  1. Good luck and remember to adjust the applied torque to account for the crowsfoot length, unless you put it at 90 deg.
  2. I don't know the answer to your question, but below are a few good posts from other sites. It appears that if you have the correct length gearbox (660mm) then it will fit, with modifications for the larger 71C bearing and relocating one of the side mounted switches. https://www.viczcar.com/forums/topic/1966-what-gearboxs-fit/
  3. I don't recall, were the stock screws supposed to be reused or were they provided? If you can figure out the class of bolt then I would use a torque chart from a reputable source like this one: https://www.fastenal.com/content/merch_rules/images/fcom/content-library/Torque-Tension Reference Guide.pdf If screws were not provided then I probably replaced the screws with new high strength class 10.9 or 12.9 and torqued them per the linked chart.
  4. It's probably polyurethane since it's so flexible, it's been a while so I don't really remember. I put an MSA type 1 fiberglass dam on my first daily driver '76 s30. It had no bracing and as far as I know it never had a problem with it folding under the car.
  5. Looks good! I need to do something similar to mine. I have a Xenon dam made from ABS, it is actually bent downwards from, what Im guessing is airflow pushing on it, probably warping from heat too. When I got the car, it didn't have any support so the dam would fold under a highway speeds. To prevent that, I closed out the bottom with a large sheet of aluminum that screws to the lip and made brackets to attach the back to the sway bar mounting locations.
  6. It's just a street car: Speedo, Tach, Fuel Level, Volts, Coolant Temp, Oil Pressure, Oil Temp, and Boost pressure.
  7. Dang those are really cool! I'll have to call them next week to see if they will sell me the faces to swap out on mine.
  8. You'll be happy with them. I love my revolutions with black faces with white letters that light up red at night. The only think I wish I had done differently was get the dual speedo/fuel gauge. That would have saved me one gauge and fit better in my setup - 8 in total.
  9. This seems like some legitimate testing.
  10. My son has an '81 S130. We struggled with this exact same issue. Some of the clips broke or were already broke as we were removing the strip. For me breaking the clips was expected as it sometimes (always?) happens removing old plastic or even new plastic clips, not knowing exactly how to manipulate the panel/clip when removing it. Anyway, he also found some clips online but could not find the early (pre '82?) strip. After much Googling he eventually figured out, as you did, that the old strip is NLA but that the newly designed strip will work in the earlier S130s. As a side note,
  11. It's good to hear that you guys have had good experience with them. I hate bashing vendors, everyone makes mistakes and maybe I was just the unlucky one. Anyway, in the end, besides the problems I had with delivery and product quality, I feel there are better and cheaper options. The tank suffers from the dreaded left turn air sucking lean condition - same as the stock fuel tank. If I were to do it all again, I would go with one of the many drop-in solutions that are on the market today or delete the spare tire well (I don't carry one anyway) and install a fuel cell.
  12. Have you guys ever bought anything from Zfever before? My experience when buying an S30 aluminum fuel tank from them was less than stellar. Hopefully their service has improved but I would be wary of a shop who promises a 4 week lead time but actually delivers a defective product more than 4 months later after numerous excuses instead of being straight with me. I ended up paying them $800 for the tank then another $100 for a local fab shop to relocate the fill pipe into the correct position.
  13. Congrats Sanchez! Glad to hear you figured it out. What CAD software are you using for the schematic wiring? I recently downloaded KiCAD but haven't really used it yet.
  14. Yup, north of $15k just for labor (depending on the shop and your location). Proper custom fabrication ain't cheap or easy. To do it right and do it yourself, assuming you don't already have the knowledge (custom programmable fuel injection, forced induction, S30/L6 quirks, electrical circuits, wiring, etc.), skills required (welding, wiring, crimping, tube bending, etc.), and tools (welder, welding tools, quality crimpers, tube/pipe bending/flaring, DMM, grinder, chop/miter saw, sander, etc.)...the learning curve is significantly steep. Lots of reading/learning (mostly Googling a
