The dr20 wheels you had were in 114x4? I can't find them anywhere in our bolt pattern!

I thought they were but your right all I see is 4x100. The 1" spacers I had on must have been a 4x114 to 4x100 adapter

Never mind that! Found them on eBay. Nice build by the way. Your original s30 inspired my dream of an NA RB in the distant future!

Thanks, I miss the old Z..never should have sold it! The N/A Rb was really fun, finding aftermarket parts was a scavenger hunt though.

I'm looking forward to feeling turbo power once again! B)

Just a thought looking back on this post I had a thought. On my 1 Z I had a similar radiator and I got a sandwich plate and used that bottom portion of the radiator as the oil cooler and it worked pretty good. Had to get creative routing the line to clear the alternator pulley but just a thought.

Only one word is needed for this and it's "WOW". Absolutely love the work you're doing to it at the moment! Keep up the effort, you're an inspiration to us all including myself. :D

Awesome work man, I still remember sending you a pm for your old Z when you were selling it but it went slightly beyond my budget on ebay and missed it. Got something else and now about it to finish it. It was one hell of a built looking forward to see this one as well :)

Just throwing this video in here for fun. With my Z still sitting in the shop collecting dust getting all the wiring sorted out this video helps keep the faith that one day hopefully soon, I'll get to bring my car home and have my little slice of heaven.
