So today I went and I bought an s13 shell.This is my first 240 that I have owned. I'm really happy with the deal I got and am looking forward to bringing her back to life. So far my plans with her are:

Dry ice
Clean the engine bay
Do a wire tuck
Swap in a ka24e-t (I have a t25 laying around)
All new interior
Roll Cage
New seats
Sand it and then paint midnight purple (look at my siggy)


Other than that I have no set plans for the car other than just replacing things that go bad or that are old. Here are some pictures of it. (Yes it's Ben's)

edit:the hatch opens like it is fresh off the lot. It is the most satisfying thing :P

Update: Got the title! Quiet title works for any of you wondering out there, I am now the proud (and legal) owner of a 1991 240sx :D Tomorrow hopefully comes the swap so look forward to pictures of that and if anyone has an exhaust for an s13 for cheap let me know, doesn't have to be aftermarket (I'd prefer 3 inch) just need something to stay a little more quiet! Thanks :D

Would you be interested in another 240 parts car? Full interior, clean dash, very clean from the doors back. $700

Nah, got everything I need for now :p thanks though.

Here's an update from over the weekend:


Took pirate to the shop to pull the motor.

Out came the motor,

Image

And I left after we got my car into the shop.

Image

Almost ready to put her in. All I have to do is put the clutch assembly in, switch out the harnesses (and wire the single cam to dual cam), clean the bay, repaint the valve cover, remove powersteering, and remove AC. Really excited to finish this and take it to the upcoming drift event :P

Fast Updates..

First thing I did last night after I got off work was put my clutch pedal in.

Image

Pulled the dash to remove AC system and make for easy wiring.

Image

Image

Next we dropped the motor in after removing power steering and AC.

Image

Here's my good friend Eric working some magic on the valve cover.

Image

And in she goes.

Image

Image

I did start it up, but I don't have time to upload the video. Tonight I'm putting in the driveshaft, custom fabbing an exhaust, finding the idle problem, and misc stuff. Thanks for reading.

It is. Nothing else painted quite like it. Or have the custom side skirts.
