So I've found a daily. 

 

And it's a Nissan! But it's not a Skyline -- so anyone confused by the title should just bail now. 

 

It's a 1992 Sentra SE-R that I bought from Kevin (I don't remember you Ratsun screen name so I'll need to do some research).

First order of business is to do some cleanup on the clear coat. Going at it with polish, rubbing compounds, and wax to try and make it passable until I pull panels to put some new clear on them. 

 

I already tried putting the S13 steering wheel on the car, but there's some interfering with the pins that create connections for the cruise control. This results in a super annoying clicking when you turn the wheel. I'll be putting some more thought into it then re-attacking. 

 

Some MOAR LOWAR and some new wheels and tires coming soon as well. 

 

And speakers. It needs speakers. The stock ones are really... not good.

Nothing ever goes as planned.

B13 SE-R is a damned fine car.

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

B13 SE-R is a damned fine car.

After only about 100 miles of driving I concur. 

 

However, it is fail-wheel-drive, but for a daily it's better than I could have hoped. Car doesn't really behave like FWD, it's very tossable and really doesn't push too badly (push I've noticed comes from the cheap tires, but those will go soon enough).

Decided Serenity deserved some real photos that didn't come from a phone.

Sooon... Lows are on their way, exhaust will wait until I get the 510 back on the road with it's new exhaust.

I've always like those cars. Good find.
