s14 Nicks Aussie S14 Clean build

Hi all!


I am not really good at introductions, so bare with me! My name is Nick, i am 20 and live in a little suburb called Wollongong, an hour south of Sydney, Australia.

I bought this S14 May from a friend. He had it in a garage stored for 11 years. The reason why the car was put away is because somebody keyed the front end, both guards were primed. The first owner took the bonnet off and lend it against a wall and bent the bottom edges of the bonnet, so that got replaced.

When he offered it to me, i couldn't help myself. Dates were set and the drive began. There was only 1 issue... he lives over 12 hours away. That wasn't going to stop me for a clean, unmolested car with NO rust or accident history (not including the keying) whatsoever. I love country cars.

Potato Cam, but you get the point!

The vision...

I am keeping this car's chassis completely Untouched, no cuts for a FMIC, no guards rolled for wheels, No dirty holes for gauges, 100% completely Unmolested.

I am bare metal respraying the car, whilst having the whole car PDR (Paintless dent removed). I done 5 years of Panel beating so this is not a big challenge for me.

But... standard body, with a twist? I have bought a whole heap of cool things to go on which I think will make it look absolutely stunning.

I absolutely love the OEM option parts for this series. I follow the Yahoo Japan auctions very closely so the things like the rear window shades, glove box 'cool box', Navan seats ETC ETC will be mine eventually, its only a matter of time... and funds.
