seriously sweet build.
its probably gonna be the last thing im going to paint, i have no clue what color to paint it. thing is that the car is going to be a "flat" color. it called "Gunsmoke metallic flatz" so overall flat with metallic in it. basically since the outside is flat i figured i might as well have eveything else "pop" color wise that is.

why? i figured that with the cams and the turbo it should make decent power.

Coming right the fuck along. I also have an engine bay with all -AN fittings and Aeroquip line, with a tucked/braided harness being put together. Interesting to see that people are gettin into it

Motor should be tons of fun up top with the BC 264's and the Greddy IM. 2871 will spool a little faster with the log-style mani, probably 4k rpm. With the head built, running it out to 8k shouldn't be a problem - look forward to more progress!

THANKS!!

the EastBear Sigma seats are copies that i got as a gift. but the box they came in were marked Sigma, had the sigma logo. so i dunno, i know the actual EastBear seats cost a GRIP. and these were substantially cheaper, but the fit and finish seem really great, when i compared them to a friends fake Brides...sooo i dunno...anyways here are some more pics of them. they are currently mounted to Bride MO rails.
they are kinda dusty.




and here is a pic of my wheel wells, i cleaned it completly and sprayed it down with an underbody coating, and painted the brake line brackes in John deere Green lol


i've got most of the underbody already done, just a few places left to finish, i will try to get pics today or tomorrow, its just too dam hott over here.

its Nissan RTV, and its only on the front cover area.

here is a little wiring project i got going on. im adding another fuse box. that will have 6 fuses. im using it for my fans and an additional things that i will need to add. its getting direct 12V.

had to fab up a little mounting bracket. got it mocked in place so now i can make my bracket out of some sheet metal.

i also need to decide where i am going to mount the relays. currently im using Blue nissan relays, does anyone know the amprage of them?


i have no clue where or how im going to mount theses. i will probably just zip-tie them under the final bracket for the fuse block.

Lol, fuse that 6-circuit box between the battery/alternator/starter wherever u have it plugged in, and the firewall. You'd hate to step on it, crack the plastic, and start a fire - car audio inline fuses (AGC or mini) work great.

As far as the amp ratings on the blue OEM relays, I believe they're 20/30A, so 20A normally closed, 30A normally open. Bosch-style aftermarket relays are cheaper, and available in 30/40 or 40/60 varieties - I'd definitely switch to Bosch-style relay plugs and relays.

the power wire for that fuse block is fused. and so is the battery (relocated to the trunk)

the reason i was using nissan relays is that i have tons of them. do you know the amprage of the brown SPST nissan relay? b/c i have lots of those as well.
THANKS!!
