Hey hey hey, so my name is Tom i live in the US. I have been saving up for some time to build a "race car", after i sold my coupe i started searching for a new project car. This is my 3dr hatch, i have also had 2 coupes, so i'm quite farmiliar with the s-chassis.



This is a 1991 240sx with 152787km's on it, it's just a shell soo it has no engine.







It's a really clean shell, NO rust underneath, the enginebay is a little oily tho, but the interior is in immaculate condition. One door is green, front bumper's from a single cam car, but judging from the interior the car has been a dualcam. At first the car was preety ratty, but after i washed the car it looks really cleeeeaaaannnn :D.

Right now i'm taking the bus to work, sooo if you have a cheap car around 1k offer it please, coz taking the bus SUCKS.

MY PLANS WITH THE CAR:


*Find an engine, probably an sr20 (if your selling one, then slip intho the dm's)
*Suspension
*brakes
*HOTBOII wheels
*Bodykit??
*AH HUGE WANG
*Definitely a paintjob
and some other stuff here and there

I want to keep the car as a clean street\drift car

Today is new car day! whell atleast new for me.. Yesterday i was browsing on craigslist and i found this gem, a 1995 mazda miata. I bought it for 3'200V$, the interior and exterior is in miiintt condition, it has minimal rust and from what i can see it isn't leaking anything. The car has 110'000 miles on it and since its a '95 it has the 1.8 engine.









I's completely bone stock and it rips :))

My plans with the car:


*wheels
*coils
*exhaust
*steering wheel

This car is going to be a stanced, driftable daily

We bought two Miatas in our RP too. Could of bought one of us, but anyway, it looks good.

By the end, do you want it to look like the first Miata we have? (Look at the earlier RP pages, you'll see it, it's green).

I'm planing to keep it this grey colour, and when i get new wheels i'm gonna get them powder coated a turquoise colour. Atleast thats the plan for now.

Yesterday i bought an engine, and suprize suprize it's an sr20 :)) . I got it locally and its a whole swap, it supposedly has 50k miles on it.


Yesterday i mocked it up in they bay, and decited to paint the bay, after taking the engine out i started sanding, smoothing it down and primering it, also masked the windshield and covered up the wheels.






(my photoshop skills are shitty)


Today i bought paint and painted it orange .


After painting it i let the paint dry and put the engine back in, after that i put the front end together.


Tomorow im gonna install the engine harness and connect the lines, then take it for a the first rippppp :D

As said, yesterday i conected lines and harness up to the engine, i filled the tank up with fresh gas, I was hoping that its gonna fire right up. whell.. it didn't, at first it didn't crank over, soo i bought i new battery.



It still didn't fire up so after some troubleshooting i noticed that fuel wasn't going to the engine. I inspected the lines and in one place the line was kinked, after replacing that piece of line and using starter fluid the car fiered up. Today i test drove the car and it went well, the car was running great and there were no broblems.




Right now i'm looking intho painting the s13, im tinking a dark blue or gray colour, what do you guys think colour wise would look good?

Hi peeps! Ereyesterday came in two packages, one contains coiloers for the 240sx, second ones from saletl. The coils are innovative series, i got them online. And from saletl i bought a front bumper, sideskirts and wheels with tires.


Coils :

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW




*Front bumper - BN sports ( small crack on the right side )
*Sideskirts - 326 power ( pain's faided )
*Wheels - BBS LM's in 17x10, with michelin tires ( tires got some life left )





(THANKS SALETL)

The panels are a midnight purple colour, but they're slightly darker than the car soo i'm going to have to repaint them. The wheels are black with red accents, i plan to sand them down and clear coat them, for a polished look.




Tomorow i'm janking out the engine, chopping off the front end and welding up a custom dashbar.

So as i said, monday after work i took apart the 240's front end to tube it. All went well and i didn't snap any bolts.





First i took the front end apart,then cut the rad support off with an angle grinder.






Then i pulled the engine and cut out the wheel wells.






wednesday




Wednesday i went to lowes and bought some tubing for the front end, And started bending and welding the front end together, its a super simple design :D . After it was welded i prepeared the bay for paint and primered it.








Today a dude came over and airbrushed the engine bay and the valve cover a floral pattern. After that i painted the firewall black.








When that was all done i dropped the engine back in, but didn't put the intake, wires, lines and front end togethwr because today i had other stuff to do.
