Progress on my projects seem to be a little slow but there are two reasons: First we have brilliant spring weather which doesn't happen too often here. so i decided to enjoy the nice weather and second: Im doing a lot of background research and work so there IS a lot of progress on the fairlady but nothing to show
However i decided to enjoy the nice weather today again and combine it with a little EK9-trip. But i had some issues i wanted to clear before i go out. First was the broken TopFuel mirror. I broke it a while back when i wanted to install it better then my first attempt. Here i'm removing the broken mirror:
Glass removed from the mounting case (black, in the back), and applying the new one. You can see i added two layers of the black tape to the mirror-glass itself. And (this is important) one layer to the black mounting case. otherwise the glass will not stay safely!
Done. I installed it back in the car later, but forgot to take a shot
Next was the Rear tow hook. this is the original tow hook thing:
My plan was to install th is setup:
Worked fine but need to figure out how i can make it stay in one position. probably need to stuff something into the blank space. we'll see..
Also had a look at the front Tow strap installation but decided rather than dissasembling the whole front and and then not finishing up due to missing screws i'll better hop into the care, drive it around our local hills and then give it a nice wash. Thats exactly what i did
