i hope these is the right spot for this so what happened was i found this 1989 240sx se fastback at a junkyard (rust free) and i was going to buy it, but my buddy being the dick that he is bought it before i was able too, then he asked me to help him work on it, so being the nice guy that i am i did, but i did all the work on it, since he doesn't know anything about cars, anyways, after i finished working on it, he ended up going behind my back and selling it to his friend dylon. Then about 4 months ago, i heard that dylon was selling the 240sx, so needless to say i bought it, and now im in the process of doing a sr20det engine swap. So far the car is coming along pretty good, i've had this engine for about three years now, i ended up getting it pretty cheap because my uncles an english teacher in japan, go figure, so right now im going through the car and fixing everything that was done half assed from the previous owner, i'll post pictures of the progress, feel free to leave any comments or suggestions, here you go here are the pics

this is the head light bracket after i had drill out the spot welds and i need to replace this so if you guys know wrere i can get i let me know

this is the right side and i drilled out this side too this one is salvagable




i have to clean the interior out (its not that bad) i have a 91 front bumper

these are the wires that i had removed out of the ka24e harness iam going to try to make it work on the sr (i hope the car dose not go up in smoke)


here is a better pic of the harness

i need these to if you guys know were i can get them let me know (thanks andy for the pics)

still looking for these too


stock T-25 VS 50 trim

the maniflod looks good in the pic but the weads are crappy

Dude, it's "rough." Not "ruff."

Looks like a nice project. You can convert the km/h speedo to read miles per hour, by the way - check the tech section.

Meh, it's more fun to learn metric units.

Bobby, good luck with getting all those body pieces in place. Finding them shouldn't be bad, but making sure they're properly welded in place might be a b1tch.

I look forward to seeing your progress.

You can't just take a SawzAll to a junkyard? There are plenty of junk S13's at yards around here. Only problem is your have to find one without significant front end damage.
