I've had an idea that may interest a few people. I thought I'd post something, to get your opinions.

I've tried to fit a new CV boot today ("Tried" because I got it all apart, and discovered Middlehurst had sent the wrong boot!)

Having done this job, I thought it might be an idea to put together a "Haynes" style set of instructions on how to do it. This would help the budding home mechanic or enthusiast who owns a GTR realise what kind of problems they might encounter before they set out to do the job.

It would also give handy tips, such as, which joints to undo to enable the removal of the driveshaft in this instance.

What dya think!!

Nigel,

If you're happy to compile it I'm sure people will send you stuff (photos included). Just don't let Abbey, Gary, SVS and the rest of them find out!:eek:

I've long thought this'd be a good idea... I've taken photo's of most of the things I've done to my car. They just need writing up into articles.

I could come up with (All for R33 GTR)

- how to change oil and filter (fairly basic!)

- how to wire in a stereo

- how to change your fuel filter

- how to fit HKS super power flow filters if you can't read japanese

- how to change brake pads (front and rear) (not that they are much different)

and coming soon...

- how to make an electrical gizmo so that your doors lock when you start the engine.

Hey thats unfair! I might not of worked on a car in a long time, but I have changed a complete exhaust system, water pump (on an old mini) distributor, and helped rebuiled an engine (on an old Manta) oh and a couple of tyres. I may not be familar round a Skyline but....I KNOW MY STUFF! :rolleyes: :D :)

Someone had to T-Cut Fuggles car and make it look white again :D ;) :p

Do you know that you can buy an Australian official Nissan workshop manual for the R32 – not exactly cheap....but somewhat useful I guess.

I reckon i'd like a signed copy, it could be a best seller for you!

I've splashed out some cash on the manual from NZ but it's an engine manual only.

Wot is the Australian manual all about????? Anyone bought it???
