started like this

Green Booger Build 001-6

NEW CHASSIS TIME!

so me and my cousin lost our heated car shop. so i had to make the garage at my house bearable in this stupid cold weather.

for now i got some poly and did the entire ceiling and picked up this handy little propane heater. it stays around 8-10 Celsius inside. not bad for no insulation. yet.

Green Booger Build Decemberupdate001
Green Booger Build Decemberupdate004

so on the way home bringing the new car back it snowed like 3 inches and made a mess of the car.

Green Booger Build Decemberupdate002
Green Booger Build Decemberupdate003

so i decided before working on it i wanted to clean it up so i dont turn black leaning over it
(the thing on the rear bumper is a come-along. we had to use it to get it into the garage)

Green Booger Build Decemberupdate005
Green Booger Build Decemberupdate006
Green Booger Build Decemberupdate007
Green Booger Build Decemberupdate008

so the n1 hood lip had TONS of glue and **** underneath. took it off and cleaned most of it off. im gonna keep it off. i think they look dumb.

Green Booger Build Decemberupdate013

i also took alot of pics of the parts for sale. look for my thread if you need some gtr body parts or suspension parts.

winter plans:

fix body and repaint with green. was gonna do red but im liking the green. lemme know what your guys opinions are.
take out rear end and replace with z32 one. all a/m bushings and arms.
paint EVERYTHING! i dont want rust or pealing or scratched paint anywhere.
install my other wheels, coolio parts and motor.
install my origin rear bumper. buy origin sideskirts.

started with front right suspension.
installed new spacers 20mm's
Green Booger Build Update001-2

coils bolted and i popped some vacuum caps on the bolts. looks cleeeeaaann.
Green Booger Build Update002-1

wheel on. now wait a sec that caliper looks fuckin close to the wheel...
Green Booger Build Update003-1

holy shit it is close. couldnt even get a credit card in there.
Green Booger Build Update004-1

same thing happened with the left side.
Green Booger Build Update007-1

now could finally drop it on the ground. looks high. needs motor!!!
Green Booger Build Update008-1

now to change the silly rubber steering bushing. somewhat a walkthrough. i recommend this upgrade for anyone.

removed all this crap
Green Booger Build Update009-1

got the bottom part off.
Green Booger Build Update010

now in order to get it on i had to pound these studs/bolts out.
Green Booger Build Update011

bolted on the the shaft and sliding in the bolts that i hammered out earlier.
Green Booger Build Update012

update. starting of rear subframe build

got my subframe bushings. thanks bings!!
Green Booger Build Update001-3

also got my poly urethane complete bushing kit.
Green Booger Build Update002-2

so i started off by pulling the hicas balljoints while on the car. figured it may be easier.

started like this
Green Booger Build Update003-2

now about a year ago or so i made my own custom puller for pulling off the tie rod and for pressing the balljoints out
Green Booger Build Update004-2

works like so for the tie rods. just use a rachet to tighten the big bolt. sooo easy.
Green Booger Build Update005-2

this one was ffffin tight. it shot off and smoked me in the knee. landed where pictured.
Green Booger Build Update006-2

one reason the balljoints suck. boots rip really easy. such a fragile system.
Green Booger Build Update008-2

works like this for the balljoints. same thing tighten the big bolt with a rachet.
Green Booger Build Update009-2

not exactly centered but works fine. you can see in this pic how it sits on the hub better
Green Booger Build Update010-1

progress
Green Booger Build Update011-1

even more progress
Green Booger Build Update012-1

out. this puller is amazing. def one of the best things ive ever made.
Green Booger Build Update013-1

now i skipped all the bs of removing the subframe. i was irritated with it lol.

subframe down
Green Booger Build Update014

pulled to the front of the garage. wow its dirty. 1/2" caked on crap.
Green Booger Build Update015

bye attesa. i dont like you nor need you
Green Booger Build Update016

then i got to filling the hicas ball joint hole with my new poly bushings. couldnt resist. :p

everything is supposed to be lubed with this crap. its some nasty stuff. i decided to wear gloves. so it didnt get everywhere.
Green Booger Build Update017

lube lube lube
Green Booger Build Update018

poly in. time to push in the metal sleeve.
Green Booger Build Update019

big c-clamp does the job perfectly.
Green Booger Build Update020

done. i like it :p
Green Booger Build Update021

many more updates to come. the subframe is gonna be legendary.

Green Booger Build Update004-3
Green Booger Build Update005-3

next i started doing the rest of my bushings. 3 on each hub. still got the lca to do.
Green Booger Build Update006-3

Green Booger Build Update007-3

Green Booger Build Update008-3

now time to remove the abs sensors. i deleted it longggg ago.
Green Booger Build Update009-3

Green Booger Build Update010-2

yeah...... its a mess.
Green Booger Build Update011-2

and what i did tonight. painted and installed aluminum bushings in the subframe. it looks like **** by the diff mount because i never painted there. im gonna use something a little more durable there.
Green Booger Build Update012-2

another view of it.
Green Booger Build Update013-2

Finally an "update" reason for quotation is that it isnt much.

tonight is the first time ive worked on this car in quite a while. also ordered a bunch of parts for it for a healthy update next week.ish.

been working on this thing lately.

had to do accord headlights and a different front bumper for the upcoming oop.
this will be my all year daily. its awd. should be decent in the snow.
Green Booger Build Update005-6

now i got a couple things a week or 2 ago.

first i got a suede e brake boot. looks and feels awesome. (suede shift boot i got last year)
Green Booger Build Update003-6

also got a teal bubble shift knob. (had to hold it. trans obviously isnt there)
Green Booger Build Update004-6

got a couple stickers. couldnt resist putting em on.
Green Booger Build Update006-6
Green Booger Build Update007-6

now i started to actually work tonight.

took off the front cover and painted the cam gear flat black.
Green Booger Build Update002-6

also took these off and painted em flat black aswell
Green Booger Build Update001-7

now to start taking everything off to get at the timing belt. good ol impact
Green Booger Build Update008-6

now you dont take the bolt all the way out as you need to use it to pull the front pulley off.

had this puller from doing a diff in a gm. all i have to do is drill 2 holes the width of the bolt holes on the pulley.
Green Booger Build Update009-6

just like so.
Green Booger Build Update010-4

off. nbd.
Green Booger Build Update011-4

everything off and new belt placed on.
Green Booger Build Update012-4

how to properly install and align a timing belt.

put the engine at tdc BEFORE taking old one off.
once off slip the new one on and make sure everything is aligned as shown below:

Green Booger Build Update013-4
Green Booger Build Update014-3
Green Booger Build Update015-2

tensioned and now can start putting it back together.
Green Booger Build Update016-2

bottom cover and pulley on
Green Booger Build Update017-2
