S14 front on 180 sx

Recommended Posts

hey every body,

 

Ryan Smith here, as you all probably know I had a run in with a vl at the drift festival on Saturday and screwed my front end, i would like to spend a bit more and put and s14 front end on it, I just want information on what is needed to do so and the process of doing it. All help will be much appreciated!

 

Thank everyone!

 

Ryan

Its pretty basic i think. Need the obvious stuff (s14 bonnet, lights, front bar) plus front conversion fenders. Pretty sure most aftermarket fenders are s14a type only, and all fiberglass. Usually 20mm or so wider than stock too . . . If your real handy, u can custom up 180 front fenders with s14 ones to keep it all metal, but thatd be pretty tricky. Up to you.

 

Other than that, just need some custom brackets to hold lights and stuff on I imagine. Im sure if you grabbed all the above stuff youd soon have it figured out anyway, and there is bound to be a thread on here somewhere where someone else has attempted it. good luck!

im sure you guys have seen this but in the members ride section there is a guy doing the same at the moment. he is using a s14 front radiator support panel. which seems to stick in place of the old one easy enough.

 

this gives you all the headlight brackets.

 

ive seen people do this before but cant think what way they were doing it.

 

 

by the way it will look grate regardless. the old bride 180 with the s14 front was probably my favorite car in d1 for quite some time.

Oh and while i think of it, i 'think' u may need to use the 180 bonnet hinges with the s14 bonnet? or something like that. I guess dont sell any old parts till ya conversion is done, then you'll know what you dont need anymore :P

Yeah, I was going to suggest going an S14 rad support panel. Makes the whole headlights thing so much easier.
