Sounds like me when I had my SpecV, waiting for parts and buying what I felt was best once it was available.
I like how your car is looking and coming along. Would love to see the underhood/engine bay in some pics.
I'm not a fan of the B16, I drove a few before deciding to just get my Frontier (07 CrewCab). But I did like the 200hp stock QR25 and the shifter location (reminded me of the '02-03 Civic Si, which I also liked how the shifter was). Not a bad car, but compared to what else is out there, it's too tall and too heavy. And then compared to a B15, there's no competition, I'd take my 145hp SR20 over the 300lbs of added weight, van-like roofline, etc just for 35 more hp. And especially comparing to the B15 SpecV, this car doesn't have 'it'.
I could overlook the cons of the B16 if Nissan would just get a f'ing clue and give the Sentra a independent rear suspension!
Either way, your car looks good, keep it looking clean and simple, and you'll keep having my respect.
