Currently, we are working on PRO2 driver @imonlyhooman #350z. Rear mount cooling system, false firewall delete, and custom tube front are in order to try to keep his #lsx cool for next season.

Had an awesome day for my first trip to IMI. The new @championcoolingsystems radiator was letting me hot lap until tires were dead never breaking 195* a good 50* below my old setup. Thanks for the trip boys. @shogunspeed @drift.boston @e_rock_84 @_tjrc_ #drifting #colorado #sbc #chevy #240sx #s13 #driftcar #v8 #tubefront #madmax

After all this time. She finally has a rear window. Couldn't have done it without @oh.well.fck.it so thank you for the help. #s13 #240sx #racecar #widebody #offset #jdm #silvia #sr20det #rollcage #tubefront #tuberear #fuelcell #rocketbunny #666customs #griproyal #sparco #pyrotect #tomei #mazworx #knightgarage

Here we go again !! This is the start to a new and exciting project for us. Will be going a little bit behind what we usually do and hopefully will end up with a very bad as a new shop build.

The off season may have just started, but Perfection takes time, and a deeper wallet.... but here's a brief update, got my chassis back to straight after finding my strut tower disconnected from my fire wall. More updates to come 🤘🏻🤘🏻 #mywallethatesme #jdsquared #240sx #tubefront #rearmountradiator #zenki #keepdriftingfun #2018prep #fabrication #kdpfab #knuckleheadfab #barneycar

Been a crazy busy month but stoked on how this car has come together! #smithindustries #usingimagination #drift #tubefront #rb #s14 #silvia #toflashforpotroz 😂

Nice and simple tube front setup with removable radiator support bar for @viklahey23 is300. Had some unfortunate front end damage. But we were able to save her for him and get it back on the road. #knightgarage #tubenotcher #tubefront #rollcage #weld #weldernation #migmonkey #weldeverydamnday #is300 #altezza #lexus #toyota #2jz #jdm #sedan ##vip

Wrapping up this dump tube for turbo BMW. Have a good weekend everyone 💪

Progress shots of the tube front end I re did, very hard to get aggressive bar work in the front of the ceff as there nose is really flat. Pretty happy how it came out got to use the pipe bender I made and even painted the engine block for funsies #racecar #cefiroa31 #barraconversion #tubefront #fabrication #nissan #havinagoodtime #paintingshit #driftcar #drift

Tube front and bash bar ✔. She's starting to look like a actual racecar.

I've really been procrastinating with the car the past few months. Bash bar needs to be welded and a couple radiator tabs made up and she's ready for paint🤘🏽

Sooo i did a thing this weekend and thanks @kontrolledkaoz for taking over the gun with the candy and clear so i didnt fuck it up at the end lol. Came out great and im stoked to start putting it all back together and getting the motor in #teamcoalition #shepoppin #driftcar #tubefront #rb25time #240sx #zenki #cosmisracing #enjuku #enjukuracing #asdmotorsports #caged #rb #fulllockautomotive #drift #driftcar #drifting #gktech #origin #custom #slammed #stance #letsgetsketchy #isr #candypaint

With everything tacked in place, brought it home and had a professional help weld it. @andytedford helped with my last cage and frankly I trust his hands with my life more than my own in this department. I'm all for doing it myself unless safety (and passing technical inspections) is a concern. This went very smoothly; it took like 2 evenings and 2 bottles of gas, a vast improvement from last time seeing as how the bottle was smaller. Met a goal I had to be able to weld the front down bars to the A pillars. Just as my fab skills got better, so has Andy's welding skills. I'm very pleased with the results.

Next up was doing a bit of clearance work before the intrusion bars and cutting the front end off. Borrowed an 18x9.5 eff -10 with a 235/40 (40mm BJ spacer too) to make sure I'd have all the room required for big angle with a big wheel. FC's need 2 areas addressed rear of the strut tower, the pinch weld on the firewall which one can just fold over and the tub behind the strut tower (that will be more clear later when I cut it out). Forward I think just one side needs some love taps and you're good to go. What it really needs it more height clearance for a tire that tall. Cut front end off, no real need for anything forward of the strut towers. Nothing suspension wise mounts past the subframe mounts. Then put all that back in and make sure I'm not inhibiting inner wheel clearance with the boxes I built. You'll notice they are not just flat as the other ones look like a taco after a few impacts. Also please ignore the wimpy stock tie rods. Those have since been replaced with ones from the Villains angle kit. Those knuckles were installed for these pics. Mock up with the bumper and radiator to get an idea of where they would have to be and to still have the headlights function before finally bending and tacking the tube front in place. Helps that at the time I was daily driving an FC which meant measuring it was as easy as walking 20' with a measuring tape.

As I said in the last post, this is going to be a build log; Starting with where the old car ended after its roll over. I had a caged shell with mostly cosmetic damaged and a ruined factory front end. Knowing I wanted to tube front the next car I saw this as an opportunity for practice and as a way to try @snailmucus crumple zone idea. First mount location proved to be a bad one, so I moved it out closer to the merge point. We found 1/16th wall aluminum to be the ideal thickness, at about 2-3" of span, as well as the tube must touching the back of the sleeve it's mounted in. Then we decided to see what happens when you have a bad crash, and rammed it into the barrier as hard as possible multiple times until the front end crumpled. If you follow the link in the bio there's a video showing slowmo of the car hitting the wall at different speeds and angles

Making steady progress. Just called it for tonight. Plenty more to do tomorrow.

Might be over it. Pile of shit has a million issues, being fresh off of a big move and seeking new employment has me thinking of letting it go. Doubt anyone would want it though.
