Hi :D
I'm new here, i'm Antonio an 18yo man and i live in Puglia(an Italian region), and i'm still searching for a car to build, but i will be making one soon
I already made a message to Garage Nine for a cool import
If anybody wants to sell me a car tho PM me

UPDATE
So i've bought my very first car (Credits to Lagano for selling it to me) :D
It's a Nissan Silvia S14 which apparently was F22 swapped(dunno why...).
The car will be brought to my garage pretty soon.
the car costed me 14000V$, so i have 6000V$ left for more mods :D
I will upload some pics as soon as the car arrives here :)

YAY, the Silvia finally arrived at the garage :D
it looks really good but it had some awful decals that I removed right after it came at the garage.
Here are some pics of her :)



So yeah...here's my first car :)
i'm going to do a lot of stuff on it:
-first of all i'm gonna swap the engine cause I don't like the idea of a F22 in a Silvia.I'll probably get a SR20 or a VQ...we'll see :)
-swapping rims probably with some volks
-stripping the interior and getting a rollcage cause RACECAR BRO! :D
I'm getting to work soon ;) update in some hours.

What do you mean, awful decals?! :P Well, i put them on because it matched the colour of the engine and seats. Now that you will swap the engine you won't really need it. You could change the seats as well, because yellow seats look kinda random now. :D Good luck with it, and be sure to make it faster with a new engine!

Sorry man :P the prob was that i started the RP too fast and i had to say something about the decals in order to get pics without them...

Not really, 14k is more or less the price for a fully tuned s14, your was even using an honda motor so i'd say it isnt worth more than 4.5k tbh :D.

You could have simply bought one here for 6.8k( *LINK* ). :P

Oh well, have fun with it anyways! :D

The Silvia is pretty much a shell now, but it's gonna be a hell of a drift car pretty soon :P
if anyone is intrested on the rims you will find em on the used market :)

Gotta make some money :P

Yeah, maybe it was a bit too much but it's in mint condition. And that F22 has a lot of upgrades too. There aren't so many upgrades in game, i think it should have more than 300hp, and you'll make some money by selling it so you were not ripped off completely. :))

It will be great for a drift car, it's almost done already, the front suspension arms have a lot of steering angle. And the coilovers and brakes are alright too. ;) (and i see your pictures are getting better, good job)

UPDATE

Another day, another adventure :)
I've finally sold the honda engine for 3k
and the rims for 500 bucks.
Give a good salute to this fantastic motor, I'm really curious to see how Jdm_racer is going to use it :)


Added 16 minutes later:

ANOTHER UPDATE

Surfing down the web i've also found the rims :)
the problem thos is that my tyres won't fit on them so i will have to buy new ones...
they look good and they're also genuine JDM. They will get here at the garage with the same ship of the engine :)
P.S. #Ebay4Lyfe :))

UPDATE

Hey guys, i thought that having only 1 car is pretty boring so i searched through the web and i found this
LINK
It's a Fiat 128 with a lot of rust...i'd like to build a sleeper with it.I've called the seller and i've told him I don't want the engine and i managed to to remove 100 bucks from the price.
So i borrowed a '94 civic vti from a friend of mine and i went to Pistoia to buy the car

UPDATE

So I got to the garage where they're selling the 128 and it looks like this:



Yeah i know it's a rust bucket, has no engine and has blown rear suspensions but i've decided to buy it anyway :)
I honestly don't know what's gonna come out of this, but i hope it's something good.

Added 2 minutes later:

P.S. I checked the mail and one of it from my ebay account said my package with the VQ and rims is coming so I will be getting it as soon as possible

UPDATE

So this night I got the package at the docks with my rims and the engine for the Silvia.
I got back home and I've decided to start building at 3:00AM :P
So yeah my Silvia project is "partially" completed but not 100%, here are a few pics:


Here is the VQ coming straight out of a JDM Fairlady Z33:



Getting it into the bay :)



Through the job i've noticed that how good is the S-chassis at swapping engine. Looks like it was made for it :)



And putting back the front end...




