S14 / M2 Help

Recommended Posts

I've been working on restoring my 74 for about two years now. Slowly because I travel about 60% of the time.

The car is out of the body shop (Regan at World Class Restoration in Riverside).

In any case, I have an S14 that has been sitting for two years and I think I should have it gone through before putting it in the car.

Does anyone know of someone that can do the work for me and install it in my car? I'd like that person to be within 20 miles of Long Beach, CA. I need the help or I'll never get this car done.

Thanks for suggestions!

You might check with Tom/Matt at Ronin Autowerks, located in Fullerton - they've got some good reviews here on the FAQ. (714) 526-8100. And feel free to email me (Ken) for more info.

Great looking car ... I can see why you're looking forward to driving it.

Just finished a total upgrade and modernization of a 72 tii with tons of fab work.

Also building an S14/M2 now.

My builder/mechanic is SCC Motors in Costa Mesa just off the 405. Flavio Vega.

He only does a few cars at a time and does all the work himself. He is very good and prices fairly.

Those are 15X7 OZ three piece wheels. I completely rebuilt them, powered coated, new gold plated bolts, and repolished. I'd say, it looks good, but was it worth it? the bolts alone were $160 from Germany. Then I had to get a special socket from Italy to undo them, which was $125. Labor and materials, I'd say $500, plus the used wheels took it to $1,000. So maybe not that bad for a nice set of custom three piece wheels that not many people will have. Though, I'll have to take the tire size down to 195/50/15 in the front because they will rub.

I have coil-overs in the front with camber plates and still will not fit well with 205/50s. The offset is 20. If it was 25 I think they would fit. The back wheels fit perfectly in the wheel wells though.
