Nice man, what colour are you thinking?
How come SR? They're pretty expensive for what theu are and that's here in straya where you find them everywhere.

Fitting up my drivers side side skirt last night. Sits better than the pic related because I couldn't hold it up. Just needs holes drilled and this ones ready to be sanded back and painted.
Anyone have any tips to get rid of sikaflex? Used a caramel wheel to get the double sided tape off but it doesn't work very well on sikaflex.

Originally 1jz but 2jz is actually starting to look cheaper with the bonus of parts availability. Just need to find a good GTE engine for sale.

Also for my fan shroud i have the bottom cut in half with 2 holes drilled to run a zip tie thru to make it easier cut & take off, then put back on & zip tie back together, kek
>>
>>14178349
I thought the whole point of Sikaflex was that it doesn't come off.
Have you tried metho and a razor blade?
>>
>>14178373
Caramel wheel is just a kind of clay type thing you use as a drill attachment. Removes shit from your pain without scratching it.
Sikaflex is just like a silicon crossed with glue.

>>14179753
Have gotten some of it off with a blade then taken back the rest with the caramel wheel.

Hey Gents! KA-T Zenki anon checking in.

Haven't done much to the car, it sleeps mostly during this winter.

Scored some almost brand new Nismo Juke RS Recaros for a steal of a deal, gonna figure out a way to make them work in the S14. Pic related.

The headlamps are also out getting the projector retrofit + HID treatment. Super stoked about those as well.

Hopefully someone can help me out with this. I have an S13 and been trying to find a part number. In pic related, Nissan refers to it as the front bumper extension. However, there's a bar that stabilizes that extension to the bumper so it doesn't flop and stick out. Mine has rusted out and I'd like to replace it. Any ideas?

I've had someone offer to trade an '89 S12 notch back (CA20, stick) for my' 95 F150 2WD longbed automatic.

What should I know about the S12 to tell if it's worth it or not?

>base model with no wing
:^)
>>
>>14181582
chances are its going to be real difficult to make them fit, if they do at all. theyre real tall and would give an awkward seating position in the 240.
on the other hand, they go for 4k new from the dealer, so im sure you could get a decent payout if you dont keep them
>>
>>14185885
Do you think that if I, lets say, somehow wrapped or coated that piece of foam shit and made it waterproof, would it rust then?
>>
>>14186086
I'm not sure. You could do what whiskey did and find a hatch and swap it.
>>
>>14186098
Nah i'm looking for ways to retain the spoiler, im kinda growing fond of it.
>>
>>14185878

Front fenders are shot but it looks like the rest is good. Seller says it runs good
>>
>>14186562
Front fender rust normally means there is more rust under the wheel arches and on the body.

What are you on about? Im saying to create such a switch, and flip it when you leave the car. that way it wont be fed fuel and no one will be able to start it.. without hitting the hidden switch

Would have been like $600, but it was ordered last year & they had a stock problem where they ran out & didnt tell me for a month after taking money, just now got the shipping confirmation that its on the way from Japan with free shipping & a discount. so now i have a unopened type x bumper for only $200

Not gonna lie I offered the soon to be owners of said Nismo Juke RS $500 for them both and they graciously accepted. I couldn't believe it.

>>14185938
Yeah I'm hoping they go in easily and it all works out I really really like them. I'm gonna try to find the lowest bottom mount seat bracket that accepts this seat and kinda go from there. If they don't work out I'll sell them and fund some Brides or something.

I bet. However, I refuse to modify this car in any way. Feels immoral.

>>14187604
FRS sport sell them I think in plastic. Or for got tier fibreglass fitment go JSAI, they make some pretty high quality fibreglass shit. Obviously not as good as plastic but those that frs sport sell aren't genuine as genuine type x bars aren't made of polyurethane.

why lol. Only reason mine is still stock is because I'm dailying it right now and I can't afford to not have a car if anything goes wrong.

