240SX Update 12/12/16

The Build

Bought the bottom half of some rear seats and a dash cover lol. Couldn’t get the other half for your back because one of the release hooks where broken off.


I don’t know what the bottom seat material is called but it’s the same as S14 seats and it’s a lot softer than the regular tweed like the one above it. 




Looks pretty whack lol I’ll just wait for some other rear seats to pop up and then I’ll scoop those.

Bought the dash cover just because. Not sure if I like the look or not.

I rarely post on here so I just wanted to show what I recently picked up. Thanks for reading!

Turn signal lever replacement S13

The Build

My headlights wouldn’t flip down so I bought this from the dealership I work at. Looked online and read that the leads/contact points on these things get burnt out or corroded or something that doesn’t make a good connection anymore. I was unsure if replacing this would fix it but luckily it did.

Heres the part number if anyone needs it.


Pretty simple to install. Just remove the steering column trim and then it’s just one plug and a couple screws (forgot how many there were) holding it in.

Lol look at the difference compared to the wiper lever.


Thanks for reading!

Chase Bays Power Steering Line install S13

The Build

So I finally fixed my power steering leak!      It went out my last summer in 2015 and I just never bothered to fix it. The leak was coming from the high pressure line that connected to the rack and the pump.

               Here’s a half ass side by side comparison:

But yeah had the opportunity to do it at work which made it heaps easier since the car is on lift. My friend Casey was nice enough to stay back to help out and keep me company.




So I removed the intercooler piping and whatever else was in the way.

Sorry for the lack of detailed pictures.


When I routed it like the pic of above it was kinking and the inlet pipe wouldn’t be able to fit. So Casey suggested we just flip it over:


It’s not really pretty but it works lol, I should’ve invested in Chase Bays swivel fittings..


But yeah I have power steering again!! So that’s good, next I hope I can put my LSD in soon!

Note* I noticed fluid seaping a little from the rack ;( Not sure if it’s leaking from the chase bays line or the oem line that we unbolted for clearance to tighten the new line. If it’s the chase bays one Teflon tape! LOL or if it’s the oem one then I guess I’ll have to buy another o-ring. I’ll update this post when I figure it out. 

Update* Got it sorted out and put some pumblers tape around the threads of the AN fitting that goes into the rack.

Thank you again for reading!!

Radiator Cap Upgrade

The Build

I noticed that there would be coolant residue around the neck my radiator so I guess it was time for a new radiator cap. Wasn’t sure which brand to get but settled for a SARD one. So far I don’t see any coolant near the neck so I guess that fixed the problem haha.


Comparison with the SARD one and my previous no name rotten one lol (below):
