  1. So I decided it was time to do a build thread for my project 180sx, hoping it helps motivate me to pull my finger out and get things going. Having wife and 2 young kids doesn't leave me much time though. So about 2 years ago snapped up an unregistered 1989 CA18DET powered 180sx that needed a bit of work, suits me fine as being unregistered means I can take my time to build it how I want it. Was basically ok, came with side skirts, rear bar, cat back exhaust and front mount, some delightful soul had ripped out the sunroof to steal the stereo from the previous owner. Plan for the build is to build a good weekend car, grip setup, for street and hopefully will make it to a track day as I have never done that and would really like to. Repaired some things, so far: - Replaced Sunroof - Replaced corroded as f&*! rear wiper motor - replaced melted coolant overflow bottle with new gktech one Did a bit of research and need to toss the rims, they need spacers to fit so not legal in NSW. Located some Z32 calipers for the front, rebuilt them myself, cleaned them up and reprayed them. (dirty vs clean caliper) Resprayed Purchased HEL brake lines, slotted rotors and Project Mu pads, bigger BMC (yet to be installed, got to get off my lazy ass and replace seals in BMC) Purchased some suspension goodies to go on, only fitted these so far: Got some new MCA Blue Coilovers waiting to go on (they are a sexy bit of kit). Planned to do list: - get BMC seals replaced and fit brakes and suspension - repair/get help repairing rust - clean up interior, install gauges (have boost and wideband O2 gauges), new front seats, get rear seats retrimmed, replace carpet - respray - not sure if I am going to attempt this or pay someone, probably pay someone as it will likely look rubbish if I do it considering I have zero experience in respraying a car - then fun bit - rebuild and upgrade motor, turbo, better cooling and intercooler setup. decided on most parts except turbo, looking at T28 sized but not sure between Hypergear ATR28SS1.5, Precision 5130 or Garret GTX2863R. Might change later as new models come out but that is the short list. Will try and post more soon
