Looks really good...but you have more $$$ in seats than I have in my whole car...so yeah, I think we live on different budgets.

Thanks guys. Some may not agree with the modifications/prices but thats what makes each person and datto unique:).

YELLOWCAR- Front seats were ordered through my friends shop. Since they are made to order in japan it usually takes 2-3months(including shipping time). heres a link;

Also, the back seats and door pannels were custom upholstered with authentic bride material throughout.

I'm looking as some of the engine goodies that you've bought for your project (like your oversized intake manifold) Consider yourself lucky that you can buy such things. I've needed to fab and/or machine just about everything for my project (including the manifold), since I'm using the antiquated, boat anchor, tried and proven L-series motor. I know, there’s no comparison to the technology of ten to 15 years ago (the SR motors), but it's definitely been a labor of love.
Keep us posted on the mechanical side. Are you doing the work yourself, or is it being farmed out?

All work is being done by myself. I am a pretty mechanical person..and take more pride in doing things(that is within my ability) myself. I cant
weld for crap..so little things that I need welded I have my friend help me on. Nor am I a bodywork expert so I left that to the pros. Everything else;
motor, diff, axles, interior, electrical, etc I am doing. I like the l-series as they can be a very good power plant while being extremely reliable.
But the idea behind this build was going "all out" which includes every part from motor to interior. I have a few more goodies to post pretty soon. This car is
worse then a drug addiction as I am spending every penny on it lol.

thats a true statement defdes!! But yeah mesojdm, looking good. I would definatly consider that all out. i am glad it won't be one of those cars you see in magazines that the person just wrote a blank check to a shop and said here ya go. Its always feels better when you have your blood sweat, tears (& cash) in YOUR car.

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!






Picked the car up form paint today. It better then I could think of AND More! I am stoaked! These are just some pics in the garage but it really does not do the paint justice. In the sunlight it shows the metallic ALOT more and the paint just has alot of depth to it! At different angles the paint has a purple hint to it...i LOVE IT. Paint was a 2005 nissan/infinity color (g35 and other cars) I will get alot more pics updated now I have the car and can work on it. Later!

Don't they always look great in the fresh, wet look?
And that fresh paint smell that won't go away for weeks??
I've been here a few times myself, what a great place to be. You just want to jump in and start bolting it together so you can ride.
Looks great, keep us posted.

Fuel rail is hitting the hood. AHHHH. My valve cover is about 1/4-1/2" from the hood. The fuel rail is about 1" to high. Any suggestions would be great. Different fuel rail? Different injectors? Speak up!

Painless fusebox, sr wire harness, fuel pump relays, ignitor chip all tucked nicely into place. When the dash is on its hard to see it unless you look hard form underneath.

More room then I thought for the radiator. Going to get the crank pully machines off isince I have done away with A/c and P/S..which will make more clearence.
Image


Body harness and Motor harness hid away becasue I want my engine bay CLEANNNNN. Motor harness will be under the intake manifold, body harness will be off the the very left hidden.