So yeah...the swap is complete :)
I'm really tired but I'm happy to get ahead on the Silvia project. Further updates soon :D


P.S. The 128 also arrived at the garage this night. We'll see what to do with it later :)

UPDATE

I'm beginning to work on the 128 and i've already bought the anti-rust molding, stripped everything from the chassis and prepared my sandblaster to remove the paint.
After 2 hours of work this is how it looks like:

So yeah in a few hours my 128 will be rust free :D
I've also bought a rollcage, 2 OMP bucket seats and a drift steering wheel for the Silvia.
this means that the car will be 80% complete tomorrow :)

Was it just surface rust or there are hokes somewhere? It looks pretty good tho.

Also, i'm wondering what color did you choose, i'd like to suggest a nice Giallo Positano[208], i think it fits really well.. but your car your choice :P

So i've been searching for a VQ35 Turbo kit and i've realized that they're all pretty much 5k+.
So yeah I'm too broke for that. Altough I got out the city for a quick illegal hoon >:) since my Silvia is still not registered.
And right now it's so good at drifting :O with only 300HP (I think).

BURNING TYRES

:D
(not too much tho cause i'm broke and i can't get new ones...)

This afternoon I also worked on my 128. Here is it after 4 hours of rust removal operations :DD



It's been difficult cause there were a lot of holes, right betweed the body panels, but I did it :)
I hope this car has potential to become a sleeper...

# Lagano : If you paint it yellow, the seats from the Silvia will look great on it! :)
Mmmh...I was thinking about selling them but I think this is a better idea. Though as I said to BigBoss there's a lot of stuff to do before that :/

So my interior stuff for the Silvia is now installed and ready :)
It really looks like a full-spec drift car now.
Here are some pics of the process :)







I'm also searching for a engine to install on the 128.
As soon as I bought it I wanted to buy a cheap Honda K series like a accord K24 and then getting a turbo kit.
Well if I find something I will get you updated :D

UPDATE

Since I can't buy a turbo kit for the Silvia, I'm spending my last money for some Wiseco high compression piston kit to install on the VQ.
This pistons will give me a 11:1 comp ratio, so you are not able to install a turbo with those pistons, but they should give me some horses anyway.
Well...I'm now officially broke :(
P.S. After this mod I will dyno the Silvia :)

UPDATE

Yesterday I installed the high compression piston kit on my Silvia and my paycheck arrived :)
It took a lot of time since i had to strip everything from the engine to get to the pistons. Here are a few pics:



When I finally got everything back on the car I went to dyno test it...and here's the sheet:

It's always nice to have a linear NA powerband, tho a turbo kit would have been nicer :(
I also think I will probably sell the Silvia cause it costed way too much initally and I'm broke, so I'm trying to get the max from it so I can begin a "reasonable" build...

UPDATE

I've bought a new car. I spotted an announce on which the owner was giving away a BMW 316i E36 for free so I went there and i've decided to get it.
It's in pretty nice conditions tho and the owner was nice with me so i gave him 50V$ anyway for the car :)
Here is it in the garage:



It's just missing the front badge and the front mask. The engine runs but it's really underpowered. It's a 1.6L single cam with only a bit more than a 100hp so it's going straight out of the bay. The start of another project lel

So I got the engine out of the 316i and sold it on ebay for 350V$.(And I've also managed to make some license plates on photoshop :) )

UPDATE

So I had some "technical" problems about my SLRR game fucking up my profile so I've decided to sell everything apart from the beemer and start building it for real :) .
So i now have 17k at my disposal, so this means I will be able to throw loads of mods on my E36 and to do so I made a shopping list which I will update every time I buy something new :awesome:
-Coilovers & brakes (Teing Coils bought for 1200V$ and brembo GT kit for 1800V$)
-Engine (Found a S54 with 95k miles for 4900V$)
-Rims & Tyres (18" work emotion found for 900V$ also with Michelin Pilot R18 255/35 for 600V$)
-Interior stuff (using my OMP seats that I had on the Silvia)
I will keep you updated soon :)
P.S Tomorrow I start school :( so expect many less posts then usual...
