    Las Vegas EUGENE's LS1

    Here is my new 2010 S13 sr20 build.

    Well, I got some extra time I will be spending at home, so I decided to get a new shell and start over. My old shell was great but there is things I want to do different on the new one. Here is some pictures of my start:

    while the dimples arent something i care about as much as everyone else on here, i like the placement of the p/s reservoir! if you have time and a tig, it would be cool to see a custom reservoir (you could make it larger if it fit the space in that corner)
    [/quote]

    Changed the shape of that gusset so now the p/s reservoir will go right in there and yes custom one will be cool.

    [​IMG]

    plus closed all the extra holes and some gussets on the frame rails to firewall

    [​IMG]

    Ok on wed I prepped the engine bay and got the primer

    Did some work today: welded aluminum air duck for my intercooler (also the air duck holds my front bumper) , made a front bash bar and mounted oil cooler.

    Here is some shit I've done today: pre fitted my pop up's , they will always stay up I think it looks sick.... on a hatch :p and got my rear brace with a spot to jack up the car...... since the car will be super low and jack wont slide under my bumper ( my old car was like that I always had a hard time lifting it during tire changing and the kit was not as low as this one )

    Car is a lower and damn its scraping everything lol love it....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So on my old car when I am drifting and suspension going up and down front tire rubs off fiberglass fender... so maybe this will help

    [​IMG]

    got aluminum plate traced and cut to fit perfect and then bent a little lip where tire will rub instead cutting into the fender. that will be protecting my nice D-max fenders lol I hope

    [​IMG]

    Fits nice and tight
