my new car.

well i am building a new car. It is the ex-drift car from Modern Speed Labs in Indianapolis In.

Needless to say, it needs a lot of love. I have already patched 2 rust holes in the floorpan, There is a lot of surface rust underneith, but other than that, and the ugly paint job, the car is in good shape.

It has Version Select Aero Kit Version IV with 30mm front fenders and 50mm rear fenders.

I have borrowed a Mig Welder from a friend and I am reinforcing the body and adding a few stich welds in certain places. As well as adding supports for the Condensor Core that I am putting in because I want to retain my A/C and that part of the Core Support has been cut out. The rear fenders were also not done properly and were rolled with a baseball bat. The 50mm fiberglass fender is jjust sitting on top of the older fender. I am going to cut the old fender out and weld sheet metal to join to the fiberglass fender. (if you saw it you would know what I was talking about.

I will be taking my extensivly modified sr20det out of my 95 240sx and transplanting it in the new one once I am done with the body and suspension.

MSL Custom Tension Rods, Traction Rods. RUCA, Nismo Power Brace, Nismo Motor Mounts, Stick Welded Body.

The wing on back is getting being pulled off.

I have a z32 brake system to put on it, including the aluminum rear spindles and parking brake.

I also have a carbon fiber hood, aluminum driveshaft, clutch disks for my HKS twin plate,

I am also going to get SPL outer tie rod ends and z32 inner tie rods , aftermarket sway bars, SPL solid Subframe mounts, and SPL solid rear diffriental mounts, and Stance Coilovers.

other mods include the JDM digital climate control (i managed to find all of the sensors, motors, and crap to make this work) S2000 start button, eFan, CrimeGard Security System, infinity speakers all around, with tweeters in my a-pil||ar and a 10" sub in back. SAFC2, HKS Full Auto Turbo Timer, JDM folding power mirrors, JDM din gauges...

I sourced out a black interior, and i will be painting the car black with possibly silver metalflake using ppg paint.

There is a lot of stuff that I am leaving out, simply because there is so much crap that I am doing to this thing. The amount of work and money that I am putting into this thing is absolutly stupid, I know, But I love these cars.

I will update this with more pics after i upload them to my server.

another little tidbit... japan only exported 2178 of these to the united states in 98.
