however i have gotten some work done.
dropped the subframe and removed the bushings. painted it gloss black. ready to drop in the PBM subframe risers.
got PBM coilovers in 8/6 spring rates.
got full rear PBM multi-link
got a rp sport subframe braces
got a gt spec rear lower subframe brace
only problem is, the subframe risers are delayed untill april 21st. so my car is lame.
i still need tires, and clutch parts.
paying the IRS today. plus rent and shit, so its not too big a deal i ahve to wait longer, since i prolly wouldnt be fnished till end of april anyway, it just sucks i cant put the subframe back together and reinstall it all.

gonna start working a third job hopefully.
i've go too much time on my hands, and nothing to do with it.
trying to keep money spending to a minimum. gotta get through the slow times and the lack of work. plus i owe the gov so that too.
got alot of tv shows to catch up on.
too bad my computers power supply craps out everytime i try and play a video.
sold my xbox360. i never used it anyway so it doesnt matter. i've got some copper collected from work that i can turn in. hahaha.
fuck the economy.

as does the fact that shits slow at both of my jobs, so im barely getting hours.
all i can do is wait it out really, there's nothing else i can do.
its probably a good thing i'm single, less money wasted on bullshit.
if i had my way, i would just spend every dime i have on my car and drive the piss out of it all day. hmmm yess! maybe one day.
at least i have some time to catch up on sleep and get some shit done around the house i've been meaning to do.

need new areo.
need new suspension (well not really, but i want new shit)
PAINT PAINT PAINT PAINT PAINT thats the main goal for 2010. i swear to god i will sell this shitty ass 21 year old car if i dont paint it this year. i can't stand driving an ugly broken piece of shit car.
im bout to come up on 850 bucks tomorrow once i return the bag of infinite sorrows. that chapter of my life is now over and im fucking glad because that whole relationship was one sided and i tried so fucking hard to make it work but i just didn't get it back from her and i realize that she never really cared for me the way i did for her but anyways we had a quick final talk and now i have closure and i can man up and move the fuck on.
ANYWAYS MOVING ON WITH LIFE.
MOST DEFINITELY is my year.

which is funny, becuase a year ago i was deadset on some bronze xd9s
but i ended up with rpf1s in sbc becuase they had better sizes
but those got boring really quick so now im trading them for something WAY more cool. pics to come when the deals finalized.
bad news is top secret so i dont want to talk about it
good news is that becuase of the bad news, i will hopefully have about 850 bucks to spend that i didnt have before.
spare drift wheels? or the pricey areo i've been eyeballing? its a tough decision!!
plus tax return money soon hopefully i think? i hope?
cars are annoying!
plans for twenty ten are:
buy a truck
buy a trailer
use truck to pull the trailer which will have my car on it.
and maybe, finally, go to the track?
its a possibility! maybe.
given my history of never having my car in a good enough condition to pass tech and be reliable, chances are i wont make it to the track at all, ever, in my life. never going to happen.
its a labor of love.
and lots of wasted money.
sometimes i think is it worth all the heartache and headache and empty wallet and stress. i dont know. i really my car. i really love driving my car. i honestly can't picture myself not owning a 240sx. i love it. i really do. i've spent so much time energy and money on this hobby and i don't regret it at all. some people don't get it, but that doesnt matter. it makes me happy and it makes me smile and i feel proud and accomplished of what i've done with it.
alright i lost my train of though, end emo ranting. hahahhahahahahhahahaa fuck my life.

i got the car running around april and it ran great.
and than i blew the motor because i'm an idiot and didn't get it tuned.
so i parted it out and used the money to buy a good running sr. live and learn i guess. anyways, i've been saving up for new wheels and areo and paint. once my car looks nice, maybe i'll play with the turbo upgrades again. oh yeah i'll be replacing all the suspension on the car as well, everything is about 3+ years old and its time i get with the program and get some newer, nicer parts. ummmm thats it.
expect more updates this time around, promise :)

s15 oil return
and some other small tidbits.
included in the pictures is my gt2871r!
also i finally got my long sought after nardi wheel.
i had this same wheel years ago in my old car. it was a gift from my girlfriend.
well that car was stolen 2 years ago and along with it, my prized nardi.
after lots of searching and headaches and shit. since no one in the US carries this model nardi. (or just didnt want to bother with the effort of getting it) anyways long story short i had a buddy of mine source one out for me, and also get me a set of 4.3 gears. so here is a pic of the nardi. no shot of the gears, they're in the garage. and im lazy.
model is a gara 3 type 0. i've got it already attached to my FET quick release and ready to jump into the car as soon as its running! yay!

xanga seemed to be for weird anime fanatics. ugh.
and myspace is just so, fake.
i love cars.
mostly japanese sports cars.
mostly nissan s chassis.
this thread will mainly be about cars.
mainly my s chassis. i like to think that it is pretty badass.
i will put whatver i like on here.
i will talk alot of shit.
i will speak my mind about shit.
i may even take a shit, while writing about shit.
if i feel like posting up other shit, i will do so.
alot of people post alot of pictures.
i may do that sometimes.
i do have a pretty sweet nikon coolpix L11.
8.1mp of fury. respect.
it takes very shitty pictures. HELLA shitty. for you norcal heads.
anyways, i figure i should start with pictures of my car, taken with my craptastic camera.
i know this is like, the WORST action shot ever so, i apologize for the ugly.
my s chassis is daily driven when it runs.
...which isn't too often.
i'm a firm believer in if anything is worth doing its worth doing right. i don't half ass anything on my car. i take my time and do it right. i don't support knock-off companies or brands. yes i have a couple knock-off parts on my car. no i did not buy them. yes i will replace them when other major items on my list are finished. as of today i am in the middle of a turbo system upgrade. with that being said, this is what i am upgrading to:
garret gt2871r .64
tomei expreme manifold and elbow
taka oil and water lines
hks adjustable wastegate
DW 740cc injectors
nismo fuel pressure regulator
apexi power fc w/ commander
apexi power fc boost controller add on
greddy intake system for t28 style turbo and z32 maf
i've already purchased about half of that stuff. there are various other bits and peices not lsited, but you get the gist of everything. name brand tried and true products, no expense spared. can i afford this shit? barely. but just beucase i'm poor as hell doesn't mean im going to cheap out on a high quality product. fuck knock-offs. fuck fakes.
besides working on my car. i love to drive my car. anywhere anytime. weither im just going for a cruise around town or i'm going to a track event or whatever, i love driving.
i love driving in the hills and canyons. i love the beautiful enviroment it's in. i love the ever changing dips and dives and rolls and elavation changes. there is somethign about driving in the mountains that you can't experience anywhere else. and since i live in the san francisco bay area, i have literally hundreds of miles of roads at my disposal. i love drifting. and although i havent been able to go to many drift days, due to either lack of funs, or lack of a running reliable car, i try my best to get out there and let my ass loose. i completely suck at it and have no intentions to ever do anything with drifting than to just have fun. i love going balls out and just hucking the car around like a 12 year old in the back of an unmarked van. i hate corporate anything and i hate sell outs and fakes and people who just do shit for money. i autox alot. not really a favorite thing of mine. but there is a semi-local autox group based otu of monterey that has events every month, so usually its easier to get there and do that. anyways i dont really know what else to say at the moment. i love driving. love love love it. drift autox mountains road racing whatever. i just love being behind the wheel. don't really like drag racing though. it's too much of an ego sport. it just boils down to who has more money. plain and simple. so no thanks to that. anyways thats all for now, i'll write more when i have something to share. seeya!
