S13's interior and engine bay painted, 5 lug on

Busy busy busy weekend. Friday the car went into paint, and we started getting things ready early sat morning, then buggered off to a drift even at noon. Sunday, we mobbed all day long. More details on that below.

Drove the daily for a few laps, the seats suck really bad, but other than that even with the lack of power, she did great and I had a good time :) Driving Brians SC was a highlight of the day. Love that thing. I also sported my Icon helmet used in motorcycle vs car drift battle 2 :) Love that thing as well, thanks for hooking me up with it Icon!!!!!

Once again, without Car Crafters and more specifically Brian Dewitts help, none of this car would be possible. Period, end of story.

Sunday, we got the brake and clutch master cylinders in, and Brian knocked out some epic new brake hardlines. We also got all of the suspension swapped over, as well as the 5 lug, e-brake, brake bias adjuster, and dash. All thats left now is the motor, wiring, body panels and glass.

Pics! From white to almost neon yellow.

300zx brake booster and BMC, new CMC as well. 

Powered by MAX e-brake in and awesome.

Car is on all 4s, 5 lugged and ready for motor.

Prepped for paint, and leady to lock! A visit from Ernie Vigil as well!

So I was hoping to get the car in and out of paint today, but sometimes things come up. Still a decent update, got a lot of the smaller things buttoned up, and the car and all of my wheels are now ready for paint :) As always, Brian mobbed like a boss on everything all the time.

The harness bar is welded in place, the plates in the back are tacked in, the Powered by Max hydro e-brake base is welded to the plate, holes poked in the floor during sound deadening removal are patched, all plastic clips are off, the raised section of floor where the cat used to live is pounded down. Brian loves his giant freaking hammer.

On Saturday the one and only Ernie "E-Dub" Vigil from Drift 2 stopped by and lent a hand. It was much appreciated good sir!!

I also had to order a few parts that got destroyed in the wreck... Like the brake booster and clutch master cylinder. Got a used z32 300zx one, and a fresh new CMC. Also ordered a new fuel pressure gauge since mine is so cloudy you can't read anything on it. Thanks to getting hooked up with Amsoil, I got some oil and trans fluids ordered as well.

On to pics!

Tunnel up!

Tunnel down!

I had a ton of wheels to sand :(

All the photos before this one were grainy, and I thought something was wrong with my phone, turns out it was dust... lol.
