It has been a experience owning imports! A couple of years back I purchased a 33 4door to do something a little different, back then know one really owned 33 4doors and i had never really seen any nice ones not even on google. I thought I could build something pretty cool seeing as I had a relatively blank canvas with not influence from other builds. I found my inspiration from any car that appealed to myself and tried to see if could apply it to the 4door. The thing is, my taste was always evolving.. Before I dedicate this thread to my 4doors THE 180SX Purchased this car with with no import knowledge and no friends into imports. I new what I wanted and did the whole impulse buy, I really wanted a s13.. oh well. Motor cracked a bore in the first 2 weeks, after letting it sit for a while I decided to do full forged build cams blah blah blah. Paid AVO turboworld 10k cash upfront just for the built motor and cams alone. They were bed wetters promising the world and then taking 1year to build an sr20det LOL (laughing at my own stupidity; in my defense friends of friends type of thing) and i the end refusing to give receipts for anything. Whilst waiting for a year for the motor to be finished, I purchased heaps of shit, new gearboxes, new wheels, 3071, braided line, sump, suspension components etc. etc. Once I got the car back I hated it because of AVO. I did some more mods to it then sold it on run in, having never drifted it. 3 years bye bye... BRING IN THE GIMP (lesson learnt- build smart) For the aforementioned reasons I ended up with this My first mod was 100,000km service and roof racks for the snow season! mint! After a while of daily enjoyment I started with the mods to build the car my way. mods list that took place before my first drift day Summert Matsuri 2012, some cosmetic for daily life some for drift. -Shimmed diff -loom over strut tower -power fc -highflow turbo -strut brace -rear camber arms -castor rods -BC coils -replaced front mount with return flow front mount -shimmed diff -bought some xxr for skids rims -relined with black carpet and also did parcel shelf -dashmat -bucket seat -wool seat covers to hide said bucket seat -Fuel pump -Exhaust -blitz I colour -side skirts -JDI knuckles and longer tierods (only because got offered them really really cheap) -raise bonnet -Frush gaskets! Not the most impressive list but for a daily/drift car the balance of both worlds was perfect. Fake wheels so I didnt care about damaging them, stock engine bay, wool seat covers to hide the bucket seat from the Police. No defect in over 2 years of driving daily.f**k yeah This brings back memories, driving to Matsuri. Barney had 100k plus work tow rig with Tins car on the trailer. Very happy This is about the only real picture I got when I was on the track...f**k yeah
