Picked up a clean 24O build

Hey Zilvia! Pretty new to posting in this forum so hopefully I dont get bashed on lol, anyways my name is Algin im 17, grew up around cars since like forever haha especially being around my cousins, this was during the early 2OOO'S when hondas were like really popular (They still are) haha. I still have interest in hondas, its just that to me, I feel like they are to common and the area where I live, the possibilites of it being stolen are very high( where arent they now a days). Well I picked up into 24O's around the time I was going into middle school, I was introduced into drifting and all of that, but to me it wasn't the drifting. It was more of the styling that was different compared to hondas. But yea that kind of a summary of my story lol. Well with the money I saved up i decided it was time for me to pick up a 24O, ended up finding a clean s13 forsale. Hit up the guy and decided to check it out. Car was clean and ended up taking it home!






Looking over the car as it was finally home, the car seemed to have a oil leak, while checking over other places, I found that the was coming from under the crankshaft pulley, I was pretty sure it was the front main seal. A trip to the dealer was no biggie picking up the seal along with the other stuff that needed to be replaced!



Pulling stuff out to get access to the seal



Leak ended up being fixed and drove the car! Here is a pic next to my daily



As I got to save a little bit more money, I picked up some DMAX coilovers from GTR-GARAGE! At first i was kind of skeptical ordering from japan cause I never had any experience ordering from Japan. Kunio and his staff are great! They awnsered all my questions and at the end of the day they were great! Took about 1 month for my coils to get to my doorstep ( while on backorder), I recommend GTR Garage 100% percent!





Was free on a Saturday and decided to get to work!

Old Shocks:


Coilovers Installed:



While I was at it, replaced my cracked dash with an uncracked one (currently have no pics of that job) and since dash was out, re-dyed my carpet black



Also picked up some new rims! Cant go wrong with grenades! Thanks @saturdaynightxspecial! and my buddy in the picture lmao dont mind him


Shoutout to buddy also for building a cool Z! Its getting there! if yall wanna follow his build, his ig: @bambambilla


Car next to my dad's daily and qwerth from this forum



as of right now that's what has been done to the car,only owned the car for 3 months lol but currently working on my 5 lug conversion!

picked up some rotors as of right now


If this threads ends up being approved will update this as I go!

nice start, I've only had one 240sx. It was a 93 Hatch (sold it tho), and my daily is also a 4runner. Awesome, can't wait to see more done. very clean coupe.

getting the car ready for the conversion



did everything today but with the amount of sunlight thats out for daylight saving, only got to finish the front today, will get back to it tomorrow



still need to lower the front more and needs camber, maxed out with 1 collar. going to remove the last one and see how it goes, other than that thanks for @querth for letting me borrow his rims while in exchange for my grenades lol

so ended up finishing the 5lug. ended up liking how the rears turned out, but the front can use some work.









so while driving the car around while i was enjoying it my car temperature's were rising. At first i thought it was nothing but when i was coming home, the car was just too hot to even drive. i had to call up some of my buddies to help me. so what we did was like every 2 blocks, we would stop for my car to cool down. In the end my car made it home. This all reminded me of that scene in fast and the furious shen dom open'd the hood of brians car and smoke came out cause thats exactly what was happening to my car lol smoke. but yea problem after problem ): back to the drawing bored


Me thinking about what the fuck is wrong lmao





Then my homies came to the rescue lol
