I started this build about a month ago. I have been wanting to do this for awhile. So I picked up this del sol from a friend and went to work. I picked up an RSX subframe, lower control arms, and struts and spindles. Built the rear half chassis for the subframe to mount to. Here are some pics from the start. I will update and add pics as I make progress.

I recently saw pics of this somewhere...you get definite :up::up:....

can I ask though why you wanted to use the subframe....the last RR conversion I saw just used frame rails....why did you decide to take the "harder" route...

anyway great job, should be a sick car...

There are a couple reason I chose this route. I dont like how flemsy and weak the front end parts and suspension are on the eg's. There will be a whole lot more stress on everything in the rear also. The rsx front end parts like the lower control arms, spindles, and the subframe are pretty heavy duty. Plus I can use stock 36mm rsx axles which are stronger also. I knew it would be more work but thought it would be worth it in the end. Here are some more pics.

Very nice, what are your plans for the motor?
Not sure yet if I am going to go N/A or boost. Will definitly be K24. If I can keep the weight down I would love to stay N/A. But I have already thought out an awsome turbo layout for the rear. There is plenty of room.
