  • The new S-Chassis family member (Brother's 180)

    A few nights ago, my brother and I picked up our second s-chassis car. This time, a gorgeous black 180sx rolling shell.
    This is gonna be a long build and a slow one but i can guarantee that it will be epic. And i don't use that word often.

    Here's some pictures of the shell:

    Goooorgeous

    Need to re-attach the rear wiper for JDM goodness and get an origin style duck-tail spoiler

    Front half pretty much needs to be new'ed. The engine blew up which is why the paint's all ****ed and the bonnets a bit bent.
    Also, front half plan: d-max style bonnet with some wide guards to fit 17x9.5s all around.

    So much room for activities!

    Rosey, if you read this. This was the rust i was actually talking about, but i was being all secretive and shit. Think it's fixable without a welder?

    Door cards are mint and it came with a water temp and boost guage


    And in case you missed it folks, yes. That was the ashtray closed

    Also found this in the glovebox. JDM as fffuuu

    And in true race-car fashion, a toggle switch, which i have no idea what it does

    120ks on the clock, pretty young for a car 22 years old

    Have you ever seen what potential actually looks like? Because i have.
    And because i'm kind, i'll share it with you. This, my friends, is what potential looks like:

    Also, lol. I imagine this is the result of a blown engine:


    And that's all for now!
    Stay tuned as this car slowly gets transformed into a beast.

          Looks like its completely rusted through. Cut & shut. I'd help out but my welder's way down here...

          Looks awesome man, can't wait for mods to start.

          EDIT: Switch was probably for the battery. Follow it?

                I'll have to MacGyver something up with this rust then too, by the sounds of it.
                I followed the switch to the headlight motor. I'm guessing the guy, for some reason, re routed the headlight activation button thingo to be by a toggle switch.
                Orrrrr. It could be, because it was a drifter, a switch to raise just one of the headlights to make it look like it's winking.
                I dunno, i'll have to check it out when there's a battery in there.

                Brother plans to do all of the above.
                It'll be a daily driver with something around the 250kw mark for power, or at least that's what he's aiming for, and it will be done very tastefully.

                Most of it really comes to budget though. Depending on how much he works will depend on how quickly and how well this car turns out.

                    HALF CUTTTT!!! Shit just got real!

                    I'm going to assume the switch was for sleepy eyes if it heads to the headlights.

                      What?


                      What is this?
































                      The fact that it came with a Nardi is a good bonus too. Those Nardi wheels are awesome.

                        It came with some electronics too. I have no idea what they do but b*tches love electronics in cars.
                        Also digital climate control. Maaaaaaad.

                        Also, this half-cut hasn't been complied in Australia, lol. Straight outta japan.


                        And what's this? An uncracked dash? Mmmm.

                            Never saw the update (WTAC), can't wait til everything is swapped over. (Y)

                              That rust looks pretty major, Villain. Not to mention the amount of issues I can see in the pictures (holes in the dash?!?! a big hole where an engine usually sits? the fuark dude?)

                              Look, I don't want you and your brother going through the stresses of fixing all these major issues. How's about you guys just sell me the half cut and shell for... $1,000? And that's being generous.
























                              Damn you two though. Damn you all.
