  1. Right! I was talking to a guy about that recently as well. There is another show or two in October so this may be the last show quality show. It needs to be used as designed.
  2. Zdayz was a lot of fun this year. Looking to do more activities there next year.
  3. I have an MFactory helical unit in my R200 and am very happy with it on the street. I can’t speak to how it would react on racing slicks though, I haven’t heard of anyone using them racing. But it does have a lifetime warranty.
  4. Thanks! Take it slow, consoles are kind of rare and expensive! And depending on the condition, you may want to coat the entire console with a fresh coat of the SEM trim black paint to get a uniform finish. I also polished the stainless steel trim and ash tray cover to look as new as I could get it.
  5. This is what I am currently working on. https://ratsun.net/topic/78389-72-620-truck-ka-build-tank/ 72 620 with a ka24de out of a 2001 frontier.
  6. Thanks, It's amazing how fun it is to drive. I wish I could run the spoiler on the front all of the time but here in the mountains, it would get torn off pretty quick because of the angles of driveways and entrances.
  7. Just want to say I have about 500 miles on my unit and I love it! Great product and great communication from these guys.
  8. Before putting it up for the winter, I changed wheels that have tires that are cold weather friendly. Totally changed the look, I only have these 2 pictures but I'll run them in the spring until the weather warms up. Then I'll switch back to the black wheels/tires.
  9. Nice build, I've been down this path, it took me 10 years. But man it's worth it!
  10. Been a bit since I updated but I've put about 400 miles on it. Such a blast to drive, it's ridiculous how well it handles and goes. No drama, just does what you ask of it. For the cooling, I had to change to a recirculating overflow tank. So now it can push/pull fluid with heat cycles.
  11. +1 on that, mine runs flawless as well. Only difference is I am not running the stock sending unit. I have the speedhut sending unit in the top beside the aeromotive unit.
  12. +1 on the retro sound. I just finished a complete restoration so I ran the mic up to the corner of the sun visor so the Bluetooth and hands free calling is a nice add. I also have tweeters in the dash vents (I wanted everything to look stock), 5-1/4 in the shallow kick panels, 6x9s behind the seats and a 12” sub with amp in the spare tire well. Best part is none of it noticeable. I can find some photos of the install if any one is interested.
  13. So I have a vq35de swap with cd009 6 spd in my 73. With that, the shifter has been moved about 2 inches to the rear from the stock location. I wanted to keep the stock console so this is what I ended up with. Very happy with the results, if you don’t know these cars very well, you would never know it was relocated. As for the original panel above the fuse panel, I made a new one with a sheet of abs plastic and a heat gun. Then I wrapped it in suede. It’s a perfect spot for the phone. I have since changed the cord to a black one so it blends in nicely. pic dump! The photo above shows the piece already cut and epoxied in the new spot. I filled in any other cut areas with some abs plastic pieces cut to fit. choke slot filled with epoxy and the body filler to smooth out. I used SEM texture and trim black paint to finish it. Other details include repairing/adding new shifter boot tabs to clip the boot to. And putting a little suede in the ash tray for the rfid key fob (push button start).
  14. I also made a front strap out of some 1/8” cable with some tubing around it. I already have a rt mount so if it translates any noise I’ll take it out.
