hi everyone, I need some advices on my friends Varietta. The roof won´t open, there´s just a flashing roof light when pressing the switch. Are there any fuses to check? Any sensors? Where can I find them? Maybe a wiring diagram? Thanks in advance! Benne
Hey Everyone, New to the forum recently acquired a 1988 S13 Convertible. CA18DET Bought it in pretty bad condition (Sad to see how people mistreat the cars) The Head Gasket was gone and the Oil Drip lines above the cams were blocked, Cams and Rocker Arms were well gone. The Interior was damaged all the trim was sun faded, and the dash looked like it had been destroyed by a cat. (Grrrr Cats) The drop top itself looks like it was on the wrong side of a prison shanking. Put a lot of time into it: Rebuilt the engine myself, just redone the CA, plan on going an SR later down the track. Got a new dash and redone the trimming with originals of a friends wrecked s13. Just Trying to Source a New drop top. Not going very well with it. LOL Some things about the car: Its got shaved door handles (The mechanism to open them is stuffed so opening the door is a bit hard, haha ) 17 inch Gram Lights. 180sx Front Conversion Vertex Mirrors And What I assume to be a Vertex Body Kit S15 Front seats A custom aqua green paint , I'll get it changed eventually. (Black to match my R6, then they can be friends in my garage, my R6 is racist ) Would really like to chat with other people who own the Convertibles to see what they've done. Plan on having this car for quite a while. Gotta lot more work I need to do and ideas are always good. Any questions hit me up. Cheers Guys, K
Thought I'd start up a build thread to track the progress of my new project car as i didn't really manage too with my first project. Anyway old project turned out like this; SR20det drift shitter with all your basic mods to make ~300hp and turn a tyre in anger. I've had the car near on 5 years but its probably only seen a years worth of actual road/track use so i have grown bored of it. **** Enter the new rig. It popped up on a local forum, one owner since being imported into Aus and very well priced. It Looked quite clean and I had always wanted to own a convertible. I went for an inspection, car was not as clean as I had hoped but i saw it had huge potential and after I turned on the ignition... it was hard to say no! And so the new project begins... Current plans are some basic maintenance/mods it requires to be a good healthy street/track car. However, once these issues are sorted the car will be getting baller rims, stance, custom half cage, a decent 350-400hp highmount setup and all the usual support mods a drift car requires. Mods list as of when i bought it is; Engine Modifications RB26DETT MoTeC M8 + ignition expander BNR34 GTR twin turbos (steel-wheel) Bar/plate FMIC Trust Grex 1.2mm headgasket Trust Grex adjustable cam-gears Trust oil filter relocator Trust Type-S bov Nismo engine mounts Bosch 040 fuel pump (brand new) Custom baffled sump Nismo thermostat R32GTST radiator Twin 10” thermo fans Twin K&N pod filters 3BAR MAP sensor Exterior Modifications BN Sports front bar BN Sports side skirts M-Sports front guards Vertex rear bar Widened rear guards Despoilered Resprayed in phantom black Suspension and Wheels Modifications Rear strut-brace Nismo twin plate sprung centre clutch Nismo lightened flywheel R33GTST 5-speed gearbox Custom one-piece tailshaft Nismo gearbox mount R32 GTST LSD R32 GTR front brakes R33 GTST rear brakes CNC billet hubs (front) R33 GTST axles/hubs (rear) 18" Starcorp Kaotik rims with 225/40/18 (front) & 255/35/18 (rear) (90%+ tread all-round) pic on from the day i picked it up... engine bay... How it currently sits since chucking in my coilovers and Bride seats (yes car will eventually be lower but with it currently regularly being jacked up for mechanical work this is a more practical height).
