|Parking was tight, so I just pulled in and...
|Left my car there in the middle of the shop entrance lol
This time, I had ordered 3 parts - one small, one medium (hint for both of these - they are interior pieces) and then one relatively large one.
|The two small boxes and the large flat box are the parts...nothing with "Reimax" on them today unfortunately!
|This is not pretty.
Taking the insulation off was easy, using the proper tool which they lent me.
|You can see how the edges of the insulation are beginning to fray.
A few minutes later:
|It actually looks pretty nice without anything there under the bonnet...race car like?
|Old piece is rusty brown, new piece is light, almost yellow
I was surprised to learn that the new Nissan OEM replacement piece, for some reason, did not exactly match the shape one that was on my car. Either, my car had an earlier R33 piece on, or for some reason Nissan got rid of variances between the model years for replacement parts.
|The old piece - yellow where it is different than the new piece.
|Here is the new part, attached. Yellow circle on the section that is now gone.
I will continue to research this, but since I had promised my Facebook friends to post what I did today, here it is... in my next post I will post another freshening up/parts purchase I did BEFORE this one...
