What did you do to your Pathfinder today?

Recommended Posts

Hey thanks guys, yes well I had to put my other wheels on hold for now since it’s -40 C* Out in the shop. I started working on a different wheel, the flywheel, I wasnt happy with the appearance of it so I coated the inside cast iron part and the outer lip, then just started at 80 grit approach with the emery paper up to 3k grit, then polished with green and white emery, using a dremel then metal polished, Gives a nice mirror reflection, not bad for a 26 year old part.
The other side I left alone except for the inner diameter around the flange

That’s what my girlfriend said about this steering collum bracket with a viking compass and nordic protection runes that gets covered by the dash. Winter in Canada is cold what else to do but powdercoat every thing in sight? For the record I had a leak in an old windshield and that piece must of had water dripping on it awhile because it was encased in rust

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

Flushed my coolant system and cleaned the reservoir. 

Got the torsion bars adjusted so my ride height in the front is normal.

That paint is so clean.

It's nearly perfect with the exception of a couple dings and little patina appearing on the top (but I do like the look of the patina). The entire car is a time capsule it had the factory floor mats and net for the trunk when I picked it up.

Finally got new tires!

1990 SE stock suspension 

31x10.50x15

do I trim the flares or remove all together?
The rears rub during normal driving. No rub in the front.

31x10.5x15 was a stock size. If the rear is rubbing (like over bumps) then your coil springs have sagged.

From the picture, it looks more like some bolts/clips are missing (or the sheet metal that holds them has rotted out). The front of the flare shouldn't be curving back like that.

Put in a new loaded strut due to wallowed out strut mount that I installed a year ago. I noticed Monroe put the spacer ON TOP of the strut mount. Last year I put the spacer UNDER the mount. Has anybody else made this mistake?

I hit several junk yards today. Only saw 4 Pathfinders. Apparently, there's supposed to be a cap on the rear wiper???

Changed the oil. Castrol 5w30 and a random fram filter I found in the garage.

 

Found my exhaust leak, the drivers side pipe to the y pipe, gasket/flange is blown out at the bottom. I have doug thorley headers in the closet for 3 years. So I will weld the flanges shut on these old pipes so I don't die of asphyxiation in the mean time.

Lol, the hell with that. I've never smelled fumes so strong in my life.

 

Also the original 26 year old starter finally gave up the ghost on the weekend. Got that swapped out fairly quickly, way easier on a manual!

Filmed a TikTok, grilling on my makeshift tire rack table. 
I hope to make a production model later this year.
