Default 1991 wd21 terrano

Hi all bought myself a terrano today.
Got it to replace my d21 dual cab that has kicked the bucket.

Terrano is a stock as a rock 1991 2 door model with a td27t auto.
Not sure about autos but I'm gonna give it a chance to prove itself before considering swapping in a manual.
It had previously been a girls car hence the pink graphics down the side(first things to be removed ) as well as stick on chrome strips around the wheel arches(second thing to be removed).
I bought it unlicenced but it won't take much to get it ready for a roadworthy inspection.
It's got the usual tacho, speedo needle issue but it came with a replacement gauge cluster.
Also has a headlight problem caused by a faulty light switch but came with a replacement one of those too.
Only other things needed is a brake light globe and a couple of suspension bushes in the front.
Came with a brand new set of tyres, new alternator,overhauled brakes and a new exhaust.
Once she's rego'd and on the road the modifications shall begin :)

Removed the graphics and chrome strips on one side today.
I'll do the other side and then give the whole thing a going over with my buffer and a polish.
That should bring it back to life, was starting to fade in a few spots too.

Nice buy. Always liked these WD21's and the R50 Pathfinders.

Thanks guys I picked it up for $1200 and the parts needed to sort it for rego should work out around the $400 mark then inspection fee plus rego itself.
So for under 2 grand I'll have myself a good terrano.
I drove it home from perth (under a permit) and it ran great, drove great and was quite reasonable on the fuel so alls good so far.
Now I just gotta get some time to get it done.......

Looks great, be careful buffing black though. It is the hardest colour to buff and not leave swirl marks, if however you are experienced with a buff, I am sure it will look great.
I was in an automotive paint shop on Canberra a while back and they had "black polish" which is actually black in colour and they swear it is the only thing to use on black paint.
Have fun with your new acquisition, it will be a worthy replacement.
Regards, Tony

Yeah thanks mate.
Good advise, I have had experience with buffing black I painted my evolution 2 lancer black when I rebuilt it and it's a challenging colour at best.
At the end off the day though it'll be covered in mud more often than not so shouldn't see my swirls too often.

I've started on the repairs to get her ready for rego.
First up was to put in a couple of new wheel studs on the front right hub, discovered why they where missing, looks like someone lost a wheel as the nut on the lower ball joint has a portion ground down and the holes for the two missing studs where a bit flogged out.
Nothing a mig welder and a die grinder couldn't fix.
Next task discovered why it had a lot of vibration at idle, 2 shagged engine mounts left the sump sitting on the front diff ! :(
Luckily no damage to the sump, bought 2 new mounts $150 for the pair.
Pulled the old ones out and the drivers side one actually had no rubber left, will finish the job after work tonight.
