Some say I'll have to sand to down to metal if I ever decide to paint it?

Default Painted the junkyard seats

I painted the Pathfinder seats with Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric paint burgandy
picture upload site

The original ones were burgandy and the Pathfinders grey




I ended up using 3 cans at 10.00 each at. You need to lay down at least 3 coats on the fabric and maybe two coats in the vinyl.

The original carpet is burgandy but I think I'm going to go with black for the replacement. Way too many shades if burgandy going on here.

Default One piece driveshaft replacement

Well I replaced my carrier bearing and it lasted a couple of weeks.
I found a 2001 Frontier with a one piece driveshaft at the junkyard . I have read that the direct replacement shaft needs to be from a Frontier Crew Cab but this truck is a regular cab long bed. It looks like the Frontier shaft is an inch or so longer.
Will this shaft work on my D21 4x4 extended cab? Thanks in advance

If it won't, you could get it shortened. That can usually be done fairly cheap, because all of the components are there. The shop would just have to lathe the weld off, shorten the tube, true it up and reweld.

Dang. Nice work. Did you shampoo the seat or any other prep before painting?

MoJo how are those seats holding up? Been a few months and wondering if you ran into anything we should know about...

Yeah I think I'll go get it. I paid more for the carrier bearing.

No I didn't shampoo the seats but I should have. Dust was coming up through the seats.
As far as the paint. It is fading in some areas. I think it might be a good idea to use one can per seat.

I removed the one piece driveshaft from a 2001 Frontier Long Bed. It might work if I use the Yoke from the two piece driveshaft. I think it might have been a direct replacement if the donor vehicle was a 4x4.
Here's the video
