    bus - o - disappoinment

    So been a while lads. I get bursts of enthusiasm in between hospital visits lol. So the old girl has been on her side for a few weeks now, and hasn't blown over... Yay As you can see there is some pretty average looking sills. In my earlier days I was a little less than precise with...

    my welding adventures, lessons and failures :D

    So as most will know I'm guessing, I'm no longer working. But I am capable of welding a bit here and there. So here are a few of my adventures lately. Alas nothing overly awesome. But stuff to keep me busy. Ps fuck I miss work. Looking back through this has made me all sorts of mellow lol...

    got told to swap my hachi

    Lol. Anyone who says you can't drift virtually anything is tossing. And the 86/70 platform is fine and dandy And beau pulled the pin on his 86 cos the poor thing got fucking destroyed... Whoever you were talking to needs a paddling.... Sent from my HTC_0P6B using Tapatalk

    bus - o - disappoinment

    Not that you can tell lol but I gave the engine bay a clean. Some sca alloy wheel cleaner sprayed on and given a scrub with an old brush. Worked pretty well. The old girl is in such Good Nick really. Old mate who pulled the engine yesterday was so excited that every nut and bolt he touched...

    bus - o - disappoinment

    Finished the ugliest seats ever :D Something got lost in translation. I assumed (dick head lol) that the seats and rails would be actually or closely identical from passenger to drivers side. So I figured I'd be doing the same 35mm leveling stacks. Pulled the seat and got to checking, just...

    Curtis' 87 Resto Modded BEAMS

    Awesome work man. Love how clean and tidy it all is. The engine mounts being reomovable with nutserts is interesting. I know they are considered structural, but I have seen "lots" of them pulled out of bicycle frames just by the weight of the water bottles flapping around. Also, a quick...

    bus - o - disappoinment

    So for the last week or so I've been trying to keep some enthusiasm going and looking at fitting the "radical" seats. Possibly the ugliest things ever. So awesome. Started on the passenger side for the simple reason that the drivers door was too close to the trees for easy access lol. Had...

    Boom! I recon the swap to s14 will be the best result all round. Will take some head scratching but nothing that can't be sorted out easily enough within the rules... And the benefits so outweight the "but Nissan" whinging lol Either way loving the work man :) Sent from my HTC_0P6B using...

    Conrads 87 GTV - BEAMS, Multipoint Cage, AP Brakes, Brides..

    Looks awesome man. I am not sold on the wide body treatment. But it's a purely personal thing. I can't fault the quality of the work or the build and it does look a lot better than I though it would all together :) Hope that doesn't sound cunty. Is meant with the highest respect lol...

    And all done bar the wiring :) Even got the front suspension back together :) Does anyone know what the fucking locknut type washer cap things are called for the axle nut bolt ? I stupidly lost the one off the front when I pulled it apart and can't for the life of me find em anywhere...

    Thanks guys :) Johl there was nothing really in it. The numbers are close to what trd run. But more importantly they were what I have squirreled away from work before I got sick. So besides a donated 2inch to 2.5inch taper it cost me nothing. The taper is reasonably close to what the maths...
