Got a Subframe, removed bushes sanded it down then realised is was bent :/ Pretty much gave up on it :(

post-90664-0-75468700-1357267915_thumb.jpg

post-90664-0-07509200-1357267934_thumb.jpg

 

Got some Kazama tie rod ends cause my front left one has a fair bit of play in it

 

post-90664-0-67110200-1357268059_thumb.jpg

 

So, I got these cheap smile.gif

post-90664-0-52609200-1357268313_thumb.jpg

 

This is apparently level -.- massive wheel gap up front, I need to get my guards rolled mainly at the rear so i can sack it all round\

 

post-90664-0-52733500-1357268319_thumb.jpg

 

Due to this

 

post-90664-0-11425500-1357268329_thumb.jpg

 

So I got a guard roller and had a go at it smile.gif

 

Worked really well except we had to wind the coilovers back out because the guard roller was to big to fit in there.

 

Plus the inside of the tyre had been rubbing as you can see in the image so we raised it up a bit so there was less camber, need to find a set of arms before I can slam it -.-

 

post-90664-0-55672200-1357268574_thumb.jpg

 

Thanks to Jordy for letting me use his garage, was going to put it on his hoist but he already had his 1200 on it

 

Makes working on any car a heap easier

 

post-90664-0-31563500-1357268585_thumb.jpg

 

So got my Whiteline Sway Bars, forgot to post the front one ages ago, I won it in a Whiteline comp smile.gif the rear I got off a mate smile.gif

 

post-90664-0-89051800-1357268677_thumb.jpg

 

So the Subframe was about to go off for powder coating and this is when I found out it had a slight bend in it plus some more rust... So I forgot about that one, was not going to bother with it anymore.

 

Got another one, Non-Hicas off a mate so I can piss off this lock bar and Hicas tie rods that way I can run Toe rods, mate sand blasted it for me too smile.gif

 

post-90664-0-83493800-1357268774_thumb.jpg

 

Now I have to just get the time to take it down to be coated and decide on a final colour? Birthday is coming up soon, should be getting a full set of SPL arms and bushes.

 

I got some mudguards off another mate dirt cheap gunna see how they look, not sure if they will suit with the current wheels :S maybe later on when I get some decent wheels.

 

post-90664-0-23653300-1357268839_thumb.jpg

 

And I picked up this long block SR20DET came out of a mates S15, so I have two years to learn and build this once I finish off my subframe and adjustable arms and a whole heap of other stuff. Just couldn’t say no for the price...

 

post-90664-0-10730000-1357268888_thumb.jpg

 

So I put the mudguards on, both front and rear smile.gif

 

post-90664-0-78903900-1357269047_thumb.jpg

 

Then I hunted down another Ca Lip and seen that I could put it on my SR Front bar smile.gif

 

post-90664-0-19303900-1357269058_thumb.jpg

 

Resprayed it in a flat back

 

post-90664-0-28803100-1357269075_thumb.jpg

 

At Blaises (blaise_mx6) he owns that Z32 300ZX

 

post-90664-0-58346300-1357269085_thumb.jpg

 

Then I started on my SPL adventure with some Solid Subframe Bushes

 

post-90664-0-50765200-1357269133_thumb.jpg

 

post-90664-0-13511300-1357269120_thumb.jpg

 

Driving along my temp gauge went off, the temp was higher than usual the inline temp sensor was leaking -.- Pain in the ass so a GKTECH coolant neck spacer is on its way smile.gif Got a hose kit seeing as I need to replace one.

 

post-90664-0-76119100-1357269147_thumb.jpg

 

Another night I turn my lights on and one of the cluster globs died frown.gif Have a whole set of leds coming

 

post-90664-0-58348100-1357269157_thumb.jpg

 

Got an engine stand aswell smile.gif

 

post-90664-0-94600400-1357269319_thumb.jpg

 

So resprayed the subframe, primer, blue, more blue then more blue then a heap of clear smile.gif

 

Smashed out the old bushes, tried to put the new ones in had to use the vice as a press after freezing them :/

 

SPL bushes are pretty good the only issue I had was the rear two bushes would not clear the Toe Arm brackets so I shaved them down a little

post-90664-0-28246800-1357269480_thumb.jpg

 

Waiting on Pete from JDM Obsession to get back to me about the SPL arms, can't wait till I get them biggrin.gif

 

Got a R200 off a mate, having a go shimming it my self pulled it down, more on this later

 

post-90664-0-21287500-1357269522_thumb.jpg

 

Thinking about getting a half cage and putting it in with the trim in still like this...

