Always wanted to put up a story about my car, keep an online blog I guess you could say
about my s14. So here's a start.
Here's my pretty 200
and then about 3 weeks ago I had a car accident, my fault.
Was trying to get around a truck going 20km's under the speed limit on main north
and when i got around him, I realised there was backed up traffic that was stopped in the left lane.
Hit a 4x4 ute stopped, at 70km.
Fortunately, I overtook an ambulance 300m before the accident..
I was fine though.
So, was time to achieve a dream, wanted to think positive and look for the benefits
of my dilemmas, time for a series 2 conversion.
Started stripping the car.
I've gotten the fan off, the fusebox and all the wiring out.
Making room for this nosecut that I have purchased from Nissmaz.
Halfcut came from Japan, SILVIA! Yay
Good package deal with these guys, Should be getting thsi delivered this friday, 28th march.
Comes with all the fans, radiator, aircon condensor, front bar and head lights.
Picked up some guards and a bonnet off this champion from gumtree.
As my car sits as of the 28th, wednesday morning.
So all is well, deffinitely happening, I'm missing my car of a babe ):
I've bought a lovely R31 Skyline (auto) ): to get myself around in the mean time.
I have an issue though with my engine, It hasn't been touched although
I think it's came off the passenger engine mount.
It's shifted a bit, I has to replace this plastic bit below the ball of the gear stick and
I notice that when it's in gears 2nd, 4th and reverse, it's hitting the frame of the chassis.
So it's not centered and the stick is closer to the passenger side.
And it has dropped a bit, so i'm assuming I need to replace one of the engine mounts..
Anyways, here's the start, I'll be keeping this going over time.
Hopefully to see the end of the conversion in a few months
