Spent a few hours stripping stuff out of the car last night. Every time I remove a panel or undo a bolt there's another mile of wiring or another module, controller or motor to be removed. No wonder these things are heavy.

Also started trying to work out how the tyres are going to fit. Right now, they're not going to but we can fix that.

If you cultivate that black-on-white theme then you've got half a chance of making this look good.

Rear end will be a mix of S14/GTST/GTR/custom parts but will remain IRS.

Power management will be more important than outright power but I expect it to make around 1200.

Took the car to a buddy's house (Astill Design) last night to begin work on cleaning up the engine bay. Between the Nissan factory and the previous owners they sure knew how to put holes everywhere. One rust repair in the left side front wheel tub and a heap of filling with the MIG was first before we started plugging larger holes with bits of steel and the TIG. Will be back at it this afternoon finishing the firewall and patching up the right side and both rails. Also noticed this thing has JIC arms in the front.Not sure what good they'll do me but they're there.

Going to need more injector than what I first thought so I've got six Precision 225s and six more Precision 550s coming for it. They hurt the back pocket but they're worth it and a proven combination with methanol.

Ross balancer, triggers, oil pump, block-offs, brackets, drives, pulleys and more arrived today to go with the Ross billet sump pan from earlier.

It all looks amazing. Can't wait to bolt it up.
