S13 hatch resto/build

Okay so I just picked up an S13 hatch that was pretty much gutted to the max and was started to be put back together but given up on. I now have most of the parts to get it running but I I'm looking for help and wisdom from experienced 240 people because this is my first build/restoration project which Im doing by myself. Ill try to post updates as much as possible because I'm going to be working on it nearly every waking hour I'm not at work or school.

Ill try to post pictures soon she's got potential but, she's also kind of a hack job...

Can't wait to see the end product. Good luck on the journey as I am also restoring and building my project car too.

Welcome man,
I would not have advised you to buy a torn apart project car but nonetheless here we are.
The factory service manual is available to download on here somewhere, that is a great resource (maybe the best)

Do you have all stock parts, any upgraded parts? What engine by the way?

Yeah I pretty much have all the stock parts up until the wiring (which ill explain) and an after market ignition coil, but my biggest hurdle right now the the body harness... when I bought the car the guy before me started installing a painless performance costume body harness. However making a custom harness is way over my head and I've found literally nothing on how to put them in a 240.. So i turned to the jumbled up body harness that was siting in a card board box in the back of the car. Ive started the plug and play process but but I'm afraid the harness might just be too hacked. With that in mind i am currently searching for a donor car but those are practically a fantasy in the midwest lol. also still working on getting pictures im not allowed to post them yet

Update, I found a donor car of sorts. I found what I've been told through craigslist is all the wiring except for the engine harness, and along with it a sil80 conversion for a steal. Im going to look it over this weekend will try to keep updating as much as possible.
