Rocket Bunny V2 S13

Hello everybody! I'm Juuso from Finland and I own an Nissan 200SX S13 CA18DET.

In June 2014 when I was sixteen. I really didn't have large plans for the car then, but I wanted to do something that has not been built in Finland yet. Here is the car when I bought her! She was as project and the engine was not running. There were few things that needed to be done to get her running, but I decided to take the whole car apart, because I had two years time to get my drivers license.




After removing almost whole interior, automatic transmission and engine the car was taken to a barn for winter. I did plan to rebuild the whole engine in that winter, but then my family decided to move so I was busy on moving and did not have a lot of spare time while moving and I just had started my car mechanic school.

















After taking the car to winter sleep I started to take the engine apart. I painted the block and few parts black. My plan was to make the engine 95% black, but then I was told that VHT wrinkle was a illegal paint in Finland the plan was ruined. I have not still not decided what I'll do with the engine. We'll see in near future.



While the winter I bought some nice parts for the car. Pair of used real Bride Zeta III's, Work Equip 05 wheels and Stancenation x Vertex limited edition steering wheel.







Also me and my dad did do a 6spd Getrag V160 swap and rebuild the engine of dad's JZA80. Made over 500rwhp, but with stock fuel pump and stock injectors engine didn't get enough fuel to make more power. After taking the car to dyno dad bought new injectors, fuel line and fuel pump so this problem will be fixed for next summer.



Finally in June I could do something to my car in our new garage! I test fitted the wheels and the results were.. Well, good I guess?



Few months after test fitting the wheels I received a large package from Japan, Kyoto.


Finally, finally my dream body kit has arrived! Rocket Bunny "380SX" kit! I had to go to garage same night to test fit the kit! I fell in love with it and the fitment was really good!








Next day it was time to install lower part of front lip to bumper. All the holes to the lip were predrilled so I did not need to wonder where to attach the lip.









Few days later I built the huge rear diffuser and installed it!












Next part was to make first test cut to front fender and install the duck tail spoiler.








After test fitting the RB front fenders I did not like how they fitted. They were hitting to body. Time to make some room! All the wiring and dash were removed. I did remove everything from engine bay too so I can make larger tubs.















Also we did make much room as possible to rear wheels. Also notice that this was my first time ever welding! I am pretty happy to the results.














Next part was to weld the cabin back together and test fit the front fenders again! They fitted perfectly!






Front fenders were cutted and stock sound deadening removal was started! Interior will stay at bare metal and I'll only install the dash, door panels and front seats. Everything else will be removed. I am thinking to paint the interior with semigloss dark grey.






After cutting and welding the car together it was time to install all the body kit parts to the car! All fenders and side skirts were installed and next thing to do was installing the front bumper, lower part of fenders and canards.





And this is how the car sits now!




Ps; Sorry for all misspelling! I try my best to fix every wrong word and mistake I wrote.

I hope so! I have plans for paint job that is going to share opinions and some will hate me for it.

Also my trailer fender is waiting on my local post office for me, but it is closed for two more days. After picking it up I can start to plan the engine bay! And 326power coilovers should be sent from Japan soon as Mr.Stancenation gets a shipping price information from them.

Well x-mas is now over and ended! Finally.....
Car is looking sad again. Whole frontend is now dissembled for the engine bay's tubing project!
The plan is to get the whole engine bay welded during my vacation, but we'll see do I have enough time for it. Let's keep the thumbs up tho!



I do not understand who the hell rapes engine bay like this!?


I cleaned up some sound deadening with angle grinder. Really loud, messy and shitty work, but I think the interior will look great after some dark gray paint!

I can not understand how hard it is to chose a good color for this car.. I have 180grams of "House of Kolor F14 rainbow" flake for the car. I have been bouncing between red and blue color. I love blue, but this blue it has now is definitely not my favorite shade of blue so the whole car will be repainted and imo red suits S13 really really well.

Today I picked up the fender from my local post office and did some ruff cuts to engine bay!


First of all I did cut the fender in half





A quick test fit! Fender needs some more cutting to fit it there. It's too high at the moment.


Next thing to do was removing the battery tray.. What a pain in the ass to be honest..



Step. 1 cuts to the engine bay.






And I ended the day with planning the metal plates for the fender. I think it will look good after some welding and paint!

Something small from today.. Not very much, but something! Trailer fender needs some more width, but I think it is a small problem in middle of all the other problems.

Thanks guys!

They're pretty wide.. I might need new inner barrels for front wheels tho. I think they will hit coils. Well I gotta try them on when the coils arrive.
F: 18x12" +24 275/35r18
R: 18x13.5" +16 315/30r18

Oh, I did also order Kouki tails and they should arrive in few weeks. I'll post some more pictures when engine bay is fully welded back together.

Thank you!

It really is. You can spend hours on it and even one side is not ready. I hope another side is faster to do.


_____

Today I picked up some ziptie holders from Wurth. Hella expensive, but I hope that these will make my wiring look better! 0.86€ | 0.93$/pcs. My plans are to move battery, fuse-box and relay-box to trunk.







Also after month trying to find good color for the car and engine bay, I found a combo I really like! Like usually, picture can't tell how the colors really look, but yeah..



Also those colors combined to this "House of Kolor F14" flake is going to look really nice for my taste!

Some updates from today! Engine bay is fully welded back together and passenger's side is sanded, painted with filler and added some body filler to smooth those welds. My goal is to get the car paint ready in this month. We'll see how it goes..




Also coils are coming at Frankfurt so I should receive them next week if we're lucky!

Ei kerenny iskarit vielä tälle viikonlopulle, mutta eiköhän ne jo ensiviikolla tule kera toisen paketin! Konehuonetta käyty hiomassa ja kittaamassa uudelleen. Vähän tuli otettua liikaa kun ekaa kertaa pääsi koneella hiomaan... :lol: Maalausaika on sovittu ei vielä ensiviikoksi vaan sitä seuraavalle. Sitten nähdään millasta se toi sateenkaari hile oikeasti on!


Welp, the coils didn't come in this week, but I hope they'll arrive next week just like my new tail lights! Today I did go for a fast spin at the garage and did do some sanding and added more body filler. The engine bay is going to be painted in two weeks! I hope that the rainbow flake will look good.

Fast friday night spin at garage! Did some more sanding to engine bay and removed lillabit of OEM sound deadening. I hate that stuff..

Also installed my new tails! I have never before seen Kouki tails in real life, but they look awesome! Better than I expected! I am really happy with these!





Also received my coils this week! This might be the first set of 326power coilovers in Finland. I am amazed how good these feel in hands and how much attention there are to small details! I love it!

I am staying with the CA18det for now, because I want to learn how to drive with lower power engine before I swap something with six cylinders in her.

Finally the engine bay is starting to look good!





Got some stickers from JaplandTv, finally after waiting 2.5months.



Stock wheels vs Equips made me laugh..

Thank you! I read some articles of S13s that had the Rocket Bunny kit and looked up the specs. Then I just tested out what set of wheels could work for me on willtheyfit.com

Around a week ago I left my car at the paint shop and in first week interior was painted and my dad sent me photo of recently painted engine bay! I frekin love it! Can't wait to see it IRL. There is around four liters of clear in the engine bay to make the flake covered.
