well a few months ago i purchased my first s13. $2069 for a 1991 240sx hb se. its in pretty good shape i'd say for its age. i may a thread a while back when i first got it but im just now puttin the pics up. ive put a ton of work into this thing just to get it where it is right now, but it was well worth it.

heres some before pics:









and here are the after pics: enjoy!













i hope you like it. its nothing special but it looks a lot better now. its gonna be undergoing some big changes as soon as it gets warmer.

looks nice. what are you plans with the car?
well i gotta lot of plans....now how many of them i will get to is the real question. im actually fixing to order some bronze 17X9 fn's. i had no idea that splparts had them in 4X114.3. im finally getting to drop my sr20det in when it gets warm. i also plan on painting it the silver green pearl over dark gray metallic as soon as i gather all of my s13 silvia front end parts. i figured i'd be different and two tone my hatchback.

damn, nice job.

NOW DROP THAT 4x4!
im actually getting use to the car with stock suspension right now. its very different going from a s14 to a hatchback. i swear this car has the biggest ass end. when i feel very comfortable with the car in its current state, then i will drop it.

looks nice. glad you got rid of the wing. how rusted is she?
the rust was only bad in one spot. it had a rusty hole the size of a golfball. i sprayed on this stuff that turned most of it back to black primer and fiberglassed/bondo'd until i was pleased. me and my buddy painted it along with the bumpers. theres still some low spots but im gonna put a wangan wing on it...

thats my little brothers '91 base w/ auto. its pretty clean too. i'll have to get him to take some pics. i think he's gonna sell it and buy a 5 speed instead of converting it.

nice progress. not a fan of the exhaust (i like duals), but it does look good.
get some meatier tires, 195/55's are soooooo small....at least that's what they look like.
i'd blur out your tag though.

lol nothing ahaha i live in mem i saw were u got it in wolfchase dobbz i was suprised how much ur bro asking for his sx
yea i got it for a steal. they wanted like $3000 for it and i knew they didnt have any money in it, plus it aint for that. i offered them $1500 for it and they accepted, too bad after taxes it was $2069. they were cool though they let me have the car for a day so i could put it in the shop. i dunno how much my bro wants for it, i can ask tho.
