Haven't decided yet, thinking possibly a silver color, just not sure what looks good with the color of the car.

I suggest the engine bay to be the same color as the exterior. everything looks good and fresh then and matches.

I know a bunch of people that hate their black engine bays on green/white cars. looks like you have no room.

great build so far though! love the tub's

I didn't have time to finish the engine bay and prep for paint because the tubs took a little longer then expected. If i had had the bay all done and sanded I probably would have had them paint the bay the same color. I doubt I'll go with black, a dark silver is high on my list though, helps keep the engine bay brighter plus, with my attempt at a wire tuck it should look nice and clean.

Oh yeah and I wanted to see what some MB Battles would look like on my car so I had a friend photoshop some on it.


I think I like it, minus the look of the kit. Won't be using this kit anymore though because I sold it.

Thanks, no I ordered a few from FRSPORTS and the rest from Enjuku. Got the coils brand new from a fellow member on here for just a little over a grand shipped also. I think I came across the rndauto deal maybe a week after I purchased all mine.

Not much of an update but I got some pics that I can throw up.

Since my car his been out to paint for the last while I really had nothing to do except piddly stuff on the motor.

Drilled out and replaced the exhaust stud that broke off in the head.



Cleaned it up some and started putting it back together.



Finally figured out what I was all going to need for my oil cooler setup so I got that all ordered. All Earls -10 Lines and Fittings, with a in line thermostat, relocation filter mount and Tomei block adapter. Pretty much a copy of the same system that Khilgers ran. Looking forward to putting all that together





And finally got a chance to go see how my car is coming along at the body shop. Glad to see that spoiler gone.



Got a stockpile of new parts just waiting for the car to get back so I can get back to working on it.



Also my time is being consumed trying to get my project daily up and running for the summer so I don't have to drive the s14 all the time.

Well nothing amazing here but for those of you with yellowing and foggy headlights might be interested in this. Still waiting for my car to come back from paint so I figured I would give this a shot.

Tried this Mequiar's Product seems to have work pretty good, included a 1000 grit sanding pad and a 3000 grit sanding pad along with the polish and UV protectant. I guess I will see how it lasts.



This is how they compared during.



After





Turned out pretty decent in my opinion and worth a shot if yours is yellowing and foggy also.

Thanks, will move along a lot faster when I get it back from paint and if my s13 side project doesn't take up to much of my time also.

As for the oil cooler it is 8 in. x 11 in. x 1 1/2 in wasn't sure if it was going to be to big, but after discussing with summit and a few others I decided upon it.

Here is a link to it

As this is a build thread, here is some more progress on the s13 that I picked up a couple months back. Pretty sure I've tracked down all the last parts I needed to get it moving. Just have to swap a few things out to delete the power steering pump and run just a single belt.



Chris filling in the trunk holes from the spoiler




Make shift paint booth






Just primed some so far, should have it done being painted by this coming weekend.





Also installed an ACT 6pad sprung clutch on the SR, also got it ready to be dropped back in.




Oh, and I also finally got my car back from paint!!!

Made some good progress this weekend so far and thought I would throw up a few pics.

Tomei Oil Block adapter installed


Dropped the motor back in so I can finish my wiring, route and install the oil cooler setup and also cut and build my intercooler/intake piping, and also mount any of my brackets before the bay gets painted. That way I don't have to mess around with anything just straight drop the motor in and hook it up.







Still trying to figure out how to route my intake piping/ MAF


Also got the oil cooler installed.











Ordered some wire loom from Waytek, stuff is pretty awesome.









Thinks that's about all for today, I'll see what happens tomorrow.

Few more pics from Sunday

Got my harness done, did not shorten it but am thinking about doing that. Not sure yet.






And the Intake and Hot Pipe are snaked around the tub as well, took a bit of work but we got it figured out.







Then just gotta make mounts for the power steering reservoir, oil pressure gauge, fuel filter, and also make some new brake lines. Then motor comes back out, paint the bay and hopefully put everything back in a hope that it fires back up.

Perhaps a dumb question but why didn't you paint the s14 yourself aswell?
Seems like you have the space and tools required to do so.

Good question, Back when I purchased the car in the Fall of 2010 the most I had worked on a car was changing the oil, changing brakes, and doing small electrical wiring for a radio. Not to skilled with much of anything. I've advanced a little bit now.

I use to drive an 88 s-10 before I got interested in drifting.




Also since my s14 was painted the first time I built this car up a bit from a bare shell and ended up selling it to a friend during the summer last year.





And a link to that build thread D-Town :: View topic - S13 Hatch Drift Car Project

Since I hadn't done any painting before I had someone else paint it. Unfortunately there was a manufactures defect in the paint that caused it to fade so my car got a free respray paid for by the paint supplier. If the car where needed to be painted again, it would just be painted by my friend and I.
