whats up people my name is <^>John<^>None<^>Ponce<^> and this is...
PROJECT LILIA

i recently owned a black 240sx that i used as a temporary shell due to the amount of rust. Now i just recently purchased a 1990 Nissan 240sx w/ a RHD conversion. i bought it off of craigslist in california for like $800 never actually saw it in person but made my best judgement w/ the pics he had sent me.

These are old pics he showed me:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

These were recent pics:
Image
Image
Image

ya he painted it satan which is cool 4 now....

And this is were the Build Begins!

First before i like to start this dank build i like to take before pics of the entire vehicle
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Now its time to START! finally ugh
I started to tear down the interior. I pretty much am going to completely strip it to start removing the sound deading which i have never done! but luckily i had heard that dry ice helps break it down so it won't be to bad right?

Tools:
10, 12, 14mm socket
3/8 ratchet w/ extension
needle nose
pliers
flat/star head screwdriver

Image

I started by removing the seats and just went from there...
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

After half of it was stripped i started to lay trash bags down to prepare 4 DRY ICE!
Image
Image
Image

thats it 4 today

Sorry for the delay in updates but some things came up my dog recently had to go threw surgery, to sum things up he had a herniated disc and he's recovering just great :) just a FYI the surgery costed $3100 and it was worth every penny i mean he's my baby
Image

so anyways to continue in were i last stopped i currently took a break on taking out the sound deading such a PITA! so i decided to remove the whole front end
Image
Started with the fenders
Image
Image
removed left fender
Image
removed front bumper
Image
then the right fender
Image
Image
now for the lights started with the right
Image
and lastly the left front end completely off yo ;)
Image
Image
i even managed to take off the hatch woot woot score! pretty much my intentions are this 1. strip entire vehicle 2. remove sound deadning 3. fix and repair 4. prep it 4 paint!

okay so i started to go back in the car to remove the sound deadening and i just couldn't keep my eyes off this hidous harness it makes everything look like a train wreck so i decided to remove it

but first i took many pics of the mess just in case i need it later on 4 reference
Image
Image
Image
Notice in this pic u can clearly see stuff being hold by zip ties ya maybe my bumper but nty on the rhd conversion
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

After i unplugged, unbolted, and dyked everything i managed to put all the mess off to the side and made my life alot easier in removing the sound deadening here you can see that i used the heat gun to get all the sound deadening off after getting majority of it off with dry ice

Image
Image

After going to the local parts store i picked up some adhesive remover to get all that gunk off started on the what is now the passenger side
Image
heres a Before pic
Image
After pic
Image
ah so much better working on getting the whole inside like this

man that looks like you have a BIG project up front of you.

that's crazy how that guy did the conversion

so are you going to redo the rhd swap and swap out fire walls or you going to run it the way is and clean up the firewall

being exhausted from cleaning up the junk left from heat gunning the sound deadening i moved to the front of the car in taking out the engine. now im going to be brief on this because there is so much info in removing and installing a ka but here we go!

Image
I first removed the battery

Image
then the intake system aka "whale penis" haha i have to much fun with the camera

Image
Image
removed the radiator hoses then the fan connected to the engine and pulled the radiator and fan shroud as 1 combo

Image
completely took the power steering system off

Image
blocked my wheels in the rear

Image
jacked the front

Image
wooo im exhausted..... ok

Image
removed the downpipe cat and catback exhaust as one combo

Image
then the drive shaft and me trying to curl one haha ahh the aluminum one will be much easier to curl im not that strong :)
also unbolted the tranny mount bracket

Image
while i was down there i got the lower engine harness, slave cylinder, and that tranny gear speed thing i forgot what its called but hey it's removed!

Image
went back on top and removed the upper engine harness, gear shifter, and unbolted the 2 engine mounts

Image]
i know probably not a good idea to put chains around the power steering pump but i did it anyways out of eager to get this thing out and about so i started to put the chains on the p/s pump to hoist it out of there until...

Image
Image
there was like no where 4 me to wrap this other side on so i had to remove the heat shield connected to the exhaust manifold but before i could do that i had to remove this emissions junk

Image
ahh much better
Image
now its time to puller out right MEOW!

Image
Image
Image
Note: i have a floor jack in front of the car to raise and lower the front as needed this helped me more to have a floor jack here then on the tranny like what most people do.

Image
oh ya its getting closer!

Image
CLOSER!

Image
kiss it good bye
Image
Image
Image
Image
and its OUT!

Image
Image
now dropping in the KAT!

Image
Image
little more tweaks and she'll be set in there snug

Image
Done! freshly rebuilt KAT installed haha to bad a sr is gonna be going in this bad boy!
