So i purchased my 90 240sx about 2 years ago. All stock with sr20det with blown headgasket fairly cheap id say. Fixed head gasket and valve job and the whole sha-bang just to get running at the time. Ran perfect. Ordered exhaust manifold, turbo outlet pipe, and other small things. Ran fine. Week later turbo failed. Upgraded. Long story short im starting all over :roll:

So this is my car when i bought it:

Here was HG after teardown:

After 1st Rebuild:

So I decided on redoing my previous attempt of building my s13. The CORECT way. :P
Let the teardown begin!
Right before I began to tear down :cry:
Image

Tore all car down:

And my horrible attempt at stripping bay:

Now I went ahead and remove rear subframe and front crossmember:

And placed on trailer to take to get engine bay and under carriage sandblasted(took all glass off also):

That's as of now how its going. Waiting to go pick up when done and then send off to weld as well.
Will try to keep update as much as possible. Thanks. 8)

Man looks like a pretty intense rebuild. Good luck. What's your plans for the car?

Shaved bay. Built SR. Just overall clean s13 look. Still undecided on fuel to run and suspension setup to go with. Not really drift car but looking at buying a missile sooner or later.

I need me one of those rotisseries. Be way easier to weld and paint later on. Cant wait to see how much rust i get to fix when i get my car from sandblasting :|

This build makes me want to trade my 14 for a hatch.

So yesterday since it was kinda nice out decided to do my rear sub-frame bushing upgrade. Took all arms and links off.

Cut out all the inside bushings. Talk about breaking a sweat. Decided to just use my saw-saw on last two. Way easier if you have one.

Was outside so i just went ahead and lit them on fire with torch.

Make sure to let neighbors know or they'll call the firefighters on you. Ooops :lol:

All done and cleaned em up and ready to get sent off to get powdercoat with knuckles and front cross-member :mrgreen:
