    Hi, my name is Jacob, and I'm a Silviaholic.

    It's a 1989 Nissan 180SX.

    Reason for buying this is so I can finally hit the track and have a RWD daily again.

    Engine Modifications:

    - Auto CA>Manual SR conversion
    - Some sort of Hydrid intercooler setup
    - Some sort of S/S turbo-back exhaust
    - Some sheetty short shifter kit

    Exterior Modifications:

    - sheetty side mirrors
    - sheetty chrome taillights
    - sheetty chrome rims

    Interior Modifications:

    - sheetty worn MOMO steering wheel
    - Some sheetty stereo

    Suspension and Wheels Modifications:

    - Some sort of lowered springs

    Planned Modifications:

    - Fix up the whole interior
    - Respray bonnet and A-pillars
    - Install my front/dump combo from the other car, since that can't be used anymore. Should lift the exhaust up a little more
    - Change taillights
    - Get stockies
    - Install 5-stud conversion
    - Install digital A/C unit, and make that I have working A/C. Would be nice to have on a daily.
    - ... A lot more things.

    Pics: Will take some pictures momentarily, it's pretty messy.

    Overall, this car needs a lot of TLC, but I plan to do only the essentials so far.

    Hope to see the rest of you muppets out on the track...

    Unfortunately custom plates increase your gay factor five fold.

    I sense lee spec butthurt.

    My fellow Australians;
    Recently we've had many people crying out for change, crying out for SilviaWA to be run differently, and in some cases, just crying.
    ...After talking to some people though....what you really meant was "We want things to bedone but we want other people to do them for us".

    Hahaha, Scottie. With my aftermarket cooler, I could totally chop Blairs 15! CA bumper is cool, CA engine is not. I'd say the engine bay is the most appealing bit on this car, but I've just purchased some more bits for it, with more to come on the weekend. I'll throw some pics up later.

    The side mirrors are beyond "lol" worthy. No way would I go out of my way to get such gay plates, they'll be swapped over when I can be fracked.

    I forgot to take them with me today when I payed for the transfer papers, but the bloke said I can just take in these sheetty ones and replace them on the spot for about $24.00. I'll do it when I can be bothered waiting.

    Went around to my mates place to pick up a few parts, still have to get a few more off him on the weeked. I can forsee the list expanding come the weekend, though. :P

    Improved side mirrors! They've been painted black, but I can clean them up at a later date.

    Posted Image

    Another centre console to replace the one which has something nasty spilt inside of it.

    Posted Image

    Another cluster. Didn't plan on getting a digital one, but I'll see if I can get it working.

    Posted Image

    Since I got a digital cluster, I figured I may as well get the dash to suit.

    Posted Image

    It does have more cracks than the other dash, but I plan to bog the cracks up and get the dash flocked, and the same goes for the door cards and glove box.

    Are you talking about the Andrews?

    The Corolla should be alright, but I need to book it in to get the timing belt changed. I'll then sell it to my bro.

    What bumper do you have?

    Hmmm, what colour is the SR front? I really don't mind the CA one. Definitely don't want an FRP bumper.

    I think I'll steal my Lenso RS5's off the Corolla because they have legal tread and will look a lot better!

    I think I'll keep this bar because it's the same as the rest of the car. I want to try and keep this strange occurance of having same coloured panels for as long as possible. Wanting irrelevant things all the time is the definition of Silvia life.

    Also, I degreased my pedals before because it's fracking disgusting having greasy pedals. Turns out the foot rest is greasy as well, and I hadn't cleaned it. Grrrrrr, I fracking hate greasy car parts/interior. Makes me want to punch Munt in the face.
