The panel shouldn't need any pounding, thats how it came off of Premo's car!  The shapes should still be just as they need to be.....

I'll look at your welder, it probably is ok, its just a matter of how you use it/ particular technique.

I had those style rims on my notch when I got it, but they were all bent to shit.  So yeah, I have a full set of lugs for it

I'm disappointed on how these turned out resolution-wise, as they were converted-to-digital film pics, but clearly that camera is just shitty.  I have a new one now, so life is good.

Hole in the floor, fixed, but have no after shots!  Oh well.  Only caused because carpet wore thru (I don't think any of the previous owners ever had floormats) did this happen, otherwise everything was ok.  No rust coming up from the bottom


Driver's side, damaged material removed,


Ground down, with new material patched in,


Primed, painted pics just came out all shiny.  Then rubberized undercoating was applied for complete seal.


Passengers side, more damaged, more material replaced.


More metal added, primed.  Painted, later applied undercoating (Kyle did after getting it)



Frame rails done!  with the other reinforcement welds I made back there, a good deal stronger than stock.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

Lol some of them turned out so nicely!  Pisses me off that the camera didn't focus on them  oh well.  Chassis is stronger now, that was the point.

Sure, but that will probably have to be done another time (I'm not sure if we'll have enough time).  We'll figure that out.

I looked at those summit pedals, but I'm thinking they won't work so well, the floor really isn't reinforced at all right there, and I think you'll end up just bending the shit out of it.  Keep an eye out for the stock one...

I got a stock one. Comes with the junkyard clutch master too. I was thinking of using this on my blue car a while back, but now I'm keeping this as a spare... With the right offer I might be swayed. PM me and we'll talk.

I wouldn't put an old one on (clutch master cyl).  A rebuilt or new one would be the way to go, this stuff is getting old, and for the work, I'd rather have a new one.  I don't think they're too pricey...

Pedals are pedals, thats what he's really after- the pedal and mounting assly- a new clutch master can be bought here   maybe he'll get it from you, I wish I still had my extra set lols so we could just use those.

clutch master cylinders are cheap, they can be had for around $25 brand new from the dealer, mine personaly was 'scavenged' from my broke 94 d21 nissan truck, they are physically the same from what i can tell, i used the trucks cause it allways worked and was newer looking than the one i got from the junkyard with my trans. the pedals on the other hand are somewhat harder to come by, the clutch anyway the break can just be cut and covered. the clutch pedals for every nissan i ever owned all have diffrent ajustment points so i would assume they are not the same you'll nead one of these ment for a s12
