    Default Spaceframed SR20DET RWD Nova

    Picked up this beast a few months back for a measly £70. It was gonna be used just to swap on insurance against my turbo to get a refund then scrapped. Once I got the car back I saw how clean it was and decided to build a budget track car.



    Its got a big dent in the quarter...



    A light tap up the bottom Andyracer style...

    ~original

    And the roof and bonnet are riddled with dents so much so puddles actually form! lmao But it all ads to the chararcter and they will stay this way.

    Let some mechanics begin!

    Front suspension all stripped out and bottom arms sent off to be modded along with tie bar brackets...



    Cleaned up my f16cr which might be used..




    Acquired some vectra v6 rear hubs to fit to go 5 stud but compared to cav items the handbrake cable is on the bottom not top but with a little shaving of the conversion plate they will fit...

    And thats where I am at the moment!

    Once the bottom arms and brackets are done the front suspension can go off to powder coaters. The 5 stud machined fronts have been ordered so will hopefully tie in the bits back from the coaters then front end can get back on wheels.

    The car will then go to mates where we will convert the rear beam and do all the shell prep.

    Happy days! :D

    Thats what I love about it!

    When finished it will look exactly as the top pic but slammed on turbo rims.

    But under the bonnet, underneath and inside it will be immaculately presented.
