Update!

I probably should of updated this last year, but as always, I'm too caught up on things.

Onto the build thread!

Installed the CAS, timing bracket, timing tensoner, the rest of the freeze plugs for the head, and the valve cover
Image
Image
Image

Installed the P/S pump, I cant find my Greddy pulley otherwise I'd have it installed.
Image

Bought a Tomei FPR
Image

I got the alternator and belt installed
Image

Current state in what the motor looks like after the rebuild
Image

I bought some roll around wheels MB Battles. The MB Battles are staggered, 17x9.5 +15 and 18x9.5 +15, with Federal 595's 215/40 front and 225/40 rear. Here's a mock up on what it looks like in the rear, I only bought the rear 5 lug conversion, so to be continued for the fronts.
Image
Image
Image

Overall this is the current state in what the project is currently at, I wont update for a while due to the fact that im really in credit card debt with the engine rebuild, so sorry but hey it was well worth it no regrets. 8)

I just went back and checked. This build is spanning 4 years at this point. That is some dedication. Best of all look how much you have learned in the process.

Guess who's back

Dereck came over a while back to help mock up the over fenders, we first taped it all up with painters tape then worked around with it, and drilled holes at the appropriate areas and installed Clecos before putting actual rivits in them just to make sure everything looks dead on. I'd have to say it came out pretty well.
Image
Image
Image

I then handed the car over to Rolando to have the quarter panels cut and welded (which he did a amazing job in cutting), but ended up handing it over to Chris at Nobles Automotive. I gave him pretty much shopping list of everything I wanted done before I get my hands on her again.
Image
Nobles installed the radiator support got the rear crash bar completed, and almost finished the rear quarters.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

I went down to Lincoln MO not only to check out the progress, but he needed the doors and taillights to begin the next job. But after a 2 hour drive I realized I forgot the center section of the taillight shit lol. The car seeing it before my eyes was breathe taking to say the least. I wanted him to lower the lift but I had to head back before it got dark (because I'm afraid of the dark duh)
Image
Image
Image
The front crash bar still has a little bit of work to do, but it looks done to me! That mock up of the s15 front btw is 10x better than me laying it all on there like a pile of wood. You cant really notice, but you can kind of see I got my front 5 lug and the MB Battles are finally on.

So I recently got some news on how my car is doing at the shop, the front and rear crash bar are done, metal fender work is done, and all rear aero is fitted. The S13.5 conversion fenders are getting glass work done to them because they were short at the doors. I'll see if I can get some pictures soon.

Until then here's a teaser pic of the roll cage in progress!

Looks amazing man! I can't believe how much hard work and dedication you've put into this over the years it's been since I last was on here. lol I went through the whole thread and was just blown away. Keep up the good work dude, I can't wait to see the finished product! Also - stop considering selling it! Here we are years later and I still have my beater ass 240 and you still have your masterpiece. Don't give up on it! Sick ass cage by the way.

Its been way too long since I posted on kcdrift, but why not start with a huge thanks to John for getting my work out there. I take a lot of pride in my custom work and if anyone ever needs a little help getting their car to the next level, Hit me up. John can certainly vouch that I will do whatever it takes to work with anyones budget. Car will be sick when its done. Hopefully if things work out it will be running and driving for the first event in 2014?

Maybe not the first but an event closer to July is when I plan to have it up and running. I can vouch for Noble he definitely is trustworthy and will work with you when times are bad.

Cage has been all anchored, and the drives floor have been dehumped. All the aero is fitted. Getting ready to glue the quarters and rivet all the aero on. Next will be a little body time to make fenders match doors.
