Some more updates today.
As i said I was going to do yesterday I removed the front hubs, drive shafts, old calipers, coilovers, wishbones and anti roll bar. I didn't get the passenger side drive shaft off, or the track rod ends off.
Hubs came off easy enough, so did all the ball joints and the coilovers. I didn't take off the track rod ends as they look severely rusted on to the steering rack, also the boots on the steering rack are all split. Have to consider what to do from here. I think i have a spare steering rack so will see what condition it is in.
The arches, front sills and behind the arches (much like the rear of the car) are in decent condition. The hole cut for the intercooler piping is not the best, will need to tidy that up, maybe find a big rubber grommet for it
Rear of the car looks OK too
To be honest the back of the car was a lot nicer to me, I as have found a few more problems with the front of the car.
A crack in the gearbox housing!
A lot of sealant on the gearbox case and on the oil pan!! I cant think of any good reason why they would be like that!!
On top of that, both boots on the steering rack broken, the rusted track rod ends, the drivers side driveshaft has a broken boot and a lot of in out movement.
I couldn't remove the drivers side drive shaft as i was not sure if it needs to be unbolted?? Can any one tell me?
The front wishbones are not the best either!! A lot worse than the rear subframe was
Can the rubbers at the end of the wishbones be replaced? The bigger ones, they are at the end on the right in the picture? If they cant I may just get a full replacement wishbone, rather than refurbing these ones.
Was surprised to see a Nissan oil filter
I now know what make of Tein coliovers are on it.
Finally just 3 pictures of how it look overall at the moment
Over the weekend I am going to sand blast all the parts I have removed and get them coated
