Hello everybody!

So my first post here was an introduction, but because it had a picture embedded in the forum software rejected it so I will make a new one.

Hi, my name is Robert.I live in Lewiston, ID. I have always had lots of cars, most them cheap so when I came across a listing for an 84 nissan 300zx turbo for $900 I was intrigued. So I drove out to look at it and found a 5 speed manual with 100K on the clock, rear LSD,it started, ran,and drove with no problems.The reason it was so cheap? A car port collapsed on it crushing the passenger side of the roof.All the glass except the driver's side door,1/4,and T top were destroyed.$800 later it was on my trailer and I was heading back home. I got it home and removed the interior to clean up all the glass that was everywhere.I left out alot of the interior. All of the trim past the B pillar-gone,the sound deadening mat under the carpet-gone,the mangled rear hatch-gone, the driver side 1/4 window-gone.Enough weight that the rear end lifted up by 2 1/2".Then I put a new windshield and proceed to drive it, and I fell in love with it. Then I noticed a coolant leak from one of the intake crossover tubes above the turbo so I tore apart the front end to fix that as well as tidy up the engine bay a little bit. I knew it would never be a show winner so I decided to turn it into an awesome car to explore back roads with at speed.So I removed the nose cone and built a tubular steel bash bar to protect the front end removing 16 lbs off the front end.Then I switched to the smallest battery I was comfortable running for an 8 lb reduction in weight.The AC was also removed because it was kinda redundant with the car a permanent convertible of sorts. Then I removed the heavy as all hell powered leather seats and traded them for some manual cloth seats.Finally, I built a rear tubular bumper and saved another 11lbs off the already light rear end. Here is it now.
