Currently sitting with some radiator flush, I had no time this weekend to work on her due to some house drama that ended up me kicking the current roomy out for good.

I have been thinking I might still do the full SEV6 migration to the dark blue ca20 86 and part out the ca20/ sev6 broken chassis, and I might finish the red ca18det and play with it some and sell it off to do some updates / upgrades to the Z33.

I guess it is just how things are with my life currently that is making things a bit unnecessary for me to keep going and loosing motivation in everything because of the hard drama that keeps landing ontop of me.

No worries Wonderingraven, it could be a lot worse.  I'm sure working on your S12's provides an excellent escape and can be very therapeutic for the everyday drama that we deal with.  Just remember, we all love the work that you do to your babies.  Keep pushing forward.

Let the zen of turning wrenches wash the drama from your mind.
I was afraid all the five gallon buckets of pain stacked four high were going to fall over

it is very Zen-full when it is not 110+ outside and lately 100-110 with 60-90% humidity until it rains.
Hopefully I can order my module for the rev limit this paycheck, drama from my house is gone for good this time so I am in the clear now.

For now I really want to make her a bit more presentable and picture quality, I was thinking about either sticker bomb or the MCM glue + magazine with a clear coat over parts of the fenders and the rear 1/4 panel that has bare metal showing from the previous owner undoing the wreckage.

Or sand the messy spots and shaker can the spots with the similar light silver blue.

Well for a short update, found my overheating issue the generic head gaskets has failed

Will be pulling and replacing with an actual head gaskets that I know will work just fine.

Feels like I am the only one who updates the builds.

Well I am on the path of the breakdown,





On the good side the block is clean on the inside now.


That horrible casting tho! thanks nissan.


Passenger side it is hard to see the there was a small breakage under the 3rd cyl with the headgasket.


as you can see here, the headgasket failed at 4th and the 6th cyl.
