  1. I've seen a few posts similar to this, and in all of them the comments are full of people bagging the idea of putting a roof rack on a sling, to this I say, my car my life. I am currently looking to get the genuine roof racks for an r34 sedan, my car still has the mounts on the roof and as I live in the country and travel a lot it will suit my needs. I've been unable to find any and just want to be pointed in the right direction or even want to buy some. I will attach photos of the mounts. The closest thing I've found is an old Japanese catalogue with the r33 ones listed.
  2. So this is my first ever write up and unfortunately I didn’t take very many progress pictures but I will try my best to explain the process with some picture aids ?? Materials: * plastic floor trim 96in x 6in x 5/16 (x2) you can get these at Lowe’s or Home Depot * 3 inch L brackets (x8) Found at Lowe’s * Self tapping screws ( to mount brackets to car) * Hardware to mount bracket to skirt extensions ( I used black license plate hardware with plastic backings x16) Tools: Grinder, drill, something to cut the plastic trim with. Process: So for a sedan with stock type M skirts the overall length is 73 inches (coupes might be different I suggest measuring before cutting). After this you want to get the skirt extension as level as you can between the front and rear low points to do this I used various objects like toolboxes and children’s books I started with measuring out the two brackets that would be in the center of the skirt, I measured from the top of the pinch weld to the bottom of the skirt extension. If i remember correctly it was roughly 1.25-1.5 inches, always cut bigger than you think as you can grind down the bracket until you have a perfect fit. The end result would be for the top of the bracket to be flush with the top of the pinch weld, Once you have the bracket cut to the right spot and the bottom arm of the bracket gently rests against the skirt with the various objects keeping the skirt level then you mark the hole with a sharpie and install the bracket. Once you have the two center brackets installed to the car you can drive some temp screws through the bottom of the skirt extension to hold it in place as well as Mark the holes for the permanent hardware. Now it’s time to work on the ends, these are a little more complex to line up and install as you have to more aware of the jacking locations. Front Rear For the front I had to turn my steering wheel to gain access to inside of the wheel well and feel for a flush surface to mount the bracket to, as i held the bracket against the surface and lined it up with the bottom of the skirt extension i used a sharpie to mark the hole and kinda outline the bracket so i had a general idea of where to drill once I jacked the car up and got under it. If you’re pretty coordinated you could probably just blindly full send a screw through the hole. Same concept applied to the rear. Just make sure you have plenty of space between the bracket and the jack pad as you will have to trim the inside of the skirt to have room to use the the jack pads. Once the skirt extension is mounted you can mark where you need to cut to allow a floor jack access to the pads. Once the ends are installed drive some temp screws through the bottom of the skirt extension. Or just mark the holes on the bottom with a sharpie to drill later. Now all that’s left is marking the area to cut for the jack pads, uninstall the skirt extension and make the cuts. Unfortunately my car is too low to use the jack pads without the floor jack arm making contact with the skirt extension, to get around this I either jack up the car from the differential, use the emergency jack, or you could potential use something on the floor jack pad to help it gain elevation before the arm makes contact with the extension. After i made the cuts i reinstalled everything with the temp screws through the bottom of the skirt extension and made sure everything was still level. Once I was happy with it I uninstalled everything including the brackets and prepped for paint. At this point I drilled out the holes to accommodate the permanent hardware ( I would try and find something that has a really flush bolt head for a cleaner look) Once the extensions and brackets are painted it’s time to install everything, make sure you remember which bracket goes where or you will be making extra adjustments and possibly drilling new holes. To install the hardware through the top you will need to install the brackets to extensions first then install the entire assembly on the car. After the brackets are installed on the extension I would suggest to install the center two brackets first and then work the ends. I hope this write up helps anyone trying to do this, and if you have any questions send me a pm and I’ll do my best to answer them ??

  11. Hi all, Up for sale is my 1978 datsun C210 skyline sedan. Bought the car with plans to restore it but became to hard as the car is at my dads property and I lost my license so didn't have a way to get there to finish it and it has sat there since. Car had a fair bit of rust but got rid of most of it apart from the passenger rear door (which I have a rust free new old stock door ready to go on which cost me 600 delivered and is included in the sale) and the rear left quarter panel behind the wheel arch. The rest was removed by myself but some has started to return after sitting for a while. Mechanically car is great and runs well and hasn't been thrashed as I bought it off an elderly couple and have only driven it a few times since. Interior is great apart from the dash cover which has started to peel back from the sun but to the best of my knowledge the dash underneath is good. Has vinyl roof which has started to dry out and crack from the sun. Also have some C210 fender mirrors which will be included in the sale. Doesn't blow smoke and doesn't leak oil. 96,638km on the clock. Selling to buy 80 series landcruiser or n/a r34 sedan so open to swaps if you have either that aren't wrecked. Located Gold Coast, Qld. Car is on eBay if you want to have a look just look up 1978 C210 Skyline. Any questions ring me on 0415 835 930. Asking price is $5500

