Hey guys, been trolling throught the site and admirring everyones cars an drooling over the amazing JDMST meet ups. I'm currently on my P's, and have always wanted an s13.

A good mate of mine had told me about how his mate was selling an s13 with an sr20de auto, so i got him to GHEE up a meet, an later that week i went and had a look. Last weekeend i went and picked the car up :D

All loaded up!

So, we had got a flat tyre an the tyre rolled off the rim on the trailer, ripped the wheel off, only to find the spare wheel they had supplied on the trailer was a holden, whilst the trailer was running a ford stud pattern:evil: So i was ;left on the side of the Gympie arterial with the trailer on the jack whilst my freind zach had to go an get the tyre changed over.

SO after a very long wait, an some very angry and abusive phone calls, we finnaly had got the car back to my home in redbank, and this is how she sits today,

Pre lame write up i know haha. hopefully will be more intersting in the short future.

First plan of atack is to manaul convo it, Buddy club D1 coilovers, prep it ready for a re spray (fresh midnight black off the d40 navara) and possibly some new wheels.

Let us know what you think eh? cheers all:)

Window visors and brick lights, i like :)

How much are the coilovers going to cost you?
Have you thought about HSDs ?

Nice pickup dude, and I actually really like the wheels. I am a big fan of 15s on S13s, and was thinking of going in a similar direction with mine (Tyre shine transforms a car with that much profile :) ). Needs 'moar low' obviously, but all in good time eh?

Be sure to say hi at the next JDMST meet you attend!

PS: I can picture her looking very nice with a good bath. :D

I actually took the window visors off, starting to regret that desicion, however I only need to get new mounts as the sheilds are still all G, just the mounts were weak as piss! I'm thinking of going Buddy club D1 coil overs as my mate had them in his 32 over in NZ an said he loved them, an have got a price of cartel australia an will most be going with their quote thet have given me, so most likely will be going with them

Very tidy, only 1 crack in the dash, so cant complain at all, an came up very neat after some cleaning for about 30mins work.

Oh yea an after saving like no tommorow, an budgeting myself very tightly for an apprentice on shit wages, i went all out an got this.... I'm sure you can all guess what it is.... (Iphone pics; sorry for the shitness in quality :rolleyes: )

Was chasing a newer and better condition sr, with a manual box behind it, but this came up, an well..... would you pass an RB up at a low as price?

I went an looked at it running whilst it was still in his 32, an run mint, true. So couldnt say no :cool:

I shall throw another update up, as more progression happens, but thats it for now. might go get some better pics an throw them up.

Peace ya'll....
