Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Finally figured out the perfect rear hatch seal! I got one out of a Kia Optima and it fits absolutely perfectly. Doesn’t need cut and looks factory

Nope, not far off at all. You’re usually right or not far from the answer

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Thanks dude, this is the second set I’ve had and I love them.
Yep, it’s all greased up and mounted. I didn’t have it on there good enough before, a shorted coil is an expensive lesson tho lol

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Today I was able to go out and do a little work to the B. I put in a new blaster 2 and an alstar performance hei. I added another screw to mount the hei and cleaned the metal underneath for a better connection. Then I pulled out the blue retractable seat belts I installed last year and replaced them...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well my car had some more fun in the snow. The screw holding my hei backed out and lost ground on the back... then this shorted my coil out. It started up for a few min and died after I pulled out of my space. By the time I got it fixed there was 2” more snow. But in the process of figuring out the ...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Gotta be dedicated to a daily. Hell today I put a new battery in there... but the bearings are noisy on my new alt... so maybe warranty? Or maybe find bearings if it isn’t covered. It snowed the other night too, so I had to get some snow pics But I did find some awesome non retractable shoulder belt...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well that was fun... I thought my water pump was leaking. Turns out it was the pass through the timing cover. Got the gaskets in the mail yesterday and started on it at 12am after I got home. Everything went smoothly... but it started snowing around 2:30 and I quit by 3:30. Ended up getting up and h...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Damn, you got pretty into it. The gas powered ones look like allot of fun. That glider looks insane haha did it climb the currents pretty well? This is only the second I’ve built. The first was when I was 15 and I’d do nothing but wreck it and fix it and try again haha I also have another in progres...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

This is what I built today, not bad for a day. Hopefully going to get a calm day soon so I can try it out. I have an airplane obsessed family, so we all have these haha

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

It’s kinda rebuildable, but not in the easy way. I already pulled it apart and rebuilt the simple way. Not it needs some creative addition of a recess cut for a boring around the rod. I have a slightly more ratty way of dealing with it till I get something that’s going to work. Hose straight into th...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Turns out the leak I have is from the heater valve I re did. The shaft is worn too much so it’s spraying out from there. Only one I can find for sale anywhere online is $100... expensive for what it is. I’m going to hit up a couple different guys I know, but I don’t expect to find a valve anywhere. ...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

The heat is way better, but turns out I’m not done... there’s a leak and I think it’s the heater core.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Haha I actually didn’t notice the number change after they painted the lot a couple months ago. People keep making jokes about 69 haha till now I was confused. Next up will be some drilling and grinding to fit the Japanese from bumper. The u.s. housings are in the way. But today I had a major coolan...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Thanks guys, I’m really happy I was able to get these for a great price. I have a few more non u.s. market upgrades in the future too. The stock front bumper does have the shock things, but I have a Japanese front ready to go on the front. It hits the u.s. mount location that’s left after you take t...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

So I may have bought some things.... more things than I care to post. So I’ll post as it all goes on my car haha First up is a Japanese market rear bumper! There was bad rust pitting from the back side, so I cleaned it up and put a nice coat of por15 to seal it. Seems like it’s starting to come thro...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Tonight I decided to wrap up a couple wires that could be better, well more change than fix. First I made an adapter from my harness to the maxima alt. Then I soldered longer wires onto my headlight switch so I could finally mount it in the dash. Then I preceded to lock my keys in the car... which a...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

I have the tension control rod bushings, just need to put them on. Actually have the entire custom front suspension, but my coilover sleeves were a bit smaller than advertised so I need to fix the before they can go on

Re: The "Retired" 510

I’m interested to see those camber plates when they’re done. Nice choice on the b210 booster too, it looks smaller under your hood than on my b210.
