Those are some fancy looking calipers for sure, and a new oil pump and dipstick too, you’re definitely not cutting corners. I wonder what company actually makes those Mitsubishi bearings ?

My 240sx Is Finally Going To The Beauty Parlor

Geez Tim that sounds nice :lust: The sunset pics are coming soon, probably be a few weeks though. My brakes are starting to hit the squealers, I just ordered $300 in brake parts (rotors, pads, lines, caliper pistons and rebuild kits all around) so I have more 240 fun in front of me. (::) I need to t...

You can use that 409 Carpet cleaner on just about any type fabric, so I'd say it would work fine for seats too, unless they're leather :P I've had good luck with Resolve Fabric Cleaner you can get at Publix. Mothers makes a car seat cleaner, I know it smells nice but not sure how well it works.

My 240sx Is Finally Going To The Beauty Parlor

Found this pic searching for old photos of the 240, it was 6 years ago this month at C&C. Tim gave me a fun “spirited” ride in the Nova :thumbwink: Fun day. We need to update this photo. :)

You’re right Loren, I was stuck in heavy traffic on US19 and was looking at all the cars, and it was a ocean of white, gray, and black bland cookie cutter car and SUV designs.

Thanks guys :thumbwink:

I gave the Honda some much needed love, wash/detail, and oil change. Don’t think she likes her sibling ;)

Wow, that’s some serious sound deadening on the carpet, looks like it’s in good shape too, the “hose spraying the fitted carpet” pic made me laugh, been there. :-D

Geez, 350hp from a 4 pot, if you said that back in the day, when that number for big block V8s was respectable, you would get laughed at. Are you going to get it bench dynoed when it’s done ?

Tim, It sounds pretty mean under load, almost like the engine sound in the commercial, I’m finding myself driving a bit more aggressive just to hear it, the resonator really works well to eliminate the drone at cruising speed. It’s a very nice system that gives you the best of both worlds, and it do...

Installed the 3” cat back exhaust today, looks great, sounds great, fit right in with no issues, seems to run better too. I’m not sure why I didn’t do this many years ago...... https://i.postimg.cc/wBvLFC63/A445-C887-B9-A7-4-F57-BC84-7207-EBA0-D180.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/3wcpqtR1/4-F66-F908-2581-4...

If at 8 months the car is not roadworthy...disposal! US frowns on Americans and their non-running car collections many of us like. Rare to see an older car here... Seriously, we can apply for another extension, but I got the hint that more than 90 days is a win and we got 14 months currently. Good ...

Looks great. :thumbwink: If you bring it to Dupont at Armature Works on March 20th with the Hubcaps, it's going to see a huge crowd especially when people see it's a manual. Thanks for the love. I would like to attend that, but I have to finish up installing a few more parts and dealing with a timi...

Got the 240 back from the detail shop today, thanks Steve ! :thumbwink: Got the ceramic coating done on the car and the 17 inch autocross wheels. Joe also painted the rear wheel wells. He did a fantastic job, all the swirl marks are gone, and the areas where the paint was a bit lighter from a rushed...
