Instead of listing all the B.S. excuses as to why the bodywork is incomplete I’m living proof that if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.
I’ve been looking at the 180SX brochures for a while now trying to find certain parts and accessories that I deemed a must-have simply because I find it challenging and it takes me out of my comfort zone into some unfamiliar territory with this restoration.
This car has been sitting in the same patch of grass since I first spotted it in 2012, who knows how long before then. The owner wanted a little too much for it so I walked away.
Interchangeable parts are parts that are, for practical purposes, identical. They are made to specifications that ensure that they are so nearly identical that they will fit into any assembly of the same type without any custom fitting.
Did I jump the gun on announcing the S13 dash buttons? Well, I have some good news, some bad news and more good news.
Before the pearl S13 there was a pearl S14. At the time, I tried to convince myself to do a Navan build because no clean hatchbacks within my price range existed. The car was originally my father’s and when he lost interest, I gladly took it off his hands.
When I wasn’t going to monster truck shows and drag races with my dad, I was building legos, model cars and planes while he restored old Chevys.
My motives with this blog are simply to document my projects and pass on what I learn to anyone who takes the time to read about them. The store that may or may not be active on this blog is a result of requests I’ve received for certain items I’ve fabricated or designed for my projects.
