1 The everlasting project.... on 8th April 2015, 10:46 am

I thought it was about time to share my.project...
So I bought my first R in 2004,a J reg in Ivory White, and in that time it had been on and off the road for various reasons so after its last stint on the road, winter 2011 I decided to re-shell. 



I bought a black M reg off bob which looked a lot cleaner underneath than mine,that was in April 2013

Not really much progress just a plan and lots of new parts

So after losing interest and motivation due to various reasons including personal stuff,I've now got the motivation to get going on it.
I won't lie I've got a MASSIVE mountain to climb! I've set a deadline of 1st June so I can iron out any problems before the 25th Anniversary meet.
Here's where I'm up to....

I knew my turbo needing refurbing so off it went to Bernie's Blowers for a rebuild(thanks to Gaz's link),which needed new turbine shaft,bearing housing and an upgrade to 360 degree thrust bearing...


Very worn seal groove,bernie said he's seen this sort of wear often with T28's but never in that direction :-/



All back and looking like new...

So next was an unexpected purchase in December was a forged engine out of a well known,on the fb groups, grey flared arch pulsar. So off to bob with my 100k engine For an exchange,I never knew the pulsar engine was such a snug fit in the spare wheel well of a pug 307 :-)

So over time I've been buying parts and lately it's been all front end related....

Whiteline front and rear ARB'S 
Whiteline front underbrace 
Whiteline rear strut brace 
Cusco front upper strut brace 



Also picked up nearly full car powerflex bushes off eBay quite cheaply,all brand new
Had to buy subframe and engine mounts to complete the set.
Also bought the superpro rear wishbone castor bush and also the gear bushes by energy suspension from canada

A few more bits that I've cleaned up and painted,to some it's pointless but I like clean :-D...
Fuel.rail has gone silver so has the whiteline Underbrace to match the front and rear whiteline ARB's and also the Cusco strut brace has gone silver for now. The R33 GTR intercooler has gone back to black.

Looks great mate. Is your R in the garage? Looks like it would be a tough time opening the doors and getting out of the car Laughing

Yeah it's in a garage and space is tight,luckily the roof space is boarded and has lighting,which is where all my interior is :-D

A few more hidden horrors that I've tried sorting without getting dragged into a full on restoration job...



20 Re: The everlasting project.... on 19th May 2015, 9:35 am

houghy_1


So now to start cleaning back,minimum grinding etc then applying Rustbuster FE-23 to any that's left then seal and repaint. A mixture of hammerite and Nissan KH3 where visible...









I painted down the chassis leg where the track rod ends go and give the hubs a little once over even the driveshafts,nothing major just a clean and paint to freshen the look up a bit

Also new OE nissan steering rack inner ends with new tab washers and track rod ends.
Been over to see my old pulsar for bits n pieces including my apexi s-afc,walbro fuel pump with wiring and relay,old washer bottle and battery relocation brackets etc.along with spare parts and nuts n bolts etc

Finally feel like I'm getting somewhere...

Bob's used Helix clutch has been fitted,box and engine back together,but I've left the bastard bolt out,so any future box or clutch issues shouldn't be an engine out job...
Engine now on its mounts,oil separator back on in place if the straight pipe that was there before,changed the piping on the inlet back to the standard piping.
Fitted all my samco hoses to the back of the block.
Alternator on with belt on. And tonight I've fitted my turbo and manifold back onto the engine.
