SHOW READY - 1993 NISSAN 240SX

Hello Friends & Welcome! 

In the mids of a pandemic there is plenty of time to invest in our hobbies. 
Kyle Casper is a 22 year old, St. Petersburg native who has taken advantage of alluded down time to prepare his 1993 Nissan 240sx for a summer showing that will be happening July 5th. 

Recapping the almost one year "in the works", Mr. Casper has replaced the vehicle's body kit, color and finished an entire engine swap. Taking the stock KA engine out and replacing it with a SR20DET.  The build required Mr. Casper to replace almost every single piece of the engine in order bring it to par, along with the addition of a turbo and welded dift.

Casper is a third generation car enthusiast following in his father's footsteps as a mechanic. The vehicle has been in Mr. Casper's possession for the last two years. Since acquiring it the vehicle has received multiple make-overs. Prior to being pink the car was better recognized for it's signature "sea mist" teal.

May 31 - The front and back bumpers of the car are light weight KBD bumpers. Due to the flexible rubber like material the chances physical damage such as cracks on the bottom front bumper are almost impossible. 

May 31 - The vehicle's interior is protected by a suede DashMat. As explained by Casper, it will protect the dashboard from cracking, a very common occurrence with vehicles of this model.
