« on: 05:05:52 PM / 25-Jul-09 »
I am new to the s12 group but not to Nissan.  I just bought my s12 for $700 from my cousin and I love every bit of it.  It is the SE and the only down fall is that it is auto and the suspension feels like it is from a Buick and the stock wheels are painted black I guess..  I have always loved the vg motor ever since I had my z31.  It is my daily for now until I can get my z31 back in order.  So I am wanting to do just a little bit to it.  Like the 280zx Tokico struts for the front and the z31 struts for the rear along with the cm springs.  Also if anyone has any info on how I can get the marker lights and grill for it please let me know.  Thank you!  Oh the wiper is now fixed.  Had to get a bushing from my z31 parts car

my guess is the 200 na vs the 300 na the 200 is going to win

Thanks!  The car used to be red but someone down the line painted it gold.  They didnt remove the trim so in a few spots you can see the red but ohwell I really cant complain.

My friend it'd be a hell of a drive for you, but we have midwest meets in Beloit WI from time to time.  Probably about a 8 or 9 hour drive.

I am pretty sure the Z32 diff doesn't bolt in, but it seems you know your stuff so I'm sure you have a plan. And that is a really clean SE you got there
