Default JHerbert Racing's D21 saga

Hey everyone. I bought a 1990 Nissan D21 for a little project and for use as a 3 season daily. In the Nissan category I have owned SR powered S13 240sx that I built from stock and a 240sx convertible. Keeping with the Hardbody theme I have owned a 1995 Pathfinder that I used for a winter vehicle but that was more rust than truck. I currently own a Scion FRS that I use primarily for track duty. Below are a few pics of my previous projects.

My FRS - Track car 2013-Current


My S13 240sx - Touge racer 2009-2012


My Nissan 240sx convertible - Low cruiser 2010-2011


My 1995 Pathfinder - Winter/off-road beater 2009-2010


And finally, My 1990 Nissan D21. Here she is the day I bought her. Originally owned by an elderly man in Ohio. 125,xxx miles and one of the cleanest around for sure. It came with a Pathfinder front end, 4x4 fenders and a mint bed/tailgate that I will get around to installing at some point. My plan is to run a shock and block drop wheels/tires and a few others.

Lowered on 3" blocks and loosened the torsions with pinto shocks. Wheels and tires next.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I installed a stereo, oil change, radiator flush and ordered wheels today. 15x8-13 wheels wrapped with 205 50 15 Falkins. Also snapped a few artsy pics. Shes dirty tho. Enjoy.

That doesn't look like coolant.....probably the original coolant.


New stereo.

Wheels tires and lugs all ready to go. Getting mounted today and installed tonight.

New wheels and tires are on. I think it looks ok. It isn't where I want it yet but I'm in the process of getting 4x4 front fenders from the guy I bought the truck from. That will help the front poke. Other wise I think I am going to remove the 2nd leaf to get the rear lower then drop spindles for the front.

Took some pics at my shop with my frs. I added spring clamps to the rear to lower it a little more. Shes perfect in my eyes now. I will be looking for a good quality timing chain kit soon. I will hopefully be getting all the goodies from the previous owner soon as well.
