    Default well time to build a new daily

    well as the topic states time for me to build another beater/daily. the 6th gen has served well but its starting to show its 240,000 miles and injuries suffered from daily battle.

    so the new mule will be something a hair more sporty but its not a celica, not even a toyota, Gasp!!.

    once again i will be venturing into the world of nissan.

    heres what im starting with:
    black 93 240sx se fastback loaded non hicas (non 4ws) with crap seats and light rodknock, picked it up for a song.

    i drove it with it knocking for 3 months and parked it.

    List of shit thats shot:
    rod bearing #2
    dash
    seats
    center console trim
    shift knob :its stripped
    rr brake caliper sticks
    clutch
    brakes
    windsheild
    door panels and master switch
    nasty carpet
    passenger fender
    ps pump and leaky rack

    this seems like a good bit to replace but heres the list of stuff i have due to a free parts car and local 240 peeps

    good stuff:
    front ss brake hoses
    healthy 93 ka24de w/assesorys and harness
    dash
    07 tiburon front seats
    passenger seat out of friends 96 240sx parts car
    short shifter
    aluminum rad
    3 inch hks catback
    header
    test pipe
    new autozone clutch
    spare rust free hatch
    18x7.5 motegi ff5's
    spare tails
    black carpet
    door panels
    passenger fender
    maxima front brake setup with 11 inch 4 lug rotors
    almost new rear rotors
    rear calipers
    ps rack
    intake
    window switches and masters
    oem mats
    lowering springs with new front struts
    bunch of other misc spare stuff

    and all that except the clutch (gift card) and motor (250) was under 300 dollars

    so now i basicly need a seal/gasket kit, waterpump, belts, windsheild, and a paint job (ima sand it to hell then send it over to my friend that works at macco) and im set on this one.

    only other future plans is redo the stereo(ill just switch what i can from the 6th gen but will be looking for a newer headunit later on) , run dual exaust cams, and put in a 3.90 vlsd from an infinity j30

    I've always thought those 240s were nice Nissans. Really it'd be one of the only older Nissans I'd drive. Nice pick. Hopefully its not too much trouble for you.

    I'll try and get pics up by Monday, I already hung the exaust and started on the suspension. I hope to start tearing the interior out by then.

    2/5/11 edit:

    shocks n springs are on, no mo 4x4 stance, and turns out the rear shocks are still very good (previous owner seems to have replaced the shocks and springs with new oem stuff)

    if i dont get to hammered sunday night me and lil ms puerto rico are going to start tearing the interior out monday and ill try to get pics up.

    yeah i still need to rectify that, hopefully i can at the dragon this year

    interior is done cept for the stereo (wiring is done) and i need to dye the back white leather seat black to match the rest of my interior

    engine is almost done, just gotta bolt on the intake and odds n ends. ive determined that this engine will not be in the rest of the life of this car unless i sell it soon, well at least the head anyway it needs a vavle job on the exaust side on cylinder one but i need this car mobile by tuesday at the latest. later ill redo the bottom end on the old motor as it ran strong and didnt smoke.

    found that the lower control arms, n ball joints were shot in the front so i got some pillowball adjustible ones cheap.

    if my genious friend turns my front rotors soon ill install my upgraded brakes tomarrow night.


    if its not finished by saturday night im taking sunday - tues off to finish it and do maintance on the beater before it goes to its new home.

    Anyhoo, I missed a main ground wire now it seems to run great. Ps line and high pressure hose are shot so I'm going to use an s14 line n pump. At the moment I'm doing the brakes and tomarrow I may put on my adjustable lca's and proceed to test drive.

    do to my job ive gone 2500 ish miles in about 3 weeks, it only broke once injector got hung open and i ended up using a quarter tank to get 15 miles. which resulted in a sub tune up, oil change, and replacing the injector and tossing it into the fire pit.

    heres where im at

    front speakers need rewiring
    one hatch shock is dead (mini vise grips work wonders)
    i have a slight oil leak (mystery)
    ebay adjustilde front lca are junk (im going back to stock)
    front shocks are crap (have spares)
    lowering springs i got for cheap...are meh, rides like stock just sits lower
    i hate automatic seat belts

    despite all this it still is a blast to drive

    ive tried loading pics but my comp is goofy, ill try my roomates later on
