  1. The bracket that bolts the upper control arm onto the frame decided to snap right at where the bolt goes through so had to swap that out today. Stole the one off the hard body I have in my yard as a parts car. While doing that found out both bolts that hold my caliper on, on the passenger side front decided to call it quits and left at some point. No indication that, that had ever happened so that was interesting to find out. Been using the truck daily and still wheeling it when I can so I've been neglecting it too much. I also think I've decided instead of doing a whole cab swap of a hard body to the path I'll just chop the back section off and weld it onto the pathy. Seems like it is an easier solution than swapping the bodies and rewiring everything in my mind at least unless anyone else here wants to chime in their opinion
  2. Been awhile since I've been on the actual forum, tend to stay on the Facebook side. Been driving the truck again daily still running like a top. Been considering doing a body swap to a D21. Having an actual truck and truck bed seems like it would make more sense for me personally so I don't have to worry about busting out the rear glass ect. Only thing id miss is camping in the rig especially in the snow so still not sure on it. Anyone have any input that uses their truck for work (tools) and to haul things like engines, tons of rock, wood, ect?
  3. I've been doing the same thing while working on my 75 280z. Took the dash out and sanded all the rust off it to paint it. Didn't do a nice embellishment like you did though, I was mainly concerned with protecting from any rust in the future. The new hard line I welded up won't work since Im an idiot and thought it only needed to be ben 45°.when it actually needs to be 90°. Been thinking about how nice it would be to have a 4bt under the hood eventually for the extra torque and mpgs. Too bad it's no feesable
  4. This is &^%*ing dope. Way to make those ugly &^%*ing steelies look sexy AF! Not posted in a long while done things here and there. Cut and made a 45 in the power steering return fitting. Welded it up so it's ready to g in tomorrow. The stock one I bent to fit a few years ago developed a pin hole in it so this should fix the problem and not allow it to happen again tired of no power steering
  5. Scraped the snow off her and put the battery on a charger not too long ago. Cant ger much parts because the virus to make my table. Might start working on my 280z woth cheap things.
  6. If nothing else raise the truck on 4 jackstands, put it in 4wd (low of manual) and stick it in drive or 1st then get out and listen to hear where the sound is coming from exactly
  7. Wouldnt think it would be the rear end since you're driving it around fine in 2wd. Have you tried putting it in 4wd and not locking the hubs yo see if it still makes the thud? That would rule out bad hubs and leave you with the transfer case and diff.
  8. Nice, would love to see the engine put together
  9. Here's one I just had to figure out on my new to me 75 280z, if you have security lug nuts on your car and lost the key or bought it without a key to get them out get a 12 point socket that will just barely not fit over it and hammer it on. Then you'll be able to turn it off with the breaker bar. This is all I fo easily found on the internet but the real tip here is in order to get the lug nut out of the socket get a scrap 4x4 and drill with a paddle bit a hole big enough for the lug nut but not the socket and chisel hammer it out. Far easier than holding the socket against a corner of something while hammering.
  10. Steel ties are a double edged sword. On one end it will protect against things like this, on another hand they have been known to slice your toes off. Better broken than severed. That's why a lot of places dont allow them. Personally I stick with steel toes
  11. Tried to start it, batter is dead and ran it out trying to start it. Thought about cleaning more of the camping gear out of it and didnt. She's ready for winter lol
  12. Got a new bolt in, picked one up from napa and put it in myself since apparently shops wont fo ig around Anchorage. Got it aligned and it still pulls driver which pisses me off at 130$ to align one single &^%*ing tire. Didnt have a choice though so what can you do. Back in canada now dreaming about getting my dana 44 under this truck finally and throwing another grand at all the special crap to do alignments on my own. Tired of shops that screw me over and dont even do @!*% correctly or like last time where I have to tell them how to do their job.
  13. Just got done drilling the bolt out. Came out super easy as I figured it would. Awesome Alaskans helped out and one of them had a bolt with the same threads, doesnt work out the best but will get me to a shop down the street to get some replacement bolts. Super stoked
  14. Well one of the bolts to the drivers upper control arm decided to snap and sheer off today after visiting matanuska glacier. Stoped off on the side of the road and jacked it up just to see that the bolt just got done shearing. Camping off the side of the road tonight.
