  1. I haven't had any problems with it so far and I have driven her around 10k miles across country and all. I also have a ls swap in mine so it holds the power just fine, no issues with anything breaking.

    Had the same problem on mine and it was the windshield gasket that was leaking.
  3. How is the build going? Any updates?
  4. If you use the s12+8 calipers from the later years, they were machined to fit vented roters like the s12w ones but have smaller cylinders making for more of around 57% to 43%. This is what I run and am very happy with the setup.
  5. Yep. Gland nut came loose. With that you probably have a nice clunking noise every time you hit a bump. That noise is the bottom of your strut bouncing around in the housing. With the gland nut coming off you probably screwed up the threads on the nut, the strut tube or both. You can try and clean the threads up and replace the nut, cross thread it and deal with it next time you replace the strut or just go coil overs. I had this exact thing happen to me and I cross threaded the gland nut back on and will replace with coil overs once I am done moving.
  6. Looking back at mine it has worn a nice ring around the shaft. So I think I'm going to end up notching mine after all.
  7. I did something like the JCI design but made mine out of 1x2 and where it runs up for the exhaust cutouts, I kept going up the trans tunnel and added two more bolts.
  8. Try some gas... something will eat that foam.
  9. Amongst all the big project I do on the datsun over the weekends, I like to keep a small project going during the week to keep the progress up. This past week project was the steering wheel clamshell. Mine had long ago bit the dust and i pulled it off and through it in a box and left all the wires and such exposed. About 3 weeks ago as im packing and moving stuff around getting ready for a 3rd cross country move, i came across it. All the mounting points had been broken in one form or fashion but I figured it wouldn't hurt to try and repair it. I didn't take pictures of the progress as I am always forgetting to but I got the steps and the end results which turned out fantastic. Step one, the top. With the top side having all the screw mounting points broken away, I was not sure about exact locations and heights of each but I had the base locations. From that, I cut pieces of 1/2in pvc and formed it to fit on the clamshell. I then sealed it to the shell with play-off (I think clay would have been better as the play-do leaked a little). after that, I filled the pvc with fiberglass epoxy (not poly) and added some chopped fiberglass pushing it in with a tooth pick. This gave me strong "peers" as to attach the bottom side. Once dry, I made three cuts down the sides of the pvc and it popped right off. Step 2, the bottom side. I then filled the screw hole or "tubes" with play-do to keep the epoxy in and wrapped ductape around what was left of the tubes. This formed a mold that I could then pour epoxy into to build the tubes back up. The epoxy I used did not stick at all to the sticky side of the ductape nor did it have any chemical reactions. Step 3, matting the two peices. I thought it would be a little harder than it was but this was the easiest step. I just pushed the two sections together and then used the drimel where needed with a sanding drum. It only took about 15 min and made a nice amount of dust. I then drilled holes and inserted screws. I did drill slightly larger holes than needed just to make sure that it didn't recrack but it worked perfectly. Step 4, paint. I did a light sanding just to scuff the surface with some 220 grit and then hit it with plastic primer. I then used 2 coats of textured rustolium spray paint (each coat was 2 light coats so really 4 in total). Although I liked the look, it was slightly rougher than what i wanted so I took 2000 grit and just lightly did a once over just to knock down the high points. I then applied 2 coats of matte clear uv resistant non yellowing. Alternate step 4. I was going to use the primer, then texture (1 coat), then the hammer (1 coat). I figured this would give it a raised texture then a leather grain look. I didn't do this because I loved the look of the texture. I have tried every bed liner and texture coat and this is one of the best. I am very proud of the results and they speak for them selves. If there are any questions let me know.
  10. I doubt that pump is going to keep up. Get an inline one or a in tank one that will supply the fuel needed. I swapped in the 02 camaro plastic tank and it has the inlet, outlet and then 3 random vents for expansion and such. Im guessing one goes to your expansion tank and the other to your charcoal canister. This alows for the tank to fill up and expand with heat.
  11. Not sure but your feed line should be bigger than your return line.
  12. Mine was close as well but fit... try bolting it all together loosely and then check fitment.
  13. The more i see them the more I like the look. I to would like to know how you finished the edge. I have heard of people welding a very small pipe on the outer edge to finish custom flairs but would like to see what you have planned. Also, how are you tying it into the airdam.
  14. I have been working on something like this for my lsz. It is an arduino controller that will have 4 wheel hall sensors. It will then have a knob to adjust how much traction is "desired" i.e. no traction to warm tires up in the box or 95% for launching. The arduino would then be able to cut both spark and fuel from a cylinder. I have about a 75% salution for the programming, I just have to get time to finish it. I'm sure something similar could be adapted for a carb engine that cuts spark at the dizzy if you are any good at programming.
