Jono's 89 CA18DE Two Tone Aero

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, back with a build thread that will be updated and an account which I wont loose access to.....

 

Anywho... I bought my S13 back in March 2011.

She's a 1989 Seafoam Green Two Tone S13 Coupe. I work on a minimum wage (below $13.00) lol so money is hard to come by, but it's the hard working hours of slaving away in some crap pizza shop that has really made me appreciate the little yet tastefull changes I have made over the year and a bit. I tend to look at my car as form > function, I bought the car for its aesthetics and that's how I planned to keep it. Engine mods arnt really a thing im going for until I'm off my p's as I see building up a N/A motor a waste of time, especially on a CA and would rather wait 2 years to drop an RB25DET in :)

 

Mods Completed:

Rota Grid's 17x9 +12

Nissan Aero Side Skirts

Nissan Aero Front Bar w grills

Clear Indicators

Clear Parkers

Crystal Tail Lights

Roof Wing

 

To do:

COILOVERS

Nissan Aero pods

S14 Kouki Wing

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here she is the day I bought her

So popped my cherry on Wednesday night on the way to an SAU meet to take photos for ZeroClearance... Got my first defect. It was a minor for having wheels that petruded outside my guards, no thrid brakelight and a sticker within my wipers movement.

She's cleared now (as of today) and had to throw back on the good ole stockies...

 

It was funny though, the first thing they told me to do, without even mentioning the wheels.. was to pop the hood.. They must have hoped I had a worked SR20 DET in there.... to bad it was a small stock as a rock, CA18DE lol

Yeh Ill chuck some shots up, it's stock interior man, I love the silvia steering wheel, so I wouldnt change it, the only thing I will change are the seats and put some useful guages in there.

lmao, I wasnt running crazy stretch only 215's on 9's but, it got flat and then i pumped it up again (dead flat almost) and that causes the sidewalls to weaken and then bam, pop and tear lol, just keep an eye on your psi, everytime u fuel up, give em a glance :)

The dodgey vents were on the bar when I bought it, don't know why anybody would even think about cutting into an original aero bar.. but he did, I think they were some kind of quick release clips to remove the front bar for the trailor then to chuck them back on again...

Nigel's S13 was the obvious inspiration for the looks of this car, without him, this would have probably looked like some old beat up pig. It;s not to say that this exact style is Nigels though, considering if you hop on Zilvia's Two Tone Preservation society's page then you will see it's super common combo. But his car showd me that all I need is to stick to the saying KISS... Keep It Simple Stupid.

-Ran even wider tyres and chewed into them

-Sold my Rota Grid's

-Jumped on the genuine band wagon and bought some classic SSR Formula and Hart R (super rare) wheels.

In the coming weeks I plan on
