Ok guys...this car was bought from a fellow tuner in 2010 i believe...and for the last 2 to 3 yrs it was just parked up..so i decided to give it a facelift and restore her to her glory days...plz note..nothing was wrong with mechanical or body but being almost 20yrs old..she needed a lil love and some time,money,sweat,patience and did i mention love...as u can see from the pics..she left my garage to take up residence in a paddna garage from october 2016...it was never my intention to rush and do tings with this car..so i gave the mechanic/painter as long as they wanted to finish the car...
Engine was removed and upon removal..we noticed a rust spot under the radiator...that was addressed
Engine bay was prepped to be repainted the original color
Bushings, mounts..ends changed..back shocks also changed
Water pump changed with genuine nissan pump
Engine was scrapped and all seals,belts etc changed..new plugs..
Tappet pan seals changed...inside of engine looked spotless.
No engine gum
Tranny was disassembled and cleaned and put back together
New knock sensor installed
Engine was given a thorough clean and then repainted...
Engine and tranny was then installed and car restarted....new battery..new k&n cone filter..throttle service..iacv serviced..airflow serviced....starter and alternator basically overhauled and in new condition..original nissan coolant used...front brakes pad changed(bosch)..powersteering fluid flushed and changed
Brakes fluid flushed and changed..
Chassis painted in black as there was easy access with the engine out
Then on to the time consuming part...the body work
Although not much needed to be done..i wanted it flawless...and i have a keen eye for imperfections...so i gave the painter the assurance that i wasnt hurry because i know the quality of work he could produce....
Right now the car is in the final stages wrt exterior....hopefully this week painting could take place

On to the interior...if anyone know about these cars...getting original interior parts are hell...
Got a complete set of new seats from a 2013 CY lancer...lines up well with minor fabrication
Floor mat was pressure washed but my pit and rott decided that i dont need that and tore it to pieces...surprisingly found a almost new condition floor mat in the bamboo for $500
ICE will be close to stock as possible....really dont think i need a lot of music because it will be parked home mostly
Last couple of things to do is match the door upholstery fabric and color with that of the seats...thoroughly run throught the ac syst for any leaks and bad seals etc..align and camber..and change a couple bushings in the rear banjo.....

No expenses was and will be spared on this vehicle..and once completed to the way i vision it...it will make a couple rounds on the car show/underground meets and then it may be for sale...project 130i bmw
Feel free to comment both positive and negative...and il keep updating

What engine does it have currently 2L?? I've seen on forums those vq engines couple nice with a little boost under proper management and tuning.

TSC on the forums should have info or can source you some springs.. Or even go gecko too..


And just to chook u a little

Good project. Having had one of these, i can tell you that upgrading from a vq20de to a jdm vq25de (190ps) made a huge difference and preserved the originality and reliability of the vehicle....no cut wires or splicing etc ....just plug and play.
I have a set of Tein STech lowering springs for this car which you are welcome to have.
