    * Car I was going to buy to replace this has fallen through so going to get this finished - If anyone’s seriously interested get in touch as I could be persuaded to part with, or it may be back up for sale in a few months/

    I really don't want to sell but I'm just not using it and I've got zero free time to finish what I started improving after I decided I couldn't let it go in June last year. I really wanted to use it for track days but family and work commitments are making it impossible.

    Reasons it's listed as a project-
    1. The car did have a slight issue when I last did a drift day on a surprisingly hot Feb day in 2019, it had what felt like a miss fire after a few laps of the big track at Santa Pod, I would come off track and the issue was gone as soon as the car was rested for a few mins and it didn't occur on the smaller tracks all day. I have spoken at length with Gregg at Pro Tuner about this and it's 99% just a safety cut in the ECU due to coolant temp creeping up a little, the car never showed high temps on the stock gauge on the dash and certainly didn't boil over or anything like that. Since this happened I have gone back to a viscous fan and cowl (from 14" electric) and have not been able to get this issue to happen again. Not been drifting though so didn't want to not mention it just in case.
    2. Breaks need bleeding after refitting the R33 calipers after a full refurb (By Bigg Red Ltd).
    3. Off side rear sill is a bit soft (usual S13 spot). Jay Walker checked the car over for a potential buyer back in June and gave it a positive review. It's certainly not rotten and has been garaged since imported basically.
    4. Exhaust may need refitting. Hoping to get on to this though.
    *Car will need trailering due and exhaust but I will try and sort so it could be driven to it's new home.
    '92 180sx - CA car convert to SR in Japan. Originally imported and built by Paul (smokey) Smith in '06
    I bought the car off the guy who had from Paul in early '08 and I sold it in '09, I’d spent a lot of money improving it but got out on track a fair bit and had a top 16 in the 2008 BDC British Open, I absolutely loved it. I was unfortunately forced to sell to afford my first house and was gutted to see the car go.
    I bought the car back from the guy I sold it to in '17 and he'd hardly used it and only done just a few hundred km's, basically he'd dry stored it for me for 8 years. I really couldn’t believe my luck getting my car back in the same condition I’d sold it.

    I've had the car back a couple of years and spent a fair bit on it at ProTuner on a custom engine wiring loom, R8 coils, ECU, and mapping.

    MOT - 11th July 2020
    Car has switchable boost and is running around 360bhp on high boost.
    Good condition but obviously it’s a drift car not a show car. Other than the sill there's little bubble of rust on the rear arch but nothing major, and it has a small dent on the nearside rear but again nothing major. Dash has holes from old gauges and a couple cracks.
    Fire extenguisher and electric cot off could do with new pull cables. Only other negative is there's no heater matrix in the car, so no demist etc, little bit inconvenient if you want it as a daily, but the electric windows both work.
    Basically in the last 10 years this car has done one Santa Pod practice day and a hand full of road miles. It has only done around 4000km since imported in ’06. It'll make a great comp car for some lucky sole.

    Looking for around £7500. Not interested in any PX sorry.
    Please note this car will not be sold until the full agreed figure or a large none refundable depost is received. #dontbeadick
