Draggin A$$'s Build

Here is what I started with, its a 1995 240sx. I bought this because the price was right.

This is what I know its came with:
Hydro E-brake plumbed but not mounted
5 Lug
Stock 16" rims
17" MB Weapons rims
Buddy Club Bucket
Function Form Type 2 coil overs
solid subframe bushings
SPL solid diff bushings
off brand tc rods


Here are some pics of what I'll be working with















Hydro E-Brake




Here is the list of what I will brought back with me from Japan

S14 SR20DET
5 Speed mission
R33 GT-R Fuel pump
1.5 way LDS
KTS coilovers
KTS 32mm Sway bar
8 Point cage
Uras Type II body kit
Bride Seat
Custom Shifter
SMIC & FMIC
Full interior(minus the dash)
D Max Crystal Corner light
D Max Crystal Blinker lights
D Max Kouki Fenders
D Max Rear Overfenders
Kouki trunk with Kouki wing
Kouki Tail lights
Kouki Head lights
Full 3" exhaust from the turbo back to an HKS Dragger muffler
R33 GT-R wheels
Z33 Fairlady Z wheels
Z32 Brakes
And some other odds and ends here and there

Here it is in Texas getting cleaned up and getting the lights put in for inspection(which it failed). I also put my Bride in, wheels with good tires and raised it about 3 inches(for shipping).







Here she is in the garage for the first time in it new home in Idaho.



All alone....



Oh wait there's a friend



So, after having her a few days I had some free time to de-fagaize the car. I removed all the retarded stickers and tint. Also put all the MB's on.









Well I got tired of the the whole push button start S@#$ that the old owner put in to bypass the anti-theft system so I rewired it and cleaned up the relay box and battery.




While I was at the rewire I took out the POS radio that didn't work and fixed the HVAC controls so they weren't falling in the dash anymore.




And since I had the dash torn apart I hid the hydro E-brake for now until I can get the rear brakes fixed to be able to think about using it.




While waiting on my stuff to get here I got bored and lowered the car. I maxed out the front coils and lowered the rear to match. Well the only problem I ran into was I got high centered trying to get out of the driveway. Well here are some pics of it.




I also picked up a few things the other day for the car. I have some wiring issues and I have a seized caliper. So i got some brake parts and a few tune up parts that are well needed. Here are some more pics.

Parts


Lights and washer pump wires

I finally got my stuff. So, while I was cleaning out the garage to make room for the car and the wife's van I threw some stuff on the car just for sh*ts and giggles.

Kouki Wing




I test fitted the D-Max rear overs









And I can't be without my baby's!! So, I had to put the GT-R's on





Brakes went on

Old with the New


On



I also rebuilt the rear calipers, replaced the disks and pads while I was at it.

So I spent about 4 hours this evening finishing up the brakes and hit on a few other things.

Put on the KTS coilovers



KTS swaybar



Front and rear strut bars




Test pipe


HKS exhaust



Oh look at all that space, wander why its there.....


Cage is in, well mostly anyway.




Did a little metal flexing trying to fix the lasts owners awesome fender pulling job.





Here it is with the over fender on.









The specs are 17x9 +17 with a 225/45 and a 50mm spacer.

Got bored tonight so I put the URAS rear bumper on, but didnt stop there. I also threw on the over fender and side skirt.







Here is how the over sits on the tires right now. I have enough pull on the fender to clear the tire but the over doesnt.

So, I've had a few issues with the car. One is I did a coolant flush to get it ready for the cold since the car is from Texas and since I did it the car gets way too hot. It doesn't over heat it just get almost there. Two is the battery decided it didn't like being whole so it blew a hole in the bottom of it.

Since I can't drive the car I went to put my LSD in and while doing it one of welded in nuts on the front of the sub frame snapped off so the bolt would just spin. So I pulled out the sawsall and cut the bolt head off and got the diff out. So my plan is to cut a hole in the sub frame weld a new nut in there and then re-weld up the hole but that plan came to a stop when I realize I didn't have any cutoff wheels so that didn't get done today.

Well since I cant drive at all and it might be awhile before I can I stripped the front off(lights, fenders, hood, bumper). Once I was done with the stripping I decided to do some test fitting of some more D-Max stuff.








The wheels are 17x9 +30 with 225/45's and a 15mm spacer. So there's a little gap. Also there is only one bolt holding the fender on too.

I got the LSD in and rest of the body work done(but still need a hood)

In the air




On the ground




So I havent worked on the car all week till last night. I did get the lights all wired up and got some paint on the car too. I know its not much of an update.





Ok, I like I said here are some pics. This will be the last update for the next few weeks. I was scheduled to have surgery next month but they called me this afternoon and told me they could get me in tomorrow(12 Oct 12) so I said sure. So I'll be laid up for a bit.

Some outside pics




Here is the trunk stripped nothing exciting.



While I was in the trunk I decided to go ahead and fix the "body work" the dumbass that had the car before me did(tape and bondo).

Welded


Bondo


Done(mostly)


Here are some pics of the hydro e-brake





Here is what I'm using as a handle



When I took her for a spin the other day I couldn't get into the driveway with my front bumper on so she was lifted 1/2 an inch and took out a little camber.

Oh sh*t whats this? Stripped car? Dust? Could it be........ Why yes it is. I sanded the car down this evening to get it ready for some primer.








The rest of my stuff to get the rear overs on should be here in a few days. I'm still on doctors restrictions so I cant finish the E-brake right now. I should be able to get back to it soon. Well that's it for now.

Look whats going down tomorrow!!!!!






Sorry for the crappy hazy pics but here you go









I think I might wet sand it tomorrow then hit it with another coat of clear.

Here you go! She is "almost" ready for the road.








I have the mirror left to paint. The rear overs should be ready to go on next weekend.

Here is Hydro E-Brake V1.0



The drivers view


I need to do some finish grinding and paint it.

Here is where I'm at as of right now. The SR should be going in sometime around the first of the year.

Not much of an update but I put my JDM rear seats in and removed quite a bit of airbag sh*t.





Airbag sh*t gone



So, the SR came out of its cocoon the other day.





And on the stand ready to be put back together.





So the reason the engine is going back together is because the wife got mad I spent all that time packing it and t getting it ready to bring back then turn around and sell it. So, its gonna go into the car shortly after I get a few things from a friend in Japan it will go in. I'm "HOPING" to get it in by New Years but we'll see.

Well I got out in the garage tonight and got the valve cover, sump, oil pan and pick up put on. As I was going through my stuff I found out my intake mani and exhaust mani gaskets didn't make it. So I'll have to order those. Well anyway I do have pics.




So I got one of these today with the help from the guys at BK Industries in Boise



And I might go with paint color code LS1

I got some of the wiring done tonight in between studying.

The nest




Wires that need to be shortened and tucked in the dash



What's left that will be staying the bay


How the wheel well will look



Before anyone says it. Yes all wires will be wrapped and protected.
