Finally, after years of bad shit happening, karma seem to reward me these days. As luck would have it, I bought two more cars just days before snapping the driveshaft. So replacing it was done in an afternoon with no problems. One of the cars was in pretty bad condition, so I only kept a few bits and pieces like chrome trim and a black interior. The other one was actually drivable, and I drove it all the way home over the mountains of Norway (800 miles/500km)! Here's a couple of pics from the trip home.
Not sure what to do with it, but if it passes the test to get plates, I'll probably paint it white and slam it on widened black steelies or something. Would make a sweet daily driver.
As for my JZX30, it's still running perfectly. The last days I've been fixing minor issues like clearance for the shifter etc, but other than that I've just been driving around all day
The only new addition is chrome trim on the left hand side head light (not present in the pictures) and a new passenger seat. Ever since I got my Bride seat super cheap I've been trying to find a similar seat for the other side. I've found a few online, but they have all been in USA or UK, and pretty expensive. Add shipping and I'm out. But yesterday I stumbled across an ad on a Norwegian forum that I visit once a year or so. Some guy was selling a bride recliner for $250. Still a bit more than I could afford at the moment, but then I noticed a new post saying all prices had been cut in half. So I sent him a text asking for a picture. My hopes for it being a blue Bride Brix were slim, to say the least. Imagine my reaction when it was the exact same seat I allready have. I could have it for $125 and it was local (15 minutes away)! Needless to say, I jumped in the car and went to pick it up right away. After welding a seat frame and mounting it in the car, I took my camera and went for a drive. Found a cool industrial area and shot some pics. Hope you like them
