since my last post a lot has been happening. I started an auto repair with my brothers and sister, I changed the engine in the Corolla twice and I got a promotion where I work. The latest development is that I purchased a cab for the truck. Yes its a Kingcab and I started converting it from left hand to right hand drive. It has all that I am looking for but some one cut the harness behind where the battery is located. I do not have a lot of time these days so progress will be slow. The people I bought the cab from, has the tray for it so when I build enough cash I will go for it, hopefully in two weeks. I paid US$ 2200.00 for the cab and they want US$ 1300.00.for the tray. I tool some pics so enjoy.

:yesnod Happy New year to all. It has been slow progress thus far. The PC is not reading my phone so all the pics of the conversion will come as soon as I get them loaded on the PC. I have completely restored the Corolla and is in the process of restoring the wife's Wingroad. I should restart the repairs the the truck by the 9th of Jan, so look out for more updates soon. Again Happy New Year to all my NICO family. :chuckle:

It appears that I cannot get the pics from the phone so we will continue with what I have. the steering and dashboard have been installed, the brake booster and master cylinder have been installed and I installed the electronic door locks. The gas tank I bought locally is like a sieve, so I ordered one from the US. It arrived in the country today and is being cleared by customs. here is a few pics of the latest done.

Hello again my Nissan family. it's officially back on. Ace2cool thanks for the offer to assist to locate my old thread but I got it going on my own. Here's where its at. My company is closing it doors so I have loads of time until I get something to do :mad:. But every dark cloud has a silver lining. I took off the tray and started cleaning the chassis. Here's some pics of the work done.

The company I worked for closed its doors. Now that I have ample time I will start to complete the pick up as I have all that is necessary. Will post again when I start after Christmas.
