    Dead's 92 Nisan Pulsar GTIR #2... Yes, another one. 11-6-14

    Sooo.... I every now and then troll the Canadian Pulsar forum when I have a few extra bucks and happened to find one in Victoria BC, Canada. It had been hit in the front and totaled out. Well, after talking with the owner and trying to work out a price for the parts I wanted and then not having the funds at the time, I just let it go. Well, 3 months later... I asked if he still had it and he did, but he had sold many of the parts I had wanted, like the motor and tran, but still had the gas tank and a few other random bits. He gave me a really cheap price for the whole package that included the body, doors, hatch, rear sub frame/diff, some interior, front hubs, and glass. All parts that would be nice to have for extras. Also got all the parts for an ABS system. My other car doesnt have any of it. More then likely will still not use it. LOL

    The plan was set! I took the ferry to Sidney BC and drove to Victoria. Picked up the car, and then took another ferry to Port Angeles, WA. Thats where I had my biggest challenge, Customs. I didnt cut the car to render it parts, but I also only had a 2 hour window from one ferry port to the other so I just hauled ass. The boarder guard knew it was a JDM car when he saw it on the trailer. Not sure how, but he did. I went through the ringer with it saying this was an illegal import and I said I would cut it (I had the Sawzall just in case). He said that would not be an option. I figured "well crap... guess I just got extra parts, oh well...". Thats when he took me in the office and he looked some stuff up. I kinda played dumb, but I think he knew I was a veteran and knew more then I was letting on, but I just didnt say much. He said "I say the bumper sticker on your truck and I can tell we are politically on the same page. I was like... "what sticker in on my truck..?" and then it clicked. "If 10% is enough for GOD, it's enough for the IRS". He then proceeded to tell me these cars are being hunted down and not to ever try and license it and that he didnt care if I parted it out, or made a race car, just not to license it and said have a nice drive home.

    So, as of now, this is a "race car" project. It ha 2 years till it's legal and I might try for that if I still have it by then.

    Not much there, but its a complete shell, for the most part. I have all the front end parts already, just need struts and trans and motor. I might just make it front drive for now.

    Pics I was sent from Canada...




    On the COHO Ferry from Victoria BC to Port Angeles WA...


    Mission accomplished! Just outside of Port Angeles at an IHOP. We hadnt ate for over 12 hours. We were famished!


    Unloaded and on the dolly I got from slavik.96




    Didnt realize this car had custom big brakes in the rear! Nice surprise!


    Front end damage






    Good thing I saved this front my half cut!


    Parts...




    Spent a little time installing some parts to condense the mess... LOL




    Rear bumper installed...


    Just to show how stripped it is... LOL

    The GTI-R only came with an SR20DET.

    checkin it out with all the photos. Its super cool you already have one so putting it back together is easier because you can just use the other as an example. lotta work but still wayyy cool stateside. to bad that sweet hood is FUBAR!

    @flashhart. Ionno about a v6 but this car came with most famously a sr20deT engine. Same engine every drift monkey drools over. (very fitting for someone with silvia in their name bwhaha)

    Nothing is FUBR'd if you have a hammer and zip ties. Did you see my car when I wrecked it? Zip ties and self tapping screws and its like it never happened...sorta

    LOL... If you missed the first build... here ya go!
    https://sl-i.net/FORUM/showthread.php?13431

    I got a lot of work done to this thing last night and a little more done tonight. Half the reason I got this car was because I have most of the body parts already. I had the fenders, hood, bumper and one headlight. I got a set of tail lights and the other headlight from Ireland a couple months ago.

    Man I loved your other one and now you have two.
    Pretty excited to see how this one goes, I love little hot hatches, I've been wanting to get a Subaru Rex or a Daihatsu Mira for a long time, can't even afford to work on my car right now so that's just gonna stay in my little dream world.

    Oh nice hose reel haha, looks like tear drops from a 240?

    LOL... yes, the hose reel is an S13 wheel... I do have an upgrade waiting though... An 04 STi BBS thats bent to hell. hahaha

    I have actually got some work done though. I dont get much time these days with family things going on and working so much, but it is relaxing to work on it. I started to rip the front end apart and it's getting close to getting welded back together.

    The damage...

    Let the work begin!









    A little work with the hammer and dolly and it was all good.






    Pretty much all prepped. Just need to do one more cut and fit the new parts...






    This is what needs to be cut... I'll splice it in about a 1/3 up the shock tower.

    Prepping the new/used parts...

    Should have been posting thumbs to begin with... Might fix that later.


    How she sits right now... Just need some more chill time to work on it to get it all finished. At least this part of it.

    haha... yeah, sometimes people dont understand why I got another one or why one this far gone, but I have this thing for saving cars if they are worthy... ALL GTIR's are worthy to me.

    The hood is factory, if you guys didnt know. As for color... I'm not sure yet, but I'm not doing white. I'm actually thinking maybe a blue or maybe green of some sort. As of now it's all black other then the white hood and front bumper and red grill filler.

    Love it, My other car is a b13 sentra with sr20det, swapped the t25 out for the gtir manifold and t28. Haven't quite completed it but soon enough. getting ready to put the trans back in today. Just finishing up a hydro clutch conversion. Then my front suspension and brakes go on and the car will be sitting on the ground as it should be after a few years of picking away at stuff and getting the parts I wanted for it. Look forward to see your progression here! Dave

    I think a dark metallic blue would be cool

    Well, I've got an offer on this car... I'm trying to decide if I want to sell it or wait till it's legal and make more off of it. I do have a stupid amount of cars right now though.
