  • Nothing much has been happening have just been enjoying the car for what it is.

    But I did buy one of these. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/221147006...ht_3873wt_1112



    I always thought the rear view mirror felt quite small and this thing sure does solve that problem, love it!

    • Up until reading through this thread, I was keen on flogging off my S13 and going for a 32, your dedication has inspired me and thrown a spanner in to the works. So now to start figuring out whether to throw the saving down on a 32, or invest a good 8k into an S13 build... Decisions decisions...

        If you have S13 put that money where your mouth is - INVEST!

        On topic: Nice build you got there keep up.

          I have a belted '89 S13, which I have already sunk way too much money into (about 7-8k since I bought it last October, and aesthetically - it's atrocious) - hence just wanting a fresh canvas to work with. I wouldn't be opposed to a nice clean S13 to build, but my current one... not so much.

          • Not sure how you could import it but I found this S15 SR20 that is pretty straight. http://page8.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/h170243343 We personally have 3 SR20s, 1 RB26DETT 3 RB25DET S2s and assorted RB20DETs laying around our shop with no home. But we have no way of shipping them to you.

                  • Thought I should mention here that I picked up a bargen. Free!



                    This thing probably won't go into the S13 though since I'm on my P plates. If people are interested I might start logging the tare down/build and might put it in an S12 Gazelle for some track fun!

                      • Alright so I bought a a flywheel, starter motor and CA bellhousing for $60! So if an SR20 gearbox pops up I'll be able to use it no problem.

                        I still needed a clutch and the flywheel machined and that was going to going to be $440 not including the machine. So I asked my boss at work to call up the guys we normally use and I got the flywheel machined and a new clutch/spigot bush for $210!



                        Now all I need are some flywheel bolts and a gearbox.

                            The Master Cylinder had a leak at some point in its life. Still not entirely sure if it is still leaking or not (I don't think it is...) But the Booster had alot of paint missing so I painted that.
                            I forgot to take a before picture but if you can't tell that it has been painted then I did a good job.



                            And the lights looked a bit like this.



                            And then this.

                              What about ring gear for the flywheel?

                                Well I masked up the headlights, used some scotch bright and one of those little artsy air paint spraying thing that I can't remember the name of for some reason...

                                Ring gear for the flywheel? Whaaa??? The ring gear is part of the flywheen, just you can't see it from that angle. I'll post another picture just for you when I get home.
