So I finally got my one arm back from getting fixed. One of the eyelets was opened up and the stock bushing would just slide thru and not press in. So I had someone make a new eyelet,cut the old one off and weld the new one on. It is out at the powder coater right now. I have installed the other arm.

Then got out my torque wrench. It is about 4 ft long and goes up or down to 600 ft lbs. It does not ratchet so that makes it a little tough to use
Image
Image

It is a 3/4 drive so I went to snap on and got a 30mm 3\4 socket. Only to find out the socket dia is larger then the hole in the half shaft flange. So I returned it and got a 3\4 to 1\2 adapter and a 30mm 1\2 drive socket.
Image

So now I need to head up and visit kgc10 and get some brake parts. Then I will be getting some more stuff done.

I got them plated at a place called swift metal finishing in santa clara. I use them a lot thru my work. I know of a couple places in Sacramento that I have used before but I have there number at work. If you do get this plating donw make sure they bake them after plating or they will become brittle and may brake.

So I finaly got my diff and axles back from my friend. I have stripped and clean them really good. He masked and painted them for me.
Image

So I was able to get the diff installed today.

So in the next few weeks I should be able to get it on the ground.

Nice work. If you really get with it, it would be great to see the car at Turn Z at the Sonoma Historics the second weekend in June.

So I have got some stuff done on the car. I got the drivers side axle, springs, shock, and stainless steel braided line installed. I was cleaning my hard brake lines and was going to paint them black. Then I some how stripped the threads on one end of the drives side while trying to install it. So instead of fixing the threads I pulled out my AN fittings, stainless steel tubing, tube bender, and 37' flaring tool. I sat down and made this.
Image

I don't know why I thought this would be easier but it went very well. This is the only one I made. I got it right one the first try. The tube sleeve and nut are also stainless. Here are some installed shots.

Now I need to get started on the passenger side.

Those power coated parts sure do look nice. Hardline turned out real nice too. Also if you have time this weekend Id like to drop off the lid & pickup two plate holders.

So with the drivers side brakes all done I moved to the passenger side. My first issue was the stock brake end is a little different from the ones I can get. So I got a 10mm x -3 clip in connector. I then had to make a clip to hold it in. We had some .135 and .015 stainless around the shop. So I made these..
Image

Here it is installed
Image
Image

I then moved to the braided line. The fist set up I didnt like cause it looked like it may kink at the bottom fitting when the arm moved up.
Image

So I got another 10mm x -3 clip in fitting and a 45' end and this is what I got.
Image

I liked it much more but when I went to bend up my hardline I didnt like this..
Image

So I can not make that first bend any shorter with my tools and I don't want the line hanging below the arm. So back to the tool box. I found a 90' bulkhead fitting. I did a test and it looked like it would work. So I machined a plate to hold it in the arm.
Image

And here it is installed.
Image

So now I need to work on a hardline.

Got a lot done this weekend. Finished up the brake lines, got the axles in, and the muffler hung. Today I took the car off the stands and let it down. I had the coild over on the bottom setting. The car goes lower then my floor jack. So I had to use the scissor jack to get enought room so the floor jack could work again. I will have som photos this weekend. I think the rocker in the rear was about 4 inches form the ground. Super stoked...

fyi (you may or may not know) there's a pretty cool adapter you can get that allows you to use your floor jack on the sissor jack up points

The front is not lowered yet. I am now starting to buy the parts to lower the front. I am going to do a nice refresh of all the parts I can just like the rear.

Dude,

whichbushes did you get for the wishbones?

I also orderend poly bushings from Whiteline thru Datsport for my crossmember and moustache bar. The ones for the crossmember are the same as a 510 and I copied Kev for the moustache bar.
Image

The crossmember bushing are cool cause they use the stock cone bushing.[/quote]

If you are talking about the arms. I used stock rubber bushings on one and the V50 adjustable one on the other. I can get you the nissan part number for the stock bushings later.
