Hi guys so here's my build thread for the badly named 'swagon' however I've taken the name frankinstine to me it as its a mess of different cars so far.

I've had the car since august 2015 and it was completely stock didn't come with a back of a airbox so oil was grim and was pretty rusty an dirty.

Some facts about my shuttle;
89 plate 
D14a1 engine dual carbed
auto trans 
bought it with 80k on the clock now has 90k.

Mods I've done so far.
General service every 4000miles (oil,spark plug, fuel filter, coolent flush, air filter)
After market radio
New disk breaks
New pads all round
421 eBay manifold
Trumpets made for carbs
Meister R coilovers
Spunk 2 camber arms (eBay special)
Manual conversion with eBay short shifter and poly bushed.
Rear speakers installeded
"New" door installed
Clean door cards (without fag burns) all the way round 


Mods to come;
D16z6 head
Fuel pump and regulator
New fuel lines
New vac lines
New wheels and tyres
New bumper
New rear tailgate.
New mirrors
Carb service
Roof rack install (polish)
Boot build
Battery relocation
Respray or wrap

And many more!

If you want to know about anything I'm doing let me know il try and advise!

Image
Image

And eBay special spunk 2 camber arms
Image
Image

Got a new 421 header that hangs way to low
Image

Got a gearbox offconversion from another member.Image

Bit grubby so gave it a clean and sprayImageImage

Cleaned up the linkages and changed to poly and a red pkastidip coat
Image
Image

I swapped it all out and it drives!
Image

Shortly after snaped my temp sensor and wouldent budge out the block and after using a stud extractor set I made it worse and left a hole in my head so I dexided a d16z6 head would be a good idea!
Image

I got the old head off and this is where I am today!

Any pointers or advice or questions let me know.
