Not as much progress as i hoped but its progress.

 

After thinking long time about raw alloy look or rough texture black look for the pipes decided on stealth black look.

Wired the starter in

Plugged in the s15 dash for some instrumentation, all the security systems so it lets me start the engine, and wired in the fuel pump, fitted radiator.

Put some fresh bp98

 

Lets see what happens after 4 yrs of sleeping. See if this way is better.

Bit of a delay with woohoo as i wasnt sure if it actualy started or something grinding or about to catch on fire.  :P

 

Short clip while it was warming up. Straight of front pipe no exhaust. Exhaust is in transit from Japan at the moment.

After warm up annoying the neighbours. Payback for them smashing the golf balls into the fence all afternoon.

Well mechanicaly its alive and should drive. But theres lots of modifications to wiring now. Adapting s15 wiring to 180sx gear like dash, ac, power windows, headlight retractors,air bag,etc.....

 

Still to bleed the brakes, sort out the abs warning light, do something about the 4wd stance and finaly body work. lots of work still.

:o
