Been building on 1870/2000 for some time, you may have seen some of my random posts. I should have started this build log awhile ago. But I am bored and drinking tonight and have absolutely nothing to do. So, it's long, hard and still not finished. Hope you enjoy the few minutes looking this over. Constructive criticism and opinions are always welcome, please voice them.
Also, many of these pictures are fuzzy, I am sorry, droid cam and a jacked up digi cam. Also, many of the photos are out of order. I normally post updates on my FB for the few of my friends I have. Posting this mainly as a "history" on 1870 should anything happen
The collection... The DSM's past project donors, the VR4's are keepers.
Her true age:
Pressure wash the engine bay:
She came to me with a broken transmission and busted t-case. I also did not like the clutch my brother used.
Her new transmission was shipped from a con (tried to jack my payment). The t-case output shaft bearing was missing and needed to be replaced. Yes the outpust shaft slid right out. 1870's old transmission provided the necessary parts. The oil seals were also shot. But shifts like a dream
Jump ahead. The differential went out on me and was swapped out for a DSM 3bolt LSD.
Ok, F this, time to get crazy. If i replace enough parts it shouldn't break right?
Fix little chit.
My brother rounded off the fuel line one day, 5+ years ago. So we have been using rubber hose in place of it. Time to install some an fittings and a steel braided line.

I fabricated a battery tray because I used the Talon/DSM intake. I am not very good at fabrication but i think it turned out well.
Kenwood Dnx5120 navigation system, MTX Thunder55 (10" 150-300rms sub, max 600) with my generic hiltron 800watt amp. I am not really into hard bass anymore but i wanted some background bass to support my wide variety of music.
