S15s new front end

Well the front end of the S15 is coming along, aquired an ARC radiator and reused one of my old intercoolers. Did a bit of tubework aswell, not too happy with it but once i get a tube bender i can do this work a lot neater.

Need to find a pewter bonnet, front bumper and drivers guard before i set the headlights up. Sing out if anyone has these items.

Still lots of brackets and gear to go on but its taking shape. Till next post thanks for reading.

  3. Its just stainless tube, nothing too special. I will tig weld it all up when the brackets for the headlights are on. The headlights fit in oh so sweet.

  6. Really digging this Home Fab’ build Nigel! and loving the regular updates, new site is sick.

    Wish I had a welder, haven’t done any tool fab/welding since I was at school, I miss having free use of a workshop haha.

    • Haha, i hear ya, it sucks having to pay for wire and gas, i spend over $200 a year on ARGON for the MIG, oh well, it goes to good use, thanks for your support mate.

  9. Nigel, you’re a machine! I’d love to see what you could do with a datto. New site looks great, I just updated your link on my blogroll.

  10. Looking cool Nigel. Where will you run the wiring to the headlights?

    • Thanks Matt, i cut the entire front section of body loom out and ran it through the engine bay. Its something i do on all cars. When its routed through the engine bay instead of through the guard it becomes a lot longer therefore the loom can run along the inside of the chassis rail to both headlights. Its an easy way of keeping stock wiring yet having it all hidden. Ill do a post on how to do it soon. Thanks for the comment
