So there hasn't been much to update with the project as of late. Since my last update we worked on getting the entire interior stripped, including all of the sound deadening. If we are going to reach our goal of 2500lbs with driver, then every little bit is going to count.
Once we finished stripping the car, it went over to Reactive Chassis Co. who is building the roll cage for me. Once we get the car back with the cage in it, we can fit the dash back in and then have it made in Carbon Fiber. Also we can then work on getting the seats mounted and braced in the car.
Along the way here, we have been receiving some great parts....
Yesterday, myself, CaviMike and Rick from BTF Racing, Inc. pulled the sr20 from our project twoforty. It took several hours with a couple of breaks in between, but it came out with pretty much no problems. This was the first motor I have ever pulled and with the right tools, it doesn't seem too difficult at all.
Rick is going to start working on tearing the motor down, and I'm going to send some of the engine oil to Blackstone Labs for analysis. I've trailered the car back with me so I can continue to strip the interior and sound deadening. It goes to Reactive Chassis soon for cage work.
This past saturday, my friend Kevin and I deciding to start project twoforty and strip the interior of the 240sx that I bought from Ricky Chu. The strip went very easily and we had the interior out in just over an hour. We still need to scrape the sound deadening from the interior and pull out the dash. In just over a week it will be going to Reactive Chassis Co for the roll cage, so it needs to be ready for him.
