QQQQBall's "RE"Build FR-S Thread (PIC HEAVY)

Figured I would start a thread so I could have something to look back on when it's all said and done -

I'm a true believer in "Built not Bought" and tend to take it to the extreme.

Since most of us buy a car and modify it the way we want...why not by a car that was declared "dead" by the insurance company and bring her back to life the way you want?

1) It'll be cheaper in the long run (just more time consuming)
2) You don't have to feel guilty about removing perfect OEM parts

Bad news - the car is tainted for life with the letter "R"...

My most recent rebuild was a 2007 350z Nismo #114 out of 1,608 - here are some pics of that journey (sold in 11/2012):

Side note - I'm not the guy that crashed either of these!

Don't remember what I sold, but glad I could help! Can't wait to see your progress.
As for suspension, I went with SPC LCA's because they're low priced. If you want coilovers good for DDing then I can recommend SPD Pro-Street coilovers. If you're looking for performance/tracking then I'm sure someone else can point you in the right direction.

That's great to hear. Hopefully the radiator treats you well.

I'm glad you make a valid point on a rebuild. I bought my car new Feb 2013 and threw a piston rod back in October 2013. Unfortunately, Toyota would not warranty the engine issues (long story short, lol). Last week I finished my car with the engine rebuild, tuning, parts, etc. and finally got her back on the road. The amount of changes I did would have been more budget "friendly" if I were to buy this car used or rebuilt a crashed one. With the growing support for this platform and the amount of damaged FRS/BRZ parts out there I'm sure this will be a very fun and rewarding project for you.

Best of luck on your build! And thanks

The original owner found me after I had already sold it looking to buy it back...He told me he was going 120 in the rain on bald tires, slid about 500 feet into this fence (these are his pictures)

Not him then. Guy lives in the Hartford area, where I'm from.

Anyway, if the car is going to see snow, steer clear of the cheap, aluminized-steel shock body coilovers. I've had an excellent experience with RS-R Sports-i coils... and my KWs lasted multiple CT winters while I was there.
