newest mod is circuit sports 60mm wheel studs all the way around.
lowered it soem more and added negative camber. youll see i had to lower it the wrong way with the springs. this is because the body will not thread down i tried everything i had on hand. Thats ok this is onyl a track drift car now. its off the road.
Took the car out for a quick drive to enjoy my work.
This is what it looked like when i first bought August 21st 2006 I hope to soon have it back running with a nice new engine build and green new color along with the finished complete body kit.
This is in ontraio somewhere by the great lakes.
Updates Feb 27th 2011 paint job and running again.
Awsome to see it all one color again i did this over the last 3 days at my local auto club. Not too bad at all. Im happy Photos give no justice to the collor looks way better in person.

ah are for finding a front end like this one i have to say it may be near imposible now. It looks like from what i have read in magazine articles about this conversion that a body shop had these custom made on demand and take a wheil to make and can cost near to $6000. soo i guess your going to have to build a conversion out of fiberglass datsun parts and such but it will not be easy. My car had the front conversion done thats why i bough it mainly. i knew it was rare.
That is truly nice, where did you find that front end at. Planning on getting a 180sx myself.
love you car! the color is awesome! i had a grand am that was close to the same color lol very nice 5*
Nice 91'180SX Hatchback Coupe Sileighty Right-Hand Wheel. 5*****
