Guess ill join in on the fun, this be my project car. I just registered to the site on 9-18-13. Sometimes i feel like im in over my head because of the rust on this thing, but i know i have to just take my time on it and ill do just fine. I have built s13's before so this is nothing new to me. The car was originally titled in New Jersey, its made a hell of a trip down here a few years ago and has not recieved the love it deserves. When i got it it had blown rear suspension, very minor amount of interior. Work has been real slow for me so i havent been able to get more parts for it to get it finished. Since i have got it i replaced the suspension all around with RS-R springs and KYB struts. Replaced the OEM doors with normal power doors. I replaced the doors cause i figured it will be easier to go this route then find good vert door panels and complete seat belt setups for it. Only interior the car came with was the pillar plastics and rear seat (top and bottom), and a realll bad dash. rest is missing. I plan on doing 5 lug conversion when i get the money and when i finish all body work i will paint it flat black with my air gun. And i think it is safe to say i need to get the top replaced cause it does have some ripping and the back window is nasty and tearing apart.
the person i got the car from had decided on painting the front end purple like that and i kinda like it so ill leave it probably
So time for a few pictures to show before and after and so forth...
taking her home
interior needs TLC
few days later before i did anything
the rear lights have been sprayed by someone to make them look completely red, which i dont like
...so i took acetone to them and woala
the rear suspension
now this is funny, guess someone decided to use lugnuts instead of the nuts on the suspension and they work for now till i get the nuts
that properly go there and then ill replace.
much better height now
door swap in progress
the 350z 18 inch rims i will be using after 5 lug conversion is done
the rear window...car been sitting a few years i believe
still need door panels for the reg doors i put on and alot of interior
the worst rust on the vehicle, i will be removing the bumper and fixing all of that soon, then i will do full paint job
rattle can flat black to kinda make it one color for now and i got me a hood finally
still havent decided if im gonna use the sharknose or pignose bumper, i have both so ill decide eventually...
and this is current look of it :-/
And there ya have it, these are just some of the pictures of my work i have done so far to the car in the past few months. Work has been real slow for me so i dont have the extra cash to really get this done like i want to, i will update this thread with more as i continue my restoration. My end plan is going with a 1UZ-FE and 5 spd setup.
