    My E30SR project...

    So iv been a member on here for a little bit of time now so thought it was about time to share what iv been building...

    May not be to everyone's taste & people may have their own opinions by it... I'm building this for me, how I want it & how I want to use it... it's for me to enjoy.

    I won't do a lot of chit chat on this first post because iv been working on it for about a year now & its a lot to go through, so il just let the pictures do the talking....

    Cheers

    **update**

    Managed to get the central locking & Clifford alarm system working that I found had been fitted incorrectly about 10 years ago... so now it's all tided up and working correctly..
    Got my custom gearknob on looks & feels good...

    My brother came over and decided to do some fancy farty photos.

    So next task is fuel lines & electrics to the engine.. then we are ready to turn the key :-)

    What is he, a portrait photographer?

    Love the steering wheel!

    Bet that's getting exciting being so close to hearing it crank! Scary tho..

    do you still want me to dig you a lower loom out?

    Shafts iv had 530d ones made to fit so they should take abit of punishment... diff wise it's a LSD in at the minute but I can't see it holding out so when it does go (because it will eventually) I'm going to put a 535D rear diff in it with a custom rear axle & carrier. But... I want to get it going and then I can sort bits like that out after. Iv now got a 350z gearbox sat in the garage waiting for the 3rd gear of my sr20 box to be chewed up.... in prepared for bad situations lol

    Finally managed to get the propshaft all done and fitted so it's now off for the exhaust to be built.

    Just waiting on my fuel lines to arrive and sort the electrics out..
