    This is just incredible!
    Are you a fabricator by trade? And what sort of welding setup do you use?
    I'm envious, such great skill!

    Please keep the updates coming!

    Thanks for showing us step by step, will definitely be following this

    Sorry if I didn't read properly but what are your intentions with this car?
    Thanks This car is going to be engineered and most likely become my daily driver (unless someone wants to buy it and then I might convert an S15 )

    Thanks, it's quite a read haha. I basically condensed my build log on another site into 2 posts When it's finished I'm thinking of taking it to a few JDMST meets, though the bodywork is pretty bad.

    Haha, thanks! There's definitely a lot of fun to be had modifying the mechanicals of a car.

    Cheers man, it's all just practice I guess. If you look at my MX-5 build you can see it's quite a lot less professional looking than this one

    Hehe, yeah I was put onto the JDMST facebook group by one of my mates and thought I'd check out the forum, it's maaaad. Cheers!

    Thanks I'm a mechanical engineering student and just do this as a hobby. I did do a TAFE course on TIG welding but other than that I'm self taught. I used to make miniature steam engines but as soon as I got a car I set about modifying it. The finished product is just so much more awesome
    As for the equipment I have a cheap-ish Chinese AC/DC TIG welder (EasyTIG brand) and I also have an old second hand MIG.

    Thanks mate, I find welding to be a lot of fun. The finished products come together so quickly. When fibreglassing, for example, you do a whole lot of work and it looks the same, whereas fabbing something from sheet metal and welding it together it seems to build up really quickly which makes it more fun, at least to me.

    I'll be updating the build thread most days, though I'm going away from the 24th to 27th for Christmas. Today I'm looking at making the power steering high pressure line because the parts just arrived from the US
