I also debated if I should cut into my package tray. In the end on mine the rear bars are tucked up high to clear the back seat and down to the rear wheel arches. Your bar looked cool from what I saw at Jccs.

I have the rear bars figured out and now installed. Time to finish weld the thing and send it off for powder coating.

so what did you decide Paul?

bolt to parcel shelf?
or bolt to vertical sheetmetal just below rear glass and just above parcel shelf?

I Mounted to the vertical sheet metal below the window and above the shelf. Found there were old mounts from a vintage cage back in the day. I am not sure how Paul wants to build his cage. He just might do something crazy. His next motor and transmission combo is going to be crazier for next year as well.

Yesterday was an exciting and busy day. I got the headliner installed and picked up the rollcage from the powder coater.

My wallet took a hit but I think it was worth it. Nice easy weekend of simply bolting in the cage.

I have been away for a while. I just love when I come home and find parts that I have ordered are waiting for me.

New rear quarter glass seals installed on both sides.

Appearantly the pic was too large to load to this forum. The link will have to do. More coming later I promise.

Which vendor did you go with?

I need to do all my weatherstrips on mine as they are pretty shot...

I'm wondering if R+S, V50, RSStart all re-sell the exact same rubber pieces or if there are quality differences...

I have seen some CHEAP (like $50 cheap) front & rear glass weatherstrips on eBay coming out of Thailand but have stayed away from those...

I used all NISSAN replacement rubber seals. I kept my wrappers for the part numbers. Most are still available thru NISSAN JP. Rubber Soul, V50 and fly rat all sell theNISSAN parts. Some other vendors sell repos. I have not tried the repos. eBay from Thailand sounds like a bad idea.

Expect to pay $2k for a complete set of all seals.

Any chance you can post the part numbers?

This weekend wrapped up me assisting another Hakosuka owner getting his car back on the road. The motor was torn down in order to install a newly machined head. A nicely built N42 with a 500 lift cam. The old setup was a nice JDM powerplant but as with all high compression builds: CA gas is not good. Here is a pic. A short video is due as soon as I figure out the youtube procedures.

My apologies for the grainy cell phone pic. Wrench turning was the priority not necessarily documenting the process. L6 building is pretty straight forward.

Some upgrades that happened through the process of upgrading the head: ARP head studs, metal head gasket, ceramic coating the intake manifold and powdercoating several engine bay compnents.

The motor is pretty nice to begin with; 45mm mikunis, full MSD ignition components, the most impressive tako ashi exhaust manifold I have ever seen for a N/A motor, 3.1 bottom end and the ever so jealous modern A/C kit from V50.

A trip to the dyno is needed next to fully take advantage of the head swap. As most of you know JDM builds are able to use more high compression combinations. With CA fuel at the level of: :cry: : we are limited to 91 octane. So the shaved high compression head and kakimoto cam came off in order to make room for a rebello machined head and custom grind .500 lift cam. With some adjustments to jetting and timing on the chasis dyno this motor could be close to 275hp. Pretty good for an old L6.

I am having the exhaust shop rebuild the exhaust piping. Tucked it up closer to the body and mandrel bent. 3" piping. I reused the kakimoto muffler.

A pic of the underside. One can see I removed the spare tire well completely. I added in some cross supports at the samr time. All the bushings have been replaced with polyuerathane. (hint: do not use 510 parts). The CV axles are in. A R200 LSD fits in nicely. 240sx rear disc brakes as well with stainless steel coated lines. The new exhaust is mandrel bent 3" and tucked in tighter to the body. The underside has been completely stripped to bare metal, powdercoated, painted or treated with NASA grade anti-rust treatments. I am determined to not have any rusts issues as long as I am still on this Earth.

Image

Some things I still want are the rear coilover kit with drop shocks and a diff pump would be real cool too.


A pic of cutting into the rear valance to make an opening for the exhaust tip. Previously I replaced my rear valance with a thicker guage metal to help stiffen the body. I did not create an opening for the exhaust tip at that time. I was conteplating several different ideas. I settled on this semi stock look. However the opening is not nearly as large as a stock cutout. Just enough for my 90mm kakimoto to rumble thru.
