Well, after an exhaustive
search to locate a chassis that i felt was worthy of what i am wanting to do to it (i.e. PERFECT)... I've finally located and made a deal on the chassis that is to become my next project... something entirely different... And it was RIGHT under my nose the whole time... actually, it has been sitting 20 feet away from me for about 4 months... (isn't that always the case?)
Introducing.......... another Y49 disaster, painted in sheeps clothing as ITR Yellow:
Link to more detailed pics:
So, here is the story of this car... basically, it is a customers car that has gone through a lot of iterations.. he now has a child on the way, and is getting married, so he bought an EVO, and is wanting to part out the car. I decided to call dibs on the chassis and a couple other odds and ends
The chassis is an '88 Si. The roof has been cut out, and replaced with an HF roof, and HF headliner. It already has the chassis work done to it cage-wise that i was going to have to do anyway, and it is already parked in my shop.
So, now the work begins..... what work you ask?
Going to sompletely strip the car, sandblast the entire thing, and repaint it inside and out. New color? Undecided
It will be receiving a K20A2 motor, fully built of course. Turbo will be initially a GT42R, but only for racing... i'm going to have a much smaller setup for streat driving.
Exterior will be a JDM front end conversion with VIS EF9 knock-off mugen front bumper, and wings west for the rest of it (already have it). The car already has full GSR brakes, and a bunch of other stuff done... its set to jet.
Man, i'm so giddy right now
lol... I've been wanting another CRX for the street, and now i have one... and this time 'round, its gonna be absolutely awesome! If anyone thought BBT was neat, wait till this one is done :twisted:
