The Cookie Monster is now sitting 4" higher :-)

I finished the bod work on the car! Just super impressed with how it turned out and I wanted to share :)   What I started with: 20150820_151132 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr 20150823_114502 by Mitch

Cleans up pretty good

I don't think that air flow is going to be an issue. The OEM intake is/was way more restrictive than a 2" diameter in sections (if it's similar to the intake on a Pathy with the same motor). Here's pics of the stock set-up on the Pathfinder. One section was only 1.5" in diamater!

If you don;t like the Neon idea, maybe cover it in Union Jack stickers :p

How do they ride?

They ride really good, rims a little pushed out now so turning radius has changed a bit.

What did you do with the spacers?

I still have the spacers if your interested . I went through an ordeal with them my old steel rims with aluninum spacers in the middle, touching steel axles. I guess the aluminum was softening up cause the spacers to shift and then all of my lugs got warped/snapped off. And to top that the inside of my hubs were all bored out for the same thing. If you do want em I'll snap a few pics, only two of them have noticeable damage. Something you'd throw on temporarily but I'd never run them again.

Ps, think there only 1/4 "

No you should just toss those then... I need 1.25" spacers that actually bolt onto the hubs, and then the rim bolts to the spacer on the studs on the spacer...

Yesterday I pulled the seats and carpet so I could fix two holes (which turned into 3), and check the rest of the floor out. The only place that was bad was right over the muffler. I fixed the holes up, cleaned the whole floor, and sprayed the entire thing with a good coat of LPS 3.

I cleaned the mounting feet for the seats up too, painted them, and sprayed LPS 3 on them after I put the seats back in.

A day late... but I started it for the first time in about four weeks (fired right up) and then I pretended it was a rally car.

It started to drift like one at one moment :) was a good day.

So yesterday my transmission linkage fell off at the transmission end. (Burb) Good job I was just putting it in reverse, sitting on level ground!

The short story is I shut the engine off, chocked the wheels and crawled underneath and shifted into Drive, unchocked the wheels, started 'er up and drove home! Where I again parked her on level ground and put her back in Park. I wil re-attach it tonight.

It felt weird driving knowing you can't go into reverse or park easily! And I could start it, because the 'Start only in Park or Neutral' lock-out is controlled at the column shift end. I just left it in 'Park' the whole time.

      Worked at the West Jeddore search 5 pm till midnight Monday night.  Traffic control and a 3km bushwhack.
      Working the search Tuesday 10 pm till daylight Wednesday morning.  Transportation with the F250.  Using bright flashy lights when loading and unloading folks on the roadside.  Going to recline the seat and get a bit of shut eye for a couple minutes....
