     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

      Oh man so nice. I just pulled about 500 miles of driving in the last few days travelling around in over a foot of snow. so epic, i mean really. man its so nice to have some real power in the rig now. i picked up a tow line and hooked it to my rear bumper and was pulling cars up really steep hills and out of ditches for days. so much fun!!!! the house i was staying at is on this crazy steep hill and most trucks could barely make it up and i was towing cars up it!!!...

      hey what's up with that 300zx? I knew it was in some sort of collision, but I wasn't aware it wasn't running. Much less aware that it had been out of commission for some months now.

      I salvaged it from my neighbour who crashed it, then drove it 800 miles to the next province with no front bumper, sucked up water onto the maf and pooched it so he limped it home at 2500 rpm, then he parked it. I completely restored it from the crash and replaced all the missing pieces and she fired right up! still working out a few kinks it runs strong but idles a little high and has a slight miss. checking codes tonight i suspect the o2s are shot and maybe the power transistor unit for...

  11. Feeling like an uber lucky man right now. My other half bought me a 91 pathfinder SE as my college graduation present and it was a total surprise! 1991 SE with LSD, rear discs. The oh so hard to find 4" trailmaster lift, all main suspension bushings done, black exterior with gray interior and its got a sunroof and tire carrier! Oh yeah... it has a completely IMMACULATE frame with ZERO rust that still has its full powdercoat on the frame. Garage kept. Now to swap the VG33E, body li...

      sorry! been working my butt off on my final project for my industrial automation program diploma. we are building an entire manufacturing process from scratch ! so much work !

       

  12. Finally fixed the hinge bushings in my spare tire carrier. Wow what a pain.. upper hinge pin was easy, bottom one took some serious help to get out. Got er all done and no more rattle going over bumps!! Finally opens and closes properly too. It even opens itself once the latch is released! So cool ...

      Don't forget to add zerk fittings and keep that thing greased.

    2. Nefarious

      Nefarious

      yeah thats not a bad idea. Although it does have the little needle fitting spot, I would be a lot more inclined to do it if I had a zerk on there. lol

  13. finished rekeying my locks. finally one key for the whole rig and i can open my hatch glass now and unlock my truck if the battery dies again. lol.

  14. Found a shop to machine my 4wd tie rod adjusters... 35$ cash! New 2wd inner tie rods(40$) new 2wd center link(70$), machined adjusters(35$), junkyard adjusters(free), my outer tie rods are still new.. Total of 145$ for a custom 2wd steering setup.... I think so!!!

  15. Found a VH45DE motor, ecu, and wiring harness for 250$ at the wreckers today! Project V8 300ZX Slicktop is a go!! Pulling the motor tomorrow!!

  16. Got my jeep grand cherokee springs today... they measure to 17" on the dot after pigtails were cut... yellow tags... should be a decent amount of lift. :D

  17. got the intake manifold back together today, tomorrow is exhaust work and rear axle swap... open diff drum brakes swapped for a lsd disc brake rear.:)

  18. I have the hottest girlfriend in the world. She just said she wants me to teach her how to work on vehicles... Dream girl, seriously. lol

      I don't want to start a war on Toyota or anything, but it seems like ALL their cars have cooling/head gasket issues.

  20. Installed the oem steering damper pin from Nissan 19$ and used a Monroe shock for 55$ and Lordco hardware for 3$... Grand total of 77$ and wow... Truck feels so much better driving down the road with 33x12.5 and 15x10 steel rims.. Almost feels like a fullsize now haha!

      I know many people love having lockers but my dream would be for an LSD in the front to compliment the rear...LSD can get you out of a lot of trouble...stay calm and carry on :)