 

post-90664-0-75860300-1357269530_thumb.jpg

 

So I got a spare set of stock Rear LCAs of Jason, with this whole build I have tried to do as much bush removal myself with the help of mates but not taking it to a place to get done to keep costs down tongue.gif

 

Tried to remove these tiny lca bushes was a prick at first but then we figured out a way smile.gif Ball joints were easy

 

post-90664-0-17156600-1357270025_thumb.jpg

 

So many ideas, burn it, drill out the center sleeve then burn it, in the end we got a tiny drill bit and drilled down the side got the jig saw in there cut out the center sleeve out and finally with a cold chisel, a 6 pound hammer and a lot of persistence smashed the outer sleeve away too.

 

Sanded back, primer and some blue, still haven't put any clear on -.-

 

post-90664-0-88548200-1357270048_thumb.jpg

 

SPL Arms arrived biggrin.gif

 

post-90664-0-97789800-1357270059_thumb.jpg

 

Got the R200 in the subframe! Never been happier to see a diff chillin in a subframe lol

This thing put me through hell, I had this great idea I should shim it up as my current VLSD is so loose it is depressing in a SR20DE 180sx pretty much peg legging everywhere -.-

So I followed a guide and ripped it down, added an extra 0.80mm shim from Nissan parts no. 38424-40F60 assembled it then went to go drop the center in, that was a c!@t then I bent a shim being rough so I dropped it off at bears in st marys he adjusted the back lash and did me a new shim smile.gif

 

post-90664-0-85270900-1357270089_thumb.jpg

 

Sits pretty neat, shame GKTECH haven't made some 180SX/S13 diff covers.

 

Then that went in :P

 

post-90664-0-89152900-1357270737_thumb.jpg

 

So, LCA's have new Super Pro bushes and new OEM Replica Ball joints pressed in, eventually going to get some SPL Rear Knuckle Bushes and Lockout kit ten fit the Lca's all at the same time smile.gif

 

But for now, my speedo was about 10% out so I purchased a Jaycar build it yourself kit, assembly was easy but install and setup was a pain because I snapped the LED off at 3am trying to install it because I really wanted it done, missus was ready to kill me :/ lol but all is good now smile.gif

 

post-90664-0-70541600-1357270882_thumb.jpg

 

Then I wanted more low to fill up the front guards so some mates and I lowered it smile.gif Looks heaps better could go some more in the rear, in the end the front is still going to need a tad larger profile but meh for now plus I got Martin at Ground Zero to tint it, looks sick he did an awesome job at an awesome price, recommend him to everyone biggrin.gif plus spaced the hood tongue.gif

 

post-90664-0-21758100-1357270977_thumb.jpg

 

So this is how it stands at the moment, pretty happy biggrin.gif besides the shocking front castor needs another wheel alignment asap bad -.-

 

So I am about half way saving for rego, thinking about HIDS still dunno if I should go 3000k or 6000k? :S

 

Got a tad distracted

 

post-90664-0-83453500-1357271080_thumb.jpg

 

Cheers biggrin.gif

 

If you have made it this far thanks for reading, let me know what you think :)

Although you have already solved the problem of the incorrect speedo, there is a dialpot in the cluster which you can adjust (ie when changing diff ratio) to bring it back in. Just check it agains a gps speedo.

It's been a while, but going by memory, take the cluster surround off, pop the clear cover off the gauges, and behind the speedo facia, there is a blue square with some numbers surrounding a white (phillips head?) screw, only takes a little turn to adjust it. All I did was left the surround and clear cover off, pushed the cluster back in place, a quick up and down the street, stop, adjust, check again.

Was using them just did a heap of work replacing worn out parts, The Kazamma Ends were worn within 12 months :/ Which nuts? Locking nuts? or the Inner ends where they go into the rack?

Thanks heaps man :)

 

I had all the plastics removed then fitted the cage, removed the two rear bars then cut the plastics I just did it without measuring with a jigsaw

 

The igniotion barrel I got from a 240sx in the States was like $20 you can also get them from a type x but most people want silly prices lol

 

W.A. was done at Wholesale Suspension
