Out With The Old… In With The New For Blanche

Just a little update on what’s happening currently with Prjkt 240SX Coupe “Blanche”. Work these past two weekends concentrated on removing the original KA24E engine/transmission/wiring, cleaning up and painting the engine bay area and getting the SR20DET package installed.

Since the Volk EVO 3 wheels from Japan came a little while back, a little test fit was done to see how they look on Blanche.

Wheels make all the difference in how a car looks. It doesn’t matter. All vehicles benefit from a well-suited tire and wheel package. In Blanche’s case, these EVO 3 wheels bring out that “feel” that is characteristic of original 2-tone 240SX. As it stands, not too many of them are around, and much thought is being given at this point to retain the 2-tone OE paint scheme. We’ll see where this goes, but at this point everything is progressing in the direction we want it to.
