well i stumbled across this forum a little while ago and figured id post some pictures of my cars up.

i absolutely love datsun Z's and owned a 78 a year and a half ago, but it was so far rotted out that i figured it was best to part ways with it.

but here is my first car, a 1990 240sx. Owned it almost 5 years and while i dont really like where the market has gone with them with kits and big wheels i cant seem to part with my first love.

I spent most of last winter having the rust repaired by one of our family friends and now it sits waiting a new heart transplant and more rust repair in the engine bay.

here she is in her glory days:

and heres after all my rust removal/ re undercoating....

Image


currently i am toying with rebuilding my l28e i have lying around from my Z i parted; i found a turbo parts car in the junkyard and pulled the head and manifolds.

hate if you want but as i said before, i love Zs, and finding one in the northeast on a student's budget is next to impossible. I'll get one eventually, but right now its just not likely.

Dumb question, Did those 180sx seats belts bolt right up?

Man, what an insult!..haha. I have a very deep hatred for knockoff wheels. My wheels are very rare 3 piece JDM wheel called Black Racing, manufactured by Arrow Enterprise.

But yea, that was me. Small world man. Glad to see you on JNC.

ooo im sorry yo... i didnt mean to insult! i couldnt remember but your stance/ car was killer

i also hate knockoffs as well; idk why i thought u had them, oo i misread yes the belts do bolt right up and are s13 specific.

one word of wisdom if u change out the A pillar to eliminate the gap that the automatic mechanism is, the headliner is different as well.... everything from the A,B and C pillar and up on mine are J spec pieces.

Wow...i didn't know i had to change all that. Can i just keep the same A pillar plastic? I'm really not worried about that gap.

no you dont have too....

most sets of belts i see from importers come with the b pillar panel at the very least.

you could always drill a hole in your stock panel and there you go!

also alot of my buddies run nissan pulsar nx belts pretty much bolt in, but i like the idea of using belts that were designed for my specific car.

Me too. My buddy Nick from EliteJDM has 3 containers from Japan coming this week. Hopefully he snagged some 180sx seat belts.

alright; so i am bumping my old thread to bring up some of the changes my s13 has gone through.

i havent worked much on it, but i ended up selling my s12 after a year and a half and loosing interest in it with problem after problem.


so my s13 went off to ge the rust repaired in the bay, and unfortunately one spot i thought was surface rust was actually through :( i guess that just means once i get the front end back together it will have to go back for one last spot, unless i find a good deal on a welder/ can borrow one in which case my buddy will just weld the last spot at my house


engine bay painted black to hide the rust repair, wiring slimmed a bit; i removed the AC components and some of the warning lamps/chimes the rest of the auto seatbelt thingys etc.

Image

i will do a mild tuck, but i will leave the fuse box visible probably mount it on the battery tray; and either go with a slim battery or move it to the back.

Image
Image


annd what i recently picked up.... overall the car is pretty clean, but im not sure i want to spend the time to fix the little rust it has, and replace all the rubber seals/interior.

so im beginning to think i found my engine for the s13.

You're thinking of putting that L series in? That'll be a first (insofar as I've seen).
