    She’s finally on the ground Just borrowing some s13 coilovers while I wait for mine to come in. I still need to buy rotors, bolt up the brakes, and figure out what lines to adapt to the s14’s brake calipers. If only I could get the rear as low as the front easily. All in due time. Note the cool intercooler position

    Getting ready to paint! Hopefully tomorrow! I've removed most of the rust, scuffed up the original paint. Just need to drill out the spot welds on the battery tray, finish sanding under there and mask off all the lines and such. Motor mounts should also be done this weekend.

    Thanks! It’s a slow process but it’ll be there soon.

    You can already see a world of a difference! So much cleaner. Getting ready to respray it the oem white before we throw in the SR this weekend

    A buddy of mine is in the middle of designing some mounts for my SR. So far this is what he has planned. He says his prototype will be done Saturday and that's when we'll be able to drop the motor in. Hopefully all goes well! I also finished welding the cross member and installing the control arms. Just waiting on another buddy to deliver my coilovers this weekend so hopefully the car is on the ground and running by then. Fingers crossed! :thumbup:

    Sorry for the lack of updates, but I promise it isn't just sitting in my garage rotting away. The L20 was removed. I sold it to a (somewhat) local drifter for his B210 project. So I guess I'm really doing this whole SR swap now lol Had a buddy cut and flip the cross member. It's just tacked together currently. Waiting on when he has time to finish welding it, but it's together. GTX2 Front LCA's & tension rods to replace the old ones. I also had them install an S14 ball joint so I can convert to S14 hub/brakes/coilovers. There's so many more options for everything for S chassis. I could go 5 lug in the future easily, convert to Z32 brakes, replace parts by going to Auto Zone etc. Been really thinking about repainting my goon the oem white inside and out while it's all taken apart. At the very least, I'll repaint the engine bay and the floor. One step at a time.

    Thanks for the info! I’ll be ordering new control arms and tension rods soon then

    Well it's been over a week since I've given an update as there hasn't been anything spectacular happening. Front end is still in the air. I'll be ordering a couple parts soon so hopefully I can update with that by next week. Quick question though. I've read that 510 and 610 suspension is very similar. Are the tension rods and front LCA's the same? From what I've come across, the tension rod is, but I'm not finding any information on the LCA's. Thanks in advance for anyone that can answer this for me :thumbup:

    Well I got my blocks in a couple days ago. Ran into my first problem. The hole wasn’t wide enough for the nipple to slip into so I had to bore out the hole. It was 1/2”. I bored it out to 5/8”. Simple enough. I just used my drill press. Second problem was this thing that holds the leaves in place (not sure what it’s called. Please inform me if you know) made the nipple too wide so I used my bench grinder to grind it flat so the nipple on the leaf would not be over 3/4” wide. I’m working on the second side as I’m typing this out and will post pictures. Probably after I eat dinner.

    Mocking up S14 full front suspension. So far looks plausible. Would just need customize the oem swaybar, or fab an s chassis one and caster arms. I may go with S13 front suspension just because the LCA is shorter by aprox an inch.

    Only time will tell. Can't wait to get my baseball bat to pull the fenders :rofl:

    Ordered the rest of the tires and some 4” lowering blocks. Feels good to have this car off the back burner
