Not too long ago, we were poking around online (as we often do) and we found ourselves scrolling through a very long build thread. Then all of a sudden, we realized that the best part about this particular build was the ability to see what is going on behind the scenes. The actual build up process itself has been so well documented that we thought we would start sharing our favorite build threads from various forums. Here is our first, a '92 Nissan 240SX.
This build is kind of like a restoration meets modification, a "restomod" is the term hot rodders use. It's a bit odd in this case, because the 240 is less than 20 years old, but anyone who has tried to build one knows how Hard most of these cars' lives are.
As you can see, the owner spared little expense over the course of this build. This kind of attention to detail is truly inspiring, and it makes us happy to see how positive the response is from the forum.
This car is powered by a turbocharged KA, which is also a bit different than what we see most often these days. The choice of subtle 180SX OEM aero, paired with the crazy bright teal green paint is a winning look that we would be proud to park in our own garages.
The owner says his goal was to build the cleanest example of an S13 that he possibly could, a car that would be "like new" to him when finished. We think it's safe to say he has accomplished this!
