I have finally found time to create a build thread for the Nissan.
So who is Yoshi you might ask?
Above: This is Yoshi, i tried getting him to post up his own build thread but its just not going to happen without treating him 500 times. So i shall do all the posting.
This started out as a South African 1987 Nissan 1400, it had the fat bumpers and square lights. Yoshi was not too fond of this look and slowly started hunting for the Sunny truck parts.
Above: what it started life as...
Above: Yoshi wanted some fogs and a lip... this look did not last long
Above: Ready to hit the streets.
Then after many roadtrips and hunting for parts, they slowly started finding their way onto the Sunny.
Above: With the help of my Brother we imported the Fender mirrors for Yoshi's truck, I also fitted the grill and front bumper .But I was not clued up enough to have the light retrofitted and needed some work to have that put on.
Above: I ask my panelbeater/friend (pictured above) who did my honda if he would help me fit the lights... and he happily obliged and it was done.
Above: all fitted and looking alot better right Yoshi?
Above: he is loving it...
Above: Roadworthied and passed, after many tries... Nanakorobi yaoki (fall seven stand up 8 i guess)
Above: Yay new plates and registered.
Above: Yoshi checking out his new shoes, but did not like it. He is so fussy.
Above: Then he found a suitable wheel (Toms Igetta) and cant wait for it to arrive. its 13x7 (-5 offset for front) going to need some stretch and camber which will be sorted. and rears are 13x8.
Yoshi then went on a roadtrip to see the snow...
Above: He clearly loved it, seen here with my gf, and enjoyed driving in his Sunny.
Until next time, Thanks for looking everyone
I tried getting Yoshi to say Thanks to everyone for looking but all i got was this:
hadlxeh;er hze;q2ek 'aexk ...woof
. So i will rather do the typing haha.
So plans are:
-wait for wheels to arrive
-get camber tops for the front
-if the tyres that are on the wheels dont clear the guards (which i doubt will) then i will have to get some tyres that stretch
-Lower the Sunny
and enjoy it with Yoshi and my GF.
Until next time
