Default Project:kade-t/wd21 pathfinder (ironhide)

Howdy, well I looked on all the build thread pages all the way back to 2011, and sadly because of that change over at photo bucket, all the photos of other 2 door pathys are all gone(I'm also a victim of my life's work erased due to this).


So now I got Imgur, and a new project so here I am. my other projects include a 1jz sc400 and a rb25-s13(now daily driver). both swapped by me so I know a thing or 2 about cars. this distributor stuff is kinda new and I'm not liking it but whatever.


found this gem for 1k with a knocking wrist pin down in Springfield m.o.

well shortly after some lady in front of me decided she wanted to play brake check and I lost the game.















I wasn't done with the truck I actually drove it home just fine albeit the leaky coolant, should I give up on this? seeing as it's impossible to find a 2 door pathy.

so now it's time to "fix my fuckup" now add another 1k for parts luckily the local certafit had.






I also sourced a fender from pick and pull









now it's time to start taking shit apart..
















mocked up the radiator support because my welding skills did not suffice.





so now I drove it to kcmo to finish up the last welds of the support and to patch up the final round of the wheel well, shout out to rb adrenaline and Robert bell.










and final results

so I finally got to drive my truck in depth, always puckering my butt-cheeks wondering when my motor will blow because of that pesky wrist pin knocking.

so what really irked me from the beginning is the shitty, uncomfortable, old ass seats from 1987.

im used to changing out my seats

-r32 seats in my s13
-jdm supra seats in my sc400

I usually strip the cloth off, wash it and re-hog ring the seat skins.

well I had the crazy idea that I should swap some scion tc seats into this, fabbing up some brackets. well here's how it went.

first, out goes the stock monsters.




so here is what's going in






and here is the fabbing up of the rails






here is the final installation, after 2 weekends and some moderate headaches.











apparently these seats were 2 "wide" for the pathy so it scraped up this interior panel.





so now it's onto looking for a 95 (back to stock) interior that is in much better shape, maybe I find it later?

I was also able to get a deal and secure a s14 twin cam with a 5 speed for in the end FREE... I sold the tranny and got what I needed. Drove it home well in the pathy, kinda heavy, this showed me that soon the suspension needs to be replaced, upgraded




got it off and on the stand




taking it apart slowly and lots of gunk in the head. apparently it hydrolocked because I found some water in cylinder 3.







got head off and ready to get sent to kc






on my faithful trip to Nolan's cylinder head.





I also installed a 240sx wheel and a shift knob that I love.



I really hate the square dash with a passion! I plan on getting a rounder/newer dash!

Well after driving daily for a bit putting on maybe a total of a few thousand miles on it since I brought it the EXPECTED happened, and BOOM! Threw a rod.


pulled the cap and got this foggy surprise








Luckily I wasn't too far from home and I called up my buddy and he came a few hrs later and got a tow back







well now it's time to get serious and get this back on the road before the first snowfall of next winter
