  • Jets303 Official Lp640 BUILD Diary!

    Well guys it time for me to share my build with the community. I've been keeping to myself and just a few members for awhile now but decided I need to share it with the world. Before I start I want to thank a few members that have helped me along the way.

    GreenMeansGo was the only guy who helped me in the begining, but ended up screwing me in the end
    Murci Me helped with a bunch of questions and a few parts
    IKR also helped a lot in the begining
    Vonjet helped a few parts and moral support
    Joe at Inland helped me tons with questions and my body
    And anyone else that helped along the way thank you.

    I started this build late January early Feb and Im about 6 months out. I want to be done this coming summer. This is my first major build. I was really big in the turbo dsm scene for awhile and built a pretty fast car. I am by no means a pro, but Im really good with my hands. I did minimal welding before this gig but have logged over 100 hours of welding now so Im a pro 8)! I have most every purchase logged and I am way under budget. Im still in need of a few parts so if anyone has any front suspension stuff let me know. This build will defy all odds, it will cost way under the average price and will be done in a decent time frame( they all probably say that ). I will finish this build and all the help and comments are welcome. Enjoy guys

      Very nice build so far. Keep going.


      Nice welds for being a newb. Better than mine and I have been "learning" for 10 years now.......

                              Looks very good and nice to hear your getting some help from people here too !!!
                              In your pics there is something of concern that you might want to ask this sites resident plumber about.
                              In no way am I being critical but it looks like you used galvanized pipe fitting in your cooling system along with aluminum rad and unknown metal piping all of which in the long term are incompatible metals.
                              I believe you may want to look into this further.
                              Again great job and hope to see it finished.
                              ;D ;D
