    1976 240K - full resto underway
  1. "I believe with very little work the classic L24 6cylinder DOHC will come alive again" Take all my money I want that motor
  2. so ive finally got round to welding in the new and improved spare wheel well. and patched the big hole in the boot. Thought that was about it but now found lots of rust in the bottom of the rear quarter. Ive cut it out and tried welding new plates in but its real difficult with limited access to it and the shape. So i will try to patch as well as i can and then killrust it all and smooth it with fibreglass filler
  3. Cut the welded on bracket for disk conversion which was quite tricky. All that's left now is hook up handbrake and brake line and that's passanger side done.
  4. found the wheel well i was using had rust in it, so i cut the whole bottom out and replaced it. ive seam sealed it, and will paint it. so got new brake shoes, and cylinders. started installing them and the pins, springs and retainers wernt looking great, so went to power brakes and... bang. new ones
  5. This is by far the nicest original k I've seen. Colour is awesome. I want it
  6. Well with some time off work thought I'd get stuck in. Removed drums off k frame I got from paddock car. Painted backing plate and ordered new protex brake cylinders and shoes off eBay. I've also started wire wheeling under the car as it's all surface rust and painting with killrust enamel. And finally took the grinder to the brilliantly welded in boot to cut out the 44 gallon drum lid out. Was hoping i sneezed so it'd fall out. Then To replace with new spare wheel well.
  7. I'm also after the 2 nuts for the stub axles as mine are damaged and a drive shaft got lots of spares to help with an exchange
  8. Cheers for the info. I was only just told about the acetone and ATF yesterday as I read it. Will have to give it a try. The edges of the stubs have been damaged as the bloke smacked them with a hammer. We restored them mostly with a thread file, now getting a mate to try with a die
  9. Got them off but now I'm afraid I may need a spare rear stub axel
  10. So at the moment I'm trying to sort the mess of my brakes out. The car came with r31 brake adaptor dodgily welded on and I want to replace with standard drums. The welds I think will have screwed the face that the drum sits on. So I removed whole k frame out paddock car but can't get the drums off! Soaked studs in wd40, tapped around it, levered with crow bar etc. there's the 2 threaded holes on front of drum but there's nothing to remove? Am I missing anything? So I'll prob have to change the passanger wishbone, due to the great welding, but what other options do I have. Any other drums a straight fit or any ideas how to get them off Cheers
  11. Far out they keep getting removed I want to see what they fetch
  12. Um I think the side skylines were about 80aud and rear one about 70. Off Yahoo japan. Yes I love my spares
  13. Nice eyebrow stainless on eBay for $200!!! Or 2 assbrows for 300!!
  14. so trying to get motivation to get stuck into the k again. my heater box was removed by the previous owner for whatever reason, so got one out of a wreck out and cleaned it all up and realised one of the clips is broken that controls the circulation. not only that im thinking theres going to be lots missing. what a pain. anyone have spare controls, clips or the likes? my parts are motivation broken clip
