    Hi, I'm in Cornwall and have done the CD009 conversion in my s14, so if you still have any questions I may be able to help or let you have a look at mine?

    That is of good you. I would like to take a look and have a chat. Money will be my limiting factor to get it all done but I'm all ears and not in any special rush

    Yeah no problem, if you want to PM me I'll send you my postcode. It is a very noisy box so a ride in mine will give you an idea of whether you can put up with the noise. My car is coming off the road at the end of October for his winter refresh so you will need to be quick if you do want to try it out? I managed to do my conversion for about 1100 with getting my box for a good price and a lot of help from my friends!

    Holy crap this has been a long time... Most of the time I have been away the car has unfortunately been off of the road. Let's say that life has got in the way! Every time I have seen my neglected car, sitting outside, it takes a piece of my heart.

    During this time away with the car off the road I have extended my house and had a child so I am grateful that I managed to hang on to the S15 at all. I now find myself happily single and with some more spare time (unfortunately still working during lockdown though) so I have pulled my socks up and decided get a grip and do something about it! In the mean time I will still be working full time and trying to start a business on the side so don't expect this to happen quickly please.

    I couldn't possibly break the car. I have owned it for about 10 years and I put so much blood, sweat and tears to make it into the first roadgoing SR20VET in the UK back in 2015 (to my knowledge) I still doubt there are many others! I HAVE TO REBUILD IT or part of me dies with it!

    I'm going to start a new thread for the nut&bolt rebuild when I get a few things sorted. First off building a 6m x 5m car port and getting all the kit together to make a vapour blasting cabinet. I'm hoping to try my hand at blasting, powdercoating and electroplating during this build. I'm happy with the engine, it just needs an external wastegate and a 350Z gbx. Otherwise, I'll play the rest by ear and see how much money I have when it comes to re-assembling everything! I still would love a YashioFactory Gulf bodykit...

    Cool

    I've started stripping down the car and building a car port above it but with the lockdown the last bits of timber are taking forever to arrive!! (Car stripped more now than photo)

    I'm getting myself sorted with the tools that I am going to need. Only a few more parts to go and I'll be able to start testing the vapor blasting cabinet. I took some advice and will be using glass bead 150-250micron media for the Aluminium components and Aluminium oxide 60/80 for the steel components. I've also got a blasting attachment for my karcher which I will use to blast the engine block with Aluminium Silicate media to spruce it up before I bring it into the house to store. At least the engine doesn't need any internal work!

    The dining room is being turned into a workshop and the front room into storage. Everything that come off is getting attention of some sort. The 3L ultrasonic parts cleaner I've got is great for the smaller components! Next tools to get are powdercoating gun, and a used electric oven.

    Apparently the car doesn't need any welding so fingers crossed that's right but I'm preparing myself for sanding back, rust proofing and sealing all of the underside. I've purchased pretty much the entire bilt-hamber anti-corrosion range. It's good stuff although as with many jobs it's the preparation that counts!

    I've got a growing parts list to get the 350Z GBX up and running with the car. I've actually got a 6speed from a 2007 VQ35HR (picked up fairly cheap so worth a gamble). I believe it's the same internals as CD009 but has a concentric slave cylinder not an external one with a lever. This will need upgrading from the standard fragile unit. I don't know yet, or have forgotten, if it has the same bolt layout/bellhousing as the CD009 and whether I'll be able to use an S15 clutch. Anyone know or heard of one of these boxes being used for coversions?

    I've got some more cool parts laying about:

    Will need a few extra bits to get my GTX2867R externally gated too.

    In general the whole build will be to restore the condition/longevity of the shell and bring the performance up to where it should be and close to maxing that GTX2867R out at nearer 475hp. The aesthetics of the paintwork will probably have to wait but I'll have laid some solid foundations.
