  1. Well, it has been a long time coming, but I finally got the car out to a car show. Went to the 30th Anniversary of the Edmonton Z Car Club Car show on Saturday. Wow! Where did all of these S30's come from! It was a great turnout with lots of great cars. I am over the moon thrilled with SASSZ and how she looks in the sunlight. We weren't the only ones apparently because we took first place for the S30 class and Best in Show to boot! Validation after all this time feels amazing... Thanks to everyone on this forum that have helped push me along with advice and encouragement, parts and knowledge.
  2. Installed the Techno Versions V Boost tach adapter last night. The ebay version, although functioning, tended to jump around a lot. The V Boost version has enough power to smooth the signal totally out! Still waiting on the replacement fuel pump. The stock unit can’t feed the volume anymore and is leaning out under load. Ordered a Walbro in line unit to replace it. This should also get rid of the pump noise that was driving me nuts.
  3. You really need a 3D printer to fix these nowadays. Parts are incredibly expensive or unobtainium new, and used parts are just as fragile. A good 3D file would be helpful. Not just the case, but the switch mechanism too.
  4. Always buy a pretty lady a drink…
  5. Half of that sheet metal was replaced... new fenders, cowl cover, floors, frames, nacelles and under-bumper panel..... ugh!
  6. 14 miles on the car! Went to Touge Bash at Stratotech in Fort Sask and won a Top Tier award!

  8. [emoji2957] wouldn’t that be nice?!
  9. Cut and polish day. I was hesitant to do a full wet sand, and I may still do that one day, but for now a hard cut and polish was enough to get her shiny enough to drive. I have a few clear coat sags that need sanding out eventually but I can live with that for now. I wouldn’t want to burn through the clear and have to respray before I even drove it!! IMG_4763.MP4
  10. Well, the rotational clunk is gone!! All the lasers actually helped. Still some little gremlins to sort like the speedo decided to stop working and now my power steering thinks I’m stopped and it’s on full power assist all the time..! Easy fix. Weather is crap this weekend so I will try and get a good pull down the road next week and send the data log to the tuner for evaluation. Onward!
  11. Verified the driveshaft has the preferred “droop” to keep the u joints working properly. Trans output is level, then checked the diff and it is level, then checked the driveshaft and there is about 2.5 degrees of drop down along the shaft to the diff. Very close to the “magic” 3 degrees!
  12. Checked the rear differential and half shaft alignment and all is good there now too.
  13. I love it. Would buy it in a heartbeat if the situation was different. Gotta get the other project started and the current one finished!!
  14. I have never felt such love for a truck before....
