Thanks man i'm trying my best & will keep on trying to deliver the details

I would sell all my cars to get my '91 S13 coupe back!


I originally wanted a coupe soooooo bad but that "drift tax" killed a bunch of deals, maybe in the future i'll purchase one if R32 GTR's don't get cheaper here

Getting closer to getting this thing back to driving status

Chase bays coolant over flow tank


Gktech S14 rear arm inserts


S13 Reman steering rack, & installed tein inner tie rods w/ Gktech outers & energy suspension bushings. i'll probably upgrade to PBM's eccentric bushings in the future... have to look up the benefits


Some more oem goodness F&R axle nuts (if you're in the long island area & need oem parts hit up @SR20NYC this guy delivers all the time)


Coolant overflow tank mounted, just need to get some hose


S14 inserts fitted & no more gap !


Calipers painted (keeping it stealthy so I don't attract any unwanted attention....)


Front suspension just about done, just waiting on my friend to bring my Voodoo13 front tension rods since I left it in his car


I might as well call this a resto project, I love the sight of seeing this being refreshed


Definitely want to get some new front subframe bolts that's for sure


Test fitting my boys z32 wheels to get an idea of what an 9.5 wheel would be like & it's not bad at all then again i don't remember the offset & it's still a 235 tire just like my fn10r-c


Getting rid of the EVAP & EGR nonsense


Brake lines installed, Since these are Evo lines & s13 coilovers the mounting brackets don't match, maybe I mock something up. & so far we ran into a banjo bolt slight leak, we tightened it up & it seem to stop but also felt like we were stripping it so we have to look into that. If they are any evo owners with stoptech stainless lines let me know if guys had the same problem


Enthuspec clutch line & new slave cylinder installed


ISR Steering column solid bushing installed


Will be putting a nismo logo on these, hopefully that doesnt attract thieves, if i get any unwanted attention the stickers will be coming right off !


Overnight parts from Japan



Japanese comics get me


Someone translate what this is please. I feel like it's some type of certification of authenticity


Power brace Arigatooooooooo




& that's about it for now. We soaked the rear subframe with PB blaster, were on schedule to hopefully have it removed this Labor day. Other than that's besides replacing bolts, undercoating the rear & most likely getting new rear axles, not so much left to do, My goal is at least ONE autocross session but I've head MAJOR bad luck with track deadlines so at this rate I just want to drive it before the weather gets shitty

Did a thing or two..
Decided to get a practice run on my dummy chuki bumper, Not the greatest of jobs but at least it doesn't have a huge dent but some scratches.


I definitely have to invest in a orbital sander, will do that when I tackled my driver door refresh

Primered


Couple coats of paint & clear, we'll see how it goes when its dried up.




For $50 I couldn't pass up a hot tanked s13 sr20det block Looks like either a cd009 or 20v head would be the next major purchase









Going to spray it with wd40 & saran wrap it for winter storage so no rust builds up. If anyone knows any other good block storage techniques let me know

Out with the old
Rear subframe coming out





Power brace installed also just painted the sway bars & added energy suspension bushings, not totally sure if i'm going to upgrade into an adjustable one or run without we'll see



My friend added some of his touch & I can't lie the logo idea actually looks pretty good


Till next time...

In with the new
S14 subframe in w/ rebuilt axles, also i'm not sure if you guys can see, but we undercoated most of the rear. Found forming rust in the wheel arches but nothing structural so that's good news








She's coming along
