Default Vegas 1991 D21 Progress

Starting my build log for my 1991 Nissan Pickup D21 King cab

I purchased this great truck on 08/28/2014 with 170xxx or so miles on it

My plans for it is to make it into a nice toy truck to take off roading.

I prefer to do things at home DIY style because I don't trust to many people working on my truck and I like to save money.

Here are a couple pictures the day after I got it.





The things done to the truck are listed here
-replaced U-joints (on drive shaft)
-replaced Wheel Cap
-re-indexed the t-bars (so she sits level)
-removed the old tint
-installed headlight cages
-made new splash guards
-got cup holders


In the works

-Repair the rear passenger fender well (previous owner had a blow out and the tire ripped off the fender flare and chewed up the mudflap)
-Off Road LED bars
-Off Road Bumper with wench
-Tow hitch
-New windshield (mine has a crack from a rock chip) :P
-New Paint Job (white)
-Upgraded Suspension (any suggestions?)
-Build Skid Plate
-Reupholster Interior Seats
-Reseal Transmission and transfer case

Pic-a-part Pickings


-
Almost good as new old greasy rim cleaned with Eagle One Wheel and Tire cleaner to replace my old spare tire.


Old Spare


A Nissan Pickup finally showed up with a integrated windshield antenna so I had to take it. To replace my cracked windshield.

Thanks for checking out this page and if you have any comments, tips, or questions, Id be glad to help

Update 11/24/2014

Today I tweeked the t-bars a little more and went to get an alignment and got the truck pretty leveled. The shop told me that I had one tire that was a tad smaller than the others and I hadn't noticed until today lol. The front tire on the drivers side is smaller that all the others. Not sure if its a big deal and the truck doesn't seem to pull right but Im going to get it checked out at the shop that the tires came from. and maybe get it replaced
Drivers side ^

The other three ^





While Getting the Alignment I started repairing the windshield I removed a few days ago because I goofed up the antenna with a razor blade I managed to scrape right across the middle of the antenna strip when I was cleaning off tape residue.

Took a chance and repaired it with this stuff I saw at pepboys a while ago.

Its meant for defroster guide lines but I figured its conductive and should mend the antenna strip.


Here's the paste

So I made a gap between tape and painted a new antenna strip on top of the antenna wire in the middle


Peeled the tape off carefully after three coats of the conductive paint and It turned out looking pretty damn good. But I wont know if Its functional until I actually go out and test it.


Then I tested the cup holder to see how it would stand with a 32oz drink
It held up great and didn't spill when I speed up to merge onto the freeway


Lastly Here is a pic of the cages on my headlights thanks @87kingcab

Chips, I've used that stuff to repair one of the power pins on a hard drive - worked like a charm for years afterward!

Thanks, I'm curious to find out if it will actually work for this application, lol.

I saw only one connector on the antenna connector wire so I figure it'd be just like soldering a split wire. But instead of solder use this stuff.

We will soon find out If you can repair a damaged windshield antenna once I install the windshield.

Just gotta get it Tinted first

Next time I go to Radio Shack, I'm gonna look at the electronic chemical section - they used to carry just the bottle of solution.
