the old rubber hose was shot to hell. if u had seen the condition of the old hoses you woulda cuss meh

paid close to $400 or so for the pair of hose...which was kinda ok.. no parts place has that rubber flex line i had to make it (out of rubber) by trinidad hose.

Bruh.....yuh is meh padna.... and i know yuh more than willing to link meh...but da is not the issue... the issue is how i payin yuh back....i soo broke i cant pay attention or spend ah weekend....

the new (rubber) brake hose hav the pedal feelin lil soft....the old hard crack up line had the pedal feelin firm firm

( i theorize how the rubber line was old & hard there was no expansion of the hose so full fluid pressure was goin to the caliper)

the steel braided line doesnt expand or crack cause well...it braided in steel.

more important things to see about with meh small salary...

Yeah I watching those headlights but these come with those red covers which I haven't seen before.
The man was giving me a deal for the complete front so I took it.

Really tho I don't mind the old style headlights. And those metal covers seem quite rare. So it is what it is.

I've also never seen those gold emblems before too...
I also got the chrome backed side mirrors.

The car these parts came from had a vvl engine with manual gearbox. But the man told me someone bought those on the first day for quite a high price.

This is the only picture of a bluebird with a similar style to the parts I got.
It looks like special version but I have no other info on its interior or specs other than the Attesa and vvl engine the man told me the one he was selling me had.

how much you paid for the entire nose cut ???

red headlight cover is RARE AF thou..... if its metal and you WANT to re-use it... go ahead..

the reason why i say the old pattern light is failure is cause it scatters the beam differently plus theyre NON projector type - despite being black housing...i if i not mistaken - they MAY also be halogen bulb type and placing a HID bulb / kit in that is total CACA

go for the correct thing or dont bother doin it.... since you wanna make it look like mine... the real Macoy :twisted:


what gold color emblems u referrin to ?? pic of gold emblem..??
same for side mirror backing ....pics ???

would like to come and see ur car how it looks now...i cud give u tips and advice and also hep u out as necessary....

I don't have the trunk with me right now so no extra pics yet.
Look again at the emblems on the trunk. They are gold colour.
Same too for the SSS on the front grill.

thats the front lower stabilizer bar ??

cause theres also a rear lower stabilizer bar....lol

the front lower one can be bought in the bamboo for small $$$.... p11 primera bar is the same thing.
you'll also need end links - dont go with the 555 brand - use something stronger - and "U" clamps and "U" clamp rubbers. and relevant bushings ( spacers)..

i paid like $300 or so for mine... i didnt want the end links and such just the bare bar...so that how i got it at that price. i took the bar and got it blasted - remove the generic black powder coating - rust was starting to show thru- and i powder coated it blue - along with my new U clamps - i got those from the motorist.

bolted everything in...and it works fine...

i myself missing two more bars - i just need the rear lower bar and the cradle brace...then i'm good.

For any one looking to repair their U14 power antenna...

you have two options.

1. going full electronic - the car has a grid on the back glass above the defroster grid that can be used for the electronic antenna - u just need the little adapter harness box for it - it accepts the cable connection and gives you a pin connection to go onto the glass. - you can get the part from ANY crashed bluebird sylphy (G11) - yes i know its not a donor u14 but the part should work

if you want the OEM part for it
the part code is : 27983Q ( pictured as part listed "A" in the diagram below)
the full OEM part # is 28357-45V00


2 replacement Rod.
The OEM rod the plastic spine snaps off after age - brittle and the antenna cant go up / down anymore


the OEM part code is 27962
the OEM replacement part # is 28215-0E006


Image


a new rod is over $500 locally online its $30 usd from japan however if you go one ebay you can get it
NOTE its not OEM nissan but its a replacement rod -

on ebay search engine just type in " nissan 28215-0E006"

this is the seller >>>> https://www.ebay.com/itm/Power-Antenna- ... uZ&vxp=mtr



For reference its the same antenna thats used in the P11 primera and quite possibly the B15/ almiera/ y11 - / cefiro - simply once it comes powered and its a nissan of this age - then this is what you need.


things to note-
1. you will need the special tool to remove the nut or use a c Clip pliers - be gentle....
remove the nut FIRST before un doing anything in the trunk

2 be gentle with the connector it can break - the audio antenna cable is simple jack out - no special lock on it.

3. the power jack that supplies power to the motor assembly is kinda weird the lock for it is opposite and you wont be able to undo it till you get the motor out of its bracket and out in the open -

4- dont bend or cut the drain hose or the damaged antenna mast.

5. theres a plastic bush that you'll need from the old mast - DONT LOOSE IT - this is re used.

6 take your time dis assembling the motor assembly.

7 you'll need general purpose grease - clean rags - white lithium grease and alot of patience.

the general purpose grease is used inside the antenna
the lithium grease is used on the antenna mast - spray it on the mast when its extended fully - switch on and off stereo a few times to allow the grease to work into the antenna- keeps it running smoothly

when reassembling its easier when the mast is fully extended and you just have a small piece of "rat tail " to deal with rather than the mast fully closed and a long piece of plastic.



very important - your motor HAS to be functioning in order for this repair to work - if your motor isnt functioning then check that FIRST before buying a mast.
