Hi kurosan,

Thanks for the kind words and spoon recommendation, had a look as I had never heard of the collars, but to be honest, there's a lot of other bits I would rather spend the money on at the moment, thanks for bringing them to my attention.



Thanks ridge racer, I'll certainly try.



Hi R32skyline2017,

I use one of those cheap blast cabinets you can get from the like of ebay and Machine mart, crushed glass media and just a 6" bench grinder with a wire wheel, some times smaller wire wheels in my drill for the tight areas, so nothing flashy, just what ever works.

Regards Kev.
And the wire wheel is what polishes like that?
Thatís a lot of work. But well worth it comes out looking so nice like new

Thanks Simon,

Don't know if you get, or are even set up for notifications, but for some reason I've stopped being notified when someone replies to my thread, which is a little annoying as I don't check in on a daily basis, then feel a little rude for not responding quicker to everyone that takes the time to comment.

Nice to here from you Brett,

It's been a while bud and thanks for the kind words, hey, if it ever gets done I will be more than happy to drive down and let you have a look round it, as long as there's tea and biscuits available that is, how's the little one doing, thinking about it, probably not so little now.

Yes, just the wire wheel and your right it is a lot of work, but worth it, when I first started having bits zinc plated, I soon realised most of the problems and expense involved in getting a good finish was the prep work, which a lot of companies don't want to do because it's very time consuming, hence I started doing it myself.

Regards Kev.

I started getting a few bits plated but never thought about the prep work to get a good finish.

Going to take this into account now. Always learning something new from you if not being inspired by you Kev.

Would be grateful for you help on a quick few questions. When you painted the diff housing what are you using?

Also Im planning on taking off the entire dump valve assembly to refurb, and the valve heads with the vacuum nipple have rust on the surface. What would be the best way to clean this off without damaging the inner components? Mask off properly and vapor blast or shot blast them?

Hi bud,

The light grey paint I used as a base coat is epoxy mastic and sourced from a company called rust buster, not cheap but you get what you pay for, it's the same stuff I used on the shell, then followed this with five coats of good old u-pol satin black from a rattle can, I think the main thing about getting a good finish other than the paint, is heat, when I did mine I had it sat on a couple of blocks on the top of an old cupboard so air could circulate round it, then pointed my space heater at it to keep it warm between coats, (it was freezing out side at the time) and to be honest it turned out better than I expected.

Your spot on, that's what I did, masked and vapour blasted rather than dry blasted because the main part of the valve body is aluminium and needed to be done that way for the finish that was required, unfortunately for me the vapour blaster managed to blow part of the masking tape off one of the inlet pipes on top of the valve, which led to a little of the blast slurry getting in side, a real pain in the arse, but fixable, I dried them out for a couple of days on a radiator then blew the media out with an air line, of course it wasn't that easy but you get the idea.

Anything I can help with just ask, as I've said before I'm no professional, just a normal guy like everyone else and I may get things wrong, or do things other people don't agree with, but hey, I'm not here to teach, just to share what I like doing and hopefully inspire others to have a go them selves, because if I can do it, anyone can.

Hi Kev,

Yes been a while, Iím always on here though, I have so many interests itís hard to keep up to date! Iím a Old Skool Renault fan too,
Always time for a cuppa if your in my area with or without your Skyline, my garage has the kettle continuously hot.
Yes my boy is 4 going on 5 now, But now have another in the oven growing!
Back to Skylines, I stripped down my sills to metal the other weekend & primered & undersealed. I was so happy to see no rust! Iíve kept ACF 50 inside the sills & rear wheel arches since I imported it back in 2005, The only annoying bit is the left front jacking point slightly pushed up by bad jacking. (Not me)
I look forward to seeing more updates from you.
Cheers Brett

Hi Kev
Love your dedication to the 32 xx

The wheels that were on your car when you first starting the strip down, team dynamics Jade R 18-8.5 et 30
Can you confirm the size for me and the tyre size please as I really like them and want to get some for my 94 R32
Cheers and all the best

Marl

Yes of course I can bud, it's been a while since I've looked at them so I'll check on Monday and get back to you.

Kev.

Afternoon all,

A while back I had the clutch cylinder body vapour blasted by someone different to my normal guy and once it was built up I wasn't happy, so said I'd strip it down an have it done properly to match the rest, for the doubters out there,

The finish I wasn't happy with, quite dull and marked easily,





So stripped it down and now, much better,







Had the diff cover done at the same time,







When I did the diff housing I also had a crack at tidying this up,















Not really happy with the finish as you can still see the corrosion tracks made by the leaking brake fluid, so I'm going to flat it back and try filling the marks with some fine stopper.

Also had a delivery, a few little bits for when it goes back together,



















I'd buy so much more if not for the fee's and tax's, but then again, wouldn't everyone.

Till next time,

Kev.

Hi Kev,
Did you have a look at your wheels yet , I would love to know the spec you have .
Just finding a wheel you like for a R32 among the huge choice of very expensive wheels is a minefield ***128514;***128514;***128526;***128526;

On the engine front , are you going for a mild tune to compliment your ORC clutch or back to std.

Cheers and all the best

Marl

In my head your doing all the things I tell myself I can do (yet to prove myself on that one lol)

Seriously going through this thread nearly made me break my fast haha

Amazing work and I kind of don't want it to finish because its stunning how good of a job you are doing. Keep it up mate!

Feel like a celebrity just looked at my car.. hahaha

The R34 will be a pretty mild build compared to what I am doing with me E30. Thats going to be the hard one and I hope I have the patience like you have.

Do you have a dead line you would ideally want your car done by?

Hi Mate,

Just PMSL, don't worry there's more to come, it's just that works taken over this year as usual, what can you do the bills need to be paid, money and time are being put aside though, so I can have a binge on it next year, may even get to squeeze a couple of days in before Christmas, need to finish the bungalow I'm building at the moment first, then fit my new kitchen before my wife cuts my nuts off.

Regards Kev.
