    Windshield replacement DIY?

    Highly suggest a tube of liquid butyl rubber. Inject lightly under the seal once installed, before installing trim. If you get any on the car, and petroleum based substance will wipe it away.

    What are re-bore limits?

    <p>A guy over on the ozdat forum has bored out multiple L18s. Many will go to 89mm but all the ones he did ovaled inside of a year of driving. My L18 went to 87mm without a problem.</p>

    Daily Hillclimb Build (s30)

    Sometimes a change of focus is what is needed. I lost focus on my car, and when a friend messed up my radiator while welding it, I changed my focus to another part of the car and suddenly got a lot work done on the front suspension. I love this build, shows a different side to the average car build.

    Let's also not forget he changed the date for his show this year, from the weekend before Canby to the same weekend as Canby.

    280zx struts

    I thought the 7/8ths was too stiff. I liked my 3/4". Probably would have gone to the 620 13/16th if I was still driving my car.

    I couldn't here my non clutch fan over my intake.

    Kiwi Melon......................

    Probably a better question for Thomas, but my guess is no.

    I like the RCA solution. Because you are lowering the car with the struts, might as fix your roll center/bumpsteer.

    Duncan's 71 "Oz" Goon

    I bought mine from the guy on Ebay back when it was $100. I had no such issues, other than the bows wanting to fall down while installing. But it fit my wagon great. Nice material, and enough for the pillars and sunvisors (which I havent covered yet). So either the Aussie wagon is different or the company just has bad quality control, probably the latter. Did the binder clip method to glue in the edges. Everything pulled nice and tight. Also, I forgot to note the location of where the bows came from, Heard they were different front to back. Also there were 3 holes for each bow to go into.

    Heated seats

    But don't you have an Altima alternator? I agree though. My BMW with a 120a alt can power both seats, rear window/side mirrors, sub woofer, 6 headlight bulbs and everything else it does without flinching. But the 510 stock alternator is a 35 amp one...

    Find a e30 wiring diagram, wire it like that. Use a relay for sure. Also make sure you have a big alternator, any electrical device that makes heat is never too efficient and uses a lot of power.

    Damnit, I want e30 seats so bad! They are nearly a grand for ones in that condition here.

    I have Datsunlandsocal inner/outer window squeegee and channel felt. Thailand door seals, and Vintage Rubber windshield seal. Everything else is either still original to the car or sourced from another wagon.

    Thailand rubber isnt about winter, the problem is the sun. The UV light kills the bad quality rubber from Thailand. Get a quality windshield seal. Other than that, pick and choose your other seals based on cost vs how much sunlight they get directly.
