I have no idea whether what he told me is true (you know those Italians), but he told me "this is a NISMO item that's not even in their catalog." Duly curious, I popped open the hood and waited to be surprised.
|What does the nice NISMO bag contain?|
|What's this? Large thin rubber rings with holes in them.|
|Plasti-Dip does wonders!|
Because I didn't source these parts myself, this means is that I have no idea what these gigantic rubber washers cost, nor whether it really is rare, or even whether Ale punked me by picking up some cheap rubber at the local DIY store and had someone at Kinkos punch holes in them. (I DID check the NISMO OMORI website but couldn't find them either...)
Anyway, installation is super easy - just take off your tower bar, make sure the surface is clean, and then place over the strut tower bolts.
|Here is Ale showing us how to do so, singlehandedly!|
|Being NISMO, of course it fits perfectly.|
Anyway, the following months of 2019 promise some interesting mods I have planned. For one, it's been over 11 years (!!) since I got the Mine's build engine installed - maybe it's time to tinker with it or improve it? My car still shows some other problems from the horrible, crap work done at Worx Autoalarm and so I really want to finish fixing all of those issues as well. So let's hope 2019 is a great year for all of us! And thanks to Ale from taking time to stop by and drop off these parts!
