Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
I've spent long time to get the right ride height. It's been fun playing with coilovers. Luckily, door panels were originally in good condition and I made sure they stay that way for sure. Yes, you can use pics if you want.Eikon wrote:The ride height is perfect as well..
How did you get such clean door panels? I've never seen them in that kind of shape. Look brand new!
Hope your not copywriting those pics.. .I'm going to save them to our gallery and get them 240sxconvertible.com soon.
Thanks for sharing!
I had main crank seal leak, valve cover leak, p/s hose leak x 2, leaky water pump, so it was just a mess down there. I spent days and days to clean it up, and I think I used several buckets of degreaser. Once it was cleaned, it was easy to maintain that way.WideBodyCharlie wrote:
i see why your proud of the undercarriage pic. that's amazing clean! and everything looks to be in perfect condition. you vert owners know how to keep it clean.
It's a painted SE lip plus add on rubber Nismo lip spoiler. I added it for a protection. Nismo lip is kinda popular among 350z guys to protect front bumper, and japanparts.com had it on sale for $15 or somthing like that long time back.4cedkoop wrote:
I've seen just the small black lip that came on most SE's. But never the white and the black.
I love this car, so I care about it a lot. Wheels are LM-GT4 knock offs. Got them when I went to Japan for a vacation a couple of years ago. Was looking for white M2 DT-05Rs, but ended up buying these. Brand new $80 each. Original price was $120 each, but store owner wanted to get rid of them quick. He said white ones never sell. It's 17lb each and he didn't want to tell me much about it, so don't know the details. But he said quality was good and didn't get any complaints from buyers. It wasn't fun taking JR back to the hotel with 4 huge boxes, but had no problem bring them back to the States. Yes, I do know it's ricey, but they are alright and can't beat the price and looks.madcowvert wrote:
wow holy crap that thing is soo damm clean how the hell do you keep it that clean... what wheels are those? are they really nismo wheels?
I have no idea. My cousin who briefly lived there at the time took me to this area where some wheel stores were next each other. I remember I took a green JR from Shinjuku and switched to red. I took a set on display. That was all they had. URAS NS-01 is the closest wheels you can find, but you must go for 5 lug and white wheels are not available.4cedkoop wrote: do you know of anywhere you can still get those wheels? Let me know man. Thanks, Charles.
Email sent!! You are one of those who must see it. Hope you like it!!mottabam wrote: Any chance you can email me a picture, I can't see the photos, only the red X that won't open.
Ish, zenkii, donmeca, Brian, goingtoless... Thanks for the compliments.zenkii wrote: thats a clean vert you got there, i like them rims what are the measurements!
I was going to post pics after the brake upgrade, but it seemed like taking forever to get there. Anyway, I must say pressure is gone now.ishkabibble wrote:I don't know why you were hesitant to post pics. Your car is nice.
BTW, I took your advice about those "silver" amber bulbs made for clear turn signals. Look and work great!
I'm a huge fan of original factory parts. All pieces are OEM ABS plastic aero parts. Side skirts and rear valences are from JDM Silvia aero version and front lip is 240sx SE lip that you can find on some 240s with chuki bumpers. But you won't see it on verts. I think Nissan didn't put it on cuz vert is slightly lower than others.mottabam wrote: After closely examining the pictures I noticed how subtle and flowing that body kit is, the sides are awesome. The front lip looks especially cool also. Please let me know where this kit is available. Great work.
