Project Rice-A-Roni...

Recommended Posts

Well finally found a DD/Rolling Project/Beater....

Rice a Roni:

1996 Nissan 200SX

4 banger 1.6

Miles U.K.

5 speed manual

$1300

After a while of searching and searching for a DD/Beater, I remembered a friend of mine was trying to get rid of his Nissan. I hit him up, worked on a price/payment plan and now she's mine once again... LOL

A few years ago a bought her from an inpound lot for $300, put in $700 in repairs (both axles, seals, power stearing fix, replaced clutch) and used it to commute for about 6 months, after getting placed back in town (for work) I decided to part ways with her. I sold her to my friend for $1600 in payments and now she's mine once again.

I plan on de-ricing and making her look decent, the interior was so shittastic that my buddy just gutted it... I have all the parts I just have to re-assemble everything after replacing the carpet (it wasn't salvageable). Most of the body work I did when she was mine before, so the body is in pretty good shape.

Repair list:

Replace DS window tract - DONE 7/22/11

Replace Headliner - DONE 7/31/11

Instal carpet - DONE 7/31/11

Re-assemble the whole interior - DONE 8/6/11

Replace all seats - DONE 8/6/11

Replace Broken PS Mirror/Housing

Replace bodykit with stock bumpers

Replace A/C pump (MAYBE)

Paint (Original white)

Later on list:

Tint

Rims

I have a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG way to go before she looks hawt.... right now she's just a hawt mess! :lol:

I've been looking and looking for Sentras and 200SX's in junkyards left and right to pull the carpet, only to find filthyass interiors... I mean the carpets had caked-on stains and most were worn as hell...Finally today I found a 200SX at the junk yard 20 minutes away with a decent carpet.... actually the whole interior... but my funds only allowed me to pull the carpet out and the headliner... I wish I had an extra 150 to go grab the seats out it too! :D

Who ever had the car took pretty good care of the interior... with a minor cleaning it would look brand new (no MAJOR stains).

By the time I was done with the instal (4pm) I had to go home and shower/nap before coming to work... someone called off so I have to work from 10p to 2p.

I'll get some pics tomorrow.

So I came upon some funds and although it wasn't part of the original plan, I went back to the junkyard and bought the seats out of the same car I got the carpet and headliner out of (good thing I stashed them in another car) My seats had to go! :D

As as a HUGE suprise to me everything was 50% off that day! So I got all my seats discounted! Man it was a good day indeed!!!

Hellz yeah! It was one of those good things you dont expect and then it happens.... AWESOME feeling!

I noticed the parking lot was PACKED so right away I kinda knew there was something going on.

Now that the interior is pretty much done I can focus on the exterior... MAINLY the front bumper!
