My new 240k Hardtop

Recommended Posts

No progress Adzmax, I just sat the jdm lights in there to see how it would look and fitted new reflectors to the rear bar so I sat it on for a look too.

I like the look of flares with wide rims but don't like the fact that the bodywork gets cut up to fit them.

Blue on blue haha, you're a classic man hey!

Absolutely! :laugh:

Sorry, last threadjack.

Loving your work Laggy, this car is turning into a work of art!:cool: A couple of you guys are really giving these cars the treatment they deserve...I still remember the days when every one on the road was rusted out, belching smoke, sporting a towbar and had rooted rear suspension, really belied what a great looking car they are.

Bit of a update - I machined the rough cast finish off the alloy bearing carriers for the diff centre and gave them a little polish.

And i'm slowly putting every nut, bolt, washer, bracket etc. that was zink plated from factory into this tub ready to be redone.

Your bucket-o-zinc looks like mine. I've got parts from my 240 and an RX3 Savannah to get done too.

Those door handles look nice, I've been tossing up whether to replace or re-plate. Did you get them from YJ?

Degruch - Those adverts are cool but it's lacking Flares, lowness and watanabe's ;)

Adz - I was the same as you, should i pull them apart and re plate them or get new ones. In the end I chose new ones from YJ because they required less effort haha.

is it a matter of looking around? a starting bid on one door handle is 250 bucks, yet tripple carbs start at 50.

The LPG filler was there unfortunately. I have a piece cut ready to weld in there so it should be fixed soon.

Yeah make sure you look around, the thing with YJ is that if someone bids in the last 10 mins, the clock resets. This means it hard to get a "bargain" as such. It's not like eBay where you can snipe.

Agree with all the others, yours kind of makes me regret not going silver like I was going to go.

Very nice. One little thing though is that the GTR steering wheel didnt have the side horn things to my knowledge

A mate made this short Video of the lights and rear garnish installed, it's pretty average but I thought i't post it anyway. I'm not sure why it's so jerky.
