Green truck finally sold!
Image

So now back to my build with some much needed extra funds :D


I needed some visal change.... Badly

So I stripped the shopping cart bumpers, cleaned the rims a bit and threw on tire shine
Image


But that led to a sponge bath and TR3, this is what hides under your trim
Image

Wow...... Simply wow
Image

Much better!!!
Image

Now I can move onto progress on my KA swap!



Like a clutch slave and line!
Image

Even managed to get my final measurements for the one piece drive line!!

I'm dropping off an old drive line so the shop can use the diff flange and yolk to make me a new one piece the right length should be about $190 at I5 drive line

And to top off the day I finally took the ripped leather off my 720 ST Wheel I Got From Jrock

Turns out it matches my door panels :D

So now I'm on the hunt for a 6 bolt adapter

And I got a new job at Nissan as a tech, with the chance to advance so when I have regular cash flow again I should be able to wrap this up

I have a couple former coworkers who worked there back when it was Beaverton Nissan. One was a service writer, the other was a tech. They used to run a team system there. I never fully understood it though.

New ST wheel is mounted on an ST hub!

Finally sold the can-o-pee I picked up a while back
Image
Way better with just a truck box :)


And last for today I stripped the seats and general clutter from the interior to remove the female seatbelt ends from the seat, tidy up the rear area, install the last of my interior, and hide some speakers

Be sure to check in to the stupid day job tread after a few days and let us know how it's going.

Have fun with that. My advice... Run!

Kidding. Good group of guys there.
Between Ed, Russ, and Tang.

Keebler is a troll.
Ask Ed about Rudy and a paintball venture he had.

Like whom?

I prefer the team aspect in a dealer.
It makes perfect sense in an import dealer more so than any other.

It was over 10 years ago. Bryan was a tech and Jamie was a writer. We all worked at Bassitt together. Jamie went back to Bassitt after about a year and Bryan got caught up in some ID theft / fraud thing that was connected to the Nissan shop. Haven't talked to either in a few years.
