Bought a new (old) car. Another k10 next to zero rust anywere. 59,000 on the clock

It has 35mm lowered springs all round.

14 inch Nissan alloys ( if anybody knows what they are off please say)

Needs a service

4 gears which is nice also

Travelled 200 miles to get it

Tonight i took the coilovers apart.

Used my new birthday tool

Clarke 1000w impact wrench



Was £60

Really good at stuff like wheel nuts hub nut ect but wouldnt do coilover top nut. I guess because the shaft was spinning with it.

Coilover cut out from last car.



Bottom bush fell out of shock. I thought what is goin on here?



Closer inspection i found the previous owner of these had wrapped green electrical tape round the bush, which had failed miserably.

Tried the wellers on for size





They stick out a bit. So will have to get an arch roller and have a go at streching them.

Them wellers look awesome!
Yer i love them. The only thing i dont like is that they are redrilled. But one day i will get the holes welded up and resprayed.

Just looking at getting the arches rolled as much as i can because i dont want to get arch extenders if i can help it.

Previous owner said exhaust was leaking from underneath. Actually found it was coming from the manifold to exhaust join.

So ordered these







Couldnt remember if it was the rubber gasket or not so i ordered both

My K10's exhaust was leaking from the join between the manifold and downpipe when i first got it, turns out the bolts were loose!
Yer this one has got so much exhaust putty around it i suspect its got no gasket

This weekend i started on the lower coilover bushes which were cover in tape.



Started with 2 part mix which is amazing. If anybody is in any doubt its about £20 and you could prob get 10 or 15 bushes made out of it. Quality stuff tough, durable just what i needed.

Then i taped the lower mount up





I then put the metal collar into the middle of the mount and poured the mixture around it.





The mixture went off within about 3 hours but to fully set needs 24 hours

Wait? You can use that stuff to make bushes out of? Thats blooody fantastic! Keep us updated on how well it holds up. If it works well i have quite a few uses for this stuff haha

Yer i presume you can. I did some research before buying it, i think it was somebody on drift works who i saw use it.

Standard shocks with 35 mm lowered springs on them. Springs in really good condition. So if any body wants some 35mm springs to buy or go swap for something give me a shout

Body work is mint. Just dust here no rust



None here either



Did find this though. I might have a go at trying to repair. Seems a shame to chuck away
