350z guys to protect front bumper, and japanparts.com had it on sale for $15 or somthing like that long time back.

I love this car, so I care about it a lot. Wheels are LM-GT4 knock offs. Got them when I went to Japan for a vacation a couple of years ago. Was looking for white M2 DT-05Rs, but ended up buying these. Brand new $80 each. Original price was $120 each, but store owner wanted to get rid of them quick. He said white ones never sell. It's 17lb each and he didn't want to tell me much about it, so don't know the details. But he said quality was good and didn't get any complaints from buyers. It wasn't fun taking JR back to the hotel with 4 huge boxes, but had no problem bring them back to the States. Yes, I do know it's ricey, but they are alright and can't beat the price and looks.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Kazama tie rod ends, Nismo power brace, trunk strut bar and sub frame collars are on the way. Next is Progress sway bars, SLP tension rods, SPL big brake upgrade and 5 speed swap.

I have no idea. My cousin who briefly lived there at the time took me to this area where some wheel stores were next each other. I remember I took a green JR from Shinjuku and switched to red. I took a set on display. That was all they had. URAS NS-01 is the closest wheels you can find, but you must go for 5 lug and white wheels are not available. zerothread?id=208884

I would suggest M2 DT-05R. They are fairly cheap, sizes are really good and 4 lugs are also available. Hyper Silver and gun metal look killer. Gun metal has the most sizes.http://www.m2-hanbai.com/m2_ne....html

Thanks for posting pics, man. White on white is not my personal style, but I really admire your car. Your rims go perfect with the rest of the car, and you have nice flushness and stance. Nice trunk lock. Just super clean all around.

We have the same light setup (red+clear back, all clear front). I dig it.

I love the look of you Vert. See... So what if the everyone said the white on white is 80's,... long live the 80's then.. Nice clean and understated. Just enough pop to catch the eye, but not so much to make someone say "what a ".. I like how clean the underside looks. I hope mine will look that clean someday.... much to be proud of man.. Looks good...

Ish, zenkii, donmeca, Brian, goingtoless... Thanks for the compliments. They are 17x8 +38 with 235/40 tires, but I installed 15mm Ichiba spacers all the way around, so offset is +23. It looks like that's the best I can do with the setup. If I go for 245 tires or 20mm spacers, I need to pull rear fenders which I don't want to do.

I don't know why you were hesitant to post pics. Your car is nice.

BTW, I took your advice about those "silver" amber bulbs made for clear turn signals. Look and work great!

I was going to post pics after the brake upgrade, but it seemed like taking forever to get there. Anyway, I must say pressure is gone now.

Yeah, during daytime, lights look cooler with silver bulbs in them. Actually, front clears are D-Speed half amber/half regular lights unlike eBay clears. Side markers are Uras 180sx ones. Tail, front and side lights have all same pattern when you look at them, so they looks like a set.

Damn bro, Im extremely impressed. Like others have said, those are the -only- white wheels I have ever liked.

I dont mind the Nismo stickers either, your car can pull 'em off. Again, awesome car.. keep up the good work.

After closely examining the pictures I noticed how subtle and flowing that body kit is, the sides are awesome. The front lip looks especially cool also. Please let me know where this kit is available. Great work.

I'm a huge fan of original factory parts. All pieces are OEM ABS plastic aero parts. Side skirts and rear valences are from JDM Silvia aero version and front lip is 240sx SE lip that you can find on some 240s with chuki bumpers. But you won't see it on verts. I think Nissan didn't put it on cuz vert is slightly lower than others.

You can buy a lip here.http://www.courtesyparts.com/M...FRLIP

You can get silvia aeros from here, but check eBay often.http://www.pandagarage.com/s13a.html

I'm telling you. I was blown away when I installed them. They fit like gloves. No gaps and they line up perfect. I give a lot of credit to Nissan designers whoever come up with those aero pieces. They add a subtle accent to s13 body.