>>14186680

only made for two years, plus rice tax/drift tax. Get a zenki and swap the front end

why do you care if your deck looks oem? It's just the stereo bro. Also with an aftermarket one you get a nice spot to put your sunglasses

>why lol. Only reason mine is still stock is because I'm dailying it right now and I can't afford to not have a car if anything goes wrong.

You can always invest in coils, swaybars and an lsd. All good mods that wont make the car any less reliable. Plus if you have a nice stock sr20 the power is perfectly enough. Hell even the KA is good.

I dont understand why everyone gotta butcher up their car and make it a unreliable pos.
>>
>>14190319

Yeah thats my plan, short of the engine swap (I do want to switch to an SR eventually, but I don't have the money, tools, garage, or experienced friends to help me with that right now).

Coilovers will come once I save enough money for some decent ones. Tried to buy some used Teins this week but the guy sold them to someone else.

just realized my shitbox has been in an unreported rear end collision and water leaks into the boot and rear end lights

So is it true that you can't legally SR20 swap these in California? I see a bunch of them on craiglist but whenever I look it up on forums and shit they say it's impossible to pass smog.
>>
>>14193043
You can't legally swap them in the USA at all technically because they aren't dot approved or some shit like that?
But yeah it's not legal in california so you would have to find a shady smog shop to 'pass' you.
>>
>>14193043
i also wonder this
from what i understand in this shit hole is that it has to be the same year or newer. and have all related bits.

if i were to do a swap it would be the ka24de-t for less headache

or the obligatory lsx

>>14193082

>>14192945
I have a similar question. For whatever reason, I see condensation collecting inside my rear windshield and the quarter glass. I see drops of water, but when I hose down my car, I see no water leaking in.
>>
>>14193178
same here

halp
>>
>>14192945
most hatches leak, i've replaced the trim on mine twice & it works for awhile, but not forever.

and to look for signs if your body is no longer straight, check the wheel wells & pinch welds of your unibody for crumples & wavy bends like pic related.
also if it was really hard of an impact, check your frame rails for buckling.

my 240 was in a front end collision, but got lucky with the crumple zone taking the impact & leaving no damage past the shock tower.
only problem is my driverside headlight is pushed back slightly, and that could be fixed if i just get a bolt to attach it to the mount that just dangles there
>>

This is a great post. Thanks, will look at my car later.

its a coupe bro
and thanks for the tip

the rubber trim seals up perfectly but where the plastic light fixtures meets the body theirs a good 5mm+ gaps on the corners so when it rains in runs off and down into the lights wetting and corroding the light bulbs and shit

also the rear passenger side seem a little more pushed in or closer to the wheel

welp, thanks a lot

unless eu spec had something different (which i doubt) i can safely say that my car has been hit in the rear in its past. now i really dont know why one area in my trunk (the side towards the rear lights) is weird... wrinkled in one line/crumpled i cant even find the right word. doesnt help that its rusted. god i hate the snow, wanna go out and check the trunk now and take pics, but too much snow. if it was spring i'd take the bumper off

yep. my rear lights also got condensation. the car was sitting for a long time tho, so its also possible that all the rubber bits went to shit.

anyways in terms of handling, the car goes straight, feels solid and nothing rattles at all..

I doubt a smog shop would be able to tell that its not the right engine, as long as you have all the correct emissions stuff on it (cat). I'm not soeaking from experience though. And it probably depends on the smog shop

I run a nistune ecu. Most import shops where I live will tune them because the dude who designed it lives in my city.. Not worth the extra expense of buying the tuning software without a dyno really. You can get them installed and tuned here for under $1k, definately a good option. Allow you to keep all your factory features, can run e85 and fuel flex sensors if you want, pretty sure in the new software they have anti lag settings etc. Well worth the money you pay for them desu. Just do your research on tuners, I've had a few bad experiences from different places and finally found someone who put the time and effort in to get everything perfect.
