Asked on FB why my feet were wet on my passenger floor board.



"AC drain tube is clogged and box-o-leaves behind glove box."






Yep, I think I found the issue.

That's normal when buying one of these used, also a firs hazard as the blower resistor is in there (part on your floor)

I love it when new parts arrive.

4x4 Parts d o t com and UPS bringing the goods.

Beefy front skid plate, 30% stiffer torsion bars w/rubber boots, medium duty leaf springs.



I'm still waiting on the Rear Diff Skid Plate and the Idler Arm Brace from the same supplier (separate orders).

I also ordered a Nismo tranny mount from Rugged Rocks. I love Nismo mounts on my B13, I figured I'd give it a shot. Wish they offered Nismo engine mounts, I would have bought them too.

My buddy who owns a shop (Ashton Automotive & Performance) in Killeen, will add in some Bilstein HD shocks front and rear. Do everything else suspension related with oem replacement. Bushings, bumpstops, motor mounts, and anything else that needs addressing.

Should be a sweet daily-driver work truck suspension.

Yeah I saw those.


I am familiar with both Prothane and Nismo mounts. Nismo got the durometer just right.



No thank you on a mount made out of steel and polyurethane for this old man.


Not unless wife starts destroying Nissan oem rubber mounts.

For the last month I have been waiting on some parts I ordered and staying busy refreshing my interior. It's a farm truck, but I want it clean, comfortable and everything working.


I had the seats redone at a shop. Drivers side got foam and material, pass foam was fine so just material.



5 dollar junkyard cover, 4 zipties. Beautiful.




Headliner, visors redone as well. Fixtures cleaned up, new bulbs.




Dash has been soaked in Maguires a couple times.




I've got multi-part Sem plastic paint coming. Going to do the steering column, rear view mirror and seat plastic side covers all in black. Possibly the center console as well, not sure.

I haven't done anything to the exterior except attempt to remove the brush-guard/bull-bar. Got it halfway there and temporarily stymied.



Gratuitous shot.

Thanks. As I'm gonna be in this truck alot, I'm trying to do it nice enough so I'm comfortable. Without getting it so slicked up I don't want to work it hard.

Thank you sir. It's coming along pretty nice.



Obviously matching 20+ year old fabric is a no-go. So I figured the black would match the interior trim like the vents, dash controls section and gauge pod. Then I'll redo a few more plastic trim pieces in black, and those seats will look like they came oem from Nissan.


I appreciate the input gentlemen.





Next up for the interior: Replace/fix the pass door lock mechanism and tint the windows.
