# Sleepin mOnkey :
CAUTION HUGE POST WITH LOT'S OF PICS

So you were awarded this post will be an travel to my past and a journey at the begining of My Jdm love.

So all this started when i was making 14 years and got myself going with my friend that was going to buy his first car at the time he has 16, we just found a guy on CL that had an British race miata and a yelow one.My friend Bought the green and the guy offerd us the both cars for 60% of the price each,at the first time i got myself a little receous with the car but aftheran test drive and me ending up without my Kart cross and Old notebook but with an old MX-5. I remember like was 5 minutes ago the expression of my mom watching me reving that old little yelow car at our house driveway and the Crazy stuff i done with my ex girlfriend and other girls that came afther on that little carismatic car.
Afther six weeks i was racing almost every week with that ride got my part of my money back and made great friends.also decided that the miata wanst getting any work that didnt came by my hands. One year afther i bought the car i got myself going sideways and starting at the drift life, but soon as i evolved on school and at my formation on general i got myslef without time to put at the miata so one day me and my friend made the decision of keeping the cars protected from the nature and go back to they when we had time and money,was at this time that i got the civic as my first street legal car and registred on my name also the moment that the ¨Twin Miatas¨ (our nickname)retired from the streets.

So me and my friend gone to the university and now we work at the car scene all because of those little mazda's. I graduated on mechanical engineer and he at marketing. I cant lie that the restoration idea came in part by the Phill on car throttle and #ThelittleMiataThatCould from Haggard gragage and so many other cars that we lived with at those years.And about a month we finaly decided to restore our cars.
Yesterday my friend came in to check how the project was beggining and to pay me but what i wasn't expecting that he came with the Double of the money and gave me to restore my car also as an antecipated Birthday gift.

I cant lie that we got ourselves excited about our both rides parked at the lot


















He's trying to wonder what i am gonna make with it.






Just removed the Blown 1.6 from my car





Now they are sitting like that ready for the sandblast.


Little bump

yeah the S13 entire took me about 3 days but i think with one guy helping me i can finish both by the saturday already done half on my friend's one and both alredy were grinded.

And i forgot to explain but the seam weld is a little more complex than the Stich wel beacuse the seam weld i am making requires grinding to create an path and torching to gave me better penetration also the seam weld are Complete lines not spaced bits

You maybe could get it done sooner! if just doing the chassis and no fenders or nothing.

that's basicaly the idea reinforce the chassis as he's the skeleton of the car and the body panels doesn't have any structural function on the ride.

So yes time for another reveal remember on the trip when i said that i've got another shell with the miatas, so yes the shell i bought was just to be an car that ill keep at my garage to clean my mind as an personal project the car was an normal s13 coupe but at some point a kid decided to convert it to Rhd so actutaly o got an RHD s13. And today as an birthday gift i got an such big surprise when arrived in my home all my friend were there with tons of parts just to give me the car as an gift and we are going to spent an great weekend building this thing.just for explanations i already have the engine suspension (bought from David) and wheels (CL). and what i got as gift was : K's stock front, Two recaro's ,VERTEX steering wheel, Wilwood Big Brake kit,Advan neova tyres and ton of little stuff.

# soju357 : Nice cars you got there :)

Thx mate

So what was going to be an weeend project ended up grabing me the whole week,but f*ck it was worth.Just to begin we decided to seam weld all the car what ended up that we almost shot down the entire street with 3 welders at the same time but with some help we finished the entire car in 14 hours. Then my friend offred me his Enkei 6666 by only 500 bucks and i couldn't refuse by that he only got some brick lights and a lip+roof spoiler with some carbon fiber that was laying arround. Now that he achieved his first stage i can get back to work

Sorry For the lack of updates that were manily caused by the fact that i got my phone stolen and didn't have time to buy an new one.But i am alreading setting my new one that arrived today (some phone test post should be up Very soon)

So Let's begin with what i was doing these weeks well pretty much building two miatas that used to be crappy and now look insane. By first my friend decided to make his miata like the classic stereotypical look but let me turn the engine into a surprise. As mine for now he's on the first stage and already looks good but i kinda will be upgrading it from time to time(btw it still missing some parts on the blue one).

These pics were took by my friend and i decided to post they without any edit because even like that they look sick (even f*cking my car paintjob)

But first my car was painted at the R34 bayside blue but the sun made the color look weird.






Tomorrow i'll discuss about the rides details and talk about economy

I agree with Terroras, the red looks really good and aggressive but I'm more of fastback style guy, so I'm going with blue one haha !

So I ended up on another Gigantic financial mistake.well if you are read My RP from the begining you will remember that S30 Z that i restored it just happenned that his owner bought one old farm on a auction(Here came the funny part) and inside an old barn he founded this porsche under tons of dust and a rust the first think that came to his mind was to scrap that old rusted car but before that he called me and asked if i want it on that condition.well the car is just awfoul but the time i saw he those little eyes isntantly adquired their piece in my heart. As on economy i got an buddy price because the happyness that the zetto brought to his life and the fact that that Z make us friends so i got this Jewel for only 4k and a free check up on the zetto.





Also the R34 is complete because this week the shop went at his mynimal ativity and the project that was caming actualy will arrive only next weekand i was full of clean time and ended up sleeping less and working more.But no pics for now. Also what you guys think about the little porsche?

And he Found three carrera engine that are in good condition he just will ask for his mechanical to check what one is best and then is just the money and shipping so i can give the porsche a new heart
