  1. Haven't posted anything information wise or pictures of my pathfinder" Abeona" as she has become known to us haha but now that's it closer to being "done" I feel as though I should start taking progress pictures and documenting so here we go I bought a 2001 le pathfinder that seemed to be rust free, to start building into a light offroad vehicle for back road camping and adventures so far I have installed ome heavy duty Rear springs, medium duty front springs, with ome shocks, after that was done I progressed to remove the flares and discovered the common rusting out issues, so I completely cut out and re welded in patch panels and then decided to paint Raptor liner along and the bottom of the rockers and behind all bumper as well coat the bumpers as well, bought new rain guards as the factory ones were all cracked and broken, installed front led lights for better offroad wide visibility, and have installed led rear back up lights,. Installed a surco roof basket and Yakima cross rails to carry more weight, as well as made and installed a " missing link" to help with body roll, removed the side steps and flares, and have unfortunately had the ECM fry due to iacv failure so I have fixed all that and tore down the top end and replaced everything I could, knock sensor vacum lines, manifold gaskets, serviced and new o ring gaskets on injectors, plugs and coilpacks, new iacv new throttle body gasket,new fuel pump/ filter the works as I want her to be reliable down backroads, have installed 15" wheels with 265 75 r15 tires, tried to install a strut spacer lift but found the CV axle angle was to great and created binding issues so removed and had to trim bumpers and heat gun some fender lining to prevent rubbing. So after all the work so far she has been great and we have and will continue to take her out and explore/ mod post pictures as we go
  2. I recently had the dreaded ECM chip fail after my iacv went. So I decided to replace the valve cover gaskets and all vacuum lines , and all parts that I could access in fear of having to remove it all again down the road, issue is when I first had the truck die on me I took it to a shop and they adjusted the throttle body screw under the throttle linkages in hopes to get it going , but now that I have all new parts etc I can't seem to get the idle right as I believe it is dependent on were that screw is set, so my question is where can I find a guide or if someone knows the steps to reset that screw so I can properly adjust everything else to get it back on the road. 2001 3.5 pathfinder
  3. Have removed the flares to weld in new patches over the rust holes etc and Want to re attach the flares after I have it all fixed but was hoping that there's options on how to mount the flares without using the factory plastic mounting tabs as they seem to collect dirt and grime and eventually create rusty spots, any diy mounts or creativity that you have done to mount these flares back on, would be greatly appreciated
