So I picked up this diamond in the rough yesterday in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. October 30, 2013


Encountered a little set back, 127kms into the trip back, a flat tire. Called up Mom squad, and 4 hours later, back on the road. 9 hours behind schedule, she now resides in my garage.


Anyway, back to more pics of the poor girl













And it begins... striping plastidip off the car




Current mods:
Carbon fibre "Spoon" Hood, weighs nothing compared to my Seibon
Carbon fibre Spoon, or Spoon style mirrors
Carbon fibre Spoon, or Spoon style duckbill
Carbon fibre rear lower tailgate
8.8lb Flywheel
Stage 3 Clutch
B20B Engine Swap
B16 Tranny with LSD
Mugen Rad cap
Unknown Brand front and rear strut bars
7pt Bolt in Roll Cage
Trust Shift Knob
Momo Steering wheel
Mugen Coilovers
Password:JDM Cross drilled Rotors - Not installed
Unknown brand header
Mega huge fart can on the car
GReddy Evo axle back, not on the car
Injen Cold Air Intake
Mugen rep front lip

Probably find more as I tear down the car

Plans for the car:
Restore to presentable condition
Remove any, and all aftermarket wiring, switches, buttons, and gauges
Move improperly mounted, and non sealed battery back into the engine bay
Replace USDM headlight and corner lights with OEM JDM pieces (car was backed into in a parking lot, and broke the left side headlight and corner light)
Buy new thin side moldings
Replace all old, worn trim and weather stripping
Remove all decals
Fix all wiring issues

      How does the interior look? From the pics, it looks so mint. Nice purchase.

                                  And the strip down process begins...

                                  Started with the back, what a mess of wiring






                                  Tip to everyone, this is not the proper way of fixing wiring. Butt connectors = ghetto


                                  Looks like a snake pit


                                  Wrong size bolts in the spoiler




                                  Took off the front bumper for a little surprise. Bottom rad support is chicken **** welded on, barely hanging on. Guy said it was in a minor parking lot hit, which broke the headlight and bent the fender... Never mentioned this




                                  Not the proper way to run wiring to relocate your battery. Was close to a whole roll of white electrical tape on there. Notice the ghetto a/c block off.


                                  Front fenders and hood removed


                                  Rear is back to normal

                                    And the tear down begins.


                                    Pulling the motor the unsafe way




                                    Got taking out the dash down to a 15 minute job already




                                    Cleaning out the engine bay




                                    Dirty wheel wells


                                    Coilover that came on the car, was told they were Mugens, but...


                                    They're OHLINS!!!


                                    Plastidip is by far the worst stuff I've ever dealt with, in thin coats anyway






                                    Inside stripped, and unfortunately plastidipped as well :/




                                    Other side of the car


                                    Bare shell


                                    Studs on the fire wall ground off and started to clean it up a bit


                                    No more plastidip <3










                                    Something missing?


                                    Its the gas tank!


                                    Rear trail arms broken down to get ready for powder coating and rebuilding


                                    And picked up another set of rota's
