I'm super excited to get my car back Raven and I have been talking and my old red s12 has the 18det in it and once he is done with his current project he will be wiring up the red car then we will be pulling the stuff of my old black car that I bought from louie i.e. the rear subframe with iggy's first camber fix and welded diff with 1 piece Drive shaft which also has the rear suspension done. also going with manual windows instead of the power windows. I can't wait till I'm back behind the wheel of one again... I'm gonna start with the s13 front suspension conversion and figure out what brakes I want. once I get that all set up I'm going to focus on the motor, or paint I'm gonna sand it down and prime it and atleast it'll be one color until I figure what color to actually paint it I don't think I'll go black again maybe the blue the car comes in. who knows. lol I have so many ideas rolling around in my head it's not even funny.

Went by on Saturday in hopes to pull a bunch of stuff off the car started with the front suspension which was going well until the last bolt on the pass side didn't want to come loose smh I hit it with some pb blaster and and am letting it sit till I get back down there on Saturday again... hopefully I can break it loose and get the pass side out then I'll be pulling the manual windows and the seats along with the fuel pump...and the mark 2 lights.. then the rear subframe.

So another day at Ravens. I bought a 1/2 inch impact gun and I got the bolt to the suspension off.  I don't know why I didn't get one sooner lol Anyway got some work done pulled the windows and window assembly for the manual windows also pulled the grant steering wheel that was on it. I was in the process of pulling the fuel pump assembly which housed a Walbro 255 the plastics on the pump disintegrated lol perks of working on an old car that has been sitting and affected by the hot summers of vegas. I will post pictures as soon as I figure out how. until then feel free to go to my Instagram page Project_Phoenix_s12.

Did some more work on the car. Pulled the old suspension off and and put the tokicos with Canucks springs on its a lot lower and stiffer in the front now no more bouncy suspension. This is just temporary until I get the s13 stuff going. Lifted the rear of the car to prep for the removal of the rear subframe.

Ordered my aftermarket fuel pump. went with deautchwerks (sp?) because David Carroll said it more efficient and quiet. Hopefully it gets here by Saturday so I can install it in the assembly.

So I got the rear subframe out of the red car and moved but ran out of time to get the rear subframe out of the black car just need to remove the brake lines and then it'll be ready to move to the red car and install.

Not much progress. I swapped from power to manual windows. That's about all I did. I am however looking for a full dash with mounting hardware.

Do you have a dash currently? I've seen some pretty good restorations on dashes. Flocking is a good option and can make an old crappy dash look pretty dang new.

No, I don't currently have a dash but Eternalswap (Alex) has a parts car in KY that has a pretty clean dash and center console it's blue but that's ok I was thinking of dying it or painting it some how to get it to match what I want to do maybe I'll sticker bomb it lol or Have it dipped.
