But its got no major rust, frame rails are relatively spotless and minor surface rust here and there. Body ain't in the greatest shape though.....blown motor, trans/rear end is supposedly good though.

Pics after it came off the trailer.


Dont know where exactly going im going with this car yet, going to get it running first.

Yes LoL, isn't there a "last comic standing" you should be at ? Very Happy too funny!. tow dolly brought it home, she's defiantly rough....a lil' paint and bondo will make her look good.

It feels nice having a car without "shift cables".

Maybe it's the old in me talking, but I HATE the tinted tail lights. They are so hard to see in the daylight.

Car looks like it has potential, keep us posted.

It is the old in you, its the old in me also I agree.
I look forward to your KA-T build. Sometimes I wish that I went that route instead.

You have a lot of junk in your trunk, but I bet the Tundra you towed it with had no problem. Very Happy

Took all the parts out of the trunk and began organizing it all. Im not familiar with nissan motors at all but it looks like everything is there internally at least.







Then.......after i pulled back the carpet and spare tire i got a nice surprise. The car has no front/rear 5mph bumpers so it looks like the trunk floor took all the abuse. Kinda hard to see but you get the idea.....looks like i'll bust out the sledge hammer.

dont beat it out, if the seems havent split yet, they will when you try to hammer it out. Its not pretty but not going to effect you in anyway.

I finally found another lifted 240. You've got a much wheel gap as I do.

It looks like you're doing pretty well. Remember to silicone up those tail lights pretty good when you go to reinstall or they'll leak into your tire well.

Yea the dog looks cute as long as you dont get to know her! She has a severe excessive barking that'll drive you nuts!

Thanks on the tip about the taillights! I was wondering if that was a o.e.m. thing or the OP silconed them up?, never seen that before.
