    Completely forgot another fun experience I had with the Silvia very recently. Took it out for a drive late one night with some mates through the mountains and noticed on the drive back the car handling a bit weird getting hard to steer. By the time I made it back onto normal roads, I very quickly realised my power steering was gone. Pulled over and checked the resevoir an it was completely empty. Filled it up fluid on the side of the road and almost immediately it started shooting out from the underside once steering was applied (high pressure line). Got it home eventually and investigated the issue and the fitting which was steering rack had come completely loose. Thankfully an easy fix but extremely fortunate that the fluid didn't catch the tyres causing me to spin or worse yet, the fluid caught on fire. I've been slack in putting in a fire extinguisher in the car but this was enough to prompt me to get it done. KAP Industries of course has this well sorted so got that organised fairly easily. I really would have liked to put this on the passenger side but anyway, it's done now.



    Another minor issue I noticed was that I had no fluid from my windscreen washers, thought it might just be a failing pump. Did some basic testing and noticed that a bulk of the fluid was ending up under the car, near the driver's side front tyre. Pulled out the guard liner and found the lines looking like this. The car use to be quite low when I had bought it and the guard liners had taken a beating and worn through certain sections of it and I suppose over time, the leak got worse but I didn't notice either because there was enough fluid coming through despite the damage or that I kept the car clean enough to not need it. A bit of two I would say.

    In further updates for the 110, I received a big delivery which I'm very excited about. Plan is still to stay auto because daily.

    In my everlasting quest to find parts, I finally found a pair of seats for the Silvia. The standard seats, while alright, aren't that great in term of holding you in. I found a seller locally who had a pair of Recaro SR11s for sale. These came in the Evo X and they're a very nice seat in terms of build quality, weight, OEM+ look and overall support around the shoulders, core and thighs. They didn't come with rails, but that can be sorted easily enough, although the pandemic is doing no favours for shipping prices at the moment.



    Additionally this week I picked up some Nismo items, pretty self-explanatory items. The shifter I'll actually use, though I do really like the leather Nismo one I've been running for many many years now. Also I picked up the stock air box and J-pipe from the seller of my car. The J-pipe delete hasn't really been that good for the car as many a JZX owner will know and causing stalling issues when you come off the throttle at low speeds (pronounced in the automatics). Not only that but, the intake is just sucking in the hot air, even though I've got the factory ducting pointing at the intake.
