Ive wanted to build a 180sx for a while now and after my UK s13 died of the dreaded rott box virus and engine breathed pretty badly i decided there wernt a better time to do it.
It starts like this, Picked up a 96 kouki 180 shell from Adam on here, was a pretty clean shell to start with, had a bit of rust on it but soon cut that out and made sure its was rust free as possible.
This is how it was when i started:
Then stripped everything that was left in the engine bay to prep and paint it, also getting rid of any unwanted brackets:
Paint goes on and engine bay is then ready to get the engine fitted an running:
Then off to TR Racing so i can fit all the mechanicals and get it running and driving:
