Rarity (1989 Nissan 240sx) 2012 02 11 (Parts Update)

Sooo it’s been a bit more than a week.  I’ve got the car titled, registered, and insured.  I also picked up some parts, and began stripping off the tint, and fixed a couple things.  I replaced the leaking fuel line that goes to the fuel filter, though I still need to fix the return line on the tank side.  I also replaced a missing bolt on the driveshaft.  I fixed the headlights and turn signals (though they still don’t go up on their own yet), and some of the interior wiring.  I’ve got some more parts on their way and they should arrive this week.  When they do, I’ll have a big crazy part party and throw all this stuff on..

Rarity (1989 Nissan 240sx) 2012 02 03 (Before)

So I picked up another 240 for the ‘shop car’ so to speak.  It’s an 89 240sx.  The previous owner had it for 7 years, had a freshly rebuilt dual cam and new tranny installed, and then let it sit for 2 years, unable to really complete it due to money issues.

I went and picked it up the other day for a decent price, put some new wheels on it, and limped it home.  The interior is junk, the electronics need work, exhaust is leaking, fuel lines are leaking, battery cables are crap… it just needs love.. Either way the body is at about 95% and the engine is wonderful.
