    SO!... I bought a 1997 180sx. It looked like this.

    DSC02698.

    Then I changed it so it was manual, and I put a seat in it so I could go faster around corners and a steering wheel and a gearknob.

    interior1.

    Then I found a few bits I was missing and bought some wheels.

    Then I put everything on

    dsc_5007_resize.

    dsc_4939_resize.

    side.


    And now it's done. Last weekend I drove it down to Taupo listening to Phil Collins most of the way and I filmed some of my friends drifting:

    Nicad7: Yep RPS13, It's actually a Spec S model (SR20DE) but don't tell anyone. I don't like overcomplicating stuff. It's not a drift car. It doesn't need 10000000hp and 900 adjustable arms. I daily drive it also.

    Here's a BIG picture, excuse the front offset, was running HUGE spacers when I took it:

    Haha. I highly doubt it.

    Purple/Blue 180 is Adam from C's Garage.
    Brown 86 is F20C powered.

    It was a great day for sure.

    This project is all about two words - "simple" and "clean". What's not to like about it? :)

    Loved the vid. Isn't that white FC running a 1JZ? It definetely doesn't sound like a rotary engine...
