    However, did get the lowered springs on

    Power steering pump died a few days ago. Will continue to put power steering fluid into the system.
    Last edited by Sev; 11-12-16 at 10:39 AM. Reason: I thought it was the pump at the time but later figured out it was the hose and the pump is fine.

    Haven't had very much time or money to spend on the car. Now it is not running though due to the air compressor locking up and breaking the alternator belt. If anyone knows of anyone selling an air compressor/parting out a car then let me know.

    Did get my car running about one week ago. I used a shorter belt from a b13 sentra with no a/c, and bypassed the A/C compressor. I also did get an A/C compressor from a b15 with a ga engine. From what i saw online it looks like it is interchangeable with the sr20 one, can anyone confirm this for sure?

    I haven't attempted to put the A/C Compressor on the car. But did do some stuff in the last week. The power steering pump wasn't the problem. It was the high pressure power steering hose. I replaced it with a custom made hose made at a local shop (couldn't find oem part except for with an insanely high price.) I didn't take any pictures of the hose or removing it but I did get the car up on ramps/jack stands.


    I also put in an ebay short shifter I had that was originally going to go onto a b14 but never did.
    Photo from under the car with oem shifter(heat shield already removed)

    After denting heat shield:

    And images from top:


    I had bent the shifter back, and it is hard to tell but you can still see in this picture that 3rd gear is hitting the trim inside car(car is in third):

    I also removed the bumper to fix the problems it has mounting

    There is very little surface rust on the bumper reinforcement which you can kind of see in that picture, but i did spray paint over that, just to prevent it becoming worse(not a huge problem in South Carolina, just did while I have bumper off)

    Here are some pictures of how bad the bumper currently is. My guess is previous owner was attempting an oil change or something and just hit the bumper against a ramp or something like that and it didn't cause a huge problem until I got the car.

    Lots of gremlins to take care of before you get into the fun stuff.
    It'll be worth it. Keep on trucking.

    And hello from Worst Carolina.

    I did get the bumper back on the car. Passenger side doesn't look quite right. It's probably about a centimeter off at the most. But it is held on a lot better than it has been since i've had the car, and it isn't noticeable without looking for it. Also my check engine light turned on again. Will see what the problem is.
    Pictures of bumper:


    The bumper is just dirty in that last picture. There is nothing wrong with the paint in some of those spots.

    I'm taking my mirrors to school with me to paint them. I am painting both because the passenger side is kind of chipped and messed up a little bit and I want them to match afterwards. Still going to leave them qt1, although I kind of wanted to repaint them black at first. I haven't taken any before pictures of them I'll try to do that before I do anything.

    Thank you

    So I took my mirrors to school on Tuesday. Today I finished them and they turned out pretty good. I didn't really take pictures before I did it, although I did take some pictures of the driver side one(which was actually the one that already looked pretty good anyway.) This was when I was trying to see if I could avoid painting them and just buff and polish them. The driver side ended up looking really good, but the passenger one, which I didn't take a picture of didn't look as good so I ended up painting both of them.


    My doors without the mirrors in them, the driver's side has a little bit of rust I found that I will fix soon probably:



    And here's what the mirrors ended up looking like painted, I will take better pictures of them if it is brighter outside tomorrow, it was a little bit too dark to get a really good picture.
    Driver side:

    Passenger side:

    And here are some of the chips on the passenger mirror that were in the actual material and I couldn't get out easily, but at least I was able to get them the right color instead of just black:


    While it was still kind of bright, I did hold it up to a clean part of the hood and the color is a pretty good match. I did see that the color is slightly darker, but the original mirrors were actually slightly darker anyway. When I was spraying the base coat I could tell that it was very close to the color of the original mirror and looks pretty close to right. They are very glossy though, due to a fresh coat of clearcoat, and my car really needs to be cleaned before that will look right on it.

    Images aren't showing up for us. I don't think you can use your Google User account to host images the way you're trying to.
    I like to recommend www.imgur.com but there are plenty of other free image hosts to use.

    Thanks for letting me know! I see what you're talking about when I checked from my brothers computer. That's weird though because the earlier pictures I posted the same way. I'll try to go back through and fix that.

    Edit: Just went through and it looks like I fixed it. If you can check and make sure I actually fixed it that would be good. I'm still using google but did it a different way

    I put the passenger side one back on today. There are more chips I noticed today than yesterday(probably because it was darker when I was looking at them yesterday), but it still looks better than before I painted it. I'll probably put the driver's side one on soon. I need to do something about that rust before I do though, but the driver's side mirror looks a good bit better than the passenger's side. The paint doesn't have anywhere near as many chips. In the pictures, you can also kind of tell how close the paint is to the rest of the car. I think it's pretty good especially considering I did it away from the car with no blending. In this picture the car is wet a little bit and the car is kinda dirty as well.

    I still gotta put the other mirror on after I fix the rust, but I also have an accord lip I've had for around 6 months that I gotta put on eventually. I think it'll look good.

    The mirror will be on tomorrow because I actually had a couple of days that were warm enough to spray paint. Here's how it ended up looking:

    It is rough, but not as rough as it was. I used a wire brush on the rust before I sprayed anything. It is also gonna be covered by the actual mirror housing so it doesn't matter that the color isn't quite right or that it isn't exactly smooth. (paint also needs to dry and i'm no good at spray painting in general so i'm happy with how it looks right now.)

    I haven't posted any updates in a while, but not a lot has been done. The mirror obviously went on after I finished painting, and I test fitted my accord lip with zip ties. I need to install it for real some time soon.

    I think that it looks pretty good. Will eventually be going on.. I also took a picture when it snowed a little while back.

    I am considering debadging my car entirely and getting one of the nismo grill copies online. Car was a little dirty but I took a couple pictures of my car that I liked.
