So here is my new project. 1990 240sx hatch. It's been going on now for 3 or 4 weeks now.
Soon to be SR powered (Sorry Everett)

The engine is sitting in there but I have to get some recent pics.
It's come some ways from these pics. I'm going today to get some more. Ill update.

Body is super duper straight, shaved body line, shaved wiper (cause I drive forwards not backwards) and shaved engine bay.

The color it started out as....

Black sealer

Basecoat Dark Teal

All finished up...
2 coats of sealer
2 coats of base
4 coats of clear

And my dirty ass engine, it'll be cleaned no worries.

More to come soon...

One of my good buddies Mike Hans. He owns Precision Collision in Hendersonville.

Thanks guys...

I will be curious to watch the swap as I am doing one in the same car right now.

lookin' awesome dude :thumbup: keep us posted

can't wait to see the finished product :D
looks good... like the color
AHHH this is what im wanting to do!... Its so hard to find a NICE body240... do all these damn kids/people just beat the hell out of every one?
SR, KA makes no difference its whatever your into... I just like giving you a hard time about it.. Any updates on the motor?
I haven't heard anything from the head shop, but I'm sure it a burnt exhaust valve on number 2. I'll hear more tomorrow.

Not much as far as motor work goes. Just the everyday SR swap.
The nice thing about me having to pull the head off is that I got to see the factory cross-hatch pattern on the cylinder walls.


I'll be runnning 600cc injectors, blitz ecu, turbo xs intercooler and top mount manifold, turbonetics evolution wastegate and garett t3/t4 setup. Nothing special. Hoping for 350 or so.

I'm also running a FReddy intake manifold and FReddy oil pan. JDM tyte fo sho.

-Suspension and Braking...

5 lug conversion (rolling the old S14 SE wheels as well), TT brakes, drilled and slotted brakes all around.
Ground control coilovers, and suspension techniques sway bars.

-Other goodies...

B&M short shifter

Should be fun. Not looking to break any records or anything. Just fun. :lol: :thumbup:

It's called burmuda blue. You might see it on some 08 Chevy Tahoes. Very smooth looking color. and you'll never see another 240 like it.... haha.
