Hey guys,

I wanted to introduce myself, I've been hanging on this forum site since 2007 in the B12 section.

I'm about 98% finished with my B12 Ca18det sentra and this past week I bought a 91 Sentra SE-R for $1200 bucks.

The car is on it's third transmission from the idiot that tried to rag the crap out of it before. Currently it has a stage 3 clutch (will shall be removed soon - omg talk about sore foot) as well as about a 2 inch high short shifter (likewise to be removed). The guy also had urethane bushings on the motor mounts which pretty much just equals TONS of vibration. It also has an aluminum flywheel, cruise control (dunno if it's factory or not), strut tower brace, K&N, after market exhaust, and urethane on all the suspension.

I'm going to work on the body/paint mods before I mess with the engine, the plan is a GTIR SR20DET, FMIC, and just run about 10 psi for a good ol work car hehe. I know the swap from what I've read is pretty straight forward and will be a heck of a lot more easier than the b12 ca18det I just did.

Now for the body Mods that are incoming:

I've already bought the Nissan Sunny Gts front bumper and side skirts as well as the amber JDM corners, and will be ordering the Tsuru headlights/grille sometime this week. Once I get all that in, I'm gonna buy the bright blue paint that Cobolt Chevys come with and have my body/paint guy get started with the side skirts and bumper/grille. I'm also gonna snag some 2002 Se-R 16 inch rims from the salvage yard and throw on the thing.

Here's what we're starting with:

Okay quick update...

I've gotten my GTS front bumper and we're removing the fins in it's lower grille area as well as smoothing over the bumper where the license plate went in.

I've installed the amber corners, but am still working on getting a good deal on a 2009 Tsuru Grille & headlights as well as steering wheel.

I also have the new paint for the car, it's Azure Blue from the new Altima coupes...

I also found a great deal on (3) 99 Sentra wheels for $32.00 a piece, the 4th cost me a little more $65 shipped...

I won't get the other 3 wheels until next week, but I refinished the 4th this past week while I'm waiting...

Here's a pic...



But while I was at it, I figured I might as well restore the rims I currently have, as I probably won't put these new ones on until after I paint the car...maybe.

Before...



and After...

I did a search at car-parts.com and found some up in the upper part of West Virginia. Anyhow, I had a customer coming in to camp from Pennsylvania and was going to be driving right through the town where the junkyard was. I offered him $50 bucks off his cabin rental if he'd pick em up for me.

Got the wheels for $32 bucks a piece...They were great shape as far as no curb rash etc, but the paint was peeling on them. I took them to the vocational school and they let me use their sand blast cabinet for free. Blasted them, painted them, then got 195/50's and installed them...

Okay, after about 9 hours of working today (inbetween answering calls at work) - I have finally finished my brake upgrades...

I put NX2000 calipers on the front with powerslot rotors and on the rear JDM NX2000 rotors with Maxima calipers. Along with goodridge stainless steel brake lines and an altima master cylinder. While I was at it, I painted up the wheel wells. Phew!

Pics!

Se-r's come with factory disc, all I did was put maxima calipers and jdm nx2000 rotors on it.

If you want rear disc on yours, you need to buy the whole assembly from a junkyard se-r or nx2000 and bolt it to your upper and lower arms.

Okay, quick update!

I took the car to the paint shop and began tearing it down. So in 3 hours I had it tore apart and ready to get start with sanding/paint.















ALSO, here is a pic of my Sunny Bumper painted (yes this is the color the whole car will be).

We've got a little modifying left, I'm gonna cut out the center section and make a air dam for the future intercooler...

Also, here is my seat recovered in imitation leather - I'll be dropping the guts of the rest of the interior off today to get re-covered.
