Thanks. Nice Mark II too :D
Typical me starting a new page.

Added 39 seconds later:

# Lagano : Last week we began swapping parts from the S14 Silvia to the 240SX and vice versa. First we took out the interior because Skip wanted to keep his S14 RHD, that means the 240 chassis needed some modifications before fitting on the RHD dashboard and steering rack. Now we could swap the LHD dash in the Silvia but we decided to keep it RHD as well cause it's a JDM car, after all. So we put the 240SX dash on sale and quickly got a deal, the buyer will install it in a S13. Before that we bought another JDM dashboard for the Silvia.


After the interior work was done we swapped the running gear and body parts. The Silvia still has the Navan bodykit cause Skip had another kit in mind for his S14. SR20 is also staying in it for now, so the Silvia is almost done! I only have to fit the headlights cause i cleaned them today, they were pretty faded.


Now on to Skip's 240: The most noticeable thing is the 326Power bodykit which we got from the UK a few days ago. Other than this it looks just like the Silvia when it arrived. We'll see about the engine though, maybe we'll swap in the SR20 but we also have some other ideas. ;)


That's it for now, both S14s will probably get resprayed in the future, well both of them are black but there is a slight difference.

Just gonna quote the last post.

Nice conversion! I didn't know that it is illegal to register a car although it technically is a same vehicle.

That would've been possible but more expensive then to do what we are doing now. We are just transferring the parts from the JDM car onto a USDM 240SX chassis and vice versa, then we are going to resell the JDM Silvia with the 240SX parts.
Hopefully this makes sense.

We tried to do that but the law was so strict that even the name stopped us registering it sadly.

"I don't need brakes, they just slow me down"

It's meeeeeeee
Back at it again with the 370z

Anyway


Today I had some free time so I decided to fit the Brembo brake kit I got with the car from Boostio.
The old brakes were junk, this was needed so badly and o h m y g o d does it feel better.

I started by removing the wheels blahblahblah you know how to do this.

picsit





Took it out for a rip once I was done, it feels way better than anything I've ever drove.




That's it for today probably, unless I crash or something idk
