UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     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.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.


As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

  1. I have one! The Driver's side. I actually took photos of it and I planned to list it on ebay. The thing is really nice, and soft. No UV or weathering damage. I'm going to guess that this Pathfinder was a garage queen or parked in a car port for years. Anyhow I should have grabbed both sides. After market glass, super clean rubber, and plastic spacer included. I got a shipping quote today, and it's $21.50 to ship. So I figure $40 shipped is a great price for it. contact, and paypal is: aaronhorrocks@hotmail.com
  2. Yeah, I didn't know that either. My 1994 Pathfinder, they replaced the fuel pump and sending unit be pulling up the carpet and getting to it through an access panel.
  3. Filmed a TikTok, grilling on my makeshift tire rack table. I hope to make a production model later this year.
  4. CT Pathy, I sent you a message, I have a few options open for you. If you're not interested, please get back to me, so I can make a separate post and offer them to anyone on these forums.
  5. By definition of auto insurance and DMV purposes, anything over 25 years old is called a "classic" This is probably based on the idea that most automobiles are intended to have a "life" of 10 or 15 years. So if someone is still pumping money into a car that's over 15 years old, it's cost of ownership increases unreasonably, so the person is keeping the vehicle for reasons other than cost of ownership - style, practicality, sentimental reasons, etc. So when it gets to 20 to 25 years, it's called a classic. I guess they're right even in my case. Back when I had plenty of money to piss away, and my 1994 was giving me trouble, I was looking at a newer version. The R50 Pathfinders, while having some newer and better things, had weaker components that I had broken on my WD21. So I didn't want a vehicle that I would be more prone to breaking offroad.
  6. I've never seen a Pathfinder with one before, so when I saw this at the junkyard, I pocketed it!
  7. I had a couple listed on ebay for years, and no one was buying them. I might still have them, or I might have thrown them out. I'll have to look.
  8. I hit several junk yards today. Only saw 4 Pathfinders. Apparently, there's supposed to be a cap on the rear wiper??? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQ0QERV5Lww
  9. When it comes to classics, it's best to fix rather than try to find a replacement. But yeah, when my 1994 PF developed a crack and was leaking from the bottom of the tank, cheap fixes didn't hold. Luckily the dealership could still get a replacement tank, and I got a brand new one.
  10. When I bought my M38A1, it had a tank coated on the inside with black goo like that. I took it to a local radiator shop, and had them dip it and dissolve all of the goo out. Unfortunately it caused several holes to be exposed. Advice from there was to get the holes welded up. No commercial welder would touch the thing. Eventually, I found a friend with a welder, who agreed to weld it up, but his demands to "GET ALL OF THE FUEL OUT OF THE TANK!" turned into a shouting match and was only finally stopped when he took his garden hose and filled the gas tank with water and let it run for an hour in his driveway. Yes, this was AFTER coming from the radiator shop that had already dunked the entire tank. And after sitting for 30+ years before that. In hindsight, for a "smart guy", Jim was one of the dumbest guys that I know. After getting welded up, I used 2 motorcycle gas tank restoration kits, that put a white bladder type coating on the inside of the tank to help prevent leaks.
  11. Change the oil. Charge the battery. Put fresh gasoline in. Crank her up and see what happens.
  12. In addition to the Sending Unit, I "bought a whole bunch of stuff", meaning any gaskets, seals, and screws, and plastic bits in the diagram next to the Sending Unit, just incase anything else was bad, broken, etc. To minimize potential down time. it's easy to spend an extra $10 to $20 up front in case anything goes wrong, to prevent several more days of my vehicle being in the shop waiting on parts.
  13. Not sure about that. I bought a whole bunch of stuff, and then had the dealership install it. I can't do much work these days, since all of my tools were stolen.
