    Brandon, looks great dude!

    I'm a long time fan of imports myself, and being a previous owner of a fixed up 240sx hatch (long list of mods, owned from 2000-2006) I always enjoy a well done build of one.

    Keep up the great work my friend. Where about in NC do you live?

    happens with me all the time....my current doldrums has been going on for about 2 years...i'll get some inspiration to build here and there, but I never get really far. I can attribute some of it to having a child and a wife who doesn't support my model car hobby

    He was flakey on facebook so I gave up on getting one of those transtar 2's for 25 bucks...plus shipping..

    I've actually thought of that since I do have one of those languishing in a box, I was going to use the efi big block out of the 67 396 SS then pop a supercharger on it...not a lot of room..might just go with the elky engine though..

    lol, yeah I won a hotwheels vehicle off of ebay around christmas time and it hit the Charlotte dist. center and stayed there for 2 weeks....

    anyway, good to know a fellow modeller around the queen city...if you ever want to get together for a build and bull let me know...

    as a person who got first hand experience with installations of both the greddy oil pan and the intake, you hit them DEAD ON...color me extremely impressed

    yeah, go ahead and put me down for 4 of these when you get the molds made.....i've got so many things they could be used in...shoot I'll build one and detail it out just to put on a motor stand...lol

    MIke, I've wondered about this...I subscribe to cafe racer magazine and my issue #18 was missed, or so I thought....so I got in touch with the magazine and they sent me another issue....turns out the replacement issue got to my house 2 days before my regular issue...lol

    Where in Charlotte do you live? I'm on the Northlake side

    Thanks guys!

    They are aoshima advan rs-somethings..lol I think they are in the 19" wheel line, stripped of chrome and sprayed white. These are also flat rims, the nice deep lips come from other aoshima rims that have sep. lips on them. There was a very long process of deciding which ones to put on this kit...these won out.

    I'll try and muster some motivation to finish this one...it's actually pretty close...if I don't include and engine (which i'm almost at the decision)

    Jimmy...can you show me a picture of the valve you are questioning? If it's what I think it is, it's pcv related...

    oh and this looks great! I look forward to possibly picking one of these up :-)

    Looks good Vince...but what really caught my eye was your avatar...not too many people around here are fans of the s13 silvia...I fell so in love with them I bought a 240sx years ago and put the jdm spec front end on it...

    Props to you

    Randy, I had no Idea Nick was your son til last night...he told me to check your facebook page and I saw your pearl white 49 merc from a while back...still one of my favorite builds from that kit. Also, let me say, Nick is a good kid...not too many around these days...you've done well with instilling proper car knowledge in him...lol