  13. Help - 370Z 19" Rays ENG Rim to fit V36 sedan Hey guys, New to the forum I would really appreciate if anyone can help/advise. I have a V 36 sedan, and would like to fit the 370Z 19" Rays ENG Forged Rims. I've seen them on a V36's before. When I test fitted the rear rim it stuck out about an inch. Is there a way that I can make them fit? I love the look of the rims on the v36 just can't see how other owners have managed to fit them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, im sorry if this question has been covered before I couldn't find it on the forum. Yours in Skylineism,
  14. V35 sedan Hi guys, have been searching through this vq section and finally getting some knowledge about these imports! decided to make my own thread and put all my questions in one place! bought myself an 02 v35 sedan 6 speed manual, has sunroof and factory bose audio. Always had a soft spot for the VQ range so I picked it up knowing there was clutch issues although having receipts of a clutch replacement after reading through the common slave cyl / master cyl failures, jumped under and found it is leaking from the high pressure hose that connects to the slave. Some heat shield was missing so maybe overheated and cracked. Hoping this is an easy order and straight replace from justjap Also read about the horror stories of the 8 speed auto cvt failures, and how people have been replacing them with 6 speed manuals, i sighed with relief having baught the 6 speed, but then noticed an 'extroid CVT' badge on my rear window, and now think maybe this car used to be the dreaded gt-8? As my centre console doesn't fit correctly/missing parts, and appears to be altered (especially around the gear stick. the left foot rest (on left of clutch) also appears to be missing. Is this removed from an auto or did manuals also come with them? I have posted pics but using iPhone so may have to scroll down. Looking at replacing the 20' chromies as tread is MIA and I hate chrome. Thinking of 17/18s with a more aggressive offset and concave design. Would +12 be enough to have a lil poke? Current wheels don't show any ET. Will get a staggered set of 8' front and 10' at the rear. Guards have already been rolled Drivers side window motor likes to wind itself down so will be replacing it from a stagea once i find a local wrecker. Will also get some tint on the front to match factory rear window tint (guessing it will be like my x-trail which had 20% from factory on rear windows) Does anyone know if the Nismo square twin tips are from factory? Doesn't make the best sound so may replace it, or just a complete new catback its a shame about the radio freq. seek range and unusable sat nav but thinking about chasing up chris rogers (strangely enough one of my closest irl mate's name haha) for a wiring harness to connect aux and possibly connect a reverse camera like a few of you have done, although the step by step tutorial is 7 years old and all picture links are broken haha. thx for listening to me ramble on, would love to hear some feedback! - gaz

  18. Fuel pump not receiving power hey guys, so i have recently starting working on my 98 four door i have gotten it turning over with the starter but it is getting no fuel. i pulled the pump and have found a replacement for it, ready to go but decided to test the connections and found there is no power. i have traced it back, checked fuses, got to the relay and found there is only one relay and two terminals. so questions are: is the fuel pump relay in the boot behind the brake lights? the color of the cable running to the pump and to these terminals seem to be different how do i tell if a relay is working? i have a multimetre but i am only getting continuity on some posts. do both connections require a relay?

Hopefully someone here can help me out! Thanks, Alex

  22. Wanted to buy. C34 stagea or a TURBO R34 sedan open to all colours and options vic car preferred but will travel, and if mint to you is something that gets washed with wire wheel and haemorrhaging fluids, then move along. rwc would be nice but again, I can work around that. 0411421097
  23. First off, hi this is my first post on this site. I've been lurking for a while and reading up on lots of good threads here. Anyway, I've been trying to search a while and wanted to know if anyone is running a Harness bar in their 4 R32s? Heck, even just R32 in general. I can't find too much on this, maybe because I'm in the US? I really want to run a harness bar so I can wrap the belts around the bar and still use the rear seats. Also, because of the fear of spinal compression.
  24. I am chasing an R34 GTT sedan front (left) passenger door lock actuator in good working condition, mine's getting tired. Control rods optional. Please let me know what you have by PM. Like this but the opposite side:
