I was trying to find a pair of new bumpers for Wagon. It wasn't supposed to be a very difficult task, but it got a lot harder when spare parts storage og Nissan Club of Finland burned down. Luckily, after some hunting I now have NOS bumpers and brackets for them. Front one had waited for a suitable buyer for some time, label had a date of 12.6.1998.
From front to back: front, back and US-Sentra front bumper. I don't know why someone had that kind of part in Finland. It came with right kind of bumper bracket. Those will be installed in some distant future. Next goal is to get this inspected (needs a little bit of welding and re-adjustment of rear brakes) and wheel alignment check. Perhaps I could drive it to Nissan club summer meet in couple of weeks?
It wasn't all that bad though considering the time it has stood still. Front brakes were still too sticky and uneven and engine runs a bit too rich. That is all. I have to make a suitable carburator tool by filing a notch in flat screw driver. No more rust was found, two patches were welded before testing.
After failing inspection I drove Wagon to my home for "happy family reunion". Pics taken with my 5 € back up camera, they are a bit unsharp.
Yesterday I visited inspection center again, now with better results. There were still some difference in brakes between front corners and I had to fine tune fuel/air mixture with CO-meter. It is good for one year now and I can pat my own back for saving this to be exhanged to a electric bike, in part of scrappage scheme.
Last evening I glued traditional red stripes around the car and this morning the wheel alignments were adjusted.
