Should get paint next year. Promised myself I wouldn't paint it until my 1200 is done. :P

They aren't too tough to get, but can be spendy. This grill came on B210s in Japan, Australia, and Europe. JDM got the "S" badge (like mine) everybody else got a "D" there.

Finding the bumpers is the tough part. And the JDM bumper brackets won't fit the USDM cars very well (if at all). I had to make my own. Wasn't too tough, though.

Quote:

I bought it off ebay about 6-7 years ago. Had it on my 610 forever (what I bought it for), but since it was just collecting dust I decided to slap it onto this car. It's actually for a B210, but also fits the 610 perfectly.

Rear has 2" lowering blocks and "helper" springs (added for stiffness). Will probably add a sway bar and stiffer/shorter shocks soon.

Front is '82 280ZX struts/brakes (much bigger brakes than stock, and helps the wheels fit better), B210 springs with 3 coils removed (3.5" drop), and KYB struts.

I couldnt find one... You remember what search terms did use or any other ones that would fit a b210

After i washed it ! 8)

So far:
registered
Only 57$ and that is it no smog no nothing, i love it! So painless
Personal Plates
I ordered some personal plates while i was there: 74 JNC
is what they will say ! :P
Stickers
Place order for some JNC stickers to represent!!
Fluids
Changed my engine, transmission, and differential oils
100 bucks

Next in line is to order a trunk i found on ebay and replace the driver side glass. The one it has isnt from a B210 so it doesnt fit right, can i just take it to an auto glass shop or something and get it replaced or do i have to find an original B210 glass ?

Really? There was a few 120Y's with that exact grille sitting in a pile next to the crusher last time I was at the wreckers, should have grabbed them and made myself some money 8) :P

On topic, looks pretty tidy. And it's a proper coupe, unlike every other B210 two-door I've ever seen. They've all been hatches :P
Keep us updated, keen to see where this goes 8)
