D22 ground up custom build

Hi everyone,
Bobby from Scotland here. I just started a series of youtube videos of my project. It was on hold for a few years now and I finally am starting it
I thought it would be good if I start a build thread here and share everything I know with you. This is my first project of that scale and I am definitely going to need your help guys.

So about the truck. It is D22 2003 with leather interior and all electric windows, mirrors, ABS, what not.... A yd25ddti engine which is going in the bin cos it has thrown a conrod through the engine block and is a useless piece of [email protected][email protected]... The engine for the swap is QD32eti from Nissan Elgrand and the transmission would be a RE4R01A (4-speed auto ) from Nissan Terrano R3m (Jap import) with the electronic ATX14A transfer case.
The body and suspension lift would be 6" combined (3" body & 3" sus). Already bought from 4x4parts.com in America. Also a ton of other parts and mods. I`ve tried to explain briefly in the first episode what I`m planning to do with the truck.
So this is how the project started up.
Some old photos ( give or take 3 years ago

Interesting project.

Plenty of head scratching to come I guess...

This is going to be amazing.

I am eager for this rebuild.

Na, don't do that yourself, best take it to the garage.

Amazing!
A labour of love...
I get it for a classic car - I fancy a Lancia Fulvia Coupe/Alfa GT Junior or a similar rust bucket - but rebuilding a Nissan pick-up? A man with grande cojones

The first video is out already. A bit boring but I wanted to explain roughly what the build is going to be. I was playing with the camera setting and the quality turned out to be very bad so apologies for that.
The EVO in the title stands for evolution in case you are wondering

Great video, nice detail.

Is that a Mazda 3 at the start, and have you done anything to it?

Na, don't do that yourself, best take it to the garage.

No, its Mazda RX8. Had it for a short period just a curiosity for the rotary engine

I did exactly the same with an RX8. I remember one annoyance, having to work on the oil cooler hoses after the engine is back in the car; bit of a nightmare!
