Got the fender in epoxy. 

 

Had a few broken bolts when removing the fender. Welder and some shitty standard nuts made quick work to remove. Got door removed, rebuilt the lower hinge and reinstalled the spring that had been missing since I got it. The hinge was too worn to accept the spring and still close. Fixed now.

 

On to the door. I probably won't strip this one all the way down. Paint was pretty decent, just a lot of dents. Found some previous filler, but it actally held up nice. Was surprised when I found it.. bodywork was done well.

I've just gotten into the habit of turning them the wrong way and breaking the heads off on purpose. Then screwing out what's left from the outside...  ?

Yeah did that on the top after the first one broke. I thought I might get lucky on the removal... nooooope! Both the 12mm by the door both broke off as well. No access from the inside on those that I could see. I tried backing them out, spray with PB, insert, repeat. They both broke still. Sucks drilling them out but I have had lots of practice so it's not all that bad, just takes a while.

I usually drill the bolt itself and tap it for the same size as the other fender bolts. ?

Good idea lol.

 

My method is drill, then dremel away until I can just pick out the leftover junk still stuck in the threads. Then no tapping needed, but takes a little longer.

I've done that a few times, but it's a rare occasion I get that hole drilled dead center...  ?

Not much to update on this car.. just sits in the garage while I find time to finish the body work. Been driving the 1200 while this one is down.

 

The high beams on this car are not great. They are the dapper lighting 575 halogen projectors. I just ordered the LED retrofit, which includes new projectors, and the LED bulbs. This should make the high beams much better. Plus I need to install the damn relay harness so they all stay on at the same time.

Installed the dapper lighting LED retrofit projectors. Couldn't have been easier.

 

I need to dig into the wiring a bit, but all pretty basic stuff. No pics because they all look the same.

Almost the same but a little variation.....

2 1200's and a 510. You still have me beat though. Only the 1200's can be driven at the moment.....if it wasn't for all the snow that has fallen here since the 28th.

Picked these up over the weekend. I'm guessing they will go in this car.

I will have to make the same next week.
But I was told that rear part of Skyline HR31 without hicas is bolt-on to my chassis. Need to find it for measuring.
