Reincarnation

Finally getting back around to my project Nissan. It will still be a slow one, as I'm trying to build my new shop area at the same time. It was my daily driver up till about 6 months ago when I wrecked the front. I had big plans for it, so why fix it to the way it was. Started collecting parts or at least trying to. I've put 31's back on it, on a set of rims I had left over from before. Got it loaded on the trailer to bring to the shop to start some of the work. First thing will be ditching the body lift, fixing the front alignment, at least close enough to drive it around a little. Pulling the front clip, because of the accident, and straightening as much as possible. I also have a parts truck with a fairly straight front section. I still need to pick up a set of fenders and a hood though. Trip to the junk yard will fix that. I'll get a couple of before pics tonight. Looks like a beat nissan w/ a bodylift and little 31's on it!! more to come on the build plans!!

I've got so many projects and so many plans, there is no telling where this one will end up. I did put the sami to rest for a while, that will let me get more time and money into this one. For sure the front will be getting a little work, bed will get bobbed and the ifs will head for the junk yard. But, all in good time. It will be a slow build, due to multiple projects, but it will get somewhere. Started the thread a little early, just cause there aren't many build threads in here and its been kinda slow. A little more tear down coming tonight, pics will be up tomorrow.

The frame is fine, it went under the other truck, probably wouldn't of had quite as much damage if it weren't for the body lift.

Little more taking apart today, nothing special, still nursing a hangover from last night, takin' it easy

Little more progress, cut up some off the front and have most everything off the the fenderwells and out of the way. Forgot to bring the camera, so no pics, but it doesn't look much different anyway.

Still no pics I'll get some tomorrow. Got the body lift off this afternoon; hopefully I'll get the front figured out tomorrow, what I need to cut What I need to straighten.

Got last minute tickets to the Florida St. vs. Florida game.
Kinda ruined the weekend for working on the truck though. Did go find some fenders and hood at the junk yard, I'll be back to working on it again tomorrow.

Told ya I was slow, but it'll get done one of these days, hense New/Old Build!!
Got some pics of it tonight and a couple I forgot to load before.




Here are a couple from tonight. The fendersa are not on, just kinda hung there. Got them sitting kinda narrowed. I like the look, but don't know if I want to go through the trouble.




And a pic of hoe the shifters are sitting now that I took the body lift off. I'll definately have to trim them down!!

Did you know camera batteries puke there guts if you leave them in the charger to long

Been getting a little work done here and there, pics as soon as I go get some batteries. I decided to narrow it, whew, lots of work. Still trying to get it all lined up right and straight, most of it tack welded in place for now. the hood is still gonna be a chore. I want to get it on the road again, so it might might be running around without a hood for a little while. Still trying to hunt down a front end. Found a 10 bolt for now, like to find a 44, but there is not much difference.

Not a whole lot changed, been busy. But I do have the pics to post!



This side was a little easier, because the other side was crushed in a lot further. This is where I would cut again givin' the choice.



The back of the fender still lines up fairly well.



Kinda hard to tell, but you can see how much of the tire is out in the front.



Of course the grill is not in the right spot, but you can see how much narrower it is. I still have the marker lights to go as well!! It will be a lot more work this way, but if I'm gonna put this much time into it, I ought' to do it the way I want it!!

It's Car Domain shit, try to refresh, sometimes they work sometimes they don't. We will be starting a new site soon that I'll be able to link all my shit off of. One of these days I might chip in here so I don't have to dick with it.
