Bare Bay

Got the last of the stuff out of the engine bay… cross member, suspension and all the associated parts.  Kyle came over for a tad on Sunday and helped me drop the stuff out.  Also got the headliner out so I can hopefully, finally get the JDM headliner and pillar panels.  Then wrap the headliner in Bride fabric like I had planned 2 years ago when I did the rest of the interior.

 

I’m a very organized person when I choose to be… and thank goodness I chose to be on this project. A lot of times when I tear the interior out of a car at work I simply just throw all the screws, bolts, push tabs and whatnot into a magnetic tray. Knowing that I’ll remember where everything goes later. However, my S13 has taken on an all new level of “torn down”. Since there are so many aspects of the car that are apart, I chose to organize and label all the fastener locations as I took it all apart. This should save me a lot of headaches later on.

    Just wanted to say how much I love your blog and the DIYs that you write.

    The last time I rebuilt my valvetrain I sorted and labelled each part the same as you did. However, oil from the old tappets leaked out onto the paper making the ink run right off the edge, leaving me none the wiser when it came time to rebuild, but we live and learn 😀

    Keep up the fantastic work 🙂

    Paul.
