    I can't find your comments. Yes 3/8 and M10 fittings are so close if you are a newbie like me its hard to tell they aren't the right fittings. They even hold fluid after bleeding. I have to switch them all out eventually but don't have the ambition. I thought a brake line was a brake line. In Australia you can only buy one type but here you can buy 3! US, English, and Japanese

    Dumb question did you use US spec or Japanese spec brake line fittings for your hard brake lines?

    The moment you realize...... you used US thread brake fittings for every single brake line, when the tech wiki says M10 metric fittings. 🤬🤬🤬

    I used a black silicone in the glazing track to set the vent window glass. Leave it in a vice vice upside down to set. Be sure to use a towel and gently set it in the vice though of course.

    Installed my custom radiator piping today. I would have preferred blue to match some of the other accent but yellow is not too bad. I also found a New Old Stock oil cap to replace the 38 year old original one And I also found some new Chrome Fender mirrors also New Old Stock. I've spoken to a few Nissan dealers in the USA trying to find original brake line so that I don't have to fabricate new ones but it looks like they are all gone

    Plastidip to another color maybe? I love the bronze though.

    New wheels. Long story but I bought a NOS pair of Rotas and tried to match them with new ones. Unfortunately the color is off a little. Enough to bother my OCD brain. I might get them hydrodipped with a sticker graphic.

    Air conditioner in a 1200

    The Sunny Truck from Japan 1985 and newer I believe comes with air conditioning I would imagine that it can swap into a u.s. spec Coupe or sedan
