    you could have fit it in there no problem without hacking much. Not to highjack your nice build thread or anything like that... Just sharing that I have been there. I mounted the stock radiator with a high pitch 2 row radiator and remounted the outlets and it has never overheated. I also used a Nissan Pulsar (310 with A series FF car) radiator fan and it works nice. You can trigger them with a thermostatswitch from a first gen Civic.



    Nice build and keep up the good work!

    Oh. I used a Truck one piece drive shaft and it was a bolt on... You can also use a RT72 or first gen MK2 rear axle and it is a bolt on. it is a little wider but still workable and you get the 6.7" diff which is a good advantage with LSD and rear end ratios.

    to lower the car i will be getting the rear leafs reset 2" and then also have a set of lowering blocks that I can put in to get it even lower for show days and when I want to be badass hahahah

    For the front ill probably get some springs made 2" lower to suit the rear leafs and then have a set of cut springs to go even lower for the show days ect.

    Eventually it will get air bags so I can lay frame hahaha but thats only on the wish list at present.

    Cheers Andy
