Here's some stuff that happened before I got too excited and posted the finished product.
Bit of suspension work over last weekend.
I replaced the R31 struts with S13 hubs and coilovers.
Here is the hub in question.
They went on fairly easily now that I have one of these for separating the tapered fittings (tie rod ends, ball joints).
One of 2 problems was the R33 GTS brakes wouldn't fit with the S13 shield.
The caliper interfered here
After a little dismantling...
The other problem was the tie rods I was supplied have a different thread
I'm looking into a fix for that. (the fix turned out to be R32 tie rods).
Everything in place
The track came out pretty much exactly the same.
So I got all that done, jumped in the car, and it wouldn't start.
Lights, fuel pump, good no starter motor.
Electrics not being my strong suit, I'll get a sparky to look at it. (wire fell off the starter motor. Sparky didn't charge me, he just rolled his eyes. He knows what I'm like
And here's some stuff I did yesterday.
If you follow this thread you'll know that this happened last track day.
Busted rear diff bracket.
It happened at Marulan Driver Training Centre, and MDTC owner Gary Wilmington made me a newy to get me home.
Replaced my aftermarket rear diff bracket with a new stock one.
While I was under there I too a couple of pics of the rear wheel/rear trailing arm clearance.
And finished the steering with R32 tie rods and Hardrace tie rod ends
And did a wheel alignment
Pink string FTW!
Turns out I string lined and eyeballed it to within 2mm on the alignment, and to within .07 degrees on the camber.
I even surprise myself sometimes at how good I am
