Jealous buuut this time around you already know what to do so we won't have to wait YEARS to see it in person hehe
Bonus though on a Southern car. My own was from Tx and yeah its sooo nice not seeing any rot holes. Oh what about the interior and options? SE? I can't tell due to the gloss of the photo over the roof. c'mon man I know you most likely already decoded the option info haha.

interior is immaculate, standard SE cloth (gray with the horrible 90s pattern inserts)

as for options it's a pretty plain SE, no ABS, no keyless entry or alarm, the low end stereo package. it does have a sun roof.

not that much of that matters as I'll be pulling most of that stuff off of the other car into this one. I'm not sure if I'm going to try retrofitting a Nissan keyless/alarm system or just buy an aftermarket one.

first thing though is just getting together all of the parts I'll need to do the swap, I need to buy a new radiator (old one works, but it's warped) new parts for the exhaust, and start researching cams. I might also do an electric water pump and a few other "while I'm in there" things.

the plan is to get everything I need together and then do the swap over a long weekend.

With you being the smart fellow you are I'm guessing you already tried the little toggle in the trunk that controls the privacy latch? Idk if the s14 has one but my coupe does.

The little tab on the right pic. It is part of the latch mechanism

Hope i was helpful lol and not making a fool of myself

P.S. Please keep a link to your old build on this 1st page so people can look back at the past progress on the old shell. I for 1 really like going back through an seeing the build unfold.

Mike, just make sure you are doing cam, valvesprings, and pushrods at the same time.

you know I looked for one and didn't see any any but I was honestly more interested in checking out the condition of the rest of the car, now that it's home safe and sound it's probably worth another look.
