Default whore of a coupe

well here we go again
picked up this beauty the other day
It was toms old coupe, he got the cage done by Jeff.
It was sold to two different people, then sold to me

as i take this car apart i see no rust. its crazy, the only spot Ive found is a small hole in the passenger wheel well.

so now comes some work to the shell, wiring, swapping the parts over from the hatch

coupe in my garage


where all my groceries are going to go


stated taking the goodies out of the hatch




i found this little treat. my stainless steel oil cooler line had rubbed a hole in my IC pipe. I'm surprised i didn't notice this. no loss in idle vacuum or anything


got my cooler off. the lines hooked together with a -10 male to male fitting



now im swapping all the suspension off.
putting the green car stuff on,
maybe a fender tub or two
half motor build
turbo
burnouts

Well man, GL with this one. From what you told me and Tyler the other day it should suit your needs well. Can't wait to see it in action!

Edit: Also, I am sad to see the green hatch go. I love the way that car looks.

you can find silvia fronts cheap if you pay attention.

I paid $150 for mine (now on your old vert) and there was one that was up on zilvia last week for $80

...unless you want an aero bumper... and brick headlights... and a GTR grill... then prepare to pay out the ass...

I can't wait to see this build develop though
