My thoughts exactly!

The BP-ZE isn't staying.

I have some big plans for this car engine-wise. As for the silver Miata and the Porsche, they are staying exactly as they are for now. I don't want to sell them, nor do I wan't to change anything about them. But as for my little red oil-burning buddy here, it's getting a much needed engine swap among other performance modifications.

Da.

I just noticed my right mirror doesn't match the rest of the car.


But that won't be a problem after today... I'm pretty confident in my painting skills now, so I borrowed a booth from my friend. You should see the results soon. I also picked up a stock rear bumper and some fender flares for the rear. It gives it a nicer look in my opinion. The diffuser was cool and all but I think this looks better. Less over the top.


$1106 - $100 (Stock rear bumper) - $180 (Rear fender flares) = $726

:^)

Okay, the Miata is currently being painted but I wanted to post about this. I sold the Mickey Thompsons which were 5 lug wheels. I don't want to run adapters again, so I picked up a set of Centra Turbos (Odd choice but they look neat). Also coming in the mail shortly is a set of TEIN Street Advance Zs, because I'm not going to keep running cut springs. No pictures for now since nothing happened, but the Miata's paintwork is coming along quite nicely. Maybe I'll post a preview later...


$726 + $650 (Sale of Mickey Thompsons) - $470 (Centra Turbos) - $500 (TEIN Street Advance Z) = $406

((OOC: #ChangingMyEnbAllTheTimeBecauseICan'tPickOneAndStickWithIt))

amazon prime sponsor my build

The rear fenders, rear bumper, roof, and mirrors have been painted! I gotta hand it to the claimed "overnight shipping", my Street Advance Zs were ordered sometime on Friday and arrived within two days. The coilovers didn't change the aesthetics of the car that much but the ride quality, while still bad since the car is so low, is miles better than the cut springs. As for the wheels, a set of Centra Turbos which really add to the Miata's overall style. I'm not sure why I went with a set of wheels that are most often used on Volkswagens. Hell, at first I didn't really like how they looked but they grew on me so I decided to buy them.


I'm at a loss now, though. I don't know what to do with the car. I might just ease off on the spending for a bit so I can save up enough money to start working on the red Miata, which is currently sitting on jackstands in the corner.

Nobody.

So uh, Nick sent me an Amazon link for a pair of large googly eyes along with about seventeen winky face emojis. I think I know what he wants me to do...

I took a little vacation, but I'm back now.

I need suggestions on what to do next. Oh, I didn't end up ordering those googly eyes that Nick directed me to, it slipped my mind until now...


$406 = $750 (Paycheque) = $1156

I sold some stuff... The red Miata was honestly going nowhere and I didn't want it to sit around like the R32 did. I also sold the BP-ZE. Expect something cool either later tonight, or tomorrow.


$1156 + $800 (Sale of red Miata to Phonexius) + $500 (Sale of BP-ZE to Sleepin mOnkey) = $2456

Sure!

Uh, I've been eyeing something for a while and I pulled the trigger on it today, as I finally came across some more money. So, RIP the red Miata project but hey, this is cooler.

To welcome my new car, I have a statement to make...

"Dear whoever did this, please proceed to promptly end your life."




This is a 1995 Nissan Silvia Q's, and it's horrible. It has around 101,000 miles. I bought it from a sketchy used car dealership that clearly didn't know what they had on their hands. While it was a good deal considering what this car once was and unfortunately now isn't, I have some questions for whoever committed the crime of destroying this poor Nissan... (Now, I'm not an S14 expert so excuse me if something I say is wrong.)

-Where is the Navan kit?
-Why is the rear bumper 95% bondo and 5% paint that isn't OEM Pearl White? (The lighting doesn't do that point justice.)
-Is that supposed to be a redtop? The VIN doesn't specify and my online research is failing me.
-Why the hell does it say "Intercooler Turbo" on the spark plug wire cover?
-If the headcover isn't original, we're you too lazy to pop the insert out?
-I take it this isn't the first time you've blown a tranny, huh? Thanks for that, I had to rent a truck and a dolly.
-Two MB Battles, cool. Did you curb the other two?
-Did you pull a Vehicle Virgins and break the hood latch?
-I have many more questions and comments, but I think this one can summarise the car; WHAT THE FUCK!?

Eyyy whaddya know, I'm broke again. This car was cheap I guess, but factoring in it's problems, it was a fair price. I'm going to take it slow, and do it right. This car deserved to be reverted to what it was, or at least un-ruined.


$2456 - $2200 (Decrepit 1995 Nissan Silvia Q's) = $256

Exactly!

Thanks man, I'm going to need a lot of luck to right all these wrongs.

I got the S14 home last night and stuffed it in between the Porsche and the Miata.



This afternoon, I removed the hood and popped the spark plug wire cover off, because the lettering on it described a DET, not a DE. So now I'm going to work on either repairing or replacing the hood latch. Though an alternative route I can take is switching to racing hood locks.

We'll see...

Fake Greddys >:C

I bent the latch back to where it should be, but I don't trust its integrity anymore. So, hood locks it is!

Losing? Pffft...

Hey, that's pretty good!

I installed the hood locks, so, now my hood will stay very shut. I'm going to put the car up on the lift and pull the transmission out to see how bad it is, because I'm not able to drive the car yet. I've witnessed it running, but I haven't witnessed it moving...



$256 - $50 (Hood locks) = $206
