Hi
Have my CL2A about 4 years now.
Was 1.5 automatic
Then rwd Mivec bolted to an evo vi gearbox
Now i have been going all out over past year.
Finally created a photobucket account so will have pics of the progress to keep you all interested.
So far my car has evo Vi running gearthrougout.
Evo IX rear diff & Evo VI Front torsen Diff.
Red stuff pads all round on new disc's & braided hose's, Internal hydraulic handbrake & Evo IX Master Cylinder.
Clutch master cyclinder swapped for Evo IX part.
Primera 2004 2.2 Flyby wire throttle fitted inside the car.

Complete front end stripped.
Genuine Evo IX front panel
Genuine Evo Ix Front bumper & Splitter.
Genuine Evo IX Alloy Bonnet.
Genuine Evo IX Front wing's
Genuine Evo IX Arch Guards.

Door's reskinned with Evo IX front & rear Door skins.
Doors need to be converted to electric window & central locking.
Door cards replaced with Evo IX Part.

Quarter panels reskinned with EvoIX rear door & complete quarter panel.
Rear panel & lights cut out & Evo IX rear panel replaced with
Genuine Evo IX Lights & Boot & Evo viii rear bumper for now
Boot will be either a fibreglass or carbon skin because shape is heavily different
& will be using bronze polycarbonate glass to shape new rear

Complete Dash swap From Evo IX & Centre console.
Bride low max seats & hopefully a nardi deep corn wheel.

Wont comment on the engine just yet.

Hopefully will be the first True evo hatchback ever created.
any advice or comments welcome

Thanks

Stripped one of the evo viii lights today.
Pain in the @!"£
No glue to heat up and split.
Its a dremel job all around the lense.

Image

Then sprayed the inside lense black & fitted the Led Lights

Image

Still have to do the other light & also still have to seal the first lense back together

Okay dash fitted & i will be using the stock mirage blowers & redirectors etc.
Becuase there is far to much work to make the evo ix parts fit.

Also mirage air outlet is a similar shape and lines up just 2-3" below the air inlet on the dash
Welded in steel plates to the middle & section & also at the sides
Really happy with the results

Trial fitted the centre console but gota decide how high & far back the shifter is going.
Drilled the holes in the roof for the evo ix bee sting

Wow. I know wealthy and talented people who wouldn't attempt such a task :shock:

Top marks, I can't wait to see it finished.

great job man !

will the authorities in your country endorse it to be use on the street-legally?
i know what our local authorities will say (& do) if such modified car driven on the street. No point building up such ride here if u cant drive it.


p/s: admire your effort bro, if only... :(
