today's update i have marked where i need to cut the shell to fit the engine and gearbox sadly i made the decisions to keep the auto box that the engine came with but still should be fun also i made the decisions to use 200sx s13 front and rear sub frames and a Volvo 240 manual steering rack the justy is started to get the paint removed for a respray all the suspension and drive line has now been removed
all the drive line and engine gearbox is for sale in in Swindon uk if anyone is interested please pm me wont be asking much for them

hello madmatt thanks for your reply with the auto box i will still need a shift linkage however a few pivots should sort this out i have designed the transmission tunnel so that in the future when i have the funds to put a manual gearbox it will fit with very little modification

the fire wall has now been cut and so has the transmission tunnel
next i need to get the sub frames from an s13 shouldn't be to hard but may take a few days to search for them after that i will be taking the car off the roller and mounting the v8 in for the first time so i can make a new firewall and tunnel
deegore: I slept in my 2 door driving from AZ to MN. Some front seats that fold flat would be necessary to really get comfortable.

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.

justytrudeau: Just replaced my headlights with LED's as well as all my dashboard instrument cluster. None of them work, and now my taillights have gone out too. Likely wiring issue, eh?
