Wow. Looks like you pulled it out of the grave and gave it a new life. Car looks good. I love s13 coupes and yours is a prime example of clean

well done good sir.
its amazing what a new carpet and seats can do to completely change an interior.
Get some bricks and you'll be set. Nice build.
@blessthekellen yeah totally but we did replace the dash and new door inserts and glovebox and shift boot, new oem floormats too. super stoked on how simple and clean the interior came out. thanks @chunter, yeah i like bricks but im stickin with these, seems like everyone who rebuilds goes with bricks and a gtr grill. i like this look.
so on the way to the meet last night my oil pressure sensor decided to snap off my block and drain my oil for about 5 miles. made it to the meet, made a quick trip to 24 hr autozone for supplies and a buddy at the meet helped it it plugged and up and running again. motor seems to be fine, no knocking or smoking so lets cross our fingers.

awesome dude! i like seeing s13's being restored from something so messed up to something super clean. keep up the good work!
thanks guys! just got my JDM rain guards in today with original box and install hardware. and my new wheel came. Car should be done in next couple days, had to get my Idle Control Valve changed, my oil pressure sensor relocated. should have some new pics in the next couple days.

The ups and downs of owning car..... Great job of restoring, the car looks great... Did you order a new rota or new wheels??
