Watsup everyone, not really a new member on here as I have been for like 2 years but I finally have a 240 of my own. I registered on the site forever ago because 99.9% of my friends had 240s and I was peer pressured into doing so.

My name is mark, im 23 and live on the northside. Currently a service advisor for kia, so if any one has a kia for a daily lemme know and ill take care of ya! I've been in Houston since 2010 and have always been randomly popping in and out at meets and shows.

Anyways, my daily is 2007 Saturn Sky Redline, you may or may not have seen it always randomly covered in plastidip. Yeah that's me.

Just picked up my s13 hatch earlier on in the week and have began to make some progress on the reassembly, because I really don't consider this a build. Right now the car is gutted, no engine or trans or interior. its surprisingly in decent shape though.

Picked up a dual cam for dirt cheap, have it all painted and starting to go back together...the body is in the process of getting prepped and this should be a fun little car. No plans for a powerful engine right now, just gonna throw it together with cheap parts/freebies run a hydro ebrake and beat its ass...mainly got the car to keep miles off the sky.

ill post some pics when I have some time, right now im just at work.

will do. looking forward to getting this thing running. hopefully itll be one solid color by the end of this weekend and the bay wont be homopink anymore. I got tons of freebies from my buddies so its just a matter of getting stuff in and finding time.


im getting more and more stoked every minute. hell, I didn't realize how cheap stuff is for these cars when youre not trying to build a fd spec car lol.

thanks for all the welcomes. will get some pics up Monday, im gonna finish priming and blocking the body panels I know im gonna use tonight and paint them sunday, weather permitting. hopefully by the end of January itll be out on the streets!

today was one of those days I wish I was already driving it. my sky almost got submerged at work lol I picked the worst parking spot, the water rose to about .2" below my door. that crap was a little scurry.

alright so heres some pics as promised. its still a heap of crap, but its my heap of crap. the last car I BUILT from the ground up was my mk2 vr6 powered jetta, so this has been a lot of fun for me so far. the shell is painted, the bay is painted and cleaned up. gotta wait for it to dry, gonna wet sand and buff it and see how she turns out. gonna start reassembly on the motor this weekend and try and get the trans and clutch and flywheel to the shop too and get it dropped in. then the fun starts on the interior.

its just gonna be a stock dual cam ka for now, maybe next year ill go 350 or something, idk. for now its just supposed to be a beater that's slowly going to have parts put on it. the hwole interior floor will be bedlined, as well as all the exposed sheet metal. I do have a full interior I will be putting in it and 2 bucket seats and a harness bar. everything will be ran on a switch with a hidden ignition etc etc, pretty simple but functional.

ill get some more pics of the 240 prolly later today. I work till 7 or 8 usually so by the time I get home its pretty dark. plus its hard for me to roll the car out by myself since some num nuts tried to run stock s13 tie rods on cut knuckles. my front wheels are poked out like a hookers legs. I heard its good for drifts though....
