Spent the day building the back part of the interior and ran my live cable down the left side of the car, fitted mint under the plastic covers that runs the wiring to the rear. Breaker on order and small battery to be fitted in to the tool box area..

stereo mounted on its brackets, and black dials are coming for the main gauges as I don’t like the white ones..

rear brakes all cleaned and getting painted..

also got round to painting the black NISSAN” on the front calipers..

also cleaned up the rearsway sway bar and bushes come up a treat just need the whiteline sticker...????????

Just purchased the 5 stud conversion hubs, so will be running a PCD of 5x114 set up more choice of wheels and should be easier to clear the bigger brakes on the front

Started to strip the suspension arms and front and rear sway bars removed,

front shafts removed and oil drained, noticed underneath going to need a shifter boot and oil seal slight leak coming out of the shaft area. Need some part numbers.

Rear wheel bearings removed and ready for the 5 stud conversion hubs.
Found most bushes to be seized but rear subframe going to be removed powder coated and re-bushes,

next on the purchase will be a floor press for all the bushes and bearings.

So looking at the pulsar today thinking I really should not strip anymore until I’d finished one section, waiting on parts for the interior so that’s at a standstill, need to order rear bearings,

so I had a moment and stripped the rear, came apart very easy I’ve lubed everywhere to make sure everything can in-done..

stripped subframe down ready for all arms etc to be sandblasted,

ive also got all my rusty bolts in hydrochloric acid to clean up.. obviously in a well vented area while am away at work for a week... ????

So these are waiting for me when I get home.. But along way off installing.. got to finish the arches off and the rest of the suspension components. Also next time I am back getting my mate with a welder to put some tabs of the rear subframe to stop the caster adjusters from breaking away...... as per Nissans optional advice.



Also my Mrs's found the little one playing in the garage... :laugh:

Got the same Coilovers mate. Mine were made in 2011 and are a bit worn out, so I'm replacing them with Fortune Auto 500's, which are digressive damped. I'm excited to see the change.

Managed to spend a day on the R, got the coilovers all fired up which I could build the rear boot interior back together.

also started the battery cables and fit out to the rear tool box area, where the slimline battery is going to fit, fitted the 150 amp breaker in place also.

new re-trimmed front door cards in place, drivers window switch missing a clip so will need to be repair replaced to hold in.

Trying to find a stereo connector so I don’t chop in to the standard loom. They stereo can be mounted
