Very slow progress on the bumper. Got the brackets test fit, going to need to slot the holes a bit.

It is hard to get anywhere when you only have about an hour a night to work on it. Seems like most of that time is set up and tear down each night. Using the shop at work so can't leave it out during the day.

Are you making one from scratch?

Where are you getting your materials from? I want to build one but I'm not really sure where to buy steel not in bulk

I am getting mine from a local machine/Fab shop. They will sell it whatever size I need. Recently I bought a 3'x3' peice of 1/4" plate. They charge cost of material plus the amount of labor to cut it.

Installed some new fog lights with a relay and fog light switch on my 97 Quey.d9c7c5985e61eff11f0fd56996f85a63.jpg467ea53c6a4f585a8c7465472d77f51d.jpg33417f558c08efe3f1c47e28e015d01f.jpg

Tried to put gas in my '02 QX4.  Fuel filler neck had other plans, got about 3/16 of a tank in before it just started pouring out onto the ground.  Called Infiniti and they said I don't qualify for the recall service because it only goes thru 2001, just my luck.   :angry:  Yippee.  It's always something.   :headwall:

I think I'll call my local Infiniti and Nissan dealers/repair shops directly and see if they can do something.  If I have to pay full for it I'll have a local shop do the work.

So that has to be either an injector that's stuck open or is getting an electrical signal full time keeping the injector open... I can't think of anything else that would do that!

 

 

Went back in, and upon second inspection noticed something.. the BWD replacement injectors (along with the Hitachi OEM exact duplicates) DONT come with the 3rd of 3 O-rings. There is the ring that seals intake from injector, injector from top of fuel rail, but there wasn't a replacement O-ring for the bottom of the fuel rail leading to the intake port. Not sure if it was because of this missing O-ring or if the injector actually was bad, but the truck ran like a top after doing so. However, the rich condition caused two other things to happen:

 

IACV is now clogged and truck doesn't like load at idle as a result - just need to degunk it.

 

Hard cranking starts when the injector was wonky ended up killing the starter... yippee... Haven't ever even considered looking at replacing this part, so it looks like I'm going to the FSM and to the forum archives.

 

 

 

On that last note, is the starter a job I can expect to do myself in a few weeknights after work? Or, should I pony up the $$ and make it a shop's problem. Looking for advice from those with experience.

Clarification on my issue starting - I get the "single-click no-crank" issue, which on a manual can be caused by the starter, the starter solenoid, or the starter relay (and only these things, right?) It started with a very slow crank in a parking lot, followed by half-cranks until the starter stopped responding in another parking lot.
