I made it! 

 

I'm sorry I forgot to take my camera to garage today so phone pics only but i will post some pics after my vacation but here's what has been happening.

 

First, you can't get 11mm ball joints from Finland, I didn't have much time so i did some research and found a guy who was selling a set of steering knuckles for 14mm ball joint.

I bought those and ordered 14mm ball joints from my friends car parts store. First problem down.

 

My friend finally got the rear brake caliper brackets ready and I got my rear control arms back, first thing i did was to take the old bearings off and weld 3mm thick reinforcement plates where the shock bolts in. Next day I took all the rest of the suspension parts to sandblast and powder coat. I have to thank the company who did it they got all the parts ready in 24 hours!

So then i got all the parts i needed, last Monday i went to the garage and assembled all the front suspension parts. On Wensday I assembled all the rear suspension parts and spend Thursday night welding a reinforcement bar under the trunk. On thursday night at 11pm the car was back on it's wheels and ready to go rollcage shop.

Today me and my dad took the car to roll cage shop and it will be ready in the next two weeks, when i get it back I will take a little "break" from the project because I need to work more so i can save money for the new parts hah. I will do all the "free" stuff on the while. ( new handbrake assembly etc.)

Now, in the next 10hours I will hop into a plane to Mexico and relax for 2 weeks! Merry Christmas and happy new year to everyone!

That trailer looks pretty awesome, more tie down points than you can shake a stick at.

The guy also fixed twio rust spots under the windshield so i dont have to worry about those either.

While assembling the rear suspension i noticed that my shocks are too short so i need to buy atleast 7cm (3") longer shocks to get the rear high enought. 

 

I'm not 100% sure what to do next but i'm pretty sure that i know it next week when i go to garage and start to think the next move.

That's it for now!

Hi Japrnoo. Been following this. Very nice. I have exactly similar car. Same colour, year and happens to be in Finland too........Where did you order parts to your project? Looking for poly bush set and some other bits. Also I noticed that even the interior of your car has same colour as mine. I need new red rear seat and thought what happened to yours? Obviously you do not need it anymore. Would you like to sell it?

Hi! 

 

I can sell a pair. The Price is 350 euros + shipping. 

 

Really dont want to give the dimension, my friend spend 20+ hours to do those and I paid him over 500 euros for all that.

 

If you're still interested send me a PM.

 

 

What a great build! Hooked!!

 

Thank you! At the moment money is the only issue to get this forward but I'm trying to get that situation better!

Something to share..

 

Hi, not much happened but here's something.

 

Test fitted new rear brakes and the wheels, 14" wheel clears those 258mm discs nicely. I'm trying to go with 280mm in the front.

Made some reinforcement weldings over the body, still going to do some to wheel wells & frame.

Bought this nice Mikuni intake like I told in the earlier post. There's also the 219 Head wich came with the L18 engine.

Next thing is to get the seat, test fit it to its right place so I can make sure that the steering wheel will be at the good height. After that i will fit the s13 handbrake lever and wires on their places, then i think im ready to paint the bottom of the car and assemble everything back in for the last time.

Hi.

 

No paint on the bottom yet, and might not be for a while..

I want to test fit all the parts that bolt in to bottom of the car before painting it, just to make sure that i donĀ“t have to drill or weld anything after the painting.

 

So here's whats has happened.

 

Found pair of OMP RS2 seats in good condition for only 350 euros, these are not FIA approved anymore but will go for the first two summers for practicing.

Also bolted the trans on it's place so could also test the shifter. I'm happy to tell you that I dont have to make a remote shifter, just dont like how they look..

 

Assembled rear discs and calipers so could test fit the handbrake wires, just need to buy a pair of seat brackets more so i can where the passenger seat goes before i can install the lever.

These arrived factory fresh from Italy this week, they might be a bit overkill but atleast i know that the car will stop in the future!

42758397941_0c57cd7154_b.jpg

 

Tarox B280 six point calipers. I'm hoping to use wilwood 11x0.81" discs with these, they should fit but if not I will go with 10.75" disc.

41857737385_965c4b6a62_b.jpg

 

So yeah not much but something. I'm looking for a R180 4.11 diff with "K", if someone has one to sell send me a pm or comment here..

Next thing is to order brake disc centers & some other stuff from DPracing and fit the front brakes in, then I'm going to need some rubber on my wheels because those brakes wont fit into

those 13" steel wheels anymore. 

 

Also trying to start to build the engine soon. 

 

Thanks for reading my topic, all the tips are welcome!
