LowLevel S13 240SX Build

Hi guys,

My name is Cimon, and I'm from Montreal, Quebec. I'm French, so don't worry if sometimes I make some little mistakes in the text

Here's my IG: @cimonbrouillette

Pretty excited to finally get in the S-Chassis family. On January 4th, I've bought my S13 as my new build for '15 season.

Hard to find some clean ones up here in Canada, not rusted & beaten as hell.

Good thing I've jumped on a deal, low mileage & very great condition '89 240SX HB.



That's how I've started this crazy journey. You'll love this thread, as I always take HD pictures during the build.



First week. First Zilvia night searches & PayPal abuses.
Found my 180SX Kouki Front End & Chuki Sideskirts. Kinda rough condition but worth the work for the price I've paid them.



First buildup selfie. I've dreamed for years to do a S13. Finally.



Always loved the way Kouki front bumpers looked with the license plate nicely cutted.





Finally got them ready for paint. Everything got primed to make place and work on the car! Looks so clean! Pretty excited



2 days later, I've received another delivery. An exciting one: Suspension & arms. Hell yes!





Made a bit of room in the front, relocated harness in case too.



And that's how it temporarily sits on the new wheel set, straight from VR Wheels. Incredible customer service, fast answers & shipping! Awesome.



As I want to make this build in the classic mood, I'll keep the front OE fenders & mod them to fit these. 50mm OverFenders for the rear are sitting patiently in the basement.

The time we all get excited.











Everything was cleaned then perfectly glued inside & tomorrow we are finalizing with a body sealant to do a clean & durable job.

Had to replace my front fenders after removing them/found more rust than I thought. Found those OE ones & stripped them to start from scratch!



Rear quarter panels signals shaved

Tires are mounted! Falken Azenis FK453 aren't easy! Hard/thick walls
18x9.5 (215-35)
18x11 (245-40)





Can't wait to put 'em back tomorrow on the car and see what we have to adjust!

Forgot to post this last weekend, but I've finally found what will suit the rear end! I was searching mainly OE parts, but the fact that it wasn't as aggressive as the rest of the car was bugging me.
Jumped on a deal up here in Quebec. Came with this QT lol

Like I promised, here are some pics of today's test fit w/ tires. So happy!









No adjustment have been done at all, so I'm very impressed. Fitment will be really on-point with some minor fender work in the front, and in the rear w/ over fenders i'll probably need some 15-20mm spacers to get the exact same fitment all around.

Hopefully the PBM coilovers w/ stock springs (10k/8k) will be stiff enough. If not, I'll consider buying some Swift springs probably.

To be continued!
