Hi D-series.org long time lurker, reader, and fan this is my first post and my first build thread ive been into hondas for three years now I have an ej8
which was my first car that I bought with my own money. Now I own an ej6 that I purchased as a shell to build from scratch. This thread will be for my hatchback
I bought the shell for $400 plus a thule roof rack. The back fees were $500 but I figured it was still worth it because its a clean title. I bought this a year ago
and worked on it during the summer on my days off. it is now my DD but ull see end results later. This will be a long thread of the whole process all at once
because instead of updating every three months I figured it be better to show u a years worth of work all at once. This car is far from done but plan to be near
finished within this year. so without boring u anymore ill post up the pics for ur viewing pleasure

Pick up day :)





damn missing the expensive window




yea cleaning this is gonna suck thank you half ass painter lol

Enough of of that lets look at the heart that I built with you guys as resources (my first build ever, also first time taking a motor apart)
I bought a D16y8 motor that was an 2.5 hours away for $300 complete with tranny wire harness axels etc only thing was cylinder three had low compression piston rings were blown
so i decided it would make a nice vitara build. I went and picked it up in my coupe.... yup im an idiot stuffed it in the trunk and was near impossible to get it out after i got home
...never again hahah good story tho.

Dont recommend this at all but i didnt have an option..




getting it out of the car was insane since it setlled in on the 2 hour drive home



out and ready to dissasemble and put on stand



Tranny off (still good)

Some suzuki color I really liked and I added Gold flake to the clear.. didnt like the look so just added the flake to the paint itself
looked way cleaner.
