**** that looks good. Will have to come see it next time I'm over. I've always wanted a bright green (V can coloured) engine bay and roll cage.

Light up date,

Must be an early christmas in my house ...



Been stocking up a few little parts, if anything this build has gone the complete opposite to how it was destined when first got the car, was supposed to be a low budget build ... thats how it always starts ...

Title should be changed to Marks RB25 cefiro, as have bought a low k's RB25DET neo, done 94 k's thats currently sitting in my shed.

Few parts here to get ready to put in..

Nardi woodgrain,
C's Garage 555 knuckle design, lca's, and crossmember modification,
Takata harness,
Nolathane bushes to rodeja(?) and back,
new link arms and bushes on the sways,
GKTech castor arms.

Waiting ( loooong wait...) on my fixed Bride artis III to show up now to couple with my harness, will be after a rail if anyone knows of any!

Also, was an ants nat away from buying these this week... think i have a japanese wheel fetish haha. Bang on sizes and offsets though..



Currently as car sits im waiting on spraying the bay, went away from a loud paint colour, have gone for an aliminum fleck silver, and am going to add some sparkle, will save that for a post photo though ...


Also trying to chase down a genuine works bell quick release, - but would settle for a Sparco if anybody knows of any!


Until then.

Mark.

This thing is sick mate, your use of genuine decent parts is awesome and makes me ****ing jealous :D Nothing wrong with having a jap wheel fetish, I know how you feel :p The Rezax's suit it to a tee.

Almost bought this myself when it first popped up, sorta glad I didnt, good to see its being done properly now though, good on ya :)

Thanks alot man. I did buy this from a new found friend at the time, who didn't do the work, but his friend before him did, and the hole car was so terribly put together.

I learnt alot of things about set-ups with my previous laurel, and am planning on expanding with new ideas for this car, unfortunately, it needed a bit of love :o , although in the pain and anger, at the end of the day its what i enjoy doing strangely. To be able to stand back and admire something you have done and be kind of happy with it is a good feeling. Although, i think im a little ocd with having things just right.

The person who did the work to this car, should be banished from touching something ever again.

More to come very soon.

Thanks.

I bought it through a friend who is still selling 2 more i believe, they are genuine new ones, i payed $300, which if you know of the prices of them from J-land is a steal.

Check out trademe, he is from chch, and im sure i saw him selling more. :dude

Meh, myself and pretty much all of our group who own Nissans are OCD as ****, never happy with our cars lol, but at the end of the day when you step back and admire the car as a whole, its just so worth it :)

Very productive week.

Relocated crossmember turned up today, along with my Sparco quick release, TiAL external and extreme low mount seat rail for the Artis.

As my knuckles had also turned up from Joel late last week, decided to refit them to the hubs.

First one was no worries, bearings felt good, second hub, not so good. Quite rumbly and more resistance to turning. So decided to carry on with my 'do it once do it right' motto, bought 2 new bearings, and the infomation is as follows; (first time trying to change hub bearings)

To suit S13 hubs, (12mm shock mounting holes, and believe the spindle shaft is smaller than s14/s15).

30mm hub nut - remove.
Nut washer- remove,
hub should slip out easy enough off the spindle,
press old bearing out of hub, now this takes quite alot of force, 12 tonne to be exact, so wait for the crack because it will come.

Push them right out,clean all your parts up with brakekleen.

Grab your new bearings ($86 each side from Wilson Bros. Chch)

I heated the hub outer with a light propane torch to aid in fitting,
Set your hub thread side down on some rubber matting which is on hard wood,

Put some light oil inside the hub and using a 50mm 3/4" drive socked, press fit squarely theouter race of the bearing, - the 50mm socket is perfect, clears the outside of the hub, but enough to get the outer race. Have your rubber stepped seal side facing into the knuckle !

Push that girl deep, deep enough to clip your snap ring back in.

Flip her back over, knock back in any studs that have come out of the splines,

Fit dust steel covers,

Anti seize the spline.

Hub back on the spline, nut washer on, tighten nut to 135 Ft. LB on your 3/4" torque wrench. (Recommended torque for s-13 hubs)

Feel good about yourself for changing your own wheel hub bearings.

Was my first time, any comments/critisism accepted.

Bearings are as follow to suit s13 hub.

Hopefully this helps someone out in the future or whenever.



This weekends plan is, finish prep in engine bay. :dude
