I'm just curious where you found a new JDM front lip. These build threads are great, keep it up!

Most of the brand new aero parts I've acquired are from people who never finished their own builds.

My VSXX for example. Those are brand new 17/18 stagger in discontinued sizes. Bought them from someone who had them in storage for years.

Some brand new parts have been through contacts at Nissan.

I apologize for the extremely late update, but priorities will always be priorities and cars tend to be put on the back burner for me.

My brother and I finally share the same work schedule. We were able to reinstall the spare KA I have along with the complete Greddy turbo kit to do a final mock up of where everything will be placed prior to sending the car off for paint.

All unnecessary holes in the engine bay have been marked. Core support will still be made removable for easy access when pulling the engine. Intake manifold will be stripped of all smog related components. The only items we have left to mock up are an FPR, oil cooler with oil filter relocation, and the Chasebays PS reservoir.

I have to say, I absolutely love the Greddy KA-T kit. It is allowing us to keep AC on the car without having to run a bunch of custom parts. Also, we didn't have to cut unnecessary holes for the FMIC. Greddy made everything fit using existing holes. We will be running larger injectors along with an AEM EMS V2 instead of the piggy back ECU Greddy includes with their kit.

Just to give you an idea of how it'll be looking once we get everything buttoned up. Motor will be fully refreshed with new seals and nothing will go back onto the car until it's been restored/refinished.





Evo brembo's also fit quite nicely behind the TE's. Calipers will be sand blasted and powdercoated for final assembly after the car comes back from paint.







Oh, I also sold off all of the used K's aero parts and managed to source everything new. Bumpers are obviously still fairly easy to buy, but good luck trying to find BNIB valances, lip, and sideskirts with original instructions/hardware.

I have stocked up on more rare goods to go on the car once final assembly rolls around.

Looks awesome. I balked at the cost of the Greddy kit when I turbo'd my KA. Should have gone with it because by the end I had spent about the same money 10x the time and still didn't have a good running car when I was done.

Late update is better than no update.

Teaser pics from the painter.





Car is being prepped this week. Paint should be on it by next week.

Hopefully have the car back by December to start reassembly.

I like sunroofs, but due to the age of these cars, I just feel that they'll be problematic as time goes on. Having to source replacement parts would be a pain.
Blahhhhh, you really think it'll be tough? I'll be looking into getting into an S14 in a couple of months and do plan on keeping it for a long time, but sunroofs are a nice addition.

Just google "S14 sunroof trim".

That's the most common piece to go out on S14 sunroofs.

No replacement available. With a sunroof, you run the risk of having leaks, rust forming around the base, less headroom, etc.

All of my cars are hardtop.

Thank you for the knowledge on that trim, I didn't know about that until I researched it.

Love sunroofs but, yeah you're right these cars are old and would hate to do a roof skin swap or let alone stress on sourcing parts.

Seeing the color in person was an absolute joy. I haven't been this excited to work on a car in years.











After 10 hours on the road, my younger brother has his new 2018 project car.





The owner had it sitting around for a few years unfortunately due to the S14 SR developing a blown head gasket.

Focusing on making it a fun street car. So, the build will be kept simple with reliability being top priority. KA swap is on its way along with new suspension, adjustable arms, wheels, and plenty more.

Before the S14 SR went bad.

That was another car we were going to put together, but I decided to sell the chassis due to it having an aftermarket sunroof delete along with flared/pulled rear quarter panels.

I still have some of the Navan stuff hanging around in storage.

The red Kouki was just too good to pass up. My younger brother wanted something for himself to tinker with without worrying about damaging anything. I'm not a short tempered person by any means, but he knows how much my blue Kouki and hatch mean to me.

Car is now sitting safely at home. Putting it on stands on Monday, pulling all of the suspension off the car along with the fuel tank/lines and prepping it for undercoat.





We also decided to do a flat clear on the underside of the trunk and hood. I've always disliked the super glossy underside of hoods when you're looking at an engine bay.

Managed to fully assemble one of the doors.

Haven't added sound deadening to the door just yet, but will be doing that pretty soon.

New rubber moldings and window trim.





S15 was long overdue for some fab work. Had a local swing by and take the car over to his place to finally weld in door bars.







Aiming to have the S14 fully reassembled within the next month or so. Some interior trim panels are going to be dropped off at a local upholstery shop for a custom finish. Wanted to set the interior apart from the usual S-chassis / Bride door panel inserts.

Finished assembling both doors, installing all new trim, rubber moldings, etc.

Should have the subframe and crossmember off by tomorrow to start prepping the underbody for undercoat.

Front fenders and hood haven't been aligned yet. Just mocked up for now until my new hardware comes in.

Fortunately, yes. I don't know for how long though.

Man, I really like the matte clear on the hood. That's a cool idea. Replicates the factory look well.

What you are doing right now is exactly what I want to do... I just can't afford it, LOL. One of these days... looks like so much fun!
