uild thread.

Figured I would start a proper build thread!
My name is Dylan, Im 22, and live in Hamilton, ONTARIO CANADA! I have been a avid car enthusiast since a child, and got into cars "for real" when I was 14 with my first car, a 88 Isuzu
I-Mark LS Turbo. I did a starion front mount, greddy type s, rice exhaust. Then a bunch of hondas, including the first RHD Swapped EF civic in Canada(did it when I was 15 or 16) then alot of escorts, 323's, proteges then miatas, FB RX7's and a S13, galant vr4, talons. Was a miata man for a long time, then bought another s chassis. Basically, I have tried everything with a enthusiast behind it. Now I work part time at a sign shop and work on my own vehicles, friends cars and do lots of part outs of unfinished projects, rust buckets etc to fund my car hobby. Since then, I have gotten into "nicer" cars.
Here are a few. The Silver Silvia was a DD of mine.

My latest build worth mentioning is my 1997 Nissan 240SX, which has gone over many stages in the last year and a half, including 2 engines, paint ideas, aero, suspension, exhaust and interior. This is it , in its most recent "look" Got alot of coverage in local groups, online and some photos in magazines.

I purchased a Silvia Q's with 40k for a build, compiled a ton of parts, then.... sold the car, and all the parts to a friend. That car is nearing completion in my shop right now.

and then...
Flew across Canada to Calgary ALBERTA to buy THIS:
http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/20-1_zpsfbce6389.jpg
Then drove it to BC to visit, then across country back to Ontario in mid april 2012 Should be good right? WRONG. Snap snowstorm/icestorm/closed main artery highways for 3 days, fuck it im going anyways/r comps are for snow! Thunder Bay Ontario. 400hp fully done 180sx was alot of fun!

http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/32_zpsa602d668.jpg
did some skids....

http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/13-1_zps0d8fd430.jpg
then built a zenki for a friend with some spares....
http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/18-2_zps103ce331.jpg


and this for a missle, because at this point "im building the 180"(note, while looking "nice" the car was VERY rusty) http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/17-2_zps441240b8.jpg

then about 20 hard wall taps, and some fun and then some parting out....

http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/33-1_zpsb3fa7ee4.jpg
then this car took its drivetrain (thanks matt!)
http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/9-3_zpsb36303db.jpg

then another event....
http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/14-1_zps99d9c79b.jpg
then another..... Came 1st out of 21 cars! :) Celebratory burnout!
http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/1-4_zps06ecb0f4.jpg



ANDDDD NOW... (SEE EARLY SUMMER 2012)
I decided to rip the 180 apart for good, and build it with the same care and course as I did my kouki! Planning my options for the drivetrain.

My plans with this car is:
make it sick.

I collected a bunch of sweet parts for the SR (see Greddy rad, Blitz oil cooler) but im going a different route. I cant wait to get the body perfect, un shit the quarter panels as previous owner wasnt very good at pulling the quarters. Paint mint like the kouki, and basically make the same car, just a 180.
Ive already lined up a engine+transmission for the build, and purchased a complete JDM 180SX Type X Aero Kit for the car, to replace the replica version select stuff. Im picky as hell and I like the oem front.
Ive also got a complete S15 dash swap which I am also excited to do, along with floor mounted pedals, air jcks and some other cool stuff, including tubbing the front end, and radiusing the frame. Geomaster 2's are also in the cards.

Seeing as I was car-less for the last 2 events, I drove my kouki which I still owned at the time and this super budget SR Coupe. FALL 2012

UPDATE: FALL 2012
Bit the Miata Bug again, purchased a new "parts car" for the 180.
Bought a wild kouki, with a pumped up LS1 Swap. Makes 425hp!
Check out the Eunos http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/2-4_zps68699a17.jpg
Culprit Car for getting me back into miatas....broke my missile and drove friends gf's miata! http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/6-3_zpse88e00b4.jpg
Had to make sure it was good before I took her apart! http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/3-3_zpsb6ae94bb.jpg
Day I got it! http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j405/sharpeimports/5-3_zps41dd8f67.jpg

Drove across canada for the eunos tip

When I got back ...
I started to work on the 180 that has sat in the middle of the shop for 6 months doing nothing! SinceTook the motor out last july and sold almost everything off it, leaving it a shell

Using some high grade steel (see wrecked S13 hood) to make the side panels. Cheap and better stuff then I could buy at the metal mart!

I decided to leave the square edge and keep the tubs very forward so I could have a nice seam on the otherside, and be able to plug weld the edge, versus buttwelding. Plus I figured it would be stronger!

Got this to fix my clutch master to V8 clearance issue... My frien Adam Kube helped with this, due to his motorsport backround and fabrication of openwheel cars. He managed to make me a bolt in pedal for a RHD 180sx, (just clutch) from this Tilton pedal box! Thanks man!

Layed up for a week, told to be in bed for 2wks.

"took it easy"....


This was a few wks ago, just got out AGAIN. (these posts are written a bit backdated, as I didnt have the time to write them up and host the photos, figure it out lol)

Yeah, I'm EMAGDNIM on GTRC and on SONS (But I don't really post much there). This is my main hangout if you would.

Good to hear that you're feeling better. I have no clue what I'm looking at with that X Ray, and my good friend who's a doctor is not around so what was up?

if it helps I'm happy just knowing you mostly post positive things dude
And that your from Canada haha.

But um, I'm in the same boat as Tricky_AB Dylan, what are we looking at, I see a ribcage and your heart, is it a broken collarbone on your right side ?

the fact my lungs are less than symetrical are a bit of a problem. A "pnuthorax" + nasty pnumonia
caused it.
Layed up for a week, told to be in bed for 2wks.... and it happened again. (lung collapse)
I got surgery shortly after lol 2wks of my lung being fucked again(so they thought) that took hrs and hrs and seem to be getting better, looks like I got shot up and shanked though. "you shoulda seen the other guy pal!"



Got my car off to RENE at Centerline Motorsports just before getting into hospital for the second damn time to have my custom made headers made(to help with the clearance on the right side(starter motor, steering shaft)
I threw some janky old subframe in the rear so I could get everything minty while the car was gone.
My friend Mike M. (different mike) took it there for me! thanks man!
Super shit day, super busy and stressful. update in a few days about the aftermath...

It's REALLY simple...

Keep the Red Zeta II's...I might be a bit bias since I have Red Bride seats though so...

Hammer down as I have 14 days to get my car ready for the first drift event! Just got my car back from Centerline motorsports, who were able to produce magic in metal form, for a wicked price, and blow my mind with the level of craftsmanship, attention to detail and just awesomeness. Thanks guys!

Heres a photo before I had them coated. Centerline has the ability to have it done at my behalf, so here they are before they got ceramic coated!

I also have worked a ton on my eunos while the 180 was away.
Stripped the car for colour change, and bought a southern black miata for fresh black panels to paint vs changing the yellow ones. Will be painting the car first sans the black parts, then paint them after. Looking forward to its completion aswell.

this is Jamel btw

sharpe_corners
05-16-2013, 07:57 AM
Yes it is RHD.

I needed the headers custom because of that reason alone, however, I was unhappy with aftermarket offerings that hang 2 inches past the damn frame. The car will be low, I dont want to rip my exhaust off.

Hit a huge snag using the "coveted" ERA-1 Knuckles. Balljoints wont even fit, bushings are 2mm too wide, and to top it off, era-1 doesnt care. Anyone had issues like this? Im going to have to have a machine shop retaper them, big bucks.

Do you have S14 Ball joints? Era-1's (like the Driftworks they copied) require S14 ball joint taper.
