      Yeah I hear its a huge job to get the dash out and then put a new one in. I'm about to do it next week.

        okay so its been a long time so this is a bit of an up date on how everything is going!

        this is what it was like before.... (sad old and on its last legs)


        this is what it looked like after a hard day of work down in the shed....


        and this is what me and my mates have done on another hard day at work ....


        the end result.... one awesome job well done!

        it went from an sr20de that was in need of alot of love to a JDM s15 spec R sr20det.

                    The question is... What's "Cheap"? they cost roughly 3,500 for spec R motors over here in the states...

                      Awesome update man. I would've loved R32 GTR seats but the price tag scared me off.
                      That spec r SR20s gonna be a lot of fun compared to the DE.

                              it was so easy man all the bolt points match besides the outer rear one, all i did was make up a bracket out of a nice big thick bit of steel to extend them, i dident want to weld as it makes the steel weaker and if i ever want to sell the seats i will get more money if everything is unmodified.

                                Ouch... That one stung the heart a little bit.

                                Damn good deal on the motor though! That's S14 sr price territory for a MUCH better motor. Good buy man!
